seriously this is not the first time i've wondered how the hell closed captioning works; i mean is there someone typing that shit up or is it VRS? and if it is someone sitting there typing it out, this guy deserves a raise
Saw it on Digg today, funny shit. even without the ejaculating in there, it still doesn't even make sense.
what was it supposed to be?
i think they just have some person sitting there typing what they say. a lot of times they will type then you can see them backspace and delete stuff.
is that real? or is it an edited pic?
HAHA, that's funny.
Closed Captioning is handled by a team of writers. It's like air traffic controllers, only it's at a keyboard. The keyboard is HUGE and requires lots of training (Think opposite of court room reporter steno, but with the same amount of training)
There is also a button that they can hit to kick in an automatic system, so they can take a breather, or grab some lunch or otherwise. When that mode is on, anything goes.
the captioning is accurate...
i was there standing in the street
ps i wants to be a closed captioner. whur do i apply?
closed captioner for pornos would be the shit. you could take the easy route and just type in all the "oh's" you want, or you could type in all sorts of fucked up stuff and it would still work.
I've seen dubbed pornos, where you can TELL it's two people in front of microphones moaning.
Good stuff right there.
Its voice recognition software. Thats why words that sound alike are sometimes put up on the screen, but it is also overseen which is why they'll go back and correct the auto system.
Thanks, Mr Wizard.
I always thought it was magic and there was a unicorn with a golden keyboard in the TV.
Me: Hey did you get that email I sent you
Coworker: Yeah but the picture was blurry
Me: The point was the caption <_<
Coworker: Oh yeah, I don't think that's a very efficent way to put out a fire, you'd have to really get after it.
Me: Well there's this one guy, Peter North, he could prolly put out a small kitchen fire :shrug:
Coworker: I can tell you one thing, I'd never use that pan again
Did you have your rapist glasses on? :disguise2:
rapist glasses, a tan trench coat, and some tube socks.... thats it
