TRANSCRIBE AN AUDIO OR VIDEO – SOME TYPICAL CHALLENGES
The Managing Director has also required a summary of the important points mentioned and you weren’t able to take notes during the meeting because the projector gave in and you had to sort out the tea for everyone – so what to do? Maybe transcribing the audio yourself when you are already working a 10 hour day in order to make that deadline?
With no experience of transcribing, you realise to transcribe the audio might actually be harder than expected. You had difficulty understanding the Marketing Executive from Wales and the HR Manager from France seemed to mumble somewhat. Fabio from the Creative Team in Italy also spoke slightly faster than expected and thought it would be okay to reference Italian terms and intermix them with English, so you weren’t always understanding what the gist of his points was.
The MD calls you a second time asking for the notes as he would like to forward them to the Sales Department and just can’t understand why it is taking you so long to provide the notes as the meeting was only one hour-long. He ends the discussion by demanding that he would now like you to transcribe the entire audio and get it back to him by tomorrow afternoon (that way nothing will be missed, you see). A colleague then mentions that, to her knowledge, her former flatmate who used to transcribe on the side would take about an hour to transcribe 5 minutes alone!
TRANSCRIBING AUDIO OR VIDEO – A SOLUTION!
As a proactive solution-oriented person and career go-getter, you realise that you need to find help in order to impress the boss and find it soon! A quick Google search for companies who are able to transcribe various accents (and who take the job seriously) delivers good results. A quick quote, the luxury of uploading the audio from your desk at work or your mobile and the knowledge that the transcription company will transcribe the file into a convenient Word format and email it to you as soon as completed (to the deadline that you selected) are absolute bonuses.
A day later, the MD calls to thank you for the fantastic transcription and for your great organisation skills as the meeting ‘went well’. Putting down the receiver your enthusiasm for your job returns and you realise that you can now look forward to that rerun of Bridget Jones tonight. Once again, all is well with the world.
