Most people consume a lot of content on the internet, mostly the content consumed is in the form of videos. The people love to watch videos as audio is almost gone into oblivion. But the speech in another language requires conversion into the language of choice of say a given person. The videos are closed-captioned which is called transcription. The conversion of speech or audio into the text of a given language script is essentially what we mean by transcription. Moreover, the podcasts or audiobooks could be transcribed so that the consumer can easily read what was there in the audio file while listening to such a file. The text is displayed on a video monitor, or video control or display of some kind.
Transcription comes in handy for those who are deaf and hard of hearing. We provide good quality audio/video transcription in Chennai.
Types of Transcriptions
There are two types of transcriptions, based on the transcription end product, verbatim and clean-read.
In verbatim, the entire script is transcripted so much like it actually is, along with slangs,utterances like oh,um etc and filler words. Whatever the speaker says is transcripted as it is,verbatim. It is good for film scripts where everything is scripted as intentional.
Clean-read just carries the gist of what is being translated, avoiding any utterances, fillers or exclamations. The audience gets the clean-read transcription. It is good for interviews.
