Mozilla and PCF announce the 'Collaborative Subtitling Design Challenge'

Mozilla Labs, creator of the popular Firefox web browser, and the Participatory Culture Foundation (PCF) have announced the ‘Collaborative Subtitling Design Challenge’, an initiative to help make video on the web more accessible.

The challenge is looking for creative solutions to the question: “Collaborative subtitling – How can users quickly create a timed transcript of any video on the web?” It asks for people to design a subtitle interface which is simple and easy to use for multiple collaborators. The PCF has already created a prototype interface which allows the user to create subtitles quickly. Participants in the challenge are asked to test this prototype, and suggest design improvements in the form of mock-ups and videos. PCF will then incorporate these into the interface.

For more information, go to the Mozilla Labs website.
