Here we will be adding transcriptions of episodes so that the podcast conversations are not missed by our deaf and hard of hearing subscribers, once we have enough support for a software assist. These will be posted in time with the podcast episodes whenever possible. Please help us reach this goal by becoming a Patron.
Below we have an example of our first transcripted episode! Please take a look and let us know how we did, and how we can improve. We are excited to offer this as a service to our readers, and hope you enjoy!
The software of interest is MaestraSuite, though we are interested in any suggestions you have based on your experience. Thank you!
