At Pop Up Archive, we're helping solve this problem making the spoken word searchable. We began as a UC-Berkeley School of Information Master's thesis to provide better access to recorded sound for audio producers, journalists, and historians. Today, Pop Up Archive processes thousands of hours of sound from all over the web to create automatic, timestamped transcripts and keywords, working with media companies and institutions like NPR, KQED, HuffPost Live, Princeton, and Stanford. We're building collections of sound from journalists, media organizations, and oral history archives from around the world. Pop Up Archive is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and 500 Startups.
