Release Date: July 5th, 2017
We are proud to cut our first release of the Islandora Oral History Solution Pack. This module supports the association of transcripts in XML and/or WebVTT format with Audio and Video files, and the display of timecoded text information in a viewer, where cues are highlighted as the media plays.
This module has been tested against the 7.x-1.9 version of Islandora and should work with this release, and with the Bartik and Bootstrap Business themes in both Chrome and Firefox.
The following small issues have appeared from time to time in our testing. Each item in the list below is linked to the relevant Github issue. We welcome reprots from others experiencing these issues.
- We have not successfully tested the side-by-side transcript and viewer display option and are seeking to deprecate this feature. If you are interested in this display mode, please contact us.
- A new feature supports native ingest of webVTT files in multiple languages. We have not tested this feature with multiple languages, and are not sure how the module would behave if more than three webVTT files are added.
