Audio Transcription for Blogging
We all know that blogging is an important part of an online marketing strategy but writing regular posts can take up a lot of time, especially if you’re not a natural typist. But if you feel that you don’t have time you can still dictate the text and we’ll transcribe it for you. This means that you won’t have to sit in front of a keyboard writing that post and creating your content becomes much easier and time-efficient.
Transcripts of your video blogs to help your SEO
It’s true that posting video blogs on your site is great – people love video – but have you thought about when people can’t access video, for whatever reason? Having a transcript of your video blog is not only great for users, giving them a choice of how to access your content, but it’s also brilliant for your SEO! A short video of around three minutes will only take us about ten to transcribe and is very cost effective. So why not contact us to find out more?
Tips on providing good quality audio files for transcription
If your audio files are poor quality, you are less likely to get good quality transcripts – you know what they say, rubbish in, rubbish out!
So it’s important to create audio files that are as good quality as possible. Here are a few tips:
Avoid background noise
Choose your setting carefully, a quiet meeting room is a must. Eliminate background noise as much as possible. Try and choose a setting that is away from noise disturbance that may come from adjacent offices or outside.
For interviews and meetings, ask participants to introduce themselves at the start. That way your transcriber will have a fighting chance of knowing who’s speaking.
Talking over each other
If participants are interrupting each other, words can get lost. Make it clear from the start of multi participant meetings that only one person talks at a time.
Make sure the mic is not placed too far away and it is equidistant between participants. Ask people to speak clearly and loudly enough. Test your recording equipment at the start of the meeting.
Use good recording software
You can record directly from a phone or PC but if you record files regularly, professional digital recording devices will be a good investment. There are several audio recording options available on the market. Look for systems that offer noise reduction, audio pitch adjustment and editing functions. Software can also compress the final recordings without impacting quality. This will make it easier for your transcriber to download too.
