CastingWords Put to the Test

I recently wrote about CastingWords which is Nathan McFarland's podcast transcription service.

Jon Udell recently put CastingWords to the test when he used it to transcribe McFarland's own podcast and then edited the transcript.

The transcript weighed in at 5600 words and Udell found only 22 words that he had to correct (original/corrected).

  • screen cast screencast
  • Homes" Holmes'
  • Suns Sun's
  • peer two peer peer to peer
  • computer farm compute farm
  • but kicked butt kicked
  • baring barring
  • tasks takes
  • librafox LibriVox
  • swan.com salon.com
  • acceptability accessibility
  • here hear
  • approvable a provable
  • statistic statistical
  • resource tool resource pool
  • from rare some rare
  • go over go after
  • if of
  • flash Flash
  • same same way
  • task it task in

Looks pretty good to me. Udell doesn't mention how long it took to transcribe the podcast. CastingWords cost 42 cents per minute and if this was a 5 minute job then that seems very reasonable. It it took an hour, though, that's going to hurt.
