Introduction to Contextual Audio Editor

Contextual Audio Editor, in short CAE, is a web application for Text-based audio editing. CAE can connect to various SpeechToText service providers and make full use of these services.

It can run within the DAVID ecosystem or as a stand-alone application. With a Platform independency it gives the user a flexibility to work from everywhere.
