We’re looking for someone to take our Technical Author induction online training course, free of charge, in exchange for doing something that will help us develop future versions of the course.

This course was one of the first we developed, and, at that time, we didn’t use formal scripts in the creation process. In the next 18 months, we’re planning to re-record the course videos and revise some (approximately 5-10%) of the content. Having a script for the course will help.

So, in exchange for taking the course for free, we’d like that person to write a transcription for us of what the presenter is saying (which you’ll send to us). The document can be in .txt or Word format. You’ll benefit from having taken this couse, and having taken great notes for yourself as well!

Contact us if you’re interested in doing this.

UPDATE: We’ve found someone. Thanks to everyone who replied.

Hi Ellis, Interesting problem. I recently met a videographer who has a system for translating speech to text. I will look into whether his system can automatically write a transcription from a training course. It’s a long holiday weekend here in Canada so it may take a few days to get a response. Cheers, Pam Drucker

Thanks Pam. We’ve used speech to text software in the past, with mixed results. I’d be interested in what they recommend.
