Alignment Settings

The transcript alignment service is a 100% automated service where the quality of the output depends heavily on the user submitting the source text to adhere to the alignment service's best practices. When the best practices are not adhered to the output can result in sync issues between text and speech and/or encoding errors in the text. The Alignment Settings can be configured so when issues with source text are identified they are not finalized but instead sent to the Review Alignment File activity state, giving the user the ability to quality control their alignment requests.

Once a file is in the Review Alignment File state the source text can either be fixed and re-submitted for alignment, canceled, finalized as is, or discarded then submitting only the media file for the default transcription captioning service.
