You forgot to add an enclosure with the url of the mp3 for the newest feed entry!
I told you I was ill! X) Fixed, please allow 20 minutes for the feed to refresh. Sorry about that.
Kroc, please for the love of our ears, do not blow into the microphone, put it *next* to your mouth, not in front of it.
I will one of these days get everything right x_x
This is the first time I've ran into one on osnews.
I'll just add my 2 cents
1. Could you include an inline player? Right now I click the mp3 link and it takes me away from the page to a new tab with quicktime. Maybe something like http://podcastgen.sourceforge.net/
2. In my fantasy ideal world, there is also a transcript Generated from an amazing speech-to-text program, with hyper links to the proper time sections
I'd love a transcript because listen English is harder (to me) than reading it, but, let's be honest, it is a lot of work to put in chars a whole podcast....
anyway, good podcast Kroc, congrats!
If we had speech recognition programs that good, we'd never need a keyboard or mouse again. Maybe in a few hundred years...
No way, I'll use a keyboard over voice recognition any day
Seriously. I hate the automated phone system which ask you to say something.
Automated operation: "Say English to speak in English"
You have to say English.
Before it was "Press 1 for English"
You just press the number one.
It's so much less distracting to those around you. Imagine working in a word processor and having to say everything you type. The office environment would be screwed.
I don't know about you, but even if we had 100% perfect voice recognition, I'd still use the keyboard and mouse as they're just damn good, fast, precise, and QUIET.
Those phone systems are a very good example of why our voice recognition technology is so bad at this point in time. They're trying to recognize all voices and, at the moment, that just isn't as practical as being trained to recognize one specific voice. To get even remotely reasonable results with voice recognition software at the moment, you need to train it to recognize your voice--that is what the reading procedure is doing when you first install one. It wouldn't be very effective for transcribing a podcast unless the podcast was being done by a single person. The only way you could get around this is to have voice recognition for each person in the podcast, and that would require the software to be installed on everyone's machines.
As for the phone systems themselves, I hate them, mostly because they absolutely seem to hate my voice. Don't know what it is about it, but they never seem to comprehend me no matter what phone I use. I'd also keep my keyboard over any voice recognition, just like I'd prefer if all phone systems still used number-based menus. Then again, if voice recognition ever reached 100%, I don't know for how much longer the keyboard would exist.
Anyway, back on topic... A very nice episode. Might want to fix the Garage Band crashes though.
I was curious just to see if automated captioning exists.
Sure it costs money, but not doubt some open source will get that done soon as well
Your wish is my command.
Nice show lads, the quality is steadily improving.
Some points on the show:
- Thom, wait till Kroc introduce you next time, we all know you are tehre anyway )
- I'm not totally sure that windows 7 would be a competitor for OsX, in fact Apple users buy the experiencwe, not the OS... Exactly the opposite of windows users.
- I liked the music interruptions between topic changes, they helped to focus more on the change itself. maybe alittle gingle?
Waiting for the next episode
