#newsHACK - Transcriptor (London, UK)


BBC Connected Studio and BBC News Labs are holding a collaborative hack event in London on 31st January & 1st February 2017, exploring the use and development of tools in Machine Assisted Transcription.

Machine Assisted Transcription tools are of huge benefit for delivering news, not only in the UK but to emerging markets and areas with low data coverage and/or high data costs; a growing issue within the BBC World Service and other leading players in this field. We're looking for prototypes that focus on either audience facing formats or journalistic efficiency.

A few examples to get you thinking…

  • Tools for editing video and/or audio from text transcription
  • Tools that generate automatic subtitles
  • Tools that are useful to mobile audiences
