Day 235

I took on a sparked.com challenge today and it was tough!

The organization I volunteered for was OutLoud Radio. Their mission is to increase the well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer young people by helping them develop the skills and confidence to decide for themselves how they will be represented, advance social justice and make the most of their lives.

The challenge was to create subtitles for stories created by queer youth using the Universal Subtitles interface. It started off easy because it was just one person talking at a time. But a couple of seconds into it there were several people talking (not in the same conversation) and it got really difficult. In about 45mins I only did subtitles for 2mins of audio!!

I will probably revisit this one tomorrow...
