Process/Work Description

Step 1: Produce a true and accurate transcript.

Step 2: Use the transcript to synchronize all respective words to respective scenes in video. This step is the art in the science, including use of language mastery, understanding of culture(s), i.e., deaf culture, localization, and various technologies. The viewing experience must be one of seeing not-too-few and not-too-many words per scene. The resulting product -- a timed-text -- is transmitted to a Video Manager who uploads this to the respective video.
