Why Your Business Needs Transcription Services

Transcription is converting audio from a file into clear documented text. So, if you have an audio recording or a video which you need to work from or analyse, it can be beneficial to use a transcription service so you can revisit the conversation easily.

Why do businesses use transcriptions?

There is such a range of reasons why businesses decide to get their files transcribed. For example, if an office of a worldwide company needs to re-create a video to suit the country they are in, they may need to translate the original video. To make this run smoothly, they could first get the video transcribed. The translater will then have a clear typed scrip to work from. Overall, the job would get done quicker and more efficiently as opposed to the translate stopping and starting the video, trying to figure out what each member of the conversation is saying. 

Audio and video transcription are often used in court cases too. The interview transcription can then be used to remind the jury of the case in question. 

How do I use transcription services?

Transcriptionists are professionals - the work they carry out is very skilled and requires high levels of focus and attention. Most often, a transcriptionist will have a foot pedal under their desk which is linked to file playing software. This allows them to stop, start, rewind and fast forward the recording with the use of their foot - working faster with their hands free for typing.

A transcriptionist can also add time-stamping to the text. This is an indicator to the point in the audio or video file where the words are being spoken. If this can then be used to aid subtitles and dubbing. 

How do I find a transcription service?

When looking for an agency, you want to think about exactly what you want to get out of your transcription. Services range from summary transcription to strict verbatim (including acute details such as stammers and coughs). 

Check out the website of the agency - do they have relevant information about safeguarding your files? How do they make sure your transcription is secure? 

Another great way to ensure you are choosing the best transcription agency is to take a look at the reviews or ask for a recommendation from someone you trust. The best agencies will be slightly more expensive than a voice recognition software, but human transcription is a lot more accurate and worth your money.
