How to read from a script without looking like you're reading from a script (and without using a teleprompter)

"Video doesn't sell homes; people sell homes. But I would argue that video sure can help." — Unknown

On the back of yesterday’s post about translating video content into foreign languages, I thought I’d let you guys know about another video hack I found in Captions.ai - an app that is downloadable from the App Store.

To create video, some people need notes - sometimes, I am one of those people! But when you are looking from your notes to the camera and back again, it can look a little weird to the user.

Eye contact is a new feature that fixes that problem - you can read your notes off to the side, but the AI will correct the focus of your eyes.

Here is a test video taken from my hotel room a couple of weeks ago, where I am gazing at some pretend notes off to the side.

Here is the edited video where Captions has magically corrected my eye gaze.

It’s not perfect, but it will get better!

While you’re there, Captions doesn’t just create captions - it can also filter background noises, balance and upgrade your audio and take out all your umms, ahhs and other stumbles and more, so it's a pretty handy little App.

Happy Hunting 🚀
