Embedding Speech Transcription into Flash Video with Adobe Creative Suite 5

by Michael Hurwicz


This Page Provides Detailed Comparison of Adobe CS5 Speech to Text Using:

1) No Reference Script

2) A Bare Bones Plain Text Reference Script

3) A Complete Adobe Story Reference Script, but Not Embedded in the Video File

An example using an embedded Adobe Story script (an approach that uses OnLocation as an intermediary between Story and Premiere Pro) is not included here, because it was 100% faithful to the script, a state of affairs which can be easily communicated without a three-column table.

All speech analysis was performed at the "High (Slower)" setting in the Premiere Pro "Analyze Content" dialogue.

Note that the "Comments" column shows correctlty recognized words in 1) and 2) but mistakes in 3).

1) No Reference Script

Speech Analysis Reference Script Comments
[Speaker 0] Thanks for joining me Oh absolutely After After our sexy metadata talk last time I just couldn't wait to try to get

PETER CERVIERI

Thanks for joining me.

TIM SIGLIN

Oh, absolutely! After our sexy metadata talk last time, I just couldn't wait to come back.

Mistakes:

try to get

[Speaker 1] sexy and in Ensenada quickly from G and he cannot said triple axe So there it seems keynotes there is a keynote yesterday I had to me is that the tag and then the woman got staid want to give kind of a recap

PETER CERVIERI

We'll get sexy again. It's going to go quickly from G to PG and up to triple X. So, there were two keynotes. There was a keynote yesterday: Jeff Hayzlett from Kodak. And then the woman from Yahoo today. You want to give kind of a recap of the take-aways?

Mistakes:

to PG and up to triple X.

Jeff Hayzlett from Kodak.

from Yahoo

of the take-aways?

[Speaker 2]

Sure England's So just briefly Jeff yesterday Jeff's a big guy is a South Dakotan Beavers likes to dance big personality likes to ride horses has a ranch that kind of thing but I think what was most interesting to me especially where I live now in Kingsport Tennessee where we have the other half of the Eastman Eastman Chemical was to really see him talk about how to take an organization that was fairly staid and traditional and turn it into something that was the or is that has the potential to be dynamic One of things I thought he really hit on well was they have these they have these products that are pretty good in terms of these video cameras they are putting out but they had branding names like to see you one day for this the X ray and he said

TIM SIGLIN

Sure. So just briefly. Jeff, yesterday. Jeff's a big guy. He's a South Dakotan.

PETER CERVIERI

Big personality.

TIM SIGLIN

He has a big personality, likes to ride horses, has a ranch, that kind of thing. But I think what was most interesting to, me especially where I live now in Kingsport, Tennessee, where we have the other half of the Eastman, Eastman Chemical, was to really see him talk about how to take an organization that was fairly staid and traditional and turn it into something that has the potential to be dynamic. One of the things that I thought he really hit on well was, they have these products that are pretty good in terms of these video cameras they are putting out, but they had branding names like the Z18 or the ZX3, and he said ...

Mistakes:

England's

He's

Big personality.

dance

the or is

to see you one day for this the X ray

mistakes/total =

39/ 218 = 18%

success = 82%

Some surprising glitches even in the example 3):

  • misses the first character change even though it has the exact wording
  • never gets character names
  • misses the following even given the exact wording and there's no other particular interference (such as two people talking at the same time, broken speech pattern):
    • "g to pg and up to triple x"
    • "woman from yahoo"
    • "the Z18 or the ZX3"

The third item in the above list is also somewhat surprising for example 2) above, since it was provided in the bare bones reference script.

There is a sample astx at this URL you could download:

http://greendept.com/astx/

I believe this is the astx file I used in this tutorial.

@Ace
.astx files are standard XML formatted documents ( http://forums.adobe.com/thread/707301 ) so theoretically you could manually construct an .astx file and continue from there. Back in Sept. 2010, someone on the Adobe Story team mentioned making a spec public (see forum posts at above URL) but I'm not aware that this has happened yet.

Hi Michael,

I was wondering if there's another way to get the script done without using Adobe Story. I won't have internet access unfortunately to create the script file but I have access to the whole CS5 Suite.

This tutorial was very helpful otherwise!

Thanks,

Ace

Hi Amit -

I copy-and-pasted the code in from a text file. Sorry if that was confusing. The code is in the FLA that you can download with the project files (cs5_speech_transcript.fla). I also included it in the article accompanying the tutorial.

Hope this helps!

Mike

Adobe Edge Animate/The Missing Manual Software/Book Review

Increasingly, web developers are being asked to create sites that are viewable on tablets and mobile devices, as well as desktops and laptops running Windows, OS X or Linux. One of the challenges in creating a site like that is animation. Flash, for many years the preferred cross-platform animation solution, is no longer supported on many tablets and mobile devices. Michael looks for - and finds - answers within Adobe's Edge Animate.
