What is the Custom Dictionary and How To Use It

On the lower-left corner of the screen, we have the “Custom Dictionary” button. When users click it, they will be directed to this page. The goal of the custom dictionary is to help the software transcribe chosen words more accurately. For example, you are going to subtitle a video that has medical terminology in it. Users can create a custom dictionary with medical terminology in it to help the software transcribe the terms accurately.

On the right side of the screen, we can see how we can create custom dictionaries. The “+” button above creates a custom dictionary, you can create multiple custom dictionaries, then we type the name of the custom dictionary under the tab “Dictionary Name”.

Type as many words you deem significant as you want to help the software transcribe those words more accurately, then assign an importance rank to each of them. The importance number indicates how often a word comes up and how important it is to transcribe that word each time the software detects it.

How you apply the custom dictionaries you created is when you are uploading the files. There is a “Use custom dictionary” button on the upload window and when you press it, you can choose from the dictionaries you have created, which will then be implemented in the transcription process. For any other questions, feel free to contact us through the “?” button on the lower right corner of the screen, which is our help button.
