Our programmer Barbora Skálová discovered a great answer to this question. If you need some inspiration, in the link below you can read all about her journey and how she came to be on our team. Sometimes, you just need to find the courage to make a change and then keep on the path that makes sense to you. What makes sense for us is supporting people with hearing impairments. We have also successfully promoted subtitles at the INSPO conference for people with special needs. And we will continue to do so because we know that there are people among us for whom this is very important. Anyone can create subtitles. Instructions on how to do this for any video can be found on our website (www.beey.io). We would like to thank you on behalf of the Deaf community.
Wishing you a wonderful, colourful autumn.

A good-quality microphone can be the key to an excellent transcription. Which one should you choose?
An important factor in the accuracy of your automatic transcription is a good-quality audio recording, to which the use of a suitable microphone can contribute significantly. With smartphone connectivity and easy availability on the Czech market as our main conditions, we selected several devices in different price categories and tested them in both quiet and noisy environments. We had the resulting recordings transcribed in Beey and then evaluated the accuracy by comparing the transcription with the reference text. You can read the results of the price vs. performance test here.
An increasing number of courts of justice are using Beey for automatic transcriptions
Automatic and therefore fast and unquestionable transcription is very beneficial and important in the field of the judiciary. As per the needs of the Czech courts, the Beey application was installed directly at the Ministry of Justice of the Czech Republic, specially adapted and connected to the recording systems from the courtrooms. Stenographers then simply check the automatic transcription and correct any errors. The positive feedback is a testament to the quality of this fine-tuned service and has inspired us to offer our know-how to other countries.
Newton Group founder Petr Herian has received a prestigious award
During the INSPO conference, which has long been dedicated to modern technologies for people with specific needs, our company’s founder received an award. Our modern subtitling system significantly helps break down communication barriers for people with hearing impairments, because automation makes subtitling fast, inexpensive and accessible to anyone. “This activity makes a lot of sense to me, and I am pleased that our product Beey is helping people. I also see the award as a kind of commitment to the future,” says Petr Herian.
