Reply with quote shame there are no transcripts or anything from those podcasts...i hope i'm not the only one who sees the irony in *purely* podcasting about accessibility...

Reply with quote Irony indeed.

Surely someone could get access to the services of a professional typist who will type faster than a presenter could talk in a podcast. At that speed even at professional rates it shoudn't cost more than a couple of pints to transcribe.
Reply with quote This is Dennis from Web Axe. I realize how ironic it is that I'm doing a podcast on accessibility, which in nature of a podcast, is not accessible. I don't make any money from the podcast so I can't afford a transcriber for text-only versions of the podcasts. Besides that, I hope you will find my podcast/blog informative and valid. Thanks.

Reply with quote if you don't have the time to do it, would you allow someone from this forum to do it, hosted on their own site and you could maybe link to each other?
Reply with quote Yes, I would allow that. That would be great! Good suggestion, JackP. Anyone interested in transcripting my podcast and/or hosting the pages? I could always host it and would definitely give much credit where due.

Reply with quote I'll have a go, then, time permitting.
Any one you'd like me to look at first (like a short-ish one!)
Reply with quote The "Quick--But Important--Tips" is good...not real technical and covers more than one topic.

Reply with quote I'm finding the WE'05 podcasts only fractionally as useful as they might be, due to the absence of video. The many frustrating references to (projected) code and page demonstrations mean that I'm now experiencing, in a very small way, the frustration that those with real disabilities experience on a daily level - in that I'm not getting enough of the picture, so to speak.
Even transcripts will have limited use unless there is some way of relating the project content that was referenced throughout many of the talks and around which, so much of the meaning of what is being said revolves.

Anyone know if there are plans for a (split-screen, sub-titled) DVD or online video download release?
Some of the talks sound useful, but I feel like I'm still missing bits of them as the explanation of what is actually on the screen isn't always substantial enough to convey what's actually going on regarding the code or visual design.
Reply with quote as per our the previous conversation I've transcribed some of Dennis's podcasts - the promo and episodes 1 through 4, and placed them all here:

http://www.thepickards.co.uk/Accessibility/webaxe.cfm

please note that it's a rush job at the moment - text probably needs tidying, proofreading, and there are no anchors to separate the different episodes at present. Any comments therefore appreciated for corrections, although if there are errors in what's actually said, you'll need to take that up with Dennis. Like those of you who will resent his use of the word 'tag'. Shock, shock, horror, horror.

Tell you what though, I've learnt something new. I'd never come across the abbr attribute within the th element before. Just goes to show, doesn't it?
Reply with quote Great! Thanks JackP! I placed the link to the transcriptions at the top of my podcast.

Reply with quote Did anyone else receive and Email from this WebAxe folk asking for a link to his site on theirs? There's so many spambots creating profiles on this forum and various individuals have used it for boosting their PageRank in the past that I'm just a bit suspicious of people asking me to link to them, completely out of the blue.

Sorry if this is a bit cynical, I'm just thinking aloud. Smile
Reply with quote SiteSurgeon,
No, I do not use spam! I hate spam! I just emailed a few select people about link exchanges. Sorry, I thought your site was nice and wanted to make some connections. Crying or Very sad

Reply with quote Hi Guys,

I was at a PodCamp Boston & sat in a seminar Jared Spool of UIE did where he mentioned a service called castingwords.com for transcripts.

Its a cool service where you just send them your file or upload your xml feed & they can send you back a file in plain text, html, or rft, whatever you prefer.
Its pretty cheap too, .42 cents a minute or .75 cents a minute, depending upon whether you would allow your podcast to be searchable.

I have been using the service for our podcasts & they are very fast. I like they're service alot.

Hope this helps,
