Why Transcription Matters
Transcription is the process of converting audio or video into a written or digital format. It is a valuable tool for researchers, marketers, and businesses alike as it allows them to capture and analyze conversations, media, and other audio-visual material in a way that is easily understood and presented.
Benefits of Transcription
Transcription can be used to capture interviews, lectures, and other audio recordings for later review and analysis. It can also be used to create subtitles for videos, for example, to make them more accessible to people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Additionally, transcription can be used to create searchable databases of audio or video material, making it easier to find specific segments or topics.
