Transcription Tools

  • Http:// allows transcription from video files, along with 'simultaneous' translation trascription. Note that this form of trascript, like wikipedia, is only as good as whoever is self-selecting to carry out the transcription &/or translation task, and does not appear to have quality oversight. On the other hand, one could theoretically send students to transcribe a single segment, and then compare thier work for homework. [With thanks to Chris Cieri and Dave Graff.]
