Secrets of Audio Transcription in Improving UX Universally

A session at IA Summit 2013

Saturday 6th April, 2013

9:00am to 9:45am (EST)

Want to attract a more diversified audience for your podcasts, videos, live events? Attend Sveta’s presentation – she will share secrets of making good quality transcription to improve UX and SEO that will also benefit event organizers and multimedia owners.

Is captioning only for people with hearing difficulties? Not necessarily. It is also a hidden gem for many others such as foreign language speakers, remedial readers, and those in noisy/quiet situations. Sveta will discuss case studies of captioning that go beyond universal access, such as Jared Spool’s UIE website, with podcast transcripts that can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of hearing abilities.

The presentation is not typical – it will be signed by the deaf speaker, voiced by interpreters, and captioned in real time. Check it out to see how information can be accessed in ways other than just via audio!
