Community-based media captioning and translation

Filed under: Education,Software,Web Programming — wholeshebang @ 4:38 am

This is the next big benefit to society of the Internet Age – Ideas to tackle online media captioning (and translation). There are efforts about to collaborate on an application and method to allow not only the closed-captioning/text-captioning of audio and video by the community but to do so in multiple languages. The effort is mainly aimed at education, as current captioning activities are disjointed and poor countries try to access a wealth of higher-education knowledge.

I can see this being a very useful thing for other purposes as well.
