I love accessibility, so any show that is 100% scripted, my script = the transcript, and I'm happy to share it.
For podcasts with a cohost, there's no easy transcription software, and fiverr is actually a bit more than $5 for a 40+ minute show.
Some podcasts I know have had their listeners collaborate to transcribe, and I would love for that to happen for mine. So I'd like to set it up as much as possible from the beginning, so it's easy to do. (I'll transcribe too, when I can, but I think it's better to put my effort towards creating/editing new shows.)
I think my ideal tool would allow anyone to edit, but also allow banning (in case a troll gets into it.) When a transcript is considered complete, I'd like to "lock" it, as a read-only file. (Show notes would have links to the transcript.)
So should I set up a wiki somehow, or is Google Docs better? Unlike the StackExchange Podcast that inspired this, I am not familiar with GitHub. (I've never really played with wikis much either to be honest.)
It looks like Buffering The Vampire Slayer uses Google Docs, and then saves them as PDFs. (I would probably prefer to keep/move them to an html/xml format, but that's just me.)
So thoughts on good collaborative tools for this purpose? Thanks!
