Big Media & Enterprise Flashtalks with Captions on WordPress.tv

I’d like to introduce Andrea Zoellner, a WordPress.com VIP Communications intern who has been working diligently over the past two months to do some great things with WordPress.com VIP’s communication! Among other projects, she’s spearheaded transcribing and getting the Big Media & Enterprise Meetup videos and transcripts available to the public as soon as possible. We hope you’ll give her a big welcome, and we can’t wait to share what else she’s been working on! —Sara Rosso. 

We’ve been posting videos of presentations from the Big Media & Enterprise meetups over the past few months, and we believe those presentations are one of the biggest resources for the WordPress community at large with regards to understanding how WordPress is being used for innovative and highly-scaled projects.

With the goal of helping the community in mind, we submitted the videos to WordPress.tv so the entire global community could discover and share them as needed. We also painstakingly added English subtitles and a full transcript to these videos to make it easier to follow along, increase accessibility, and make them translation-ready.

These videos are an opportunity to hear about interesting features and stories from some of the most sophisticated WordPress installs on the web. By recording the meetup presentations and making them available to the wider WordPress community, we hope more people will benefit from the content.

Check out some of our recent presentations which we transcribed and published on this site:

  1. I’ve been thrilled to watch several of the new videos from the Big Media and Enterprise meetups. Glad to see they’ve been published with transcripts. (I added the captions for the 3.8 and 3.9 announcement videos on WordPress.tv.)

    Just curious, how are you creating the transcripts? Are you using a third-party transcription company?

      1. Hi Andrea,

        Thank you for the quick reply. So the transcripts were created manually by a team of people at WordPress.com VIP communications who listened to the videos? Whoa, that’s a lot of work!

        I followed that process for the short announcement videos, which can be done quickly. It’s a much longer process for long videos.

      2. Deborah – not exactly a team – Andrea! 🙂 We think it was a good thing for the VIP team to dedicate some time to, so that other companies, agencies, and individuals can benefit from the talks!
