Top 5 Reasons You Should Have Your Videos Transcribed
As videos are becoming easier to produce and distribute, more and more people are using them for a variety of reasons. With that in mind, here are our top five reasons to have your videos transcribed.
Video Transcription for Accessibility
Having an online or interactive transcript to accompany your videos means that they are accessible to everyone including those who are deaf or hard of hearing. Transcripts can also be translated in order to cater to viewers who don’t speak the source language, yet still want to enjoy your videos.
Video Transcription for SEO
With the huge amount of videos available, it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. As the search engines are not able to read the content of videos, having text to accompany your video (in the form of a transcript) helps you become more visible and increases your rankings in the search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing.
Video Transcription for Ease of Sharing
There are some situations where it is difficult to watch an online video, for instance if you have a limited Internet connection or are at work or school. Having a transcript to accompany your video means that your content can be enjoyed without having to play the video. It also means that the information can be easily shared on platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus or simply emailed amongst friends or work colleagues.
Video Transcription for Marketing
Video transcripts can be great for marketing you or your business and not only through the benefits it brings to the SEO, accessibility and ease of sharing. Video transcripts are very versatile in that they can be easily edited to produce blogs, articles or webpages for your business, all of which help with boost your marketing efforts.
Video Transcription to Saving Time on Video Editing
Having a time coded transcript for your videos or video rushes helps to make editing much easier, as it makes finding important sections of your video easier to find and edit, without having to watch through the whole thing. Many companies will even arrange for visual descriptions to be added to your transcripts, to help you to find any visual information you might want.
