SpeakerText accelerates processing time while providing high quality video transcription. Our paper-shredder like technology splits video files into 10-second clips before dispatching them to thousands of trained and dedicated cloud workers. SpeakerText’s shredded clips are assigned to a hand-picked, closely managed workforce as opposed to anonymous workers used by others. This ensures control over the process and fast, accurate video transcription.
Audiences no longer need to scan an entire video to find the information they seek. SpeakerText’s interactive caption plugin, CaptionBox, has advanced playback capability making it easy for viewers to find and even share specific moments from your videos.
SpeakerText integrates with leading publishing platforms through a flexible API providing for the seamless transfer of data that accelerates the publishing process.

Installation Guide

To connect your Kaltura library, you will need to provide SpeakerText a couple of tokens associated with your Kaltura account. The tokens are used to authenticate with your Kaltura account. Once connected, media from your Kaltura library is automatically synced with SpeakerText. From there, ordering transcripts can be done with just a few clicks. When SpeakerText is done transcribing your videos, the caption files will be automatically posted back to your Kaltura account.

  • Log in to your SpeakerText account and go to the library page: http://app.speakertext.com/library
  • Click on the plus icon to link with a new library.
  • Select Kaltura from the list of supported platforms.
  • You will be prompted to provide a Partner ID and Administrator Secret for your Kaltura account. Fill in the necessary tokens.
  • To locate your Kaltura tokens, Log in to the Kaltura Management Console. Navigate to Settings --> Integration Settings. The Partner ID and Administrator Secret are located in the top left panel.

After a successful authentication, a Kaltura icon will appear in the list of linked libraries. Content from Kaltura is automatically synced to your SpeakerText Media Library. Also, when necessary, you can always re-sync by hitting the refresh icon.
To order a transcript, simply select the videos you would like to transcribe and click the Checkout Now button to complete the order.

When the transcript is ready, the caption file in SRT format is posted back to your Kaltura account and automatically associated with the appropriate video entry.
