High-quality transcripts could increase your viewership and discoverability across multiple platforms. Manually transcribing your video and audio content is loaded with inefficiencies. The most effective way to get a final transcript is to process the video or audio file through an automated solution like Maestra.

Even with automated transcription tools at your disposal, how can you automatically transcribe text? What are the steps? Are human transcription services worth the money?

Read on for the answers!

Use an AI Transcription Tool to Automatically Transcribe Text

Manually processing an audio-to-text transcript takes time and attention to detail. You must play the video and pause it at the segments where you wish to extract text. As you pause the video, you must type the corresponding dialogue into a text document while noting speaker names or relevant details. If you miss any part or need text verification, you have to rewind the video and replay the segment.

While manual transcription gives you complete control over your audio transcriptions, it also takes you away from other tasks. Plus, you might make typos, especially if you have to transcribe a large volume of content. Hiring a transcription service is an option, albeit costly for high-quality results. If you go this route, you have to trust a human transcriber. You also have to wait for them to complete the transcription.

Using an AI transcription tool to transcribe your audio recordings is time and cost-effective as well as accurate. Many content creators rely on automatic transcription software to deliver text documents they can immediately use.

Before we go further, let’s briefly look at what AI-driven automatic transcription is. Imagine the tool as an intelligent listener that breaks down sounds into understandable parts, guesses the right words by using its language knowledge, and considers the situation to make sense of the context. Its programming allows it to correct grammar and spelling and even note when each part was spoken. If different people are talking, the AI can attempt to differentiate their voices, making the transcript clearer and more organized. In essence, this technology listens, understands, learns, and refines spoken words into written text.

Transcribe Audio Files with an Automatic Transcription Generator

Audio content like podcasts and recorded interviews can be transcribed for the hearing-impaired to enjoy or transformed into blog posts. Automatic transcription generators quickly and precisely convert audio to text. You can do more in less time.

For instance, you just finished recording your latest podcast episode. You want to publish it as soon as possible, but you also want to reach those who don’t like podcasts. They might prefer to read an article. Running the audio file through an audio-to-text converter gives you a viable text document to post on your blog and social media pages. You don’t have to transcribe audio to text yourself. Avoid the struggle of typos and listening to the same dialogue repeatedly.

Transcribe Video Files with an Automatic Transcription Generator

Video marketing has grown in leaps and bounds with no signs of stopping. Videos engage audiences better than static text and images. However, some people prefer to be entertained and educated with traditional text. Others have no choice; they require captions to enjoy video content. Video transcriptions can fulfill many audiences’ needs.

Automatic transcription generators that process video just as well as audio can give users text they can use across blogs and social media sites. These transcriptions can also be used to create captions and subtitles.

If your company does not add subtitles to your video content, then hearing-impaired audiences (potential customers) might ignore your marketing. Including them could generate more brand awareness and revenue. Excluding them could waste your marketing spend and alienate consumers.
