Comprompter Caption Central to offer voice recognition captioning

Comprompter has announced Caption Central, a closed-captioning system that incorporates voice recognition captioning.

Caption Central is a single touch-screen computer that allows one person to control all captioning from any newsroom system. Users can type in adlibs or live breaking news or speak into the headset mic and the words are automatically turned into caption text.

Caption Central performs a context comparison and tries to select the most appropriate word; it even does spellchecking. Caption Central is a stand-alone system that can output captioning for the Comprompter NewsKing newsroom system as well as other leading newsroom systems.

A USB-based audio mixer allows a live studio voice, such as from weather or sports, to speak directly into Caption Central and turn unscripted words into captioned text. Incoming text is recorded automatically for a safety record and for later editing processing into other document formats.
