Adobe says a new partnership with Crooked Media will make podcasts more accessible by using Adobe Premiere Pro’s Speech to Text technology to caption content.
Adobe’s Speech to Text feature set in Premiere Pro is being used across Crooked Media’s video platforms to caption content including interviews and clips from Pod Save America, Lovett or Leave It, Offline, Pod Save the World, Keep It and X-Ray Vision.
“When Crooked Media debuted in 2016, we were purely a podcast company, but we quickly learned that video was going to play an important role in helping us reach new audiences and make our content accessible to more people,” said Matt DeGroot, senior director of video production at Crooked Media. “However, the tools in the market didn’t offer the speed and accuracy that we needed for our quick production turnaround times. Speech to Text in Premiere Pro allows us to put high-quality captions on all our video content, opening the door for more people to participate in the podcast experience.”
“Making amazing podcasts is Crooked Media’s bread and butter, and we’re big admirers of their work,” said Meagan Keane, principal product marketing manager at Adobe. “It’s so exciting for us to see Speech to Text in Premiere Pro being used by a company that produces some of the most informational and entertaining podcast content available today, and we are proud to know that it’s helping to make their shows more accessible so that more people can partake in the experience.”
