Do you frequently record meetings, interviews or discussions, but the quality of your transcriptions leaves something to be desired?
Don’t worry! In this article, we will show you how to improve the quality of your transcriptions in a few simple steps!
Ensure the quality of the recording
In order to make a quality transcription, you need to ensure that your recording is audible enough to be transcribed.
Indeed, an audio into text will be a more feasible transformation if all the audio elements are perceptible without difficulty.
So, before you record, make sure you have the necessary equipment such as a microphone to record your audio.
You are about to start transcribing your file, but wait a little longer!
There are some useful elements related to your file that can help you transcribe, especially if you did not participate in the recording.
To do this, collect information on the list and number of speakers with their first and last names and their functions.
You can also make a list of the questions asked, especially if it is a transcript of an interview.
Also take note of any writing recommendations that someone connected with the recording has given you.
Using Google Docs voice input
As an alternative to the voice solution offered by Word, Google Docs can be useful.
Beware, however, that the software is not powerful enough to provide a good transcription. It will be sufficient for the main lines of your audio or video file, but it will not be suitable for important documents that require a particularly faithful transcription of the audio.
Using an online transcription service
