Introducing Caption.Ed Notes, Caption.Ed

We’re delighted to announce the beta release of Caption.Ed Notes. 

We’re passionate about helping people work and study effectively. Captions are proven to help comprehension and recall when watching live and pre-recorded media and our transcripts provide an essential tool to review what was said after the event…but we wanted to take this one step further…

What is Caption.Ed Notes?

Notes provide you with a personal set of notes for any media that’s been captioned using Caption.Ed. 

Notes start with a transcript. We take the transcript for your meeting, lecture or event and at the click of a button generate a set of Notes for you. We’ve utilised our own version of the Cornell notes method as we believe this provides a simple and effective way to make your notes. It has three parts:

  1. Summary: we automatically generate a summary of your transcript using our powerful extractive summarisation AI technology. This allows you to quickly review what was said without the need to read through the full transcipt. You can edit and format your summary to make it even easier to use.
  2. Tags: we use keyword extraction to pull out the most important phrases from your transcript. At the moment you can’t chnage these but we’re working on allowing you to edit, add and remove tags. You’ll also be able to search but them in the future.
  3. Detailed Notes: you’re Detailed Notes is the full transcript of the media. You can edit and format your detailed notes.

Once you’re happy with you notes, you can download them as a Word document or share them with anyone through a link. Just click “Share” in the top right corner.

But wait, how is this different to a transcript? 

Good question! Within Caption.Ed we aim to have one transcript for each piece of media that we provide captions for. This means that if two people watch the same lecture with Caption.Ed they will both see the same captions and be able to download the same transcript. This has the benefit that is there’s a word is wrong within the captions, an authorised admin can use the transcript editor to update the transcript and correct the mistake. The captions are then perfect for everyone.

With Notes, each person has their own set of notes. So if two people watch the same video they would receive the same captions but can generate their own set of Notes. They can then edit their notes to highlight the information that’s most useful for them. Each set of notes is unique to the individual and can be shared with others or downloaded.
