During our trip to India in early January 2010, Brandon Muramatsu, Andrew McKinney and Vijay Kumar met with Prof. Mangala Sunder and the Indian National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) team at the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras.

The SpokenMedia project and NPTEL are in discussions to bring the automated lecture transcription process under development at MIT to NPTEL to:

  • Radically reduce transcription and captioning time (from 26 hours to as little as 2 hours).
  • Improve initial transcription accuracy via a research and development program.
  • Improve search and discovery of lecture video via transcripts.
  • Improve accessibility of video lectures for the diverse background of learners in India, and worldwide, via captioned video.

SpokenMedia at the IIHS Curriculum Conference

Brandon Muramatsu and Andrew McKinney presented on SpokenMedia at the Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) Curriculum Conference in Bangalore, India on January 5, 2010.

Along with Peter Wilkins, we developed a demonstration of SpokenMedia technology using automatic lecture transcription to transcribe videos from IIHS. We developed a new JavaScript player that allowed us to view and search transcripts, and that supports transcripts in multiple languages. View the demo.
