Presented by John Krout
In this digital video era, closed captioning, in the same language as the speaker, and subtitles, in foreign languages, have become synonyms. Both rely on a combination of technologies in the digital video file itself and in the digital video player software. Subtitles can be valuable for anyone watching the video in a noisy environment, like a plane or train, and can be a definite plus for any hearing impaired viewer in any environment. This presentation will show you a process for making that English sub-title happen in any video with English dialog, no matter the source. The process includes (1) obtaining text from speech in a video, (2) editing that text, because no speech to text conversion is perfect, and (3) merging the text into a video file. Your presenter has already used this process to add English sub-titles to some of his recorded presentations for past PATACS+OPCUG meetings. Additionally, you will learn how to use the free VLC media player to turn on and off subtitles, and to adjust the size of the subtitles on the screen.

Scientists communicate by publishing results of their research in journals, which are the primary source, and historical record, of science information. But what is a journal and how does a scientist get his/her information published? The first science journal was published in January 1665. Science journals were printed on paper and distributed to libraries and individuals until late in the 20th century when distribution began electronically via the Internet. Learn how this information transited from petrochemicals (ink) on crushed trees (paper) to 1s and 0s transmitted electronically.. |
Lorrin Garson had a long career in technical publishing of chemical information. His presentations to our computer groups are famous for their thorough research and clarity in explaining topics such as cryptography, encryption of personal data, cloud storage and the origins of personal computers.
