Who Needs Transcription?
Journalism & Media
The very existence of the journalism industry rests upon competent communication. Journalists’ work is founded upon research and requires the right information to be obtained in the right place, at the right time. It is common practice for journalists to achieve this using audio and video recording devices to capture this information to revisit at a later date. Transcription of these files enables the audio to be processed and disseminated as text, making it more accessible to the journalist and audience alike.
Similarly to journalists, legal professionals are regularly required to obtain information quickly and accurately. Furthermore, those operating in the legal industry have no room for error and accuracy is paramount. Transcription offers solicitors, paralegals and other legal professionals the advantage of revisiting first-hand research with no effort to recall information from memory. It is a common practice within the industry from interviews, hearings and evidence, transcription into any language is a tool solicitors shouldn’t be without.
Video & Creative
Professionals in creative industries will be well acquainted with transcription services where they support scripting and subtitles in any video production. From Netflix and YouTube to Facebook Ads and LinkedIn Learning, audio and video footage can be enhanced simply back adding subtitles and for marketing purposes, transcription can benefit SEO and SEM work.
Lecturers, students, academics and even marketers all share a common goal: research. Teaching in today’s society has become digitalised and commonly accessible online. Institutions should promote inclusivity and break down barrier to accessibility by offering lessons with subtitles and interpreters. Students and marketers also use qualitative methods like interviews to gather data and presentations to share findings, all of which can be enhanced from audio transcription services to gather, process, and present research findings.
