As campuses continue to videocast courses, many are finding a need for cost-effective, domain-aware and easy to use tools for creating accessible transcripts. This session describes a community of developers and users for automated video transcription based upon the Spoken Lecture Project from MIT. The group's goal is to transform this iCampus research project into a campus-wide service at MIT and to use it as the basis for a development and user community of colleges and universities collaborating worldwide. This session will demo the existing technologies and include a roundtable discussion of needs and requirements for a community-supported service.
