“I can’t wait untill we get this transcribed!”

Video Transcription For Multiple Speaker Events

Transcribing and accurately identifying speakers in a multiple speaker audio file can be an almost impossible task and takes an extremely experienced transcriptionist; especially when you consider this is the first time these speakers have ever been heard by the typist! Video recordings eliminate the confusion and difficulty associated with identifying multiple speakers. This means that you have a more accurate transcription and often a much faster transcript turnaround.

Video Transcription For Presentations and Conferences

Speaker presentations and conferences often contain additional information other than just dialogue, this includes presentation slides, video presentations and speaker gestures. Having this additional input means that the transcriptionist can interpret what is being said much more easily and can also make research easier; again, meaning a faster and more accurate final transcript.

Video Transcription For Visual Descriptions

90% of information that goes to the brain is visual, even during an intense conversation; the majority of information is still taken from visual cues! Having a transcript with visual description, can really add to the context of what was said, as well as providing important information about the speakers themselves. This is a particularly useful tool for healthcare providers such as psychologists and psychiatrists.

Video Transcription and Marketing

Finally, video transcription is absolutely invaluable when it comes to marketing. Not only is it great for SEO, but also encourages deep linking, increased user engagement and offers a user friendly option to viewers who are deaf or hard of hearing.
