Caption metadata

The ability to add caption metadata allows you to add more information to your captions, beyond what's being said at that point in time. Currently, CaptionHub supports two kinds of metadata:

1. Speaker identification

2. New paragraph flags


Speaker detection

If you've enabled Speaker detection, then our speech recognition engine will attempt to label captions with who's speaking. CaptionHub will label the first speaker with “S1", and subsequent speakers with “S2”, “S3” … and so on. This is a useful starting point, but you'll probably want to change these labels to reflect who's actually speaking.


1. First, click on a caption metadata tag, which appears next to the caption numbers in the spreadsheet view on the Edit page. This'll open a pop-up window.

2. Next, click on the Manage speakers link. This'll change the view to something that looks like this:

3. Now, add your speakers, clicking 'Add speaker' after each one. You'll only need to do this once, for each project. Once you're finished, click on the "Manage metadata" link.

4. Now, simply select your speaker from the drop-down list. If you have two speakers talking on the same caption, you might want to select a Secondary speaker, too. (Make sure that each speaker has their own line in the caption.). Please note the current transcript output that supports and reflects changes made to speaker identification is DOCX (Word).


New paragraph flags

Transcribed text can be difficult to read, when it's output as a big block of text. For some of our export formats, we offer the option to break it up with paragraph breaks. To define a new paragraph, simply click on the paragraph button. This will mark the start of a new paragraph in your transcript; to remove it, just click again.
