There are many benefits to using speech-to-text software to convert your video files into text.
From accessibility to increased on-page time, transcribing your video can do wonders for both personal and business use cases.
Here are some of the top reasons to transcribe your video to text:
With an increased focus on web accessibility standards and making all websites more accessible, it’s good to focus on improving accessibility of the media you host on your site.
WCAG, ACA and other standards recommend that you provide a link to a transcript on any audio or video file page on your site. Best practice however, would be to paste the full transcript on your page.
You can also generate captions and subtitles that can be added to your audio or video files which makes your content more accessible for individuals with hearing impairments or even non-native language speakers.
Nothing makes marketers, podcasters and site owners happier than a nice little SEO boost. And what’s the best way to get that SEO boost? By making your user (and Google) happy.
Including keyword and context rich transcripts on a webpage is a great way to serve user intent which contributes to increasing page ranking factors related to good user experience.
Not only will you start ranking for more keywords, but the inclusion of a transcript also allows users to read along with your video which is great for user engagement. By creating more context for search engines, there is also a higher chance of your page being shown to more people.
While some people are great at listening or watching something and digesting all that information, there are many more people who benefit from a visual learning approach.
If you find yourself in that latter category, converting useful videos, tutorials and lectures into text can be a great way to improve your learning arsenal.
A transcript gives you a full text solution that you can use for various purposes such as lecture notes, flashcards and Powerpoint presentations to name a few.
If you’re a videographer, filmmaker or editor who spends a ton of time figuring out your video transcription needs, Speak is probably the right system for you.
In addition to being able to transcribe multiple files at once, our system also databases every single file uploaded into your account, which allows you to search for soundbites, quotes or specific topics easily across all your files.
These video transcripts are easily searchable and point you to the specific moment in the media where what you’re looking for is mentioned. The administrative and search related time costs are significantly reduced when using Speak’s seamless automated and human transcription and transcript databasing – so why not give us a try?
