Podcast Transcription authoring tool2020 Oct 10 WSJ
An authoring tool to create transcriptions of podcasts, leveraging automated speech to text services.
- Serverless architecture using Firebase.
- It fetches new episodes via the RSS feed daily using a CRON job in a firebase cloud function.
- It uses react transcript editor component to provide a UI to correct the automated transcription from STT services, while preserving word level time-codes.
BBC React transcript editor has got performance issues for transcript over one hour, but the average podcast for this use case is between 7 to 10 minutes, and max 20 minutes. So it's fine in this instance. But could replace with more recent
slate-transcript-editor if requirements change.
