Audio Transcripts

Accurate audio transcripts are challenging despite the continuous advancements of speech technology of today. It may be possible if the person being recorded speaks very slowly, methodically, clearly enunciating every single word, and without a difficult to understand the accent. However, the moment there is background noise in the recording – the clinking of cutlery in a restaurant, a strong gust of wind, a child crying, static through a phone line – or more than one speaker in the recording, this still becomes a challenging situation for quality audio transcripts created through speech to text software.

Audio transcripts are provided by a service whereby a transcriber converts a recording – whether audio or video – into an electronic text document or a transcript (read our hints and tips for recording quality sound or How to convert audio to text).

Some offer certain rates based on the turnaround of the transcript, whether same day, overnight, several days or even weeks.
