You may not realize it, but you’re probably already using Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) in your daily life today. ASR is fast becoming a common consumer technology through services such as Amazon’s Alexa, Apple’s Siri, and Hey Google, and it is now also a part of Echo360. Built on the same speech recognition engine that powers Amazon’s Alexa, Echo360’s ASR solution is available now through a simple click of a button by an administrator.
ASR automatically creates text transcripts from the audio track in your videos and makes them available for students and instructors to view directly from within our Classroom player. This new capability provides significant new benefits, including a pathway to affordable closed captioning, improved learning, and simplified search and navigation. Let’s take a look at these three powerful ways that ASR will improve the Echo360 experience for all users.
