Closed captioning and video transcription

Closed captioning and video transcription


Job Description

This is more than just a transcription job.

Our registered training organisation is looking for professionals who are familiar with creating closed caption files - SRT or TML formats with the possibility of outputting to .SAMI down the track.

We are looking for W3C compliant files that describe the audio and the speakers, not just provide a synched transcription. If you do not understand the difference, please do not apply.

We have 4 videos (2 are 2.5 mins, 1 is 6 mins, 1 is 15 mins) for which we will require closed caption files and transcriptions.

We have another 16 videos of varying lengths that have been published to YouTube by other people for which we will require transcriptions that describe the audio, but not the SRT or TML files.

We do not have the time to provide audio versions of these files for use in transcription software. We can provide links to the videos themselves.

Some medical and sociological terminology will be involved. The subject matter includes HIV, Viral Hepatitis and sexually transmitted diseases.

Work would need to be completed by Friday, 11 May 2013.

Skills: video, typing, english
