Re: Transcription service for audio interviews?

I used to do transcription for a company called Rev. You, the submitter, set your rate of pay, and when you need it done by. Rev has a training module for all their transcribers and a review system.

The more you pay, the more experienced the transcribers will be (higher pay files aren't made accessible to new transcribers or transcribers with few hours).

Syllabus for a History of Modern Poland

I'd be delighted to see how others organize their version of this survey, and it would be really helpful to get feedback about any aspect of my syllabus. Most of the primary source readings for the class are my own translations, and I'd be happy to share them -- just email me directly to request copies.

Transcription service for audio interviews?

Hello H-Canada colleagues,

I'm looking for a reliable transcription service for a series of audio interviews, and I wondered if anyone had any suggestions of good services they have worked with, ideally one with an online interface for uploading audio and receiving transcriptions.

Thanks everyone,

What Books Do You Require?

Greetings, and thanks to all who previously responded to me about OERs.

I would be grateful for a discussion starting on what books you assign. Thank you, Loni Bramson
