How to use automatic captions in StreamText

StreamText now has the ability to create captions directly from an audio source. It is very easy to use and allows you to have a backup option when a human captioner is not an option. This is machine generated captioning and not a claim that this caption service is ADA compliant and we make no claims that it is.

Pricing for ASR is listed here.
