So I recorded a whole 2 plus minutes of something. I am going to be honest and say it was really scary, but I did it. The reason why it was scary is because I know my hearing is not the same as others, and I worry that there will be low key background noise that will affect audience experience. However, since this is going to be a podcast that is all about accessibility, and a podcast where accessibility will be foundational to the design and the product itself, I want to not be so hard on myself about that. It is basically going to be an extension of my Twitterness but in podcast form. Reminding folk of things to consider to make their pedagogy more accessible and giving them a space to ask questions.
And yet, this is where I ask you, if you are hearing anything, like background noise, hisses (which is basically how I navigate through life on the regular), let me know, and if you can guide me to how to fix that that would super appreciated!
Here is the transcript :
Intro to Podcast Test Transcript
[Theme song Wake Up You Must Remember by Orthothonics] 0-0:17
0:16-0:18 Hello and welcome to the first episode.
0:19-0:34 I think it’s kind of funny that at time where I spent the large majority of almost twelve years of my life on Twitter, talking about, accessibility and educational technology
0:35-0:42 at a time when, that platform seems to be imploding, that I have decided now is a time for me to start a new platform.
0:43-0:49 So here we are, episode one, having conversations about accessibility.
0:50 –0:53 This isn’t scripted. This isn’t planned.
0:54-1:02 Basically what this will be is 10, to 15, to 20 minutes of information about how to make your pedagogy more accessible.
1:03-1:12 There’ll be opportunities for you to write in and ask me things about certain aspects of your pedagogy that you’d like to make more accessible
1:13-1:18 I’ll take those reader comments and we’ll talk about them in the episodes that follow.
1:19-1:28 I’m also doing this right now during the day, because I have also thought about the accessibility of the actual podcast itself.
1:29-1:40 I thought well, if I record this at night it will probably be quieter, and then I realized that, that’s also a privilege that some people may not have.
1:41-1:59 So I’m here starting a project, a podcast project, thinking about the actual accessibility of creating a project that’s a podcast, where there might be some folk who don’t have the space to be able to create a quiet, non-disruptive podcast,
2:00-2:12 and also as someone who has tinnitus so I might not be able to hear some of the things and the scratches that you will hear, and I hope that also reminds you that accessibility is everywhere.
2:13-2:20 And that there are some things that need to be done to make podcasts more accessible.
2:21-2:26 So thank you for joining me on this journey; I look forward to our conversations.
