[Athen] Transcripts of podcasts or webinars for deaf student

Hi Lorraine,

I would look into a service like Rev or 3Play for getting something transcribed in a pinch. Rev is a transcription service that costs about $1 a minute for a polished transcript with a 12-hour delivery window, and about 10 cents for a machine-generated transcript that can be provided in less than half an hour (that would probably need cleanup, but could be faster than waiting for around 12 hours).

I think with Rev you can also do it on an as-needed basis, i.e. don’t need to subscribe to a service. https://www.rev.com/

Hope that helps,

Subject: [Athen] Transcripts of podcasts or webinars for deaf student

Dear All,

We have a deaf student who needs to get the transcript from a webinar or podcast very quickly. We want to get it as quickly as possible and wanted to know what others do to get this done as soon as possible. The source is from webinars and podcasts media that come from third party websites and not from the university I work at.

Any other ideas that we may not have through of

Thanks for your help
