I'M LISTENING to a host of voices during the month of June--some old and familiar and others new and interesting. It's part of the annual Audiomo Challenge when participants try to create a piece of audio every day of the month. Except this month, you can take the weekends off.
I'm trying to create content while educating different transcription services so today, I'm using Trint to produce the words that are below the fold of this blog post. I recorded my thoughts into my Sony Xperia Z5, uploaded the MP3 file to Spreaker where it folded into a collection of Topgold Audio Clips, and then also uploaded the MP3 file onto Trint's servers where it took 93 seconds to transcribe the content you see below. After I listened to the clip I made, I realise I misidentified at least one of the names and that's proof I'm slowly losing my memory.
Don't you love transcription technology? I wish it came with supplemental memory aids.
Voices from #audiomo and beyond
Okay, one of the big things that I noticed for audiomo is that you can find people who share the love of audio by using the hashtag audiomo and in so doing I realize I forgot some people. My god! You Can connect so many different voices through audio. I'll tell you something at the end of this cast about the ultimate honeypot of voices. But I realized I forgot Charles Peters. He's "Kingfish" (real trucker). I forgot Mandolin Minute and Turbostream. Andre, did I forget you? Did I forget to mention you? I mean you and Macolgan are like a tag team from my Audioboo time. I didn't mention Victorious One. I misidentified Lola although I think her real name is Olga. Robbin Milne--or is it Robin Milne--painting, gardening. Eli Garf-- he's in Japan although they don't participate in audiomo. Jangles (Neville Hobson) is a regular in my ear buds. So is Leo and you too--Leo Lombard--and you too, Bikeman. Clifford LeBlanc Nova Scotia. Leo Laporte is on TWIT. Tom Merritt on Daily Tech News Show. Beau Bridges is reading several of the audio books I'm listening to. Yeah. Important voices. If you're doing audiomo you should listen to the hashtag and discover some of these voices as well.
And then there's Andre Louis (in the photo). I'm thinking seriously about jumping into Andre's Patreon account: Patreon.com/onjmusic. He has absolutely personal creations he offers for people what the 50 dollar (five zero dollar per month) big whack of change but you know you'd spend in the old days you'd spend 300 bucks for them.
Who is it just forget the guy's name on the East Coast--he did a lot of really good jingles for Adam Curry and his crowd. Good stuff. Anyway I'll leave that in the comments here. [Editor's Note: TheGeoffSmith.com]
Enjoy audiomo! I will be back tomorrow with a day of my work--casting a day on my work. I have to extract it first though from Limor--just for you. I'm Bernie. I'm topgold on good social networks. Thanks for listening to audiomo. Bye for now.
