What is business transcription and how important it is for YOUR business?
Business transcription is converting audio or video recordings into readable text form. To give you a better idea of how it works, here are some scenarios where business transcription is necessary.
Think of a business meeting where the discussion must be put into writing. It would be nearly impossible for someone to capture everything that is said by each participant, so recording the meeting would be the best course of action. The audio or video recording would then have to be transcribed either for distribution or archival purposes.
If your business makes use of webinars, teleseminars, or online presentations, you will need to create a text version of the content so that you can distribute it to those who participated as a supplementary materials.
If you are a reporter or a journalist, you have to interview different people in . To ensure the accuracy of your report, you must not miss important details--and you can only do this if you record the interview and have it transcribed by a professional transcription service company. Once you have the transcripts, you can write your story or news piece without having to worry about missing vital pieces of information.
In business conferences, there are presentations on various topics. If your company attends conferences, you’d want to have a text-version of the presentations you can refer to. If you are the company making the presentations, you’d want to give your participants a condensed text version.
During brainstorming sessions, traditional note-taking is fine, but there will be times that you’ll find it hard to keep up with the discussion. Recording the sessions and listening to it at a later time work better. Having it transcribed can give you more accurate details.
Business coaches (marketing, lifestyle, financial, etc.) record their sessions and would want to share them with their clients in text form.
Bloggers, vloggers, and podcasters have audios and videos that could run for hours. After the initial podcast, some podcasters release shorter versions by topic or theme. Others repurpose the content by having them transcribed so they can be distributed through other social media channels.
Businesses, in general, just want a documentation of meetings, sessions, conferences, interviews, and other interactions. It could be for archival or legal purposes.
No matter what business you are in, you would benefit from having your audio and video recordings transcribed into text format. You can use them in a variety of ways to promote your brand, create awareness of your product, or have a wider audience reach.
The reality is that there’s really no staff dedicated solely to transcribing audio and video recordings. It’s a job that tends to be put on the back burner until someone has the time to do it.
The problem is that the more you delay this, the more opportunities are wasted. Companies who understand the importance of business transcription outsource the job to a reliable transcription service provider. Because professional transcribers are doing the job, you can get more accurate transcription at a faster turnaround time.
