Project Durban Web Subtitles

Add subtitles to any media on the web

Currently in preview, Microsoft Research Project Durban is a browser extension that automatically generates subtitles for any media in almost any language. In the small team of 4, I was the designer and front end developer.

Drawing on research insights from my previous captioning research, I defined principles, interactions, and visuals for the product. Then I got to implement the browser extension UI to make my designs a reality.

Users have responded really well to the research-backed design decisions, like the scrolling and selecting interactions.
