The Marriott Library is exploring methods for creating transcripts for AV resources. We are working with files representing various qualities, formats, and genres. Transcripts are created using three workflows: manual transcription, Google Speech API, and outsourced transcription.  The time, cost, and quality of each are being compared to determine the best workflow for each file type. This presentation includes project details and lessons learned while making our AV content more accessible.
