So I’m sitting here transcribing Show Girls, because that’s the basis of our next show, and for reasons that I have yet to fully understand, there’s no copy of the script online. Annoying.
Anyway, I’m typing along, making slow progress, when I remember that YouTube began transcribing videos a while back, and I’ve never made use of the service. Turns out, it’s really more like closed-captioning, so it doesn’t help me directly, BUT OH MY GOD IS IT HILARIOUS.
See for yourself: click here to jump to the clip of Nomi’s first rehearsal. Then click the “CC” button at the bottom of the window and select “transcribe audio”. AMAZING.
