My liver is still recuperating from the last drinking game.

So, when is the Priority One fundraiser for transcribed podcasts?

I figure if you have enough listeners who don't mind donating a few bucks to send your crew to Las Vegas, you have enough listeners to send some money so those of us with hearing difficulties can be informed by your show.

They have pretty good talk-to-text tech these days. You'd think they'd have a program that could easily create a transcript from an audio recording.

Oh? Please let me know, I'd love to give it a try -- Will it identify more than one voice and split them accordingly?

Good work if you can get it i guess...
I assure you, we'll be doing more than just using Twitter. Did you followed our convention coverage in 2012 and 2013? We work for our listeners much harder than limiting our content to just 140 characters.

Oh, and I encourage everyone to have a gander at our backer rewards. We made certain that if we were going to ask for our loyal listeners to financially support our coverage of #STLV on their behalf, that we had some sweet SWAG to grant them bragging rights among their trekkie friends.

A 5 minute Google search brought this up.

I said "you'd think they'd have" not "they do have"...just to clarify. Edit: but now looking at the post above, maybe they do have?

Have you ever considered AWS (Amazon Web Services) Mechanical Turk. From the website:



"Amazon Mechanical Turk is a marketplace for work that requires human intelligence. The Mechanical Turk web service enables companies to programmatically access this marketplace and a diverse, on-demand workforce. Developers can leverage this service to build human intelligence directly into their applications.

While computing technology continues to improve, there are still many things that human beings can do much more effectively than computers, such as identifying objects in a photo or video, performing data de-duplication, transcribing audio recordings or researching data details. Traditionally, tasks like this have been accomplished by hiring a large temporary workforce (which is time consuming, expensive and difficult to scale) or have gone undone.

Mechanical Turk aims to make accessing human intelligence simple, scalable, and cost-effective. Businesses or developers needing tasks done (called Human Intelligence Tasks or “HITs”) can use the robust Mechanical Turk APIs to access thousands of high quality, low cost, global, on-demand workers—and then programmatically integrate the results of that work directly into their business processes and systems. Mechanical Turk enables developers and businesses to achieve their goals more quickly and at a lower cost than was previously possible."


and

"The following are examples of companies taking advantage of the power of the Mechanical Turk workforce to understand and intelligently respond to different types of data:

Podcast editing and transcription"



Now, this will cost some money depending on the length, but if enough people see the benefit and are willing to fund it... Heck if PWE were smart, they would step up and make it happen and reap the benefits and good will!!

Maybe this can help out.. Worth a mention any way.
