Transcription Service vs Voice Recognition Software – Which is better?
Ever since voice recognition transcription software became viable, this topic comes up from time to time. Which is better? Human or software? Sarah Connor or T-1000? Getting your recordings transcribed by a professional transcription service or buying a voice recognition software? We have had our fair share of experience with voice recognition software. Why wouldn’t we? If we can save money on hiring transcribers, good for us! But our experience has been less than satisfactory. Unless the speaker talks really slow, enunciates each word clearly, and there is no background disturbance whatsoever, all voice recognition software struggle to discern sentences — forget sentences, they even get words wrong.
