Hey PH, I’m Oliver
@NeilMody and I are the founders of the video creation platform Headliner. Today, we are excited to introduce you to one of our latest projects within Headliner, Video Transcription.
We’ve built a free tool that allows video creators to save time by automating the once time-consuming video transcription process and wanted you to check it out. Here’s how our new Headliner Video Transcription works:
🎥 You upload your video
✨ Headliner transcribes it for you
🙌 Customize your captions & you’re ready to go
Look forward to hearing your feedback and will be happy to answer questions!
@neilmody @oliver_wellington Awesome idea! Definitely makes things easier when it comes to making videos :)
@neilmody @oliver_wellington Great to see you here - I've loved how you have continued to develop the app and the transcription is so good now - thanks for creating Headliner
Great application you have there! I'm totally intrigued by it! Will definitely give it a go, just a question, how many languages does Headliner support or what future languages you are expanding on?
Will definitely love if it can support more languages or maybe even translation into other languages from one!
@jmtiong the transcription supports the following languages:
Afrikaans (South Africa)
Czech (Czech Republic)
English (United Kingdom)
English (New Zealand)
English (South Africa)
English (United States)
Spanish (Costa Rica)
Spanish (El Salvador)
Spanish (United States)
Spanish (Puerto Rico)
Spanish (Dominican Republic)
Zulu (South Africa)
Norwegian Bokmål (Norway)
Sinhala (Sri Lanka)
Tamil (Sri Lanka)
Arabic (United Arab Emirates)

Arabic (State of Palestine)
Korean (South Korea)
Chinese, Mandarin (Traditional, Taiwan)
Chinese, Cantonese (Traditional, Hong Kong)
Chinese, Mandarin (Simplified, Hong Kong)
Chinese, Mandarin (Simplified, China)
@jmtiong it'd be cool to do a translation feature too - some users have been doing that manually now, using google translate and then copy and pasting the translation in.
@oliver_wellington thanks for the list! Ohh I see but I can't wait for it to have a translation feature! :D
@jmtiong @oliver_wellington Heya, Oliver! Congrats on the launch! I think some would be awesome to add an option for professional translation too. For example, if you have users who do captions for their professional videos I think Google Translate is not always enough, so it would be cool if they could hire professional freelance translators from your app directly. That way your customers could an additional service without leaving the app and you could also earn a commission on providing this extra service.
Just an idea. I hope you like it. :)
By the way, we have a online community with 3000 professional translators so it would be cool if we could collaborate somehow on this feature in the future :)
This looks like a great tool. Whilst YouTube viewers usually have their sound on for videos, on other social networks, studies have shown that a large percentage have their audio muted whilst watching/scrolling through videos on other networks like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. So being able to add these captions will add a whole new dynamic.
The only area I can see this being an issue is where the video has a background music/song, as this would cause the system to struggle to pick up the voice correctly and provide accurate captions.
Overall, a very exciting product and I look forward to trying it out.
@productpearson That's spot on - the transcription works best when the voices are loud, clear, and ideally, isolated without background music.
Looks great, but I think the words roll out a bit too fast. Maybe have the words appear one by one for a more natural feel?
@enjoythecode there are different word transitions you can choose, but yes, the speed of the words is something we are working to make customizable, as different people have different needs
Thank you sooo much ! I have looking everywhere for this type of product !!!! Cherry on the cake, it is very well done.
Great! Looking forward to trying :)
@baboyan_mary awesome, let us know if any questions come up!
Must have it for my instagram account
@igityan_hayarpy cool - def get in touch if we can help with anything
Cool! The transcription looks very accurate. Mind sharing what service do you use to create it?
@destinerio sure - it's google!
Just joined the site and guys, I'm very VERY impressed! We work with a lot of clients in managing their social media and one problem they often face is creating fast social content. Normally we have templates in After Effects or Premiere Pro but THIS is killer.
Excited to see how this grows. Would be interested to maybe speak to you directly as well as I run feedsauce.com and we work with many brands and create their social content. Would be good to off-shoot them to your service somehow as well.
@omarchoudhry def - let's chat - info @ headliner.app
This is BTW is definitely a black swan for some big brothers both by distribution policy/business model versus ease of use/quality of results
Great tool! Just what I was looking for, thanks so much guys :)
