Description: 

Folkstreams.net collects and contextualizes important films on American Folklife. Many of these films have speakers with non standard accents and dialects. We are in need of people to help with closed captions. The process is started on a professional captioning service called Rev.com. We order the captions and a freelance profession does a first draft. The intern work would be correcting the texts and placement of the Rev.com draft. The work creates an intimacy with these interesting and important document of our national heritage.
