Audio transcript of Advanced OpenAccess ORM Interview now available

We don't usually make audio transcripts for Telerik TV videos available. There is no easy, automated way to do that (yet). But for the recent Advanced OpenAccess ORM Question and Answers interview with Team Lead Jan Blessenohl and Telerik CSO / Microsoft RD Stephen Forte, we made the extra effort to produce a complete transcript of the conversation. The interview contains lots of good information about OpenAccess, including:

  • How mature is OpenAccess ORM?
  • How does OpenAccess compare to Entity Framework?
  • How does the future of LINQ impact Open Access?
  • How do the new "advanced" features in the Q2 OpenAccess release work?
  • How does the learning curve of OpenAccess compare to NHibernate?
  • And, of course, what is the future of OpenAccess ORM?
So now in addition to our conversation, you can easily browse the content of what was said in the transcribed PDF. We hope this resource helps everyone access the information shared in this 50 minute discussion and we hope it helps you better understand OpenAccess ORM. (By the way, if anyone can type fast what they hear and wants to print money, go in to transcribing technical videos! Your competition is weak...) Download video transcript [PDF]

Thanks for the transcript. As one millions of deaf and hard of hearing people, I cannot access any audio components online. Actually, it is one of W3C accessibility requirements along with alt descriptions of images and also required by disability laws. They are also accessible for more people than you realize. Also, more people would prefer to skim text than listen all way to audio. Even blind users find it easier to use transcripts than podcasts. When you think about your users, you will get something in return, too, by improving your website's SEO and ROI.

While it is true that there are no "free"automatic voice to text services, there are some speech recognition programs that save your typing time.

One thing I would like to know about PDF format - it is not a really favorable to use from the user experience point of view. Many users dislike links that say "pdf". It is suggested to post a transcript online as an HTML page instead and add a link to download PDF. Also, HTML pages can be saved as PDFs in the File - Print - Save.

P.S. To correct typo - I meant to say as "one of millions". If speaking of the USA only, there are 36 millions of us - yes that's a lot.
