Williams AV announced something called Caption Assist, an AI-based, real-time open captioning and audio archiving system. Powered by Google’s artificial intelligence platform, Caption Assist can transcribe up to 27 languages and 70+ dialects with up to 94% accuracy.

Caption Assist employs a simple iOS and Android app for easy system setup and control. Billing is handled via Google Play or Apple App Store for an easy, fast and secure transaction. Simply purchase the block of time, hit start and the speech to text open captioning and archiving will begin.

The educational benefits of open captioning make the Caption Assist a great fit for people who are visual learners, learning a new language or in an environment that isn’t suitable for sound re-enforcement. The Caption Assist is also an alternative solution for assistive listening needs and caters to people in the deaf community who don’t know sign language. The user can also change text size, color, background, location and alignment.
