This is where the brand-new video engagement platform, Video L10N (pronounced “lion”), strives to make a difference. And in this article, we will give you a brief background of the platform in question, as well as, walk you through its process and capabilities.
So, without any further ado, let’s get right into it!
Video L10N is Powered by HapYak
Before you learn about Video L10N, it’s important to find out who launched it. So, this video engagement service was launched and is powered by HapYak.
For those of you unaware, HapYak happens to be the most reliable interactive video software for enterprises. Not only can you add interactions to all your clips without breaking a sweat but you can also check out how well your videos are performing since HapYak gives its users access to analytics. Moreover, it works with almost every credible video player and device.
In simpler words, the best way to answer, “why should I use HapYak?” is by highlighting some of its key features:
- Allows quick and easy addition of interactivity to videos without the need for coding or any kind of technical assistance.
- Owing to it being HTML5-based, HapYak offers users an unrivaled interactive experience across all devices.
- Well-suited for businesses of all types due to its highly customizable nature, making it easier to adjust the style of interactions in accordance with the brand requirements.
Video L10N: What You Need to Know
So, now that you’ve been introduced to HapYak, it’s time to shed light on a platform it has recently launched… Video L10N.
The launch will be announced on May 1, 2021. In the announcement, the newly-introduced platform was recognized as the only video engagement service with comprehensive video accessibility and translation capabilities for the education sector.
But one may ask, “how does Video L10N improve accessibility?”
The answer to the above-mentioned question is that the video engagement platform takes three pillars of accessibility into account to make sure that educators can craft video-oriented lessons that are not only engaging but also interactive and easy to understand.
As for the three pillars of accessibility, those are:
- Automatic captioning
- Localization (translation)
- Identifying on-screen text so that it can be read by screen readers
Video L10N: Unlike Any Other Video Engagement Platform
We mentioned above how Video L10N makes accessibility faster, easier, and more cost-effective than its rivals. However, what wasn’t mentioned above was that this platform relies on patent-pending Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the same purpose as well.
Patent-pending refers to the on-screen text identification. And L10N happens to be the first company (and the only one yet) to provide its users with this capability.
So, yes, the full process doesn’t take hours to complete. In fact, the entire process takes about as long as the length of your video. Additionally, the process itself (discussed later in this article) isn’t complicated by any means. All you are required to do is make a few clicks, rather than an arduous, expensive, and manual process.
How can Video L10N Revolutionize the Education Market?
As stated earlier, in this day and age, video is perhaps the best and most engaging learning method. However, it’s not being utilized to its full strength despite the institutions being forced to focus on remote learning.
Two of the major challenges that have prevented videos from becoming a mainstay in the education market are accessibility and equity but not anymore because:
Video L10N equips educators with tools to innovate their video-learning practices. Moreover, with the video engagement platform boasting several built-in interactive features, educators will be able to save time. Additionally, L10N is capable of supporting accessibility devices dedicated to helping people with disabilities, including hearing, vision, and motor impairment
And not to forget that using this platform, educators can offer inclusive communications to families and guardians who don’t have a firm grasp on their native language. This way, educators will be able to fulfill the Department of Education’s OCR requirements for Limited English Proficient (LEP) parents and guardians.
How to Translate Using Video L10N?
With Video L10N, educators will feel empowered to translate content for students in a time-efficient and cost-effective way. The process is quite easy, as explained in the following five steps:
- Users upload the video.
- Video L10N automatically identifies captions and on-screen text.
- Video L10N automatically translates content
- Users check the translation
- Users deliver engaging learning!
Before You Go…
From automatically generating captions and detecting on-screen content to translating different types of texts (captions, interactive elements, transcriptions, etc.) into over 120 languages in a matter of minutes, there’s no doubt that Video L10N is adamant about making video accessible to all.
