What is Hyperaudio?

Hyperaudio is just a transcript where each word has a start time and an end time. We have taken this concept and built out a JavaScript library, a web service, and a data format which you can access to build tools and experiences of your own.

What can I do with it?

When your users are playing a video on your website, you can know exactly what words are being said at what moments in time. What can you do with that? You could start pulling in contextual information automatically, show links to related content on your site, start to understand what your users are interested in. The list can go on and on, so rather than us telling you what you can do, why don't you tell us?

How can I use it?

Just about everything we have built is open sourced and on GitHub. For out-of-the-box integration with Hyperaudio you should take a look at Hyperaudio.js, which is a library that makes it easy to interact with our APIs.

Are you open source?

Yep! All our code is MIT Licensed.

How can I contribute?

You're awesome for thinking of it! First, you should come say hello in our IRC channel (#hyperaudio on Freenode). After that, you should fork our Github repository, take a look at our issue list, and issue a pull request.
