One should not underestimate how long it takes to deliver a transcription. It takes around 4 hours to transcribe, edit and format a 40 mins long sermon transcript. On top of that, such efficiency is reached with the proper equipment, such as a foot pedal and shorthand software.

Yet another Winter session under the threat of COVID may take many of us apart. Some families won't meet together for public health safety reasons, and religious and community services might be canceled or organized online. 

The challenges of this winter should be no match for our collective wish to experience community and have spiritual needs met. In this blog entry, we share some ideas on making community, religious, or family events safe and focusing on the best emotion and experience possible within the pandemic restrictions. 

For some remarkable experience, many things have to be done: 

  • Draft an inspiring sermon or speech

  • Prepare the scene for filming

  • Do the filming and ensure crisp audio quality

  • Edit if needed 

  • Look for professional transcription services to make the video accessible to hearing-impaired both young and old 

Nothing is as essential as addressing everyone. Winter holidays are the ultimate time for inclusiveness. Therefore, whenever you prepare the pre-filmed and shared content, one should always consider transcription for multiple reasons. 

The first reason is inclusivity. Address as many people as possible by adding closed-captioning to the video. Nothing is more positive and lovely now than to leave nobody behind. Make these holidays count for everyone. 

The second reason is the transcript itself for future reference and further circulation if the thoughts shared in the video are timeless. People appreciate reading them repeatedly and getting some inspiration from them, quoting it, and saving them in their archives. 

Transcription, especially of important, spiritual content, is difficult. One should not underestimate how long it takes to deliver a transcription. It takes around 4 hours to transcribe, edit and format a 40 mins long sermon transcript. On top of that, such efficiency is reached with the proper equipment, such as a foot pedal and shorthand software. We always strongly recommend relying on professional transcription services.

Make it a gift and let people read the critical words at their own pace, create notes for later reference, and share parts of it with family and friends.
