Learning2gether 1400 July 14 (Sunday) Claude Almansi and colleagues: Creating subtitles for media with Amara
- Hi everyone,
Learning2gether perseveres through temperatures approaching 50 degrees C
here in Abu Dhabi (indoor temperatures much more benign :-)
This Sunday July 14 at 1400 GMT we have the pleasure of hosting Claude
Almansi and her colleagues in a Hangout, where they'll tell us about using
to create subtitles to media recordings.
Part of the impetus is that they are working on English subtitles at this
for the learning 2gether #ltis13 meeting. The transcription was mainly done
by Lucia Bartolotti. But there are still several passages marked "check" or
Claude suggests that if Learning2gether participants might be willing to
have a go at editing the subtitles, that could be a practical introduction
to the Amara software. If interested, visit
http://www.amara.org/en/videos/YSU7qZTGsp94/en/506070/ -> Edit and resolve
the issues noted. There is copious more information at the shared PiratePad
document giving more specific instructions on editing, as well as other
details about Amara and other tools for captioning media.
All are welcome to join us at this session and learn more about this and
other captioning tools as well.
