SubbIt! and audiovisual cultural heritage
TV archives offer insights into important historical topics that have shaped our past and continue to shape our present. They can bring history to life with first-hand accounts and add value to education by fostering critical thinking and stimulating creativity.
In order to make these archives accessible to more people we have produced English subtitles for them through an automatic process. We now need your support in checking those subtitles and revising them as needed.
SubbIt! is an initiative of the Europeana Subtitled Generic Services project, which focuses on the theme of ‘Broadcasting Europe’. The project highlights the social, political, and economical changes that shaped European history, as documented on television from the 1930s onwards. It adapts AI technology to cultural heritage audiovisual material to produce high-quality closed captions and English subtitles for selected video content.
