OK, poetry’s outta my system for a bit. Back to software. (May they inspire each other)…
When I last threw out some ideas about online media captioning there was a lot of interest. Must be onto something.
I owe the dotSUB folks a piece of video to get the ball rolling. I’m also happy that folks from two different schools (PSU, NC State) commented that they’d like to get in on this collaboratively and find some funding.
Meanwhile, I re-discovered the BBC’s Annotatable Audio project. Similar concept in terms of Wiki-style annotations to help others find segments. I wonder if this project ever got put into production. Either way, more food for thought.
The captioning idea could be succesful because it has a distinct annotation goal (transcript, captioning, translation) and interface pre-segments. Let’s keep this one going.
