The goal of this project is the production of multimedia lecture contents for e-learning applications. We shall take as a pilot study a course for which the didactic material (e.g. text book, problems, viewgraphs) is already electronically available and in Portuguese. This is an increasingly more frequent situation, namely in technical courses. Our contribution to these contents will be to add, for each lecture in the course, the recorded video signal and the synchronized lecture transcription. We believe that this syncronized transcription may be specially important for hearing-impaired students.
