Erik De Snerck is head of Production Facilities and Coordinator of Access Services at VRT. The Production Facilities Department is responsible for postproduction, translation, subtitling and access services. Erik started at VRT in 1995 as a member of the editorial staff of Teletext and combined this with freelance work for the Subtitling Department. Since 1997 he has been a full-time member of the Subtitling Department and has focused on technical aspects. Searching for better solutions for live subtitling, he introduced speech recognition for live subtitling in 2001. In 2009 he became head of ProVO, a new department at VRT that covers a wide range of tasks, all related to translating, subtitling and programme editing. Since 2011 he has also been in charge of all access services, including signing, audio description and spoken subtitling for linear broadcast and web content.
