Choosing The Best Video Transcription Services

What is Video Transcription? Transcription refers to the recording of spoken words in written text. When this process is applied to video content the process is called video transcription. Since the benefits of transcribing video content are getting recognition by businesses worldwide, numerous agencies offer video transcription services. However, one should be wary, cool, calm, and collected when they choose such professional transcription services.

This article will serve as a guide in the quest for choosing the best transcription service. Here are some criteria that need to be fulfilled for a video transcription service to be called the “best”:

  1. Accuracy: Heavy accents, multiple speakers, and poor quality audio provide hindrances in getting an accurate transcription. However, transcription services that promise accuracy even in extreme “test” conditions should be selected to get the transcriptions done.

  2. Transcription method: Automated transcription is cheap. However, the accuracy for most automatic speech recognition (ASR) lies in the range of 70-80% - rendering the transcript unusable (invariably costing more). However, the accuracy of transcripts created through human-based service lies in the upper limit of the 90s. If accuracy is the target, choose human-based transcription.

  3. Editing the transcript: Best video transcription services should allow for seamless editing of the transcript before the export of the final document. Choose those audio video transcription services which provides an interface for easy editing, and providing that much final touch for an accurate transcript. Easily selectable playback speeds and rewind buttons are also fairly standard in this regard.
