Based on your feedback about our in-transcript editing, we’ve given our editing interface a little makeover. Learn how to edit your automatic transcripts to perfection in our intuitive new editing interface. Speed up your way to a perfect transcript by pausing, rewinding, and jumping around lines in Pop Up Archive’s new edit mode.
Step 1: Click “Edit Transcript” to enter the editing workspace.
Step 2: Click around your transcript to edit any line.
Now try clicking a line of your transcript: It looks just like a text editor. No need to be on the line that’s playing, simply click around your transcript to edit from any point in the text.
Step 3: Press play, click a line, and edit as you listen.
Use these simple key commands to pause, rewind, and navigate within your transcript.
Step 4: We’ll save your changes along the way.
We auto-save all of your changes as you edit, and once you’re finished editing you can go back to the normal play mode by hitting “Save Transcript.”
By starting with automatic transcripts and using Pop Up Archive editing tools, you’ll be looking at a complete transcript in record time. And when you’re done, you can search the exact words and phrases from your audio to the second.
Politicians, by trade, speak often and at length. But the news cycle moves fast, and many words are quickly forgotten, or impossible to recover from hours of broadly labeled footage. That’s where we come in: rather than sift through hours of CSPAN video to research what’s been said about a policy, a search in Pop Up Archive takes you to the exact timestamped point of the relevant discussion.
We’re processing audio for a number of news syndicates. Here are some news collections where you can search political keywords from the public archive:
While we’ve got you covered for radio news, what if you’re looking to search TV news? Thanks to a project from our friends at the Internet Archive, television news footage is more accessible than ever through the TV News Archive. They take media which has already been captioned and make that text searchable to the second.
The age of passive political listening is past. With these tools, you can zone in on your favorite issue with unprecedented acuity.
