One of the most impressive new features in AST’s toolset is the CaptionSync Smart Player™. This video player with interactive transcript features moves captioning beyond its original purpose, taking advantage of the captioning data to create a more engaging viewer experience. With the CaptionSync Smart Player the audio track is synchronized with the transcript, which allows each sentence or phrase to be highlighted as it is being played. Viewers also have the ability to click on individual words in the transcript to jump to the specific point in the video, or to look up the word in a dictionary or encyclopedia. Another exciting feature allows you to easily generate closed captioning and transcripts for online videos you don’t own, including YouTube videos. You can learn exactly how to caption online videos you don’t own in our support center. Other features, listed below, include ways to search and share the video.
