Echo360 Adds AI-Powered Captioning Service to Video Learning Platform

Echo360 has partnered with Rev to bring the AI-powered captioning service to users of the EchoVideo learning platform. Rev's speech-to-text tools utilize artificial intelligence in conjunction with a network of 72,000-plus freelancers to provide speedy and accurate captions, subtitles, and transcripts for any audio/video content.

EchoVideo provides browser-based video capture, 360-video, video editing, live streaming and other video management tools. The integration with Rev will make it faster and easier for instructors to create accessible learning environments, Echo360 noted in a news announcement.

"Everything we design and do at Echo360 is grounded in our three core principles of equity, engagement, and evidence, and Rev's commitment to making transcription services and accessibility easier and more efficient for all is another tangible example of equity in action," said Kathryn Stewart, chief product officer at Echo360. "Their commitment to delivering innovative, inclusive products is a perfect fit with the EchoVideo platform and our Echo360 DNA, as we believe the future of captioning integrates a mix of human and automated intelligence."

"By working with Echo360 to make facets of education more universally accessible, we're removing barriers to learning and sharing knowledge," said Jason Chicola, CEO of Rev. "At Rev, we believe every voice should be heard, and by helping instructors share information with a broader audience, and ensuring every student can engage with the material, we're making the experience of learning more inclusive."
