Reach a Global Audience by Transcribing Video Files

Transcribing videos can be beneficial in a variety of platforms we use every day. For example, transcribing Youtube videos can invite more viewers to consume your content. This is because many users consume content on mute by reading the video transcript. So, you can help hearing-impaired viewers by transcribing and subtitling Youtube videos.

This particular benefit of transcribing also applies to Snapchat, Facebook, and TikTok videos. Everyone at one point during their day has to watch videos on mute and for them, videos without transcripts are unconsumable. Therefore, simply converting video to text and putting the transcript of the video as a description or subtitles can drastically increase the number of viewers a content creator can get.
