Webinars are Here to Stay: How to Best Get Webinar Transcripts? Part 2

As we have covered in part 1 of Webinars are Here to Stay: How to Best Get Webinar Transcripts?, the pandemic of COVID 19 made webinars even more prominent and valuable than ever before. This format brings immense personal and organizational value worldwide. However, the share numbers of such events, online calls, and other screen-based activities make many of us feel exhausted from our computers and smartphones.    

To counter a large number of exciting screen-based content, we propose the use of webinar transcriptions that hit multiple birds with one stone. Webinar transcripts make the content more accessible, convenient and leveraged in optimizing SEO.

If you missed the first three steps on making a suitable webinar transcript, check out part 1, where we have covered the preparations, the recording of the webinar, and the file upload to GoTranscript’s accurate and fast transcription service.

4. Optional Services

Once one has uploaded the selected file or file link to GoTranscript, they have a set of options for additional services. The options cover the style of formatting of the webinar transcription. Some of the leading examples of the possibilities are verbatim styles and timestamping. Verbatim styles cover the option of including various sounds made by the speaker in the transcript. Some of the examples of what may be included are stammers or filler words, or sounds. Timestamping, meanwhile, consists of the hours, minutes, and seconds that have passed as the recording progresses. This is extremely helpful in doing a translation or for captioning! No need for additional features as you care only about the speed. We have an option for fast transcription service at GoTranscript!

5. Payment

The last step is payment. After making the payment, the transcription will be done and sent in a few days, if not quicker, depending on the optional service selection. Usually, we send the transcript via email. It enables the client to share the email with the relevant stakeholders or download the file and use it as necessary.

The bottom line, one can have multiple values from a good webinar transcript. As we have covered in part 1, transcriptions allow the structure of the content and make it easy to access for those who have attended the event and those who happened to miss it. Transcripts will enable us to use the same info in multiple media besides a video embed. Finally, publishing a transcript allows for the webinar to be easier to find via Google.
