The importance of audio summarisation
In today’s digital age, it’s important to summarize information. With the condensing of multimedia sources, people are able to understand a topic with relevant information in a short amount of time.
Automatic summarisation of spoken audio is quite new. It’s only been possible because of new technology that can turn audio into text.

Summaries to reduce costs of audio and podcast translations
Translating a podcast into other languages can be expensive. If you translate 40 minutes of audio, the average of a podcast, it would be between 6000 and 7000 words. The average translation rate is $0.07. If your company needs to translate a podcast into several languages, the cost of translation can be quite high. Then, you will have to hire voice actors. For a typical episode, you’ll need one voice to read out the host’s parts and one for the guests.
In today’s world, companies are doing everything they can to reduce expenses. A 7000 word episode can be summarized in 1000 words, resulting in a significant reduction of translation costs. By cutting costs with audio summarization, your company can reach more potential customers worldwide.
