We are at Oxford yesterday & today (excuse the time machine grammar), attending “Shock of the Old” yesterday and “Beyond Walls” today.

We will both report on it in more extended postings, in the meantime, you can “follow” it on twitter, if you are so inclined:

Today’s event, andyesterday‘s. Today is all about podcasting!

  • Script it first (speeds everything up and you have a transcript for accessibility purposes)
  • Speaking through an old pair of nylonsover a bent wire coathanger stops popping Ps
  • The cheap headset worked fine in a quiet room, but have to angle the mic so that it minimises popping P and sharp intakes of breaths
  • Record in short sections and clean up the breaths
  • If you want people to pause at any time (e.g. to walk somewhere or do something), introduce a chime or similar, and leave 4 or 5 seconds so that they can fiddle with their MP3 player
  • Exporting from Audacity to MP3 format will play in iPod and other MP3 players. Dan mentioned something about MP4A format, for podcasts – but this doesn’t seem to matter
  • Do ALL your editing before you create the navigation (i.e. written or recorded information about timings – what happens when in the recordings)
    • Post the navigation along with the recording, because it’s considerate
    • Is it possible to embed this information in the recording?
  • Exporting as MP3 will work on iPods: http://audacityteam.org/wiki/index.php?title=Exporting_your_Audacity_Project_into_iTunes_and_iPod
  • Restoring speech recordings: http://audacityteam.org/wiki/index.php?title=Sanitising_Speech_Recordings_Taken_with_portable_audio_player-recorders
  • You’ll need to select blips and turn them into Silence – the shortcut is CTRL +L

The Webteam (work@webteam.gold.ac.uk) will post podcasts

  • MV had the audio tour posted on CELT web site in the learn.gold section
