Mumbai, India (PressExposure) July 26, 2011 -- A transcription service is a business that converts live or recorded speech into written or electronic text document. But the most common form of transcription is that of a spoken-language into text. Proceedings of a court hearing such as a criminal trial by a court reporter or a physician's recorded voice notes called medical transcriptions are the best examples for the same.
Transcription services are generally provided for business, legal, medical and academic purposes. Some such services can send their staff to the events, speeches or seminars to do an on-the-spot shorthand transcription. While, some accept recorded speech on a cassette, CD, VHS or as sound files via internet.
Different organizations have different ways of charging. Some charge per line, some per word, some per minute and some per hour. This trend varies from company to company and industry to industry.
Transcription is one of the largest growing legitimate jobs in the US. Earlier, this job was considered very difficult as they needed people with advanced skills in shorthand to write down the speech as they heard it. Besides, those people had to physically be present at the locations where the service was required. But the introduction of tape cassettes and portable recorders in the late 1970s offered new opportunities and made the work easier.
An mp3 based Dictaphone makes it possible to record sound. Those sound files can then be uploaded on computers and be transferred online. Thus, transcriptionists have a whole new widened horizon to look at. They can work from home at their own convenience and their work has become more accurate as the files can be replayed, rewinded and forwarded as per their needs. The only concern is the deadline being met.
It keeps getting better as the technology goes on evolving. The sound files can be filtered, equalized and have their tempo adjusted to suit the transcriptionist when the clarity is poor. As a result of it all, the standard time for transcribing in the industry has molten down to merely an hour for a fifteen minutes long audio.
There are basically two types of transcription: a) dictation typing of correspondence and b) reports and interview transcription. Dictation typing has one speaker where an interview has two or more speakers.
