More businesses than ever are utilizing audio and visual media in order to educate their staff, advertise to the public, or record their business meetings. These movements into introducing technology within the workplace help grow their business on their own. However, transcription can create a more accessible, and farther reaching net than most media mediums would attain without it.
By using a transcription service you know you’re having all material transcribed correctly to an acceptable percentage threshold. They are also able to complete the transcription within a more timely manner than an untrained individual. Transcription services may also offer the ability to transcribe materials into both languages. Or you may be providing content to the public about your business.
The experts of Espresso Translation stress the importance of accurate translation when capturing international audiences. In some countries like Canada, having a French transcription is necessary as it’s one of the official languages.
Having an untrained person attempt to transcribe video or audio files is not cost-effective and can lead to excess labor hours paid. By using a contracted transcription service, you’re saving the added expense of training individual staff members. You’re also able to process more audio/visual media at once, then you may otherwise be able to do it on your own.
Your Business Is Accessible To The Hearing Impaired
For those who experience hearing impairments, transcription services allow them to review business materials in a more efficacious way. If they were unable to hear something during a meeting, they can quickly overview the transcribed material. This also translates to businesses who have training videos. The hearing impaired can readily review the material and incorporate it into their practice within the workplace. This allows for a culture of inclusivity and acceptance, and allowing individuals to perform their jobs to the best of their ability regardless of condition.
Adheres To Preferences of Content
Some individuals who may watch training videos are visual learners, and the portrayed media is beneficial to them. On the other hand, some people incorporate knowledge more readily if it’s read. By having an audio file transcribed, this can help staff learn the material better. If you are a business providing content to the public, they may prefer to read along with the audio as well. It’s best to cover all of your bases in regards to content.
Record All Business Meetings
While recording minutes during business meetings is beneficial, it can lead to some inaccuracy. Most businesses don’t have a private stenographer in their meetings to record all of the conversations verbatim. Having business meetings, audio recorded helps ensure accuracy when recalling the events of a previous meeting. A transcription service is a non-biased third party who’s trained to record the events accurately.
Transcription services help initiate more inclusive methods of learning, work culture, and reach a farther audience for businesses. It can also ensure accuracy during business meetings, and avoid any confusions than minutes alone can’t avoid. If you are a business looking for the next step in growth, incorporating transcription in your means of communication is a cost-effect approach.
