Speaker Information Editing in Subtitles

Created by Jay Park, Modified on Thu, 28 Dec 2023 at 07:22 PM by Jay Park

MediaCAT's editor has been updated with an advanced feature for managing speaker details within subtitle segments. Users can now navigate to the 'Update Speakers' modal to effectively manage speaker profiles by adding new speakers, updating character names, and adjusting age and gender details. Additionally, to enhance the editing process, users can make use of shortcut keys to assign speakers or modify speaker names within a subtitle block without the need to navigate to a separate window. 

These refined speaker details can be allocated to each subtitle line, providing precise speaker attribution. This addition is pivotal as it prepares users for the integration of accurate speaker details in the forthcoming version of the AI Dubbing feature within MediaCAT.

Managing Speaker Information

Select the “Update Speakers” option from the Subtitle menu to access the dedicated modal.

Within this modal, you're equipped to adjust the name, gender, and age of existing speakers. To introduce a new speaker into the roster, click the “New Speaker” button. Keep in mind, speakers can only be removed if they haven’t been allocated to any segment. The “# of Segments” column displays the count of subtitle segments that a speaker is associated with.

Navigating Segments by Speaker

Each speaker entry is flanked by “<” and “>” buttons. Clicking on “<” shifts your active view to the prior subtitle segment where that particular speaker is featured. Conversely, “>” redirects you to the subsequent segment with the same speaker's mention.

Should there be any subtitle segments lacking assigned speakers, the navigation buttons located in the “Unassigned” entry will help you pinpoint such instances.


Assigning Speakers to Subtitle Lines

Any speaker(s) linked to a specific segment will be showcased at its bottom-left corner. To assign a new speaker or change the current one to a different speaker, just type the speaker's name at the beginning of the line, followed by a colon, and then press the default shortcut 'Control + ;'. Note that 'L1' and 'L2' preceding the speaker names indicate 'line 1' and 'line 2,' helping users identify which speaker is associated with each line.
