Re: [Osdc-list] Fwd: Open and Closed -- Closed-captions for opensource.com videos?

Rebecca, you are correct, we do not script our talking head videos, they are a q and a format with the interviewee giving spontaneous answers.

Wes is researching and thinking through our work flow about how subtitling can be added in, so stay tuned for that update soon.

Definitely depends on the video. I have rarely seen a script for a
"talking head" interview video, but of course anything animated or
image-based would have one. (Mike, correct me if I'm wrong, since I
haven't been involved with video production for a few years.)

I'll see what I can do to tackle that one.
One suggestion: I don't know what production values go into the producing of
the videos.  However, being somewhat cynically realistic, this material
looks to have more quality control than someone wanking off a video in their
mom's basement.  In addition to being "all about the love of open source"
the material that goes up on the site is also on some level a P.R. vehicle
for a company that will remain nameless. ;-)
As such, I'm guessing there's a wee bit of a script / plan.  *IF* said info
has some of the "sound bytes" that are going to be read aloud verbatim -- or
even nearly verbatim, it would save re-typing if those quotes were in an
open source format that could be cut and pasted into captioning tools.  No?
