Published on

ClipFlair - Foreign Language Learning through Interactive Captioning and Revoicing of Clips
http://ClipFlair.net

ClipFlair is a European-funded project for foreign language learning through interactive revoicing and captioning of clips.

Revoicing refers to any interaction between speech and image, such as dubbing, audio description, karaoke singing and reciting.

Captioning refers to any interaction between writing and image, such as conventional subtitling, same language subtitling, transcription, video annotations and comments.
