Transcription speech recognition, believe it or not, has been around since the 1980s.

And during that time, thanks to AI like Siri, Alexa, Google Assistant, IBM’s Watson and so on, it has improved by leaps and bounds in recognizing human speech.  Does transcription speech recognition software exist that can effectively replace humans in the transcription of dictations, one-on-one and multiple speaker interviews, seminars and teleconferences?

Best Transcription Speech Recognition Software 2019

DISCLAIMER:  At the time of writing all the software listed below are good for transcribing slow paced, American accent dictation recordings by a single speaker.  They work best when there is no background noise and you’re talking close to the microphone.  They struggle when there’s more than one speaker, background noise or music, or overlapping conversation.

6 Cool Ways Pastors can use Sermon Transcripts to Help More People

2018-12-24T12:53:17+00:00December 24th, 2018|Audio Transcription, Transcription Service|0 Comments

Sermon transcripts are a great way to create content for digital marketing, social media and to keep accurate records, whether you’re a sermon orator or a listener.

What is a Sermon?

If you are new to this, “A sermon is an oration, lecture, or talk by a preacher usually a member of a religious institution or clergy.”

Sermons have been an integral part of life for many Christians growing up.  Even if you didn’t like waking up at 7 am on a Sunday (I didn’t!) to go to church, sleepwalked to the car and slowly gained full awareness as the service started.  Your first thought was “How did we get here this fast?  Was I sleeping the whole way?” 

But once the sermon started, whichever part of the Bible it was based on, you could always find something to relate to.  Whether it was your personal or professional life.

Verbatim Transcription in Qualitative Research

2018-12-19T19:15:27+00:00December 18th, 2018|Audio Transcription, Transcription Service|0 Comments

“And would you like non-verbatim or verbatim transcription” is one of the questions we ask every client during the quoting stage to eliminate any formatting related confusion later on.

Unfortunately, a lot of clients don’t understand what verbatim transcription is, or how it differs from non-verbatim and edited transcripts.

If you’ve landed on this page hoping to understand more on this topic, we hope this post will be helpful.

What is Verbatim Transcription?

While there are plenty of voice recognition software and services on the internet, unfortunately there is no verbatim transcription software…..yet.

It’s still done best by humans.  We’ll explain why. 

In simple terms, verbatim transcription is where you type every single word/sound uttered by every speaker in an audio recording.  Which includes all kinds of non-verbal nods like “um, uh, mm hmm” and filler words like “like, you know, kind of” […]

YouTube Video Transcription | 5 Ways to Gain More Subscribers

2018-12-02T13:11:59+00:00December 1st, 2018|Audio Transcription, Transcription Service, Video subtitling services|0 Comments

Youtube video transcription is a fairly lesser known trick to gain youtube subscribers fast.  And gaining new subscribers is probably the mission that occupies the biggest real estate in every Youtuber’s mind.  And for good reason.

If you want to be successful on YouTube, first you need to create quality content, more often.  And second, you need to have lots of people consuming and enjoying that content, so that you have repeat visitors and possible subscribers.

Easier said than done.

If you’ve got the talent to make entertaining videos, and are naturally good in front of the camera, half the battle is won.  This post will help you with actionable steps you can take to grow your Youtube subscriber base with the help of youtube video transcription.

5 Ways to Save Time and Money with Academic Transcription

2018-11-28T18:28:04+00:00November 27th, 2018|Audio Transcription, Transcription Service|0 Comments

Academic Transcription

As the name suggests, academic transcription relates to academia.  It can be related to, or include audio transcription of any of the following:

  • Graduate/Postgraduate Thesis
  • Research Interviews
  • Dissertations
  • Focus Group Discussions
  • Lectures and Seminars (Schools, Colleges, Universities)
  • Keynote Speaking Presentations
  • Technical Presentations from IT Companies like IBM, Microsoft etc.

Academic transcription may also be called thesis or dissertation transcription.  According to Wikipedia, “A thesis or dissertation is a document submitted in support of candidature for an academic degree or professional qualification presenting the author’s research and findings.”

For our team at Scriptosphere, compared to other forms of audio transcription, I’d say academic transcription is probably the most interesting for a couple of reasons:

  • Every research or thesis is on an entirely new subject
  • There’s always something new to learn
  • Most of the topics revolve around solving real issues
  • Majority of the […]

Seminar Transcription

Seminar Transcription – How can it Help?

Is it worth spending money on?

Before we delve into seminar transcription, according to Wikipedia, “A seminar is a form of academic instruction, either at an academic institution or offered by a commercial or professional organization. 

It has the function of bringing together small groups for recurring meetings, focusing each time on some particular subject, in which everyone present is requested to participate.  This is often accomplished through an ongoing Socratic dialogue with a seminar leader or instructor, or through a more formal presentation of research. 

It is essentially a place where assigned readings are discussed, questions can be raised and debates can be conducted.”

Seminar transcription has existed since seminars first became prevalent.  No longer do you have to miss out on an important lecture because you had […]

What is Podcast Transcription?

Before we get into podcast transcription, let’s first address what podcasts are.  They sound like a spaceship, but they’re not.  Wikipedia says a podcast is a form of digital media that consists of an episodic series of audio, video, digital radio, PDF, or ePub files, subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication or streamed online to a computer or mobile device. The word is a portmanteau of “(i)Pod” and “broadcast.” The Merriam Webster Tenth International Collegiate defines “podcast” as: a program (as of music or talk) made available in digital format for automatic download over the Internet.

In simple language, it basically means a radio show you can download.
