At present, Ben Franklin’s World offers text transcriptions for new episodes, beginning with episode 331. You will find links to these transcripts on the show notes page for individual episodes–again, at this time, we only have transcripts for episodes from 331 forward.
You are welcome to create transcripts of older episodes for personal and in-classroom use. Student accessibility offices at many colleges and universities will do this work for you. You might also try apps like Trint, Temi, Transcrybr, TranscribeMe, and Dragon Naturally. For TranscribeMe and Dragon Naturally you will need to play the episode from one device to another so the software can work.
