Convert Audio And Video Into Text With Digital Transcription

February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 162

Digital transcription is the process of transcribing your audio or video files into written text using digital software. Previously, transcription was strictly a manual process wherein an individual would listen to your audio or watch your video file and physically write down the words they heard. However, this took a lot of time and was prone to human error. When it comes to audio and video transcription you want your text to be error-free, and it is vital that your text is clear, concise and extremely accurate. This is why digital transcription has become popular. Digital transcription is done by digital software, thereby making the entire process more accurate, quicker, and cheaper. Because the process is done with the help of software, you no longer have to pay the high prices you previously used to.

There are myriad benefits to transcribing. Video transcription helps the viewer follow the content of your video by enabling them to read the text. This is exceptionally useful in educational and business videos. Very often we are so distracted by the happenings in a video that we fail to pay attention to everything that is being said. By being able to hear as well as read whatever is there, you reinforce your point to the viewer. Audio transcription is essential as understanding something only by listening is very difficult. Keeping in mind that accents can be difficult to understand, and that people have a tougher time focusing without visual aid, it is easy to see the importance of audio transcription.

There are various digital transcription services that provide clear, accurate and error free transcription. More and more organizations are beginning to make use of their services, as the advantages of digital transcription are getting clearer. These advantages are easiest to see online where Search Engine Optimization requires text. Search engines cannot watch your videos or listen to audio files in order to decipher what your website is about. Very often this means that your website remains low in search results even though you may have all the relevant content. How do you change this? Digital transcription is a great starting point. Search engines understand and index text, and they use this to understand your website (mainly keywords linked to website content). In order to optimize your website, simply have your audio and video transcribed and see a tremendous boost in your Internet marketing and SEO campaigns.

Today, considering the ease with which digital transcription services are available and the low prices that they are offered for, there is no reason to avoid it. Whether it is to enhance your videos, improve your website or simply to build your business presentation skills, digital transcription is now an easy and smart option.
