Transcription services have become quite popular in the new globalized business due to its inevitable need at times, and its huge benefits the other times. Transcription involves converting speech, recorded or live, into written or electronic text document. These services are usually provided for business, legal, medical and individual purposes. For example, when deciding to write a book, you may just record your ideas, and then employ the services of a transcriptionist.
The introduction of cassettes and recorders have made the process of transcription much easier and have also brought new possibilities to it. Cassettes can be transported via mail which means that the transcriptionists can have the work brought to them in their houses or offices and then work on them from their place only.
Due to technology advancement, almost everything can be transcribed today. A speech for example can be recorded in one part of the world and then be sent to the transcriptionist in another part of the world who can email the transcribed document back and all this can be done in a matter of few hours. Of course, when dealing with government agencies, law firms, courts and other business concerns, security of the data should be carefully handled.
Charging for transcription services varies from individual to individual and organization to organization. It is often quoted in the form of per word, per minute, or per hour. Introduction of transcription softwares has greatly reduced the time required to transcribe a work but many do not encourage the use of software due to errors inherent in their use. Issues like editing and proofreading are best performed by humans only and no software can match that precision.
