Last week I put out a community challenge for WordCamp speakers to caption their talks and help make WordPress.tv more accessible. Now I’m issuing a personal challenge to the speakers at WordCamp NYC and WordCamp US to start the ball rolling by captioning their own talks.
Why these two WordCamps in particular? Because they both had CART captioning, which means text transcripts of their talks already exist. And those captions have been made available for everyone to download!
So here’s the challenge:
If you spoke at WordCamp NYC or WordCamp US in 2015, go to the spreadsheet, click the tab for the appropriate event (WordCamp NYC text or WordCamp US text), grab the text file, sign up for an Amara.org account, and caption your own talk.
Almost all the work has been done for you, so if you want to get the most out of the least amount of work, this would be a great task to start with.
You can help make WordPress learning more accessible, and it all starts with captioning your WordCamp NYC or WordCamp US talk!
