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:
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.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
