Sasquatch user information.
Create a project, select the language of the speakers and upload an MP4 clip. Sasquatch works best for short videos up to 5 minutes in length that are recommended for social media viewing. The audio from the video file is extracted and processed and any speech found is converted automatically into a sequence of captions using the timing of the speakers in the video.
When processing completes, the generated captions are displayed over the video for review and adjustment. Speech recognition is never 100% perfect, but Sasquatch makes it easy to correct any errors and to add captions where the recognition process was unable to find any speech. The sasquatch system also prompts the user to create new captions to identify sound effects or music for example.
Once you are happy with your captions they can be downloaded in a number of different formats for use with a variety of online video providers.We plan to support professional caption formats so your captions can be used in other ways, e.g. translation.We also plan to add the ability to download video files with the captions burnt-in for those platforms that do not support separate caption files.
Sasquatch has just completed Beta test and is now available to the general public. A marketing campaign will be launching the product more formally in the next few months. If you would like to be an early user then use the 'Sasquatch Now' button to sign in and create an account.
Sasquatch is specifically designed for fast captioning of short social media videos. Video lengths are restricted to 10 minutes and a maximum of 500Mb each in size. Ultra High definition videos (above HD) will take longer to process and users may experience issues (e.g. paused playback) during editing.
Sasquatch creates a caption file that can be used to add captions to video hosted on social media sites. Unfortunately some social media video can only be captioned by 'burning' the caption text into the video picture. We recommend using your Sasquatch caption file with video processing tools (e.g. VLC or Handbrake) to 'burn' your captions into your video.
One of our Beta testers has just posted a lovely comment on Facebook and Twitter! Thanks Adam!
We recently demonstrated the Sasquatch system at IBC 2018. You can take a look at a couple of videos of the event here and here. It was also the first time the development teams had met face to face!
