Procedure of working with an audio text


The objective of this technique is to allow users who cannot hear to be able to access real-time audio broadcasts. It is more difficult to create accurate real-time alternatives because there is little time to correct mistakes, to listen a second time or to consult someone to be sure the words are accurately reproduced. It is also harder to simplify or paraphrase information if it is flowing too quickly.

Real-time typing text entry techniques exist using stenographic and rapid typing technologies. Re-voicing speech-to-text (where a person listens to speech and then carefully re-voices it into a computer trained to their speech) is used today for telephone relay services and may be used in the future for captioning. Eventually speech-to-text with correction will be possible.


  • A radio station uses Web based captioning services to provide alternatives for live sporting events; the output from the service is incorporated in a viewport of the Web page which also includes a streaming audio control.



  1. Check that a procedure and policy is in place to ensure that text alternatives are delivered in real-time.

  2. Check that procedure and policy are working by conducting a random sample to see if text alternatives appear.

Expected Results

  • Both #1 and #2 are true.

If this is a sufficient technique for a success criterion, failing this test procedure does not necessarily mean that the success criterion has not been satisfied in some other way, only that this technique has not been successfully implemented and can not be used to claim conformance.

The best place to live Is...

The best place to live is  not a certain spot on our planet, this is the place where you feel happy, I think each of us has a such place for me is still Stone Harbor city, New Jersey. there I had everything: favorite job that brought me a lot of money, great friends, respect and a constant feeling of happiness. Stone Harbor is a small but very beautiful town with nice people. It located on the coast of the ocean. Every morning I rode a bicycle to work, making delicious pizza all day and in the evening I was walking along the shore of the ocean with my friends or girlfriend. In the neighboring towns were many beautiful places and every weekend I was discovering something new.


Friends, who I got acquainted with in Stone Harbor, are still my good friends. Each of us knew that someday the time comes to leave, and we were trying to cling to every day and every opportunity to spend time together. Before leaving the Stone Harbor we made a concrete slab and left our handprints. And I believe that it still remains in the same place.



I hope that in the future I will find the equivalent of the same good place in Kazakhstan or Russia. With all my love, I would not want to Stone Harbor was the best time ever. I will look for the equivalent of the place at home, and when I have, I will invite all my friends to visit me. Not only those who were with me in Stone Harbor and St Petersburg but also each of you. I believe that it will happen, because I do not want to live only by memories of how all was well in the past. And when you're my guest (with your families) we will walk in the evenings and cling to every day as the last.
