Several instructors led students through the first transcribathon on October 25th, 2018 (stretching from Carlo Bajetta and Ileana Sasu at Università della Valle d’Aosta to Megan Heffernan at DePaul University). One of these instructors, Faith Acker, wrote extensive directions for her students at Northern Virginia Community College. These are suitable even for students who plan to get started on their own. So they can also help most anyone with questions about how to get started. Especially if the introduction offered elsewhere on this site leaves some of your questions unanswered, check out Faith Acker’s more detailed instructions.
