If you are an owner of an Amara team...
You can choose to incorporate machine-assisted captioning (MAC) in English into your workflow for $0.50 for each video minute of spoken language. If you are a current Amara team owner or Enterprise client interested in using machine-assisted captioning in your workflow, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can set up your MAC team.
Your email should include:
Current team name
Please note: We do not currently support machine-assisted translation. If your video contains audio in a language other than English, the captioning software will create subtitles as if English is being spoken.
If you already have a MAC team...
Requesting machine-assisted captions for a video:
Create a subtitle request and set the work team to your designated MAC team. Your source team should receive subtitles within 2 hours from submitting the request. If the subtitle page for the video still reads “provider request in progress” after that time, please submit a support ticket by emailing email@example.com so that we can troubleshoot why the request is not completing.
Your support ticket should include:
Note: For videos longer than 2 hours, allow for extra time before submitting a support ticket.
To avoid the failure of a MAC request, please make sure your video:
Has at least a couple of sentences of audio content in English
Has the highest quality audio possible
MAC works best for videos with minimal background noise with one person speaking at a time.
Whether or not you choose to create a MAC team, you can continue to create subtitle requests manually and automatically within your teams.
