Transcripts of RPPR - what do you think?
« on: February 22, 2012, 02:54:45 PM »
Hi, I'm the guy that provided the transcript for the latest RPPR regular episode (which you can find here: http://subscriptorium.com/726/2samples/1rppr ) as a sample for possible participation in Subscriptorium's Transcript Partner Program, our very new effort to make transcripts available to podcasts at low prices or for free, with a profit-sharing scheme for ad revenue, in order to foment the transcription business, increase search engine visibility for multimedia content, and increase web accesibility (you can read more about it here: http://subscriptorium.com/partnership/subscriptorium-transcript-partner-program ).

I wanted to post here both to make you guys aware of this, and to ask your opinions. Do you like the idea of transcripts being available for this podcast, and why or why not? Maybe you know someone who has hearing problems or who just prefers to read content rather than listen to it, or maybe you can use it as an easily searchable reference when you're saying to yourself, what was that one thing I heard in that one episode?

And if you like these transcripts, would you like to see transcripts of the regular episodes, the APs, or both? When RPPR starts coming out with more video content, would you like to see closed captions made available?

Hope you guys find it helpful.

I would say that the idea of transcripts for the normal podcasts is a great one. I would love to have physical copies to read through, for browsing and searching purposes. I don't personally find interest in transcripts of AP's, if for no reason other than they can tend to get a bit hectic.
