Interview Transcription With A Greater Purpose

October 5th, 2015

It is true that every word we transcribe here at Scribie has our heart and soul into it. However, it is not every day that we get to serve a greater cause through our work. But that did happen a few days back when we got to transcribe a documentary film for one of our clients that addressed a very important issue of our planet.

Blonde + Co., one of our clients, recently interviewed Will Tuttle, the American writer, speaker, musician, and co-founder of the Circle of Compassion and the Worldwide Prayer Circle For Animals. This interview was a part of a documentary film that the organisation is making to enlighten the world about the brutality that animals face worldwide. In his interview Will Tuttle highlighted the issue of ‘commodification’ of animals. He believes that we as a society live by the principle of commodification where animals are perceived as a thing that can be bought, sold, and killed. He also believes that while hurting animals we are also inflicting wounds on ourselves and our planet. These ‘wounds’ are on a far deeper level than just the ones on the body because the process is causing devastation slowly but surely.

Animal cruelty barely needs any introduction. Every year more than 70 million animals succumb to human greed. Although much has been spoken about the issue, the problem is still persistent and begs attention. So, when the opportunity of associating ourselves with such a noble cause showed up, we gladly accepted. We were very happy to provide free transcription service to Blonde +C for this purpose and look forward to associating ourselves with many such causes in the future. This is our way of making a difference and we are ready to go the extra mile.

Interview Transcription

September 22nd, 2015

Interview TranscriptionPeople use transcription services for various reasons in their personal and business lives. For some of those people, they use them for their interviews. Whether you are a writer who is doing research for a book, a reporter or journalist working on a hot story, or a researcher gathering information for your study, the information gathered in your interviews are vital. That information is later used to write up your stories or reports and you want to ensure that you have all the necessary information.

One benefit of transcribing your interviews is sometimes it could be hard to hear what’s being said in the audio file, whether it’s you or someone else listening to the file. A transcription copy easily provides the necessary information needed. Another benefit is easy access to the information. With a digital copy of your interview, it’s easy to search for specific phrases or words discussed in your interview. A third benefit is saving time. Be honest, sometimes the simplest conversation transcript can take a long time to complete due to the accuracy being required.

Lastly, you may not have the tools at your disposal to accurately transcribe your interview. Depending on your location at the time, there could be background noise that needs to be filtered out in order to hear everything. Imagine your local Starbucks and all the coffeehouse noises that go on throughout the store. Another aspect is there could be more than one or two people speaking in the interview and you need to be able to accurately distinguish between the voices. Think of a focus group being interviewed and sometimes there may be people talking over each other trying to be heard. That’s where a professional transcription service can come in.

A good quality transcription of your interview can be hard to come by. You could do it yourself or have someone on your team do it, but having professionals take care of it for you not only saves you time, but provides you with satisfaction and peace of mind. You have the assurance that it’s been done right and that nothing has been missed.

Many companies out there offer you accuracy and are willing to transcribe audio with background noise and multiple speakers. The downside is that many of them charge extra for background noise and will charge you per speaker. With Scribie, you pay a flat rate for audio with background noise and multiple speakers. That’s right, Scribie won’t charge you more for an audio file that may be tougher than normal audio. Consider Scribie for all your interview transcription needs and have the peace of mind that you deserve. Start uploading your files now!

English Podcast And Transcription

September 14th, 2015

podacastMost Internet marketers would agree that podcasts are a goldmine that’s waiting to be explored. For the uninitiated, podcasting refers to a form of audio broadcasting on the Internet. A user can download the podcasts and listen to them whenever he or she wishes. However, the secret to turning these audio files into a potential moneymaking machine begins with having them transcribed, but that is not all. Transcription plays a very vital part in expanding the audience reach of a podcast and in improving the SEO. Wondering how? Keep reading!

  • Transcription helps in reaching people who cannot listen to the podcast. This includes not only the hearing impaired but also those who do not have proper audio facilities on their computer or those who must keep the volume low or turn it off.
  •  Sometimes transcriptions help in better understanding the content. This is because when a person is reading the content while listening to it, the idea gets doubly clear.
  • There are many people who prefer reading more than listening. A transcribed podcast is more than welcome to them.
  • Transcriptions give you the freedom to create a document with clickable links if you want to. This helps in directing your user to all the websites that you want them to visit.
  • Transcription boosts SEO by using searchable keywords. Since Google cannot index audio or video files, transcription is the way to go. This helps to make your content easy to search, share, and market, finally leading to an improved page ranking.
  • You can easily package the content of a podcast into articles, blogs, newsletters, or even e-books. Marketing your own content is becoming a very appealing trend among online marketers and transcription is surely the way forward.

The benefits of transcribing your podcasts are many, and the good news is, you don’t have to do it by yourself. Our team of experts can get it done for you in no time. So why not give it a try? Enjoy your first FREE podcast transcription at Scribie today!

YouTube Video Transcription

September 7th, 2015

yutube videosTranscription has come a long way. Nowadays, you can have a variety of audio files transcribed into various formats to meet your needs. You also have your pick of companies to do the service for you depending on your needs. However, there’s another type of format that some may not even think about when it comes to transcription.

In this digital age, more and more of us are using videos, whether it’s to save on time or you find it easier than typing out what you have to say. The question then arises, what do you do if you need those words? How can you get your videos, in particular your YouTube videos, put into word form? You’re in luck because today’s blog post will discuss some benefits of transcribing your YouTube videos and the best ways to accomplish this feat.

