The Challenge

Antena 3 CNN had been searching for an audio-to-text transcription solution for a long time. They had tried many speech-to-text solutions, but were not satisfied with their accuracy and found them to be very expensive.

Time is money in media production. Whether you are a producer, editor, or journalist, one thing is certain: there is never enough time in the day to complete your work. Thanks to the introduction of artificial intelligence, TV broadcasters can now transcribe and search inside automatically generated transcription with ease. This allows them to focus on perfecting the story instead of wasting time transcribing or searching for key quotes. In this context, Antena 3's main objective was to find the right speech-to-text solution provider to assist with the heavy task of transcribing, at a reasonable price.

Big quote

"The automatically transcribed text can be easily edited and modified as needed. This is useful in situations where corrections or adjustments need to be made to the transcription to ensure greater accuracy. Automated transcripts can then be shared and distributed more easily among multiple users, facilitating collaboration and information exchange.”
