How Can our Audio and Video to Text Transcription Benefit You?

Audio transcription to text files: double your effectiveness
Audio transcription to text files: double your effectiveness

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.

Reasons for transcribing audio files
Reasons for transcribing audio files

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.

How transcribing audio files can help you get organized
How transcribing audio files can help you get organized

You're probably wondering converting audio files to text would help you get organized. Aren't we all striving for a paperless office? Wouldn't turning paper files into audio files make more sense?

Hear us out. First, a text file doesn't have to mean paper. You can turn your recordings into digital documents that are easy to store and retrieve on any device.

Now, think about all the things you scramble to make note of or write down during the day. Imagine recording them and having the recordings transcribed into text.

Think about all the different types of audio files you could feasibly generate in your day-to-day life.
Types of school and business audio for transcription to text:

  • Podcasts
  • Interviews
  • Lectures
  • Training sessions
  • Webinars
  • Conferences
  • Seminars
  • Guided meditations
  • Dictations
  • Medical reports

  • Eulogies

We're sure this list will get you thinking about many more ways to take advantage of audio to text transcription services.

What to do with text transcribed from audio
What to do with text transcribed from audio

Not sure what you'd do with a paper or digital file created from your audio file? A text document can quickly be turned into a:

  • Blog post
  • Magazine article or journal article
  • Book
  • Legal document (depending on your situation; this is not legal advice)
  • Scrapbook memory
  • Sheet of song lyrics

We at GoTranscript completely understand the importance of accuracy in transcription. That's why we always aim for 99% accuracy. This percentage holds true across the board, from simple content to complex medical transcription services.

We start by hiring only the best. We then employ a system of reviews and checks to ensure quality and accuracy. Our staff have no less than 5 years of transcribing experience, so you can be sure your audio files are transcribed with great care and attention to detail.
All of our translators/transcribers sign a Confidentiality Agreement. We respect our clients privacy; therefore, we give clients the option to personally remove completed transcriptions from our database. The data is completely removed from the computers of our translators/transcribers as well.
Yes. For the moment, the available languages are: English, Albanian, Arabic, Azerbaijani, Bengali, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, Georgian, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Kurdish, Kyrgyz, Latvian, Lithuanian, Luxembourgish, Macedonian, Malay, Maltese, Nepali, Norwegian, Persian (Dari), Persian (Farsi), Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Shona, Slovak, Slovenian, Somali, Spanish, Swahili, Swedish, Tajik, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, Urdu, Uzbek, Vietnamese.
Never. Speech-to-text programs can't achieve the quality our professional transcriptionists can.
The majority of our transcriptionists are based in the United Kingdom or United States and are native English speakers.
Yes. We love our customers! To show our appreciation for your patronage, we offer a Customer Loyalty Program. It's our way of thanking you. You can get the lowest prices around and enjoy special discounts just by continuing to use our services.
For our loyal customers, the price per audio minute can be as low as $0.77.
5% OFF for 2500+ uploaded minutes*
10% OFF for 5250+ uploaded minutes*
15% OFF for 10000+ uploaded minutes*
*Uploaded minutes calculated for all orders.
Low-quality audio has one or more of the following:
• Speakers talking over each other
• Interruptions
• Background noise
• A low-quality microphone
• A microphone that's far from the speaker(s)
We add $0.20 a minute for these more complex transcriptions and assign them to our more experienced Pro Transcribers to guarantee quality results.
Also, most of our English-language transcribers are based in the U.S. and U.K. An ESL speaker can be hard to decipher, as can even a thick Australian or South African accent. Please use this Pro Transcriber option for:
• Speaker(s) with a heavy accent
• Two or more different accents
Please be sure to click the 'Yes' radio button next to the 'Low-quality audio / Heavy accent' option on your order form. Choosing this option ahead of time ensures that you receive your completed file as quickly as possible.
It's the process of turning recorded audio into text. A transcriber listens to a recording or an audio track from a video and turns it into a formatted text document. The transcription is produced in the same language as the recording and stays true to the recorded speech and sound events. While stutters and false starts are omitted (except in full verbatim transcription), we do not summarize, paraphrase, or correct any grammar errors the speakers make.
We're unable to retrieve files if a website requires a password, a manual download, or other types of human interaction with the host. You can submit YouTube, Dropbox, Google Drive, and Vimeo links. You can use other services as long as the URL leads to the file itself. If you're not sure if the URL leads directly to your file, all you need to do is try it out. Click the PASTE URL button, copy your link, and click ADD. If our system can't fetch your file, you'll get a notification.
Not by default. GoTranscript accepts a wide range of audio and video formats. We transcode those files to MP3 before our transcriptionists start working on them. They handle the audio portion of your material, but you can leave a note or get in touch with us if you need the video content transcribed.
The most significant influence on turnaround time is the audio quality of your recording. In most cases, challenging audio takes more time to transcribe. Things like heavy accents, lots of background noise, and highly technical content that requires lots of research usually take longer to transcribe than clear audio. Length of the recording also plays a factor here, and long files generally take more time.
The quality of your recording directly impacts the final transcript quality. For high-quality transcripts, clear audio with adequate volume and minimum background noise is a must. Here are a few simple tips you can follow to make sure your audio recording quality is top-notch!