One benefit of having your YouTube videos transcribed is accessibility. It doesn’t take much to realize that there are a lot of videos on YouTube. It is believed that more than 1 billion people use the services, with each minute seeing 300 hours of video being uploaded to the site. Google indexes their videos and by having them more accessible that means people with hearing disabilities or from varying countries around the globe can utilize the information. The other side of that is by having your video accessible to more viewers, the higher Google ranks the video.

On top of accessibility, some of you may want to draw more audiences to your videos. If you have a transcript for your YouTube video, it adds search engine optimization (SEO) strength to the video. Whether it is for accessibility reasons or audience draws, having accurate transcription allows for keyword optimization and it means search engines don’t have to rely on your title and description alone to know the content of your video.

Okay, you can see some of the benefits of having your YouTube videos transcribed and YouTube actually provides a free service to do just that for you. While some videos can be transcribed in YouTube, there are certain limitations, such as number of speakers and audio quality. Also, if you aren’t computer savvy, saving the transcript into text form could be a little confusing as it gives it to you in an HTML format. Not to mention, the accuracy of this type of transcribing is limited to what it thinks it hears in the audio. The result is that the concept of your video could come off in the wrong light or image.

It is possible to take matters into your own hands. There are countless webinars and tutorials on YouTube and the web that could show you how to do this on your own, but let’s be honest, that could take a lot of time out of your already busy schedule. Not only do you have to transcribe your video, but you also have to research the best way to do it. You may not have the time to do this or even want to do this.

A good option for your YouTube transcription needs is Scribie. All you need to do is provide the link for you video when you select to upload a file and you will get a transcription file with a 98% or higher accuracy. Scribie offers a variety of rates and turnaround times with a variety of extras included in the price such as multiple speakers, speaker tracking and word documents. Click here to see for yourself! Most other services will charge you extra for those things. Consider Scribie for your YouTube or any other transcription needs today.

Automatic Audio Transcription

August 31st, 2015

automatic audio transcription software

Audio transcription can be a long process, especially if you are a newbie in the field. For many, the automatic audio transcription offers an easy alternative. But is the short-cut worth taking? Statistics would not say so. Express Scribe, an automatic transcription software, offers an accuracy of around 40 -60% when integrated with the Microsoft Speech Recognition. Google Voice, on the other hand, offers an approximately 80% accuracy but only while transcribing voicemails. That percentage goes significantly down for conversational speech audio. The appalling performance of the various automatic audio transcription or speech recognition software programs even today makes one think why it is so. The reasons undoubtedly are many.

The software fails to factor in the various styles of speaking

A language changes its character depending upon who speaks it. For instance, the way English is spoken in the US is different from how people in India speak it. Teaching a software program how to recognize the variations in human intonations and accents can be very challenging. The problem multiplies when there are groups of speakers involved. Analyzing voice can be equally frustrating for a program. The ease with which the human ear can decipher the spoken words by a variety of voice quality, such as hoarse, soft, deep, etc., does not work in case of a software. In the ideal world, the speaker would have to speak clearly and carefully in order to be accurately transcribed by an automatic audio transcription system. But unfortunately we don’t get to work in an ideal world scenario.

English can be a tricky language

Sale, sail. Year, ear. Feet, feat. You get the drift. Homophones can be quite tricky and sometimes becomes impossible to understand from a spoken language if we don’t understand the context. Quite obviously, this is a high expectation from a software, and this naturally leads to undesirable mistakes.

The better alternative

Hiring a transcription service with a team of experienced transcribers is still the best. Old is gold when it comes to accuracy, at least in this context. Scribie is completely powered by humans and hence is able to consistently maintain accuracy level of 98% or higher. Want to find out for yourself? Start uploading your files now.

Video Transcription For Subtitling

August 24th, 2015

Subtitling and TranscriptionSubtitling or captioning is an important aspect of an audio-visual experience. It helps your content reach a wider audience, especially people who are not familiar with the language or are hard of hearing. If you are an online marketer, transcripts or subtitles have a very important role to play from SEO point of view as well. Needless to say that a subtitle can only be useful when it is accurate, else all your effort despite your noble intention is bound to fail.

Why is accuracy important?

Accurate transcription is often the first step to an impeccable subtitling, because the transcripts are used for creating and synchronising the captions. According to FCC, “Captions must match the spoken words in the dialogue, in their original language (English or Spanish), to the fullest extent possible.” Correctness of a transcript does not only refer to its grammar, spelling, and punctuation, but also includes non-speech sounds such as a music playing, an off-screen whistle if that is important to the plot, people clapping, and the likes. In fact, the FCC’s new caption quality standards make it essential to capture non-speech sounds.

Transcription service Vs. automatic speech recognition

When you upload a video on YouTube, you can use their automatic captioning function to add subtitles to your video. While this might look like the best solution as far as cost is considered, sadly, that is not the case. These kinds of programs come with questionable accuracy levels, which apart from causing you embarrassment, might also be detrimental to the SEO strategy of your video. In fact, Google can even mark your website as ‘pure spam’, a term it uses to define a “site that appears to use aggressive spam techniques such as automatically generated gibberish” among many other things. Since reports say that a transcript is only 60 to 70 percent correct when using an automatic speech recognition technique, your captions will have 1 in every 3 words wrong, and might appear as gibberish to Google.

Hiring the best transcription service is beneficial at many levels. If you are looking for one, look no further than Scribie. With years of experience and a team of experts, we offer a quality that makes us proud and our customers happy. Start uploading your files today!
