EEG Updates Lexi Leash Service to Simplify Automatic Captioning Functionality

EEG has expanded the functionality of Lexi, its cloud-hosted automatic captioning service: Lexi Leash, a Windows application that Lexi users can connect to their EEGCloud account to create, monitor, stop, restart, and log Lexi jobs.

Using Lexi Leash, Lexi users can:

  • Easily track Lexi usage quotas
  • Restart previous jobs with the click of a button
  • Monitor current job status
  • Avoid unintended charges from jobs accidentally left running

Created in tandem with customer input, Lexi Leash is ideal for users, such as municipalities, who are not staffed with expert captioners or video content producers and would benefit from easier monitoring Lexi.

With Lexi Leash, users can be confident that Lexi is turned on and off only when needed. Users can also easily replay previous Lexi jobs, obtain a comprehensive usage report for billing, and quickly export project metadata (such as start/stop time and Access Codes) to Excel for streamlined reporting.

With its intuitive interface, Lexi Leash makes new project setups simple with the ability to create templated jobs, allowing staff to carry over voice model selection, caption position, speaker definitions, and more from previous jobs.

“Lexi Leash significantly reduces the amount of time, experience, and real-time monitoring required to start and finish automatic captioning projects,” says Bill McLaughlin, VP of Product Development, EEG.

Lexi is capable of delivering over 90% accuracy in English, Spanish, and French for many common media types – optimal for improving compliance and accessibility on currently uncovered material. As a cloud service, Lexi instinctively learns new data for global news and entertainment. Lexi can also monitor user-supplied URLs to absorb and leverage new data to match current on-air media transcriptions.
