Accessibility NYC Meetup – Mar 5 2019
Why Human Captioning? – Mirabai Knight
AI OVERLAY VERSION (for comparison purposes)
This talk will address the current state of the art in automated live captioning and discuss why a qualified human captioner is still the most appropriate choice in nearly all circumstances. It will also indulge in a little speculation about the future of live captioning and how the human and automated realms are likely to intersect going forward.
Mirabai Knight is a Certified Realtime Captioner and Registered Diplomate Reporter, certified at 260 words per minute. She is the founder of the Open Steno Project and particularly loves captioning medical school classes and tech conferences.
