The programs below have been useful for automatically generating a transcription of audio or video, which then only needs editing to properly identify speakers, fix grammatical issues, and be made human-readable. Once this has been done transcripts can be exported as Microsoft Word documents, which allows for easy find-and-replace editing that implements wiki-formatting syntax before copying the finalized transcript onto its respective wiki page. In addition, exporting and uploading to the wiki a .vtt version of the transcript allows it to be used in many of our [[Projects|community projects]].
