StreamText.Net Change Log

Starting in May 2023, we'll be documenting changes that are made to the platform. This document will be a list of all of those changes and the dates those changes are deployed to our production environment

Jun 15th, 2024

  • Fixed an issue when aggregating text for Zoom, YouTube, and Realtime Caption Ingestion that occurred when the length of a word is longer than the desired line length to be output. 

Jun 8th, 2024

  • Update to the live transcript player to create a better viewing experience for some models of braille readers.

May 19th, 2024

  • Added line feed to the set of characters that will trigger translation. Previously we only used terminal punctuation (period, exclamation point, question mark, etc) to trigger translation. With this change we will also trigger translation when a new line is created even if the previous line does not contain terminal punctuation.

February 24th, 2024

  • Fix for Webex Embedded Application for scenario where users have auto adjusting themes at the operating system level and the Webex Client is set to follow the operating system theme. Incorrectly resulted in cases where white text was on a white background.

January 21st, 2024

  • Backend logging changes in preparation for moving entire logging infrastructure to Google Cloud Logging.
  • Added logging to SOAP services to track accounts still using the SOAP services to collect data in preparation for migrating users from SOAP to JSON services.

December 9th, 2023

  • Added additional condition for restarting the ASR stream when an specific error condition occurs.
  • Additional demos streams created.
  • Change the time reported when displaying and exporting events included on an invoice. The previous value was UTC. This value created confusion so we changed it to the local time of the user that is viewing or exporting the list of events.
  • Added a condition to shut down an ASR event if no transcript has been generated in the first 15 minutes of the event.

December 2nd, 2023

  • Updates to Zoom publishing to better deal with the new roll-up caption behavior in Zoom. Specifically changed the duration when we flush incomplete lines from 10 seconds to 4.

November 18th, 2023

  • Updates to Zoom settings to better support changes to the way Zoom displays captions. Since they are no doing a roll-up view, we are now only sending one line at a time instead of allowing the users to configure the number of lines that are sent.
  • SSL Certificate updates to latest version on load balancers and other servers.

October 8th, 2023

  • Release of Webex embedded application for StreamText.Net. The application allows for native embedding of StreamText caption delivery experience in Webex meetings.

August 28th, 2023

  • Invalidate user session on logout. Previously the token generated during login only managed by the browser. When a user logged out, we instructed the user to destroy the validation token. This update adds server side invalidation of the token during log out.
  • Server header removal from HTTP responses. 
  • Removal of crossdomain.xml resource
  • Rate limit authentication requests. As part of SOC 2 compliance requirements, we have implemented rate limiting on failed login attempts. IP addresses that fail logging in 10 times consecutively are not allowed to log in again for 15 minutes.
  • Default parsing format of user is now viewable in when viewing staff members information.
  • Prevent IFRAME access to admin site. As part of SOC 2 compliance requirements, we have disabled the ability to IFRAME the admin site. Nobody was actually doing this, so there is no effect, we've just explicitly disabled it now.
  • Do not inform user if the provided email address was not found when attempting to recover password. Previously, we would inform the user if the email address they provided was not found in our system when trying to recover a password. We did this to try and help users that may have multiple email addresses but it also provided context for potentially malicious actors to use it for user enumeration. We no longer provide feedback if the email address was found or not found when recovering a password.

July 28th, 2023

  • Added password complexity requirements when creating users and changing passwords. This was done in order to address SOC 2 compliance requirements.
  • Fix for issue where unique viewers stopped populating. This was because of a change that Google made to it's APIs for fetching analytics data.
  • Updates to include links to invoices on First and Second late notices. Final notices already included the links.

June 11th, 2023

  • Added default parsing format to user profile view
  • Added integrity checking when referencing external JavaScript libraries to ensure highjacking and injection are prevented.

May 12th, 2023

  • Fixed position issue with realtime caption pull endpoint
