iCap Voice Update: Introducing Full World Language Support

EEG

EEG Video has announced a new update for iCap Voice, a solution for generating live caption data from a variety of input sources.

With this update, iCap Voice (aka iCap VC) now provides full world language input support including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Arabic, Hebrew, and more. As a result, users can now provide real-time on-screen captioning for live events and video in many languages where previously few, if any, professional live video transcription workflows were available.

Transcribing typists or voice writers using software like Dragon Naturally Speaking can now flow text directly into the iCap VC window and see it appear in real-time on the outputs of EEG captioning products, such as the AV610 live display captioning decoder, or Falcon, an RTMP captioning system that also supports many world languages.

Release details include:

  • This feature (included in iCap 2.14.0) supports all Unicode-compatible languages in iCap VC.
  • Users can feed voice/typing/text files in ANY language. Files must be UTF-8 encoded.
  • This feature works well for open captions. For closed captions, language compatibility with regional television standards or third-party video players should be verified.
  • This feature is also compatible with select settings in EEG’s Alta Software Caption Encoder for Live IP Video.
  • Related output options for EEG Falcon Live Streaming RTMP Caption Encoder to be released soon.
