OR2012 Developer’s Challenge MATS – Mobile Audio* Transcrip@on and Submission *and video
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
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
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.
Use Study – Elliston Poetry Curator • The Elliston poetry curator at University of Cincinna@ has been hos@ng noted poets and making analog recordings for decades – s@ll doing so – would be great for him to have a digital method that would not be mul@-‐ stepped and would not require mul@ple devices, using an android tablet or iPad, and he would be ecsta@c to have transcrip@ons.
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.
