Axle AI has launched Ascribe.ai, which the company is calling a breakthrough in affordability for the artificial intelligence driven transcription of videos. Ascribe.ai is available directly from the Adobe Exchange Application Marketplace at no charge, and includes one hour of free transcription of video content on registration.
Subscriptions begin at $4.95 per month for 2.5 hours of transcription ($1.98 per hour), and even lower per-hour prices in larger quantities. Languages supported in the initial release are English (both American and British dialects), Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Korean.
Rather than sending the entire video file to be transcribed, Ascribe.ai creates an audio-only file that it quickly uploads in the background, obtaining and displaying the transcript as well as pushing all relevant markers to the timeline in Adobe Premiere Pro. The whole process happens faster than real time; each minute of footage can be transcribed and results returned to Premiere in as little as 10 seconds. Transcribed text appears as markers in the Premiere Pro timeline, as well as in sidecar XMP files, which Ascribe.ai creates, which contain the transcripts. Users also have the option of exporting an industry-standard SRT or VTT file with the transcript as well.
Ascribe.ai uses the same axle Speech services used by the company’s Axle ai 2019 media management system for small and midsize video teams. However, unlike Axle ai 2019, no centralized database or shared network storage is required. Ascribe.ai runs directly on any Mac or Windows system running Adobe Premiere Pro and connects with Axle ai’s Speech cloud service via nearly any connection to perform the transcription.
Sam Bogoch, CEO of Axle AI, said “Since our company was founded in 2012, we’ve made it our mission to bring the power of video search to an ever-wider group of creative teams. Now, with Ascribe.ai, we’re taking it to a whole new level: the broader universe of freelancers and videographers who may work on their own, or on distributed teams. While these folks may not need our higher-end solutions yet, we thought it would be a great opportunity to make the power of AI-driven transcription available to everyone.
