The Neighborhood

John Coltrane and Thelonious Monk played around the corner. Joe DiMaggio married Marilyn Monroe in the local cathedral. Francis Ford Coppola edited The Godfather on our street. Lenny Bruce performed at the Purple Onion. Allen Ginsberg and Bob Dylan hung out at City Lights Books. Ellen DeGeneres got her start here. Robin Williams works new material a few blocks away. Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Alfred Hitchcock, Jimmy Stewart, Clint Eastwood, and Woody Allen filmed here.

And for over twenty years San Francisco’s North Beach has been home to Tigerfish.

Call us up. There are some people we’d like you to meet.

Part 2:  Get it in writing

Why make a transcript?

Whether you are holding a financial meeting at Chevron, making a documentary film for a small production company, interviewing subjects for your PhD thesis, or brainstorming your next startup, an excellent transcript can take it to the next level.

Why you might want a transcript of your meeting:

  • Topics generated can be commented on and built upon using document sharing
  • Make content of the meeting searchable using keywords
  • Provide a historical record which can be referred to at future meetings
  • Let people know that their thoughts and opinions matter
  • Make it easy to share your ideas with people who are unable to attend
  • Allow those absent to participate in the discussion afterwards via Microsoft Word, Google docs, Dropbox, or other sharing platforms
  • When exact language is vital, you will want a verbatim transcript
  • Transcribing audio to text makes the content useable on the web, where keyword searches are crucial
  • Content generated can be used directly in advertising, outreach, internal memos
  • Transcripts capture content more completely than minutes or notes alone

Part 1: A meeting of the minds

Why record a meeting?

The best ideas sometimes happen in a focused group. Ideas fly, build, zoom, and land. Light bulbs light up over people’s heads. Discussions rev up and travel, arriving somewhere new. But then…sometimes the minutes or notes don’t capture the energy and ideas of the discussion, and some of what was generated is lost in translation.

When you want to build on the content of a lively meeting and take it to the next step, record and transcribe it. Share the recording. Share the transcript. Your next meeting will pick up where you left off and go even further.

Some types of meetings that might be essential to record:

Problem-solving
Brainstorming
When the exact language used is crucial
When topics are complex or involve special terminology
When participants have diverse or opposing interests (for example, in some legal situations) and there may be controversial ‘takes’ on the meeting
When ideas or statements need to be attributed reliably
When some participants cannot be present at the meeting
When the meeting is the first in a series on a topic
When you want to upload content generated to the web

Choosing a transcription company that is experienced in audio to text services for many fields (including legal transcription, focus group transcription and medical transcription) is your best bet for getting a high quality transcript to work with. Add this tool to your toolbox! You might be surprised how helpful it is.

How to Record Audio for Transcription Services

Make the most of your meetings and interviews
with these audio recording tips!

Recording for transcription services

We’ve all watched a video on Youtube where the speaker had something we really wanted to hear, but airplanes kept flying overhead, someone insisted on vacuuming in the background, or the wind kept blowing into the microphone.  Too often it is just not worth the discomfort of trying to listen, and we give up and tune out.

In corporate meetings, focus groups, legal interrogations, research interviews, you may be aiming for an accurate transcript more than a beautiful sound.  But even when you are making a recording for the purposes of a speech to text transcript, the quality of the audio recording is important.

Tigerfish Transcribing is expert at dealing with all kinds of issues that may come up in recording, and delivering a high quality transcript no matter what.  That’s what makes our transcription service the best in the field.

In the worlds of business, law, health care, and even art, accuracy is key.  Accurate voice-to-text transcription will be easier if you follow some simple ground rules when you set up to record.

Some practical tips can save you time or money when making a recording:

  • Choose an appropriate recording device and microphone.  Make yourself familiar with the equipment you are using before you begin. Better equipment will provide better audio and a better transcript.
  • Use at least two independent recording devices.  You’d be surprised how often batteries fail, or someone accidentally forgets to hit “record.”  Another device provides peace of mind.
  • Test the equipment at least two hours before the start of your meeting.  If you detect problems, give us a call — we’d be happy to trouble-shoot with you.
  • If possible, hold your meeting or interview in a quiet environment.  Try to eliminate background or ambient sounds such as fans, air conditioners, office machines, telephones or traffic. Choose a room that is relatively free of echoes and reverberation.  A carpeted floor may help reduce sounds of chairs scraping.
  • Let those around you know you are making a recording, and encourage them to keep quiet.  Avoid unnecessary table sounds, such as eating, tapping a pencil, and the moving of furniture or equipment.
  • (If you must interview someone in a restaurant or other loud space, make sure to have the microphone closest to the person being interviewed.

Have a complex or challenging situation?

Hire a professional to record your meeting!

Tigerfish Transcribing can record your live event on-site.  Our audio technicians can make sure the recording turns out well, take notes for speaker identification, and lay the foundation for the fastest edited transcripts in the world.

Of course, sometimes situations arise where the perfect recording is not possible.  Tigerfish Transcribing is expert at dealing with all kinds of issues that may come up in recording, and delivering a high quality transcript no matter what.  That’s what makes our transcription service the best in the field.

A word about our beautiful new website.

Like most things at Tigerfish, this website is the result of inspiration, hard work, and collaboration.

The initial layout came from Bay Area painter Molly Barker (you can see Molly’s original brush and ink illustrations throughout the site). Molly started things off by cutting up some paper and taping it together to sketch out an idea for the composition.

Even though the scissors and tape aspect of Molly’s sketch was merely a convenient way of working, something about the look captivated our web designer, David Kerr. David was struck by the possibility of constructing a site entirely out of paper.

I felt that the handmade aesthetic conveyed the spirit of what we’re trying to do at Tigerfish: personal attention to detail, real human interaction, a stick-to-it commitment to making things, and making them right.

The three of us worked closely to bring the vision to life. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Take a moment to glance around — I hope you enjoy it.

As far as we can tell, the Tigerfish building was built in 1907 — at any rate shortly after the earthquake. It was owned by the Monaco family, who ran a photography studio, so through their work we have a glimpse of life in San Francisco around that time. Big thanks to the Monaco family for graciously sharing the following photos with us.
