Looking for volunteers to transcribe all Radia tapes

As you know, Open and Outlook magazines have put out legally taped telephone conversations of several people with lobbyist Niira Radia. Open put out only a few audios, and transcribed them all, where as Outlook put out a somewhat different set. However, Outlook was kind enough to put out all the audios they had on their website. There’s a lot of muck in there, and it’s not just about Barkha Dutt and Vir Sanghvi, it’s not just about the 2G scam. It’s very crucial that we transcribe ALL these tapes so that the words are on Google, se we can access the content of all tapes more easily. The media should have done this by now but the media is silent to save the skin of their own. So we need to become the media, you and I. Just 15 minutes of your time needed. To volunteer, just leave a comment below with your email address.

    why not get a speech -to -text software and do the transcribing? after that all you have to do is just cross-check/ edit the transcript.
    Both Nuance ( Dragonsoft speech recognition: price around $75) and C-Dac have such soft wares. Will save lots of time and effort.Not expensive, just pool some money.

    It will be nice to see a progress ticker in the homepage, regularly presenting an update like ‘x out of N tapes transcribed’.
