Review, Edit, & Score Challenge!

Test your Sound Tag know-how!

 Are you a [BLANK_AUDIO] tag expert, or still a little bewildered?

CrowdSurf is here to help, we’ve created some Sound Tag practice for you!

Everyone is invited to participate in this fun challenge, whether you’re an experienced Level 7 CrowdSurfer, or a brand new Level 1 CrowdSurfer.

Whatever your role is in the CrowdSurf community, let’s take a moment to look at the bigger picture!

CrowdSurf is responsible for transcribing and captioning media so that deaf and hard of hearing users can enjoy the same experience as hearing users! This is where your transcribing and editing skills come in. We need every transcript to have 100% correct spelling, consistency, and word accuracy so that the transcript is an accurate representation of the media.


So, here’s your chance to show us what you’ve got!

We’ve created a special challenge so that you can see how sound tags should be used and graded in CrowdSurf Transcripts.
