Audio files are quick and easy to create and disseminate. Unfortunately, when you need to actually work with them, things can get tricky.
It's difficult to gather the useful info from an audio file. That's why audio to text transcriptions are becoming more and more popular.
For a low fee, you can have both an audio file and a text file to work with.
Audio transcriptions are convenient. It can be frustrating to try to gather specific facts from a recording. You'll have to do a lot of rewinding and fast-forwarding—and you might miss some important chunks of information in the process.
A text file is a lot easier to work with if you need to retrieve information. When you read your content, you're unlikely to miss important details. Even if you do, a quick search command (usually Ctrl+F or Cmnd+F) will take you where you want to go.
Another reason to transcribe your audio is so you can edit your content.
Wait, you're thinking . I've already produced the audio. There's no use in editing it now.
Not so fast! You can often rerecord an audio file if you need to. Even if that isn't feasible, you can review the spoken words and use your edits to improve your next recording.
Maybe you say "uh" or "well" or "like" too often. You may or may not hear this when listening back to your recording. But if you're reading a transcript, certain words may jump out at you.
You can also search for suspect words and count how many times you used them. Then, make a mental or physical note cut back on those words next time you record.
