Which motor is behind the caption tool in Studio

Jump to solution

Wondering if it is at adaptive and learning, e.g. Norwegian dialects?

Hello @b_s_torset 

I'm not sure which motor is behind Studio Captions but I did find a few resources that may be of use to you. Studio  Captions does support  Norwegian and it appears that it at one point could auto generate Bokmål and Nynorsk but it may not have both of those options anymore:

There is also a release notes in that thread that mentions the languages and how to upload your own custom language to Studio. If you aren't seeing the dialect you need or it simply isn't translating accurately enough for you, you can upload your own custom captions which you may need in this instance:

Hopefully this helps!

Thanks a lot! Yes, Norwegian is supported and quite good if one speaks close to Bokmål and Nynorsk (written languages) and articulate well. But with all our different dialects there are plenty of possbile misunderstandings. Just heard of a caption system that learns our main dialects. Will definately follow the thread you're mentioning, to see if we can help the system ourselves. Thanks again!
