We have 20gig of audio recordings which is roughly 80 hours of audio recordings. The audio is from a recorder worn on a person, so this will contain large sections of audio that has no speaking in it (and will not need to be noted)
On the audio, there are 5 voices, a man, a woman, three children (one older girl, one boy and one younger girl), there may also be audio from music, tv or movies in the background, the background audio does not need to be transcribed.
We will need a time stamp at the start of any conversation and in 15 second increments during the conversation. We will need the speaker and their words on a line, like so:
03:15 - Woman: What are we doing for dinner tonight
Man:We are going to eat out
Boy:I want pizza
Man:No, we had that last week, we're going to 5 guys
03:30 - Woman: I'd rather go to applebees
Man: That is above the budget
Girl1: I like applebees
Girl2: mommy mommy
Girl2: I'm thirsty
3:45 - man: here is some water
Boy: so are we going
4:12 - man: lets get in to the car
Each individual file will need its own Microsoft Word document with the transcription, we will also consider a plain text document as well, MS Word is preferred. The name of the word document or plain text file will need to match the audio file name. Please see example file. We will provide access to an internet storage system for the remainder of the files.
We've listened to a lot of the recordings already, there shouldn't be a lot of audio that is unable to be transcribed, however, for those sections, if the person who is speaking can be identified, that will need to be noted, as such with a time stamp for each line with inaudible comments:
1:12:50 - Woman: I don't care about your job I want to go shopping for (inaudible) and I'm taking Jane with me
Please note, the work needs to be done by 5pm Eastern Time (USA) on the 16th of March. Priority will be given to bids that can complete this a day or two earlier, multiple people can work on this. Also, please note, the transcription will include profanity and it will need to be transcribed exactly as it is in the audio,
