A practical application of current technologies is realized by the teleprompter specialist Autoscript with the new program called Voice for the tiresome problem of correctly timed scrolling of teleprompter texts. The idea is simple: by means of a continuous comparison of the spoken text via speech recognition with the speaker&s text, Autoscript, which is responsible for scrolling the text, always knows exactly where the speaker is in the text and can thus always move the text on the teleprompter display automatically at the right time. This replaces the traditional control of the teleprompter text by hand or foot by the speaker.
Developed as part of the WinPlus-IP professional IP-enabled TelePrompting solution for live television production, the Autoscript Voice teleprompter control software is a powerful tool that can be used in a variety of applications. Autoscript Voice actively monitors the production audio feed to automatically advance the script as words are spoken from it. Real-time speech recognition combined with proprietary algorithms and pattern matching ensures that the script always moves forward in perfect synchronization with the presenter.
The speech output even pauses automatically for adlibs (spontaneous utterances that deviate from the script) and resumes scrolling when the presenter resumes reading the script. This allows him to comfortably read the script and speak without being distracted by controlling the teleprompter.
Autoscript automatically handles numerous script and show formats, can be used by multiple presenters, and can work simultaneously with other Autoscript scrolling control devices. Autoscript Voice was developed in close collaboration with a major U.S. television station over a three-year period.
The Autoscript Voice teleprompting control system can be used to control output to EPIC IP and EVO IP prompt monitors and Xbox IP scroll engines, and is available for demonstration now from Autoscript representatives.
