If you suspend your transcription on amara.org, please add a timestamp below to indicate how far you progressed! This will help others to resume your work!
Please do not press “publish” on amara.org to save your progress, use “save draft” instead. Only press “publish” when you're done with quality control.
We present the ongoing work of an student project in informatics at Universität Hamburg in which we combine the strengths of human transcription performance and automatic alignment of these transcriptions to produce high quality video subtitles.
We believe that our work can help the C3 community in generating video subtitles with less manual effort, and we hope to provide subtitles for all 31C3 talks (as long as you provide the transcriptions).
However, we're not just a service provider to the C3. There is a shortage of training material for free and open-source speech recognizers and the acoustic models they employ. Thus, we plan to prepare an aligned audio corpus of C3 talks which will help to advance open-source speech recognition.
Be a part of this by helping us with your transcriptions -- we'll repay with subtitlings and better open-source speech recognition in the future!
