Back when I still had two real legs I did a great deal of audio transcription. Sometimes the audio would come in an MP3 file or a video and the client would want a Word file of the content. I found a terrific product called AVS4YOU. It has many great features that helped make processing audio and video so much faster and cleaner.
When I traveled the country on my motorcycle during the original B.R.O.A.D. (TM) journey I gave up transcription because honestly there isn’t much money in it and it was more equipment to tote around.
After I was hit and lost part of my leg, I began a video series of what life was like for me missing part of my leg. These videos were about showering, managing my living space to suit my needs, traveling with a wheelchair, trying to cook, and more. It was then that I needed to find a program that would help me put together quality videos in a user friendly manner. Again, I turned to AVS4YOU. The video series called, “Doing It With The B.R.O.A.D.” (TM) was a huge success and folks really appreciated the private understanding of what my life had become. I do not claim to be a guru at making videos, but thanks to AVS4YOU, they turned out pretty decent.
Now, a year has passed and a new video series is in the making. I am getting better and faster at managing AVS4YOU and creating the videos that will become “The Amp’d Rider Project”. This project, similar to the other project, is about sharing what life is like as an amputee but I’m taking it a step further and encompassing the love and passion I have for motorcycle riding. I am interviewing amp’d riders, professionals that modify motorcycles for amputees, and professionals that make it their careers to assist amputees medically and also with prosthetics.
And so I share with you these tidbits, but for this article I really want to share with you AVS4YOU because it is a wonderful cost effective tool for anybody that wishes to edit and create terrific videos and audio for any project you may have in mind.
Now, if you have an interest in the video series called, “Doing It With The B.R.O.A.D.” (TM), you can certainly find them on YouTube.
By the beginning of February 2015, “The Amp’d Rider Project” will begin on YouTube as well. In the meantime, you can see some of the one legged adventures…
