Why transcribe or translate video lectures?
Nearly 20% of all Americans 12 years or older, or 48 million people, have hearing loss so severe that it may make communication difficult, according to a new study by Johns Hopkins Medicine reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine. The findings, thought to be the first nationally representative estimate of hearing loss, suggest that many more people than previously thought are affected by this condition and could benefit from video captioning.
This neuroscience course has students from ~30 different countries that speak many languages other than English. It is our goal to translate and transcribe the video content in this course into as many languages as possible.

How can I help by using NeuroTranscribe?
You can also make a difference by volunteer captioning. NeuroTranscribe uses dotSUB as a browser based, one-stop, self contained system for creating and viewing subtitles for videos in multiple languages across all platforms, including web based, mobile devices, and transcription and video editing systems. It's easy to use, nothing to buy or download, and it's fun. You can upload your videos, transcribe and time caption them, translate them into and from any language, and share them with the world. You can also embed the dotSUB player onto most websites and blogs with full dotSUB functionality.

How do I use dotSUB to transcribe or translate a video?
Watch the video tutorial below. The video (Duration: 4 minutes and 24 seconds) will show you how to transcribe and create time coded captions. We recommend that you watch the entire video so that you don't miss any important information. We also recommend viewing this video in "full screen" mode.

What are NeuroReward Points?
NeuroReward is a score system that keeps track of users contributions by rewarding students with points for completing community tasks. A NeuroScore Board is updated weekly that shows the leader board. Point leaders will be allowed to access new content and obtain status in the edXNeuroscience community.
