WFMU and the Free Music Archive are proud to bring you a fresh episode of Radio Free Culture, a podcast exploring issues at the intersection of digital culture and the arts.
In this episode, Cheyenne Hohman, RFC host and current Director of the FMA, was joined by Jemma Brown and Michael Guerra from The Moth, a storytelling podcast and event series. They came to discuss the recently unveiled transcription tool, "Together We Listen" developed by NYPL Labs and The Moth using Pop Up Archive technology, with the help of a Knight Foundation prototype grant. This tool turns transcription editing into a game, crowdsourcing edits and making stories more accessible to hearing impaired individuals, one word at a time.
Jemma Rose Brown is a the Digital Media Producer at The Moth where she creates web content, manages social platforms and leads digital strategy initiatives. Michael Guerra is the Media & Archives Manager at The Moth. To participate in their transcription intiative, "StoryScribe," visit http://storyscribe.themoth.org/.
