Why Using Human Transcription Is Best

In work, it’s always important to find better ways to work more efficiently. After all, the more efficiently you work, the quicker you can get tasks done and the more money you can bring. It’s important to target this way of working and see what you can do in order to improve your practices. If you are a business that does a lot of interviews or speaking with clients and customers that requires transcribing, you need to look at transcription services. These are a game-changer in the working world and will completely change the way that you do things. In this piece, we will take a look at just what transcription services are, how they work and what exactly they can do for you.


What is a transcription service?

A transcription service basically transcribes everything from interviews and meetings to videos and other recordings. It takes audio that you have recorded and then puts it into text, making it easier than ever for you to turn this into usable content. No matter if you need it for a report for a meeting at work, to change into an article for a blog or to write notes on, it makes it simple and effortless for you to do so.


Why use a transcription service?

There are so many reasons to use a transcription service and it is one of the easiest and most efficient ways for you to transcribe audio into usable, written content. Here we take a look at why you should use a transcription service.


It saves so much time

One of the best things about using a transcription service is that it saves so much time. If you don’t use a transcription service, then chances are when you have an interview or sound bite that needs changing to text, you need to sit and listen to it, writing word by word as you hear it. Depending on how long the piece of audio is, it could take you hours to transcribe it and will involve a lot of rewinding in order to make sure you have heard it correctly. This is time that could be taken up doing more useful things and tasks that will bring money in for your business, instead of poring over a number of audio recordings.


It is more accurate 

Another great thing about transcriptions is that it is much more accurate than if you were to transcribe them yourself. When you do it yourself, there is so much room for human error. You might miss bits in the recording or not hear what certain words are said. This can make it very difficult to transcribe into usable text. Because it also takes so long, you are likely to get tired by the end of it and again, be prone to making more errors. By using a transcription service instead, it is automated so it doesn’t make the same human mistakes that we might make.


It makes it easier to follow up on meetings

One thing that UK transcription services can do is they can transcribe your meetings that have taken place on Zoom, Google Meets or even in person, making it easier than ever to get your work done. Everyone can easily receive the notes on the same day of the meeting, not only making it easier to follow up but also sending it to people while it is still fresh in their minds. Due to transcription services being ready in a matter of minutes, you don’t need to wait for someone to manually listen and type it all out, taking time and effort out of their day.


It is safe and secure

By using a transcription service you can relax in the knowledge that they are completely secure, meaning your information and data is totally safe. Confidentiality and safety is a priority and companies such as TypeOut have invested in a 256-bit upload encryption service that means your files will not make it into the wrong hands.

I could not have been happier with the transcription service I received
from TypeOut. The turnaround was quick and of good quality (despite the
sector specific language and acronyms used in the audio files). Would use
TypeOut again to help with the burden of transcribing long qualitative
