    Mr. Bennett’s discussion will also provide an overview of the actual benefits from ASR, such as:

    • Creation of sidecar simple-text file transcripts and text-based search/navigation of media assets.

    • Improved customer experiences by quickly and easily finding the content they are seeking.
