Video transcriptions now at Adafruit

Pt 2260
We are slowly but surely transcribing many of the videos on Adafruit.com – we think this is good not only for the hearing impaired but it also makes things easier to find when web searching. Most of all it’s 2009, almost 2010 – every video should really have a transcript. For our transcription services we used a service that pt had used at MAKE, they’re called 3Play Media based out of Somerville, MA. We worked with Josh Miller there, we do not make any affiliate money, etc. We hope you enjoy the transcripts, our kits, our videos and plan to do lots more.

The process works like this:

Pt 2258
Pt 2259

  • Upload a video, we uploaded a small low res file
  • Select the type of transcription and file outputs, you can get time sync’ed as well, handy for closed captioning. They also supply keywords from the video, handy for tagging
  • Wait a few days, we did not need expedited services
  • Pay via paypal, it was $24.33

And that’s it.

Here are our first two transcriptions, we only edited 2 words so far (MAKE magazine and EYEBEAM) – not bad! There are some corrections we’ll make later but we’re really happy with this and the price is right.
