I’ve started using the Otter app for meeting transcriptions, so I talked this blog early this morning, and I’m editing it late at night. Otter has some advantages over the app that just transcribes with no features at all. This one save pretty much automatically. if I just stopped talking it’ll probably save. It has a cost but the free version has a number of minutes I haven’t come close to using. We’ll see whether that happens, but it may still be worth paying for even if it requires me to pay.

It appeared to me that one of the things that I was looking for in a transcription. Closed Captioning piece of software was for it to be searchable and synced to the video, and it occurred to me just this instant, that this may be a better solution doesn’t have to be synced to the video, because if you’ve got the words. You don’t need to see me saying them. Words are what’s important. And if you have them tagged along with the video, then people who like to read could read and people who like to watch can watch, but if you need to search you search the words, and I’ve been looking for one, put them together in the video. And I realized, well that won’t be searchable. I can’t search the words in the video. I mean, Google and YouTube probably can, they’re working on it if they can’t. But for me, the words make more sense and talking into a transcription program. Although it makes errors, is probably better for me than always recording videos. Text all becomes searchable by Google as well.

So I made that decision. Good.

So I can go back to sleep now right question mark. HA!  OOPS. I have to get out of the habit of actually adding my punctuation, oh maybe I don’t maybe this tool picks it up I don’t know this tool was designed for transcribing people who just talk, not, not people who dictate him. That’s interesting. I wonder if a dictation program would be better. Actually I kind of wonder now if maybe the Google tool isn’t the best. Just using the Google Voice transcription system into a Word Press blog or Google Docs.  Although Google still hassn’t really done anything on Windows for voice. Just Android.

So that solution hasn’t been solved. I like to keep every possible thing open. I never closed my tasks. Is that a problem is that an issue or is that a solution to I do that?  Have I actually never finished, anything? Because if it’s not finished I don’t have to start.

I haven’t decided, so I don’t have to start it.

Just another brain thing my brain plays with me.

Neat though.

10:45 PM.  Not a lot of editing, and it allows me to correct. Since most of my blogs are not edited or corrected, this may be a good thing.  I like it.
