TDI seeks Product Manager for a Speech-to-Text Captioning/Caption Correction Project

May 19, 2016 in Captioning / Relay, Employment

 

 

TDI is seeking a talented and versatile Product Manager to lead the development of a Speech-to-Text Captioning/Caption Correction product.  The ideal candidate will have a strong, clear commitment to meeting the purpose, goals, and timelines.  The product seeks to create scalable access to low-cost, accurate captions for live events by combining speech-to-text technology with real-time caption corrections made by designated peers.  These services will allow event participants (who have permission), to make corrections to captions in real-time during events.  Everyone viewing the captions, will see the corrected captions instantly.  This technology enables the provision of highly accurate, low-cost, captioning services wherever the use of professional captioning services are not logistically, technically, or financially feasible.  TDI has a subcontract with IDEAL Group, Inc. to develop, implement, and maintain the captioning service.  The web-based service will be accessible using Internet-connected devices running a variety of operating systems.
