This is to check if the hitch with cross-posting to this blog has been sorted, plus I’m curious to see how the transcription software copes when given a message from a mobile in the Outer Hebrides.

As far as the transcription goes it’s by no means perfect, but I’m impressed nonetheless. I’ve left it untouched so others can form their own opinions, but there is an edit facility, which you would need to use if you were going to use it for teaching purposes – unless that was the task for the students themselves?

Any takers for developing Gaelic automatic transcription? That would be some labour of love…
