Transcribe to Digitize Challenge

Transcribe to Digitize Challenge

LPB is participating in the American Archive of Public Broadcasting’s Transcribe to Digitize Challenge. WE NEED YOUR HELP to meet our goal of fixing 100 computer-generated transcripts from historic LPB programming from the 1970s and 1980s by the end of 2019.  LPB will then be able to digitize 100 more vintage LPB programs for free thanks to the generosity of George Blood LP! These shows will then be available to you here on the LDMA and on the American Archive!
