Captionfy integrates with OpenAI's Whisper

January 27, 2023

OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT and DALL·E 2, has developed Whisper, an open source neural net that offers automatic speech recognition (ASR) with incredibly high accuracy. After comparing subtitles made with their model with existing human made subtitles from Captionfy, we noticed how accurate it is, and how much value it can bring to our platform.

How can I test it?

Captionfy is a subtitling platform built for YouTube videos. If you want to see Whisper's speech recognition quality by yourself, you only need a YouTube video link and a user account on Captionfy.

Every user has a 10 minutes free credit to test this feature, so we recommend you test it out with shorter videos initially.

Where can I find this feature?

When you paste a YouTube video link on Captionfy's search, you are redirected to that video's page within Captionfy. In that page you will find a "Create subtitles" button. You just need to click that button and choose to auto generate subtitles using Whisper from that dialog.

After that, you only need to wait for a notification until Captionfy finishes processing the subtitles for you.

*Make sure to tell us what you think

You will notice that this feature is marked as Beta when you use it. So if you encounter problems or quality issues, please let us know using the Feedback button in every page. Hint: You can also let us know if you like it.
