some factoids:

geographic region isn't a blocker, it can be done remotely.

"(although she can do transcription remotely as well)."  - http://composition.al/blog/2014/05/31/your-next-conference-should-have-real-time-captioning/

PyCon 2013 used a cell phone jacked into the sound board, text came back in a web browser. I have no idea what protocol or anything more about this.)  (I hear voip is used too.)  (I hear the latency of the video stream creates a problem for someone trying to follow along at the event, but this very hearsay.)

Transcripts can be read later, like watching the recorded video.

Transcripts can be searched later, un-like video.

Transcripts can be translated later.

The transcript can be used to subtitle the recorded videos.  (it takes a little work to A) organize the project and B) sync the text to the video (((the transcript timestamps lag by an inconsistent amount.))))))

Mirabai Knight is awesome.    "Plover, a free, cross-platform steno engine that works with $45 hardware, offers hackers and hobbyists the ability to type at up to 240 WPM in applications ranging from wearable computing to captioning to coding." - http://pyvideo.org/speaker/286/mirabai-knight
