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.

Part 2:  Clarity is temporary

People loved to hear him talk.Feynman_2553738b

Physicist Richard Feynman was famous for his storytelling, his jokes, and his timing. (Oh yeah, and a little thing called quantum electrodynamics.)

His lectures on the mind-bending principles of physics were unusually illuminating.  So why transcribe them?  In a transcript from an interview published in Feynman’s Tips on Physics, his colleague Robert Leighton describes it like this:

“Feynman has a peculiar property, which is that at the time he’s explaining something, it appears very clear and transparent–you can see how everything fits, and you go away feeling very good about it…about two hours later…it’s all gone and you’re hungry again.”

Leighton says listening to Feynman on a topic was like “bringing the thing out into reality only for a limited time, and then watching it sink back into the sea!”

As the interviewer Heidi Aspaturian puts it, the taped and transcribed lectures were a way “to get him out of the vacuum permanently.”

Sometimes a transcript of a talk or lecture can bring the best from both worlds – the spiritedness of transient speech, and the clarity and permanence of writing.  Yes, in transcription, language exhibits the qualities of both a particle and a wave!

Tune in next time to see how Feynman’s lectures became of The Feynman Lectures!

Part 1:  Richard Feynman and the gift of gabThe Feynman Lectures

Did you know that one of the most popular physics books in the world is based on audio to text transcripts?

The Feynman Lectures on Physics was written from tape recordings of dynamic lectures to eager young students at Caltech in the early sixties.

World-renowned physicist Richard Feynman’s gift for intuitive explanations is legendary – you now hear phrases like “the Feynman of drumming” or “the Feynman of math” used to describe great explainers within and across their fields of expertise.

As one reviewer, James Gleick, put it in the New York Times:  “Feynman did not write, he talked.  Even his scientific texts began with the spoken word of the storyteller – they were always collaborations, created through the midwifery of friends with tape recorders.”

Sometimes natural speech is the best way to capture and communicate complex ideas. Liveliness and logic flow easily when someone sets out to communicate face-to-face.  That’s why so many academics, religious institutions, teachers, corporate presenters, and lecturers and writers of all kinds, can make such good use of transcription services.

But if the lectures were luminous, why transcribe them?  Find out in Part 2: Clarity is temporary!

Video Transcription Services for Interviews in Documentary Television and Film

Who said exactly what, and when

Are you interviewing experts in their fields, and don’t want to miss a word they say?

Interviews for feature length documentaries, reality television, podcasts and radio features require detailed transcripts – written documents that show who said exactly what, and when. That means a verbatim transcript (including pauses, ums, laughter, everything) that is timecoded. A quality video to text transcript might be one of your most essential tools. Here are a few of its myriad uses:

When you have a timecoded transcript in hand, you can make a cut-and-paste script and easily see the structure of your piece.
A transcript also helps you make sure you are not misrepresenting a part of an interview through editing – you can easily go back and see the context of the clip you are using.
A transcript makes fact checking easy and systematic.
Final scripts: many distributors will require a complete transcript of any film they are interested in distributing.

Tigerfish offers transcription services for all audio and video media – we have worked with producers of Hollywood feature films, large and small budget documentary filmmakers, broadcast journalists, and more. We work with interviews, commentary, narration, and final scripts.

We are masters of timecoding and will provide you with a transcript specifically formatted for your needs.

If you need the best transcribing services for your video, audio or film interview project, call Tigerfish. We are the experts in transcription.

How a Quality Transcription Service Can Help Your Organization Innovate

Part 3: Just saying? The Proof is in the Pudding

How about Transcribing? Audio to text tells a different story.

Okay, this is a personal story about how transcripts can help.

We had a meeting about this blog – a few of us in a quiet room snacking on cashews and coming up with some helpful topics for our clients and potential clients. I took careful notes.

Well, I do work for a transcribing company, specializing in audio to text transcription services with super-fast rush turnaround, and someone said why don’t we record the meeting, transcribe the audio, and make a document we can share. Why not? So we recorded it on an Apple iPad, and uploaded the file via Google Drive.

Well, honestly I thought I didn’t need to read the transcript because I had my notes. But guess what? When I read the transcript (which was verbatim and included all the “likes” that are necessary to come up with really good ideas) there were lots of ideas that did not make it into my notes, spins on things that didn’t make it to my “list,” and little leads that now I’m going to follow up on. I’m not joking! I’m not just advertising! This was a pretty casual meeting and not high stakes, but the transcript really made a difference, cashews and all. Just saying.

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.
