Video Transcription and Identifying Speakers
Focus group and group interview transcription is notoriously difficult, especially if you have a group of 20 participants that all need to be identified, simply by the sound and tone of their voice. One of the great things about video transcription is that it eliminates many of the difficulties faced when trying to identify who is speaking in a group setting. Not only does this increase the accuracy of your transcripts, but it also speeds up the turnaround time of your transcripts.
Video Transcription Can Reduce the Need for Research
Recordings such as lectures, seminars, tutorials, meetings and conferences often include important visual information that can be missing from audio recordings. Having a video recording of these types of events means that visual information (such as projectors, PowerPoint or Keynote presentations) can be easily seen by the typist. This not only reduces the need for extensive research, but also radically reduces the turnaround time of your transcript, increases accuracy and may in some cases reduce the cost of your transcripts.
Video Transcription can be used for Subtitles and Captioning
Subtitles and captions are a great way of catering to a wider audience, be that those who are deaf or hard of hearing, speakers of a foreign language (through translated subtitles) or to simply add important onscreen information for your viewers (such as dates, times, products, names, etc.) This will not only increase your viewership, but can also enhance the quality of your videos.
Video Transcription and Visual Descriptions
For those who are using their recordings for analysis, being able to have both audio and visual cues available can be invaluable in terms of analysis. For instance, not only can we provide a discourse analysis from the audio, but also a visual analysis from the video.
As you can see, there are a number of advantages to having your videos transcribed. We accept a wide range of video formats and can even download your videos via links, as well as popular video sharing platforms such as Vimeo and YouTube. If you would like more information about the different video transcription services we offer, or would like a free video transcription sample, why not get in touch today? We are available 7 days a week and are always happy to help.
