    Ok i'm super blazed right now so that might be why i think this would work but couldn't these article submitters just turn on dragon and hold the mike next to the history channel and record the shows to text, run em through a content rewriter, then sell em? ive never done article submits - too much work but those people that do this shit - would this work?

    Hahah, now that is thinking outside the box. I will definatly have to try that, I just wonder if the sound will come through clear enough for DNS to pick it up. Hmm I need to find a wireless mic today.

    You could expand that to a lot of things. Radio talk shows for political commentary, sports news, gossip, etc.

    Why would you even need to rewrite them, the text is probably not even online.

    Yeah, didn't catch the rewriting part. Definatly no need for that. Core idea is great if the sound quality comes through all right. Consdering most people on television speak 'broadcaster' without accent I wouldn't think that would be an issue, should dictate fairly clean.

    Hmm actually a pretty decent idea :)

    Only problem is that most doco's don't exactly sum things up within 500 words, so you would probably have to summarize it yourself.

    Wouldn't know. I've never bothered with articles before ;)

    But I would probably say just use every 5min worth of the doco as a separate article. Would mean you would have some pretty long articles with 2,000+ words, but I've noticed that in most doco's, they will change focus around about every 5 min which could class as another article for you.

    ahah buddah ftw!!

    but instead of using the history channel's nararator voice, just repeat what he is saying with your own voice into your mic word for word.

    just listen and repeat!

    I dunno, the laziness within me likes the idea of taking it right off the tv or radio. Can set it up on the laptop to record, and work on the other computer. Just have to do some editing and break it down into smaller articles when it's done.

    Guess you'd have to get rid of the commercials too. :)

    putting this all together with some of freqouts advice, one could easily train someone do this fairly quickly and you could easily automate this!

    yea i dunno my experience with dragon is that it was very typo prone to begin with so id imagine it would be incredibly bad with a tv's voice with all the sound effects and music messing it up. (theres always background music and that will mess it up beyond recognition) but its still really easy way to get content for articles without and mind work.

    another way to get this done is just find a source for these episodes streaming on the internet and pay someone to simply watch the video and transcribe the words to text for you.

    I think radio talk shows, voice siminars, hell you can even download stuff from a torrent play it and record. Thats a brilliant idea. History channel, science channel, satellite radio, the possibilities are endless. who buys articles? i think i want to give this a go.

    What advice? All I see is getting sued for copyright infringement. Real Quick.

    Easiest place is associated content, about $4-5 on average per article.

    Gaurantee you someone is already working on their rough draft PDF as we speak.. lol sad.
