Ottawa Python: Over 200 Words Per Minute

  • Jan 28, 2016 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This talk will be live-captioned for the deaf or hard-of-hearing.

Plover is free software written in Python that enables you to type on a computer at over 200 words per minute. Plover brings machine stenography, an art older than computers, into everyone's hands.

Plover's current lead developer, Ted Morin, will talk about why Plover was created, how it works, and explain the role stenography might have in the modern world, as it moves beyond transcription and into the hands of hackers.

    Thanks everyone for coming and seeing the talk. I had a lot of fun and the input after was great. I'll see you all again in the coming months. Question → did anyone manage to record any piece of the talk? I'm missing my audio mainly.
