Hi, The State Library of Queensland (SLQ) Pitch In! project has three more weeks to go.
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:WikiProject_SLQ New users and anons are still appearing whenever the SLQ promote the project on social media. e.g. https://en.wikisource.org/w/index.php?title=Special:RecentChangesLinked&days=30&from=&target=Index%3AAustralian_enquiry_book_of_household_and_general_information.djvu SLQ has added an oral history to be transcribed, and after a bit of fiddling we have the transcription project ready. It is a 1h20m interview of Ian Charlton, a retired Queensland architect. SLQ has a large collection of similar interviews of significant architects, and hope this pilot will clear the way for more similar uploads. https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Index:Ian_Charlton.ogg The Proofread Page software doesnt have any special support for ogg files, however each page has a player preset to the desired starting point for transcription. The player should jump forward without needing to download the 80meg audio file. e.g. https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Page:Ian_Charlton.ogg/17 This transcription can then be 'incorporated' into the ogg file using the new Timed Media Handler. I've done a quick demo here: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/TimedText:Ian_Charlton.ogg.en.srt This is new territory for Wikisource, and the Commons timedtext feature is also fairly new to most of us. It would be great if a few members of this list can play around with this ogg project a little and report problems. Next week newbies will be asked to contribute to this transcription. There is a centralised discussion at https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Wikisource:Scriptorium#Transcribing_audio -- John Vandenberg _______________________________________________ Wikimediaau-l mailing list Wikimediaaufirstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediaau-l
