What does a transcription service do?

What does a transcription service do? You’ve come to the right place.

What exactly is a transcription service?

A transcription service is a business which provides clients with documents made from interviews,  speeches, meetings and dictation.  Transcription services – used in finance, technology, marketing,  manufacturing, government, health and law, as well as the arts and nonprofit sectors, are services which transcribe audio information into typewritten documents.  The audio source may be live speech, or (more commonly) speech recorded into any number of formats (including MP3, MPEG, WMA, DVD, magnetic tape, MOV, etcetera).  A transcriptionist listens to and types the audio speech, creating a document which can be emailed, edited, shared, indexed, cross-referenced and searched.  Transcriptionists need to be familiar with the particular vocabulary and word usage of their clients’ businesses or fields.  Transcription services must transcribe with precision, accuracy, and frequently with great speed.  They also provide editing services, so that clients receive a clean, correct and complete document.

Who uses transcription services?

Transcription is an essential aid for doctors, attorneys, and many companies who need to share, index, and access information initially presented in a spoken form.  Transcription is also indispensable in television and film production, journalism, and many academic fields.  When audio and video content are converted to text, the information becomes searchable.  Searchable information is more useful, accessible and visible.
