LOVO has been really useful in our social media production. It has allowed us to generate voice-overs and character dialogue for some of our output. We use LOVO as part of our script writing process to preview copy and depending on the project, deliver the recording. Being able to audition from a great range of voices and delivery styles, with a script in realtime, is very advantageous and helps us achieve client approval so much quicker.

For Spiral we had the challenge of having voice tapes that were somewhat gender neutral and to sound nothing like any other of the Saw franchise films. I came up with the idea of an A.I. style of voice. Going through LOVO’s library of voices we came across a female voice that spoke the words very well for clarity. When we pitched and slowed down the wav files, we got exactly what we needed. Clear, neutral, and weird! Thanks LOVO!

I used LOVO to create the spoken intro and the outro. I was really amazed at how easy it was to use it. You just basically enter the sentences you want to speak, you select the speaker that you want to use, and you can already download the audio file. Thanks a lot for the service!

We used LOVO's Speech Synthesis and TTS technologies to create a special product feature for our Toonation creators. Each creator recorded a short script to clone their voice, which they could use to create content on their own, and also allow their fans to use when the fans made donations to them in their channels. Both the creators and the fans loved the freshness of this new feature and of its quality. The key factor was that LOVO was able to capture each creator's tone, pronunciation, character, and the general speaking habits to really encapsulate their persona.

All you need to know about auto generated subtitles

Subtitles refer to written versions of spoken dialogue, narration, or other audio components in multimedia content such as videos or films. They typically appear at the bottom of the screen and offer a textual transcription of the audio in either the original language or a translated form.

Why do you need speech to text subtitles?

There are several purposes for the use of subtitles:

1. Accessibility: By making the content understandable for people who are deaf or have difficulty hearing, they ensure it is accessible to everyone.
2. Multilingual Support: Subtitles serve the purpose of translating or providing captions in various languages, thereby making the content accessible to a broader global audience.
3. Improved Comprehension: Subtitles can help enhance comprehension of the content, particularly in cases where accents, dialects, or complicated dialogues are involved.
4. Environmental Considerations: Through speech to text subtitles viewers can keep up with the dialogue even in noisy or distracting surroundings, like crowded public spaces, by using subtitles.
5. SEO: Adding subtitles to video content can enhance its discoverability by enabling search engines to index and rank it more effectively.

Using speech to text subtitles improves the approachability and practicality of multimedia material, thereby rendering it more comprehensive, understandable, and captivating to a varied viewership.

What is the difference between static and animated subtitles?

Adding subtitles to video content is crucial as it offers a text-based way of communicating information to the audience. Subtitles can be classified into two types - static and animated.

Subtitles that are static remain fixed at the bottom of the screen and do not move while a video is playing. These types of subtitles are typically used in conventional content such as documentaries and movies. Static subtitles provide a stable reference for text, which makes them simple and consistent.

While traditional subtitles are static and display the text on the screen, animated subtitles are more dynamic and involve movement, changes, or additional effects to the text during video playback. This type of subtitle is often used in creative, artistic, or youth-oriented videos to make the text more visually appealing.

How do audio to text subtitles work?

Automatic audio to text subtitles, which are also referred to as closed captioning, are generated utilizing speech recognition technology and natural language processing.

To start, spoken content from an audio or video file is uploaded. Then, an automatic speech recognition (ASR) system is used to convert the spoken content into written text.

Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) technology is capable of recognizing individual words and converting spoken content into text. In order to improve accuracy, the generated text can undergo Natural Language Processing (NLP), which can rectify errors, identify context, format the text for better readability, and add punctuation.

To ensure that the text in a video appears on the screen at the right time, timestamps are added to each line of text. Once the text has been finalized with timestamps, it is formatted and either included in the video file or provided as a separate subtitle file, with SRT being the most commonly used format.

The captions are commonly exhibited at the lower section of the display and can be modified based on the preferred font, size, and design.

What is an SRT file?

SRT files also referred to as SubRip Subtitle files, are a highly prevalent format used for saving closed captions or subtitles in video content. These files are written in plain text and can be easily read by humans. They contain timed lines of text instructing when specific content should be displayed on the screen while watching videos.

SRT files have gained popularity due to their compatibility with various video players and editing software. They prove to be a convenient and universal way of adding subtitles or closed captions to videos. One of their significant applications is translating subtitles into different languages while ensuring proper timing for accessibility. When you use Genny to auto-generate subtitles, you have the option to download them as an SRT file or hardcode them into your video.

What are hardcode subtitles?

Subtitles that are embedded into the video image during encoding are known as hardcoded subtitles, open captions, or burned-in subtitles. These subtitles cannot be customized or turned off by the viewer and are always visible at the bottom of the video frame.

Subtitles play a crucial role in videos, where they are a permanent and vital part of the content. This is especially true for foreign language films or videos that contain essential dialogues.

When should you use subtitles?

Including audio to text subtitles can improve accessibility, increase engagement, and enhance understanding. While there may be various reasons for doing so, the most prevalent ones are:

✅ AccessibilitySubtitles are essential for those who are hard of hearing or deaf.
✅ Global AudiencesThe use of audio to text subtitles enables content to be accessible to people from different language backgrounds and international audiences.
✅ ClarityIn environments with a lot of background noise, they enhance the transparency of spoken dialogue and make it easier for the viewers to follow the content.
✅ SEOAdding subtitles to video content not only helps to improve its search engine optimization (SEO) and comply with regulations but also increases engagement and retention. Moreover, it makes the content accessible to a broader range of audiences.

Subtitles can enhance the experience of various audiovisual mediums, and their usage should be determined by the objectives of the content and the requirements of the intended audience.

How do I make my own subtitles?

Creating speech to text subtitles can be done in a few easy steps:

1. You can use Genny to upload either a video in the mp4 format or a script in either .docx or .txt file format.
2. Click on the "Subtitle" icon.
3. You can choose between three ways of adding subtitles to your video: automatic generation, manual entry, or uploading an SRT file.
4. Choose your font, color, and style (animated or static.)

Once your audio to text subtitles are generated, and you complete your work, you can obtain your subtitles either as a distinct SRT file or as hardcoded subtitles within your video.

What is the difference between closed captions, open captions, and subtitles?

You can achieve the display of text on a video screen to convey spoken content through various methods, such as open captions, closed captions, and subtitles. Although they all aim to serve the same purpose, their characteristics and functionality set them apart.

Open CaptionsOpen captions are captions that are permanently embedded into the video and cannot be turned off or customized by the viewer. They are always visible and are displayed every time the video is played. Open captions are beneficial when the creator wants to ensure that the captions are present at all times and cannot be altered. They are usually used when captions are vital for comprehending the content.
Closed CaptionsViewers can turn on or off closed captions while watching a video, which gives them the freedom to control whether or not they want to see the captions. These captions are kept in separate files and can be added or removed from the video during playback. They are frequently used to meet legal requirements for accessibility, making the content available to people with hearing difficulties. Closed captions are commonly used in television broadcasts, online streaming, and educational videos.
SubtitlesThe primary purpose of subtitles is to translate spoken content or help viewers who might struggle with understanding the spoken language due to various factors such as accents, dialects, or background noise. Similar to closed captions, subtitles can be turned on or off by the viewer. They are widely used for translating content into different languages, thus making it accessible to a broader global audience.

To summarize, open captions are constantly visible and cannot be disabled, whereas closed captions are adjustable and frequently utilized for accessibility. On the other hand, subtitles are mainly used for translation or to improve comprehension and can be turned on or off by the viewer.
