We have developed an online application for automatic transcription of speech, and we keep improving it. Our Beey editor is a powerful tool for journalists, video producers, lecturers, scribes, and a wider scale of users from Youtubers to multinational media agencies. The process of transcription, editing, subtitling, translating, exporting which would normally take hours to complete, are now ready within minutes.
The first concept for Beey originated with Ewa Balejová in the spring of 2018, considering a modern replacement and addition to our existing software tools. She convinced every one of the merits of an online application for editing automatic transcripts as opposed to the already existing installed program.
Our colleague Martin Španěl reacted to this impulse with a working prototype. We were impressed by his solution, which made it possible to edit an ongoing transcription.
July 1st 2018
The first development version was to be completed on July 1st 2018 as a birthday gift for our CEO and owner of NEWTON Technologies, Petr Herian. In the end, we did not manage to meet this deadline, as well as a number of subsequent deadlines 🙂
Our frontend code, which determines the appearance of the user interface, is being continuously maintained (and refactored!) by Martin Podloucký.
