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.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
