Webscribing

Some people like listening to video and podcast recordings of talks, and some prefer transcripts. Unfortunately they’re not always available. One thing I’ve done in the past is upload to Youtube and let them generate a transcript. The quality is questionable though, since they don’t do punctuation or distinguish among speakers. Today I found an open web tool that does.

I tried it out with the latest episode of Gettin’ Air, and got these results. Much better than what Youtube does. We still get some misinterpretations, and it doesn’t quite pick out the transitions between speakers, but hey, it don’t cost nothin’.
