WFMT Studs Terkel Radio Archive Transcription Internship
|# of openings:||1|
The Studs Terkel Radio Archive, a partnership between the WFMT Radio Network and the Chicago History Museum, is looking for an intern to accurately transcribe programs based off an automatically generated transcription in the archive. This internship can be completed onsite or remotely.
Transcription is a vital element in how we share Studs Terkel’s radio legacy. The transcription intern will use cutting edge browser-based text-to-speech technology to correct automatic transcripts via Trint (https://trint.com/). Completed transcripts are an important part of rounding out the archival record. This internship requires critical listening skills and attention to detail. Interns are expected to actively transcribe and conduct related research for four hours each week.
The transcription intern will be exposed to a primary source collection that documents the second half of the twentieth century in the United States like no other and will improve critical listening and research skills.
The ideal candidate must be comfortable working in a digital/online environment, including searching a digital asset manager; and must have strong research skills. Must critically listen and pay close attention to detail. Must be able to manage time and tasks; this is a self-directed internship. The intern(s) will work with the Archivist and Digital Content Librarian to establish priorities.
Interested students should attach their resume and cover letter expressing their qualifications and interest in the internship. Candidates who are believed to be a good match will then be invited to complete an application and come in for an interview.
