Happy Scribe @_getscribe

We provide you with an user friendly interface to transcribe your interviews from speech to text. Proudly made in Ireland by two students.

The prices are very reasonable, £0.09 per minute. 50p minimum charge. So I though it was worth a punt, I uploaded my most recent microcast:

And in a couple of minutes I got this back:

This is a make you cast by Duron Johnson. Podcasting history. According to Wikipedia podcasting fruits and audio blogging from way back when. The word seemed to be coined in 2004 at Thamer just published some audio recordings of rating classer. 10 year olds who produced Rosko website. Once I figured out podcasting wasn’t a fad with me the real podcast which ran for several years starting podcasting as a meeting developed was really useful. I think Falk’s still despite the best efforts find the concept of RSS difficult. When I started publishing podcasts. I ended up reading the RSS because some of it and rating our podcast RSS by hand. The web page that showed the pod cast was just a p p pedes that Parche the RSS. This way the episodes get back said forewards way of make a broadcast. Given a new Wortle in the West or PSP. It was quite surprising this worked. But it didn’t suit enshrouding they had a reasonable understanding who catching and RSS worked. One of the interesting things was at that point the school bought and I pored. Over we edited and recorded some of each episode we did on a Mac of the audio came from the iPod’s recording feature although the odd audio quality was a remember. 64 bit more. The interface was was really great. The click wheel thing. Really easygoing pupils to use compared to any other digital recorder issue apart on the market. And that kind of iceballs speaks to the way I am doing this no into my phone. Even though we had a podcast and Macs we used on audacity then to put the Pokus again and I’m still using that day for podcasting. But mostly these make CAS amusin workflow or at least no use in fitting a recording studio. To do a wee bit and the more editing. If any to. Most Borgman and the pod casting back in was with pupils but it did make a few pod cast myself when I thought I had something to see and later on about 2007. David Nobile and they started s l f talk. This was up open in the. Who was attending the Scottish festival podcast and folks submitted audio via email to Posterous or by tagging it in a Audioboo when it was imported Posterous and a couple other makers we had.

That. For me this was vs incoming. It was just really groovy. It became a no US show it turned into the age of talk which later became radio wages talk. This is a regular cast with different guests each week. Why broadcast the main podcast. The more microcaps recently have kind of been struggling a bit and organized in guess some dipping in the Skase rules. The habits are much better at keeping this going all the time but I do enjoy talking into a microphone so I’ve started this make it cast again it’s kind of ebb forward. This would be Episode 13 but I’ve decided to stop with the numbering. After listening to Chris Aldrich. And his Maker cast Gwennie suggests that. It’s very practical. To regimented.

But mainly that’s a tool for listening. So ever saw of beautifulness make a cast with a series of three point episodes. This is the third. That point can have lost a lot of momentum. As I’ve had a bit of a virus chest infection a few weeks so a wee bit stuffy but I’m really hoping to be more regular Castano most of my pade Carson has been around education and a tech I’ve occasionally wandered off into the long grass field recording towards couping or ear birds crooking are buskers.

Battling whatever sucky or street they mostly have stuck to the early and Norbert and workin. I think they’re going to probably a little more personal. We’ve a plan behind. Waiting a finished here and atry. I hope to take one or two lessons with me and hope you enjoyed this show.

It was presented in a nice editor so you can listen and edit easily before you download. The editor highlights the words as the audio plays, you can adjust the speed. It looks ease to use but I’ve not tried that yet. At first glance the site looks nicely designed and easy to use, I’ve managed this and the blog post is 10 minutes or so before school.

When I get a moment I am going to see how long the editing process takes. But the bell is going to ringing for the last day of term in two or three minutes.


Reading and loving: Micro.blog and Micro-Communities⤴

from @ wwwd – John's World Wide Wall Display

But there is something about an informal collection of independent blogs by people with a shared passion that makes for a much better micro-community experience than social networks or other online group platforms. I’ve experienced this first-hand with a couple of blogging communities I’ve participated in: an informal network of blogs by adoptive parents and the pen and paper enthusiast blog community.

Micro.blog and Micro-Communities

I’ve had a huge amount of learning and pleasure out of both tightly bound and loose knit online communities. Doug’s post shows how of a network of Blogs owned by individuals can be better than a silo and points out the need for hashtags or other connective tissue.

Micro blogs with webmentions one part of improving the online conversation. A method or methods for discovery and group participation would be another.

I can’t recommend micro.blog enough. It has really helped me think about my online activity in many new ways. You can get involved for free and lose nothing by joining and playing.

Listening to John Johnston’s Microcast 12: Podcatching Thoughts by Aaron DavisAaron Davis (collect.readwriterespond.com)
I am really interesting listening to your Microcasts John. Chris Aldrich is right, I need to look into Huffduffer.

Hi Aaron,
Thanks, microcasting, at least in the quick and dirty fashion I am using certainly cuts down on the time needed. I am listen to more and more microcasts and less longer form one.

I wonder if you would be interested in trying a slowcast in the style Alan is trying, It’s Out! Episode 1 of The Puerto Rico Connection – CogDogBlog. I think I just invented the word slowcast, but the idea of taking time to think and respond might be attractive?

Some of the things I’ve pinned to the board this week.

Grist from the pinboard.

Semi Automatic Linking⤴

from @ wwwd – John's World Wide Wall Display

I’ve often posted links to this blog and on occasion whole sets of links, usually from my pinboard collection. I’ve created them in various way. The idea is somewhat inspired by other blogs and the fairly recent resurgence of bloggers posting Newsletters 1.

My favourite is Tom Woodward’s Weekly Web Harvest which is an inspiration, a fascinating and wide ranging list.

Tom produces these posts automatically in WordPress grabbing the links from pinboard.

Recently Arron Davis was blogging about Scripting an Automated Solution to the same problem. I suggested throwing pinboard into his google sheet mix. This got me experimenting with google sheets and thinking about the problem.

In previous efforts I’d been wondering about separating my thoughts from quotes in pinboard descriptions 2. Thinking about this again I though the easiest way would be to use the markdown convention of putting a greater than sign > before the quoted lines.

I made a start in google sheets but hit a snag with parsing the quotes. Sheets seemed to add some extra line breaks to the RSS feed from pinboard (or pinboard has extra line breaks in RSS). Anyway I though it would be easier to handle in AppleScript.

The script I’ve come up with does the following

  1. Grabs the JSON from my pinboard links. (Could be a particular tag) 3
  2. Loops through the ones for the last few days.
  3. Creates an html list, each item consisting of the tile, linked to the original and the description.
  4. In the description it block quotes any line starting with >
  5. Opens BBEdit with the list ready for editing and posting (you could easily swap editors).

It would be easy to automatically post to the blog with AppleScript, but I want to be able to edit, fix typos and think a bit.

I’ve posted the script.

I am not sure if this would help Aaron. I don’t even know if he has a mac. But I had fun playing with this. AppleScript does not seem to be used by many(any) people I meet but I find it really useful.

  1. I don’t really like getting these in my mail, too easy to ignore, but you can often ferret out aa RSS feed. An exception is the marvellous Katexic Clippings which I read straightaway.
  2. I actually think this was long enough ago to have been with delicious!
  3. JSON Helper is great makes it easy to handle json in AppleScript
