      I'm interested in creating a tool that can instantly extract Chinese Subtitles that are physically embedded from Any Chinese video and output to a text file with time stamps--unlocking an endless supply of the highest Quality learning resource (native content, audial, visual, transcriptions). Transcriptions can be imported into Pleco's Screen Reader for immediate translations of the script without having having to manually search word definitions and can simultaneously be followed along while watching the video. Other apps can also be used like Chrome's Zhongwen Popup Dictionary, Hanping's Chinese Popup or any other method for more rapid and rich learning. In order to make this tool a reality it would have to be sold as service in order to compensate those build and maintain the tool; the service would be a site/app where you provide a video/url and pay an inexpensive price per video hour/subscription and the hosted software would immediately deliver you the transcription file. The software that extracts the subtitles would be required to be built on deep/machine learning principles (Artificial Intelligence). I've begun inquiring ML Engineers about their estimated cost to create this tool (Chinese engineers could also be potentially leveraged) and I intend to create a Kick Starter/funding campaign with the goal of creating the software, website/app and maintaining and improving the service if funding is met. Link to inquiry of ML Engineers: https://www.reddit.com/r/deeplearning/comments/9iicq7/request_for_quotation_of_a_use_case_from_the_dl/   What do you think is the size of the market for this service, language learners and other use cases included? There would need to be enough people interested to meet funding otherwise it couldn't happen. What are your thoughts?

      Anybody up for joining a group chat on hellotalk?   It's a bit of an experiment to give a different angle to learning.    Basically looking for a hsk 3/4 level person to join the group. A HSK 5 is OK if you have weak listening skills - you are looking to improve the overall listening aspect on material that you know   The group aims more focussed on listening skills and speaking rather than idle chatter and the aim is to have a proactive approach to with an approximate 50:50 split of voice and text messages in English and Chinese.    Quite a lot of people get short snippets of free time during the day so the recordings and corrections function on hellotalk might work out quite useful.    The group won't be large. Maximum of 12 initially to help get people more involved.    Please PM me for more details.    This is non-commercial.

      I am trying to find a specific tv series that I had a small role in 20 years ago when I was living in Nanjing. I forgot the name, and I only have some rough details about where/when it was shot and what it was about. I tried to get people to find it for me on fiverr.com, but no luck. Does anyone have tips on how I should go about finding it?

      Does anyone know of any resources for politics directed at intermediate learners? I find a lot of the time I want to talk about it but I'm missing so much vocabulary that it makes it really difficult.   Also looking for stuff relating to medicine and space, which is quite random, but I figured I may as well ask.   Cheers!
