SmartCaption, software for the automatic positioning of captions


Summary: Our SmartCaption application is software that aims at minimizing human effort in the course of captioning a video. The software allows the execution of the three main tasks of a captioning session: The edition of text, its synchronization to facilitate its reading and its automatic positioning to avoid displaying the content over important visual elements already present such as text or a human face. 

Partner: This project was financed in part by the NSERC.
