WebVTT caption transcription app

Activity: Other activity typesOther


This open-source, R-based web application allows the conversion of video captions (subtitles) from the Web Video Text Tracks (WebVTT) Format into plain texts. For this purpose, users upload a WebVTT file with the extension of 'vtt' or 'txt'. Automatically, metadata such as timestamps are removed, and the text is formatted into a paragraph. The result is displayed on the website, and can be downloaded as .docx and .txt documents. Overall, this application serves to improve the accessibility of video captions.
