Earlier, the word ‘transcription’ was connected only to the medical profession wherein doctors had to speak about patients, diagnosis, treatment and care. This was transcribed to share with the world at large. This audio transcription helped people all over the world to access information and this practice of transcription has helped to save many lives.
Now, audio transcription has branched out to include various sectors, aspects and diverse fields. Business will be grossly affected if nations are unable to relate with one another just because there is no one to translate or transcribe what a foreign community has to say to another, or what one nation has to say to another.
Most often, even if we do understand the language of the speaker, everything cannot be retained forever in memory. It would be of immense help if famous speeches can be stored in easy to read copies and files. In fact, important speeches should be stored as written text for future reference since they are sure to contain a treasure trove of important information that would be of paramount use for generation next.
A well known political leader’s or a CEO’s speech can be transcripted so that it would be of immense help to people from all walks of life globally to read and grasp at their leisure and convenience. If the language spoken is not known to many, a well transcripted version in text form will be of greater use. At times, the speaker might speak in fast paced tones or he may use an accent that is not easily understood by many. These are instances where audio transcription can have an important role to play.
A well drafted audio transcript can fully grasp the full import, essence and true meaning of the speech made by the celebrity or national leader. Professional expertise is of utmost importance when audio transcription is undertaken. The transcriptionist must be an expert at pronunciation, usage of words and further nuances of the language spoken. A transcriptionist who is adept at what the speaker is saying is in a better position to understand and grasp the essence of the speech and later transcript it within the shortest possible time to make it available to the masses.
Promptness and timely delivery of the transcript is of utmost importance as far as audio transcription is concerned. No one requires a audio transcription text days after the event is over. Most often in transcription, only the speech is transcribed and other voices are edited out. Even the exclamations made by the speaker are edited out and just the summary of the speech is prepared to be transcripted.
