  2. 2. MATS  –  Mobile  Audio  Transcrip@on   and  Submission  •  Mobile  phone  app  to  record  audio  (or  video)   oral  histories,  automa@cally  obtain   transcrip@ons,  and  submit  the  histories  and   transcrip@ons  to  a  repository

  7. 7. Submission  of  media  and  transcripts  
  8. 8. Feasability  =  Easability  •  All  of  the  pieces  already  exist,  we  just  need  to   glue  them  together  •  Stealing  code  from  another  group’s  SWORD   submission  app  from  OR2011  challenge!   (SWORD  Share)  •  Web  services  for  MicrosoN  MAVIS  (via   GreenBuZon)    •  Amazon  Mechanical  Turk  
  9. 9. Use  Study  –  Digital  Archive  of  Literacy   Narra@ves    DALN  seeks  literacy  narra@ves  –  personal  recorded  stories  of  how  one  learned  to  read,  write  and  compose,  from  everyday  ci@zens.      Instruc@ons  for  uploading  mp3’s  today    are    mul@-­‐stepped.    Submission  from  a  smart  phone  –  with  transcripts  –  would  be  a  boon.

  11. 11. Use  Study  –  tablets  in  the  field  •  Researchers  are  using  mobile  devices  in  the  field.     The  ability  to  upload  an  audio  or  video  file  at  the   point  of  crea@on-­‐with  transcript-­‐  would  greatly   enhance  the  rate  of  contribu@on.
