EUROSPEECH 2003 - INTERSPEECH 2003
This paper describes the system currently under development at CRIM whose aim is to provide real-time closed captioning of live TV broadcast news in Canadian French. This project is done in collaboration with TVA Network, a national TV broadcaster and the RQST (a Quebec association which promotes the use of subtitling). The automated closed-captioning system will use CRIM's transducer-based large vocabulary French recognizer. The system will be totally integrated to the existing broadcaster's equipment and working methods. First "on-air" use will take place in February 2004.
