Our accuracy is measured using Word Error Rate (WER), a common accuracy term used in the ASR field. According to a third-party company, the WER for the service we have chosen is around 20% to 25%. Within the same research, the WER for Watson and Speechmatics is 29% and 23% respectively.

How secure is my video and audio file uploaded to Subly?
Security is something that we take seriously at Subly, for both our users and infrastructure. Subly is built on top of AWS (Amazon Web Services) which means we have a mutual responsibility with AWS when it comes to our security and our clients. All files uploaded to Subly are encrypted and not accessible to the public. We will always endeavor to have the best security practices as we have not only content creators but Internal Communications teams and users who have highly confidential information. We pride ourselves on this.
How are my videos saved? Are they protected against leaks and hacking?
All our content and user content (videos and their details) is saved on Amazon S3. Amazon is one of the most secure (if not THE most secure) services in the world and they maintain very high level security standards. When we develop our product we make sure to keep those high standards. We are constantly optimising and improving where needed and working with Amazon very closely to ensure no data or content is compromised.
You will be the only person to access your videos unless you share your user account details. Our team will have access to user accounts and content for the sole purpose of developing new features or helping you with any issues. Our team are all under our company contract to keep data and content private.
How secure is my personal information?
We use AWS user management service to manage our users and their attributes. It is handled with secure access. However, should a user need our support with editing a video, the user can request our support to help and we can assist them.
