The following presentation was given by Michael to the Web Accessibility Summit at Missouri State University in Springfield, MO.
Abstract: Audio transcription poses a unique combination of challenges that result in a high bar that content creators still struggle to get over. Despite the availability of steadily improving tools, we still fight in day-to-day content management to ensure audio content has text alternatives.
With some strategic planning and attention to process, we can aim to improve the transcription process for your content. We’ll look at different ways to transcribe audio, the benefits and challenges automated tools present, and the broader usability benefits good transcription can offer you.
