I just had a go at doing this myself, and it's suprisingly easy and fun!
Once I setup all the bzr stuff I then grabbed an episode and starting
carving it up into segments. Basically just using TAB to start and stop the
audio, ALT+Left to skip back, and ENTER to add the delimiters between one
person speaking and another. This is something that can be done almost on
auto pilot and is quite fun getting the marker in roughly the right spot.
Left a bit, left a bit.. FIRE!
Once that was done I had a big list of segments to transcribe and just
worked through them. Again using tab to start/stop the audio, which is
useful because I'm by no means a fast typer! That said, I managed to churn
out a good few minutes of the podcast. A few more people doing this and
we'll be all caught up!
Thanks to everyone for offering to help with this, I think the whole audio
transcription "service" is fantastic.
