Important new enhancements to inclusive learning using recorded lectures
This paper explains three new important enhancements to Synote, the freely available, award winning, open source, web based application that makes web hosted recordings easier to access, search, manage, and exploit for learners,
teachers and other users. The facility to convert and import narrated PowerPoint PPTX files means that teachers can capture and caption their lectures without requiring institution-wide expensive lecture capture or captioning systems. Crowdsourcing correction of speech recognition errors allows for sustainable captioning of any originally uncaptioned lecture while the development of an integrated mobile speech recognition application enables synchronized live verbal contributions from the class to also be captured through captions.

Abstract

This paper explains three new important enhancements to Synote, the freely available, award winning, open source, web based application that makes web hosted recordings easier to access, search, manage, and exploit for learners,
teachers and other users. The facility to convert and import narrated PowerPoint PPTX files means that teachers can capture and caption their lectures without requiring institution-wide expensive lecture capture or captioning systems. Crowdsourcing correction of speech recognition errors allows for sustainable captioning of any originally uncaptioned lecture while the development of an integrated mobile speech recognition application enables synchronized live verbal contributions from the class to also be captured through captions.
