Sometimes it's the little things that have a big impact. Live Caption forcould just be one of those features. You can transcribe the audio files in any video in no time: podcasts, CNET videos, the shaky handheld camera your sister took from her children. Live Caption is not limited to a YouTube video or Google Duo call.
Imagine that you are in a crowded or noisy place and can not hear what is happening in the video. Or the audio on the clip is mangled. Maybe you or someone you love is hard to hear, the person speaking has speech patterns that you can not understand properly, or you want to keep the volume extremely low so you do not disturb the people around you. Live Caption can help.
Live Caption uses machine learning on the device, a technology similar to Smart Reply that generates the small suggestions that you see when you send an e-mail under your Composition window. All transcriptions take place on your phone and Google indicates that the transcripts are neither stored nor otherwise accessed. Live Caption will be available for Android Q later this year.
The demo I saw on Google I / O was a prerecorded video. So we need to bring the feature live before we know how fast the transcription is going. But after the Blitzrundendranskription, which we saw with theGoogle has certainly pointed out that he has the technology that makes this possible.
