Accessibility of information is something that is very important to us here at the Modern Technology Podcast Network. We realize that although our work is primarily audio-based, there will always be those for whom that is not the most useful data medium.
To best serve everyone we can, we are doing our best to post human-made, human-readable text transcripts of our work. This is a lot of work with hours of audio, so in addition to tackling what we can ourselves we have recently begun engaging the excellent services of a professional transcriber (shoutout to the wonderful Betty Sulwe!) and it’s our goal to eventually present all our work in readable as well as listenable formats.
Here’s what we have transcribed so far:
- Modern Technology Breaks episode 101
- Modern Technology Breaks episode 102
- Modern Technology Knows Your Name episode 101
- Modern Technology Knows Your Name episode 102
- Modern Technology Watches episode 213 – “Hackers” (1995)
- Modern Technology Watches episode 302 – “Sneakers” (1992)
- Modern Technology Watches episode 303 – “Citizen Ruth” (1996)
Transcripts of future episodes will be given priority as they are released, but we are slowly going to be filling in the gaps in our back catalogue as well. Those of you who are interested can contact us with your feedback. You can also let us know which of our past episodes you’d most like to see transcribed so we can queue things up accordingly.
As with all our original content, our transcripts will always be freely-licensed, copyable, and reusable under Creative Commons.
Share and enjoy!
