You've got your transcript - now what?

Most automated transcription services are happy to just get you your transcript and send you on your way. But we always want to do more for you. 

We found ourselves asking, "Now what?"

It's great that you have a transcript, but how do you now make that transcript valuable? 

Here are a few tips on how you can go beyond just transcribing your MP3 to text by using Speak Ai:

Analyze your transcript with Natural Language Processing & Sentiment Analysis

Speak comes with built-in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Sentiment Analysis which allows you to get better top level insights from your transcript. 

You can use NLP to identify specific topics, names, brands and even set up custom vocabulary if you're transcribing content with uncommon words. 

NLP is incredible helpful when it comes to quickly skimming through a transcript to find key information and can also inform marketing or content creation efforts by identifying important topics, keywords and brand mentions. 

Sentiment Analysis is often used to get a general sense of the tone used throughout a recording. We currently identify three states - positive, neutral and negative - which allows you to navigate your transcript using tone and sentiment as an analysis point. 

Share your media, transcript and analysis using SEO-friendly media players

Sometimes simply sharing a text transcript is good enough, however at other times you want something more engaging for your viewers. A great way to create more interactive content experiences is with our SEO-friendly media players. 

Generate individual media players for your transcribed file that include the audio clip, a clickable, interactive transcript as well as any insights you choose to display. 

Make your media more meaningful by Including the main topics or keywords. This allows your audience to navigate to moments in the media that matter the most to them. 

This improves on-page engagement as well as guaranteeing that users find the information they are looking for. 

Turn a transcript into blog posts with our WordPress integration

Content creation can be a frustrating process that takes much longer than we'd like. Did you know that transcripts are a quick solution to that? 

If you don't have the time or capacity to create a blog post for every podcast, video or recording you have on your website, the easiest thing to do is just paste your transcript as-is on your website with the relevant media. 

There are many benefits to this including increased on-page time, improved rankings for important keywords and you make sure that you're making your content accessible to a variety of users. 

With Speak you can either do this manually by exporting your transcript in a format that works for you or you can set up an integration with your WordPress site. 

Setting up the integration will allow you to seamlessly post your transcript on your website and edit it as a blog post with just one-click. 

Create captions or subtitles and meet accessibility standards

One of the best ways to improve your audio and video content to meet accessibility standards is to include subtitles and closed captions. 

Not only can you convert your MP3 to text with Speak, but you can then choose to export that text as SRT or VTT files as well. 

These files can be uploaded to YouTube or merged with your media file to create accessible content that can only do wonders for your content's performance.
