Use corrections to source language subtitles to create an Amazon Transcribe custom vocabulary

You can use the corrections you make while editing subtitles to generate an Amazon Transcribe custom vocabulary that you can use in future workflows to improve the quality of Amazon Transcribe results for you content.

  1. After making edits in the Subtitles tab for your content, choose Save Custom Vocabulary at the bottom of the page.

  2. (Optional) To add to an existing vocabulary, use the radio button to select it before editing. This populates the vocabulary table in the form with the content of the existing vocabulary plus any edits you made to the subtitles.

  3. The form presents you with a table that is pre-populated with corrections that you made to the subtitles for the asset. You can further modify the rows in the table by selecting a cell and entering new values. You can also add and delete rows using the (+) and (-) buttons at the end of each row. The table contains the following values for each row:

    • Original phrase - the phrase that was in the automatically generated subtitles. This is provided for reference and can’t be edited in the form.

    • New phrase - the phrase that replaced the original phrase through the editor.

    • Sounds Like (optional) - The pronunciation of your word or phrase using the standard orthography of the language to mimic the way that the word sounds. For details, refer to Custom vocabularies in the Amazon Transcribe Developer Guide.

    • IPA (optional) - The pronunciation of your word or phrase using IPA characters. For details, refer to Custom vocabularies in the Amazon Transcribe Developer Guide.

    • Display As - Defines how you want the word or phrase looks when it's output. For details, refer to Custom vocabularies in the Amazon Transcribe Developer Guide.
