Very funny transcription of a training video using Google Voice

As mentioned here, today I've been evaluating some speech-to-text services. As a practical test of Google's transcription service, I called my Voice account and started playing one of my training videos from buildamodule.com. The idea being that it would be great to be able to search text in videos without doing an actual transcription, which would kill me.

The result was pretty poor and very funny. Here we go:

"Hi. This is Chris Shattuck google model, dot, com and in the studio. We're gonna be talking about working with function. Hoople. So what the video that came before this where we talked about a rate is. We're gearing this lesson more towards people. They don't have a backrest P H P Felt it, but they need to work with cooking, kuple for somebody. Hey, here's what we're gonna cover. First of all look at how to identify function. And then we'll talk about what the fuck's actually his, and while we were just want we'll go over some handy conventions for or preheating a function some. Technical, conventions as user scruples based in particular, hoarded using references, which is an important concept understand or is choosing Cox in. Kuple. Speaking folks will talk about how to identify hook function and you just want we won't go into a death in this lesson, but there is some other videos on the site they do. Thanks, we'll take a look at creating private function. Sir basically functions that we don't want other modules access. It's a look at using variables that are outside of the scooper function or they're basically to find somewhere else at triple. If I will look at storing of permanent dribble inside of function, so we can. We use it Let's go ahead and get started by looking at how to write that 5 Hi Chris, this to make it bigger we're creating a function We're gonna start off with the function. If you were followed by space next is the name of the function in this case it's demo underscore me following the our print this. He's an inside of those parentheses, or any parameters we wanna add to the function. So, the user is variable."

Some of my favorite parts:

  • Various transcriptions of Drupal: "Hoople", "kuple", 
  • "We're gearing this lesson more towards people" - as opposed to....
  • "First of all look at how to identify function. And then we'll talk about what the fuck's actually his"
  • "Speaking folks will talk about how to identify hook function"
  • "If I will look at storing of permanent dribble inside of function, so we can."
  • "So, the user is variable."

Okay, so using Google voice for legitimate transcription services is out. But, great for a party.
