New Members PandaEye Posted September 24, 2018 at 05:14 PM New Members Report Share Posted September 24, 2018 at 05:14 PM I'm interested in creating a tool that can instantly extract Chinese Subtitles that are physically embedded from Any Chinese video and output to a text file with time stamps--unlocking an endless supply of the highest Quality learning resource (native content, audial, visual, transcriptions). Transcriptions can be imported into Pleco's Screen Reader for immediate translations of the script without having having to manually search word definitions and can simultaneously be followed along while watching the video. Other apps can also be used like Chrome's Zhongwen Popup Dictionary, Hanping's Chinese Popup or any other method for more rapid and rich learning. In order to make this tool a reality it would have to be sold as service in order to compensate those build and maintain the tool; the service would be a site/app where you provide a video/url and pay an inexpensive price per video hour/subscription and the hosted software would immediately deliver you the transcription file. The software that extracts the subtitles would be required to be built on deep/machine learning principles (Artificial Intelligence). I've begun inquiring ML Engineers about their estimated cost to create this tool (Chinese engineers could also be potentially leveraged) and I intend to create a Kick Starter/funding campaign with the goal of creating the software, website/app and maintaining and improving the service if funding is met. Link to inquiry of ML Engineers: https://www.reddit.com/r/deeplearning/comments/9iicq7/request_for_quotation_of_a_use_case_from_the_dl/ What do you think is the size of the market for this service, language learners and other use cases included? There would need to be enough people interested to meet funding otherwise it couldn't happen. What are your thoughts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
