I prefer real time. I can hear, but miss a lot of words or phrases. Unless the captions are as close to the spoken word as possible they do me no good. The ASR has improved greatly during this past year, so accuracy hasn’t been a problem. Delay is always a problem.

Thanks for asking.

I received this question from a group setting up a virtual platform to offer courses:

 I would love to ask your opinion about our online platform development. 
We are about to implement captioning and the developers have given us two options:
‘Real-time’ captions, which show each word as it’s spoken, or
‘Final version’ captions, which compose a phrase or sentence after the person pauses. It’s more accurate apparently. 
What would you recommend? 

Thank you,
