Matt Mireles tells a great story about how he and his co-founders started SpeakerText. He’s a regular guy who had an interesting idea. What if the text of what was being said in a video ran along side the video in question? But, he didn’t stop there. He envisioned a set up where you could copy and paste the text and it would port over with the text a hyperlink to that exact moment in the video.
Here’s a sample that was copy&pasted from the demo video on the SpeakerText website: Highlight the quote in the SpeakerText, then either right click your mouse button and select “Copy QuoteLink” or hit the “Quote” button.
