Why Hire a Professional Transcriptionist to Convert Your Dictation or Audios to Typed Text?

With the ready availablility of voice recognition programs, why would anyone choose to partner with a real, live professional transcriptionist to have their dictation or audio recordings converted into text? The many reasons are explained in this article!

When what she had said really sank in -- after all the time and intense effort I had put into learning how to start my business and setting up my transcription business web site -- I felt like someone had punched me in the stomach!

Next, my reaction was huge dismay and questioning, "Why should I even stay in business?" This came JUST after spending almost two months getting clear on why my transcription business feels exciting to me and realizing that I want to assist and support creative, positive, motivated people to succeed in ways they have not been able to before, working on interesting projects!

I imagined emptying my transcription business web site of all information and just leaving a notice (as a 'public service') pointing out to the people who THINK they need me to transcribe their audios that they should go and buy that software instead!

Yikes... drastic thoughts!

But seriously, then I started thinking some more....

I mean, it's a legitimate question! Why SHOULD someone hire me if they can buy software for dictation?

In what situations would dictation software be inferior than having a live, intelligent human being (who is passionate about helping her clients succeed) listening and transcribing their audio material instead?

Knowing such software exists, ANYONE might appropriately ask that question!

Since I've never worked with this kind of software, I realize I may not understand it perfectly, so I decided to ask some questions...

With audio recordings of interviews, groups, or live teleclasses, seminars, and so forth, how does the software distinguish between multiple speakers? How does it know to punctuate and break the text into paragraphs appropriately?

When people just speak naturally, their speech is filled with tons of 'ahs' and 'ummms' and 'you know's' and so forth. Does the software know to filter those out when appropriate? People also string multiple sentences together with 'and' forever! Does the software know when to break the sentences apart?

How about when the quality of the audio recording is not top-notch, such as when there is background noise or people speaking on top of each other... how does it handle that?

Even when there is only a single speaker, if they do not dictate punctuation, paragraphs, etc., does the software intuit that correctly?

If the software does not handle these issues well, how much work is involved in cleaning up the text?

Also, in my relationships with the clients I've worked with, there is the unquantifiable element of me being an objective outsider who can catch errors or discrepancies in the CONTENT. And I often even come up with valuable ideas to help them improve their material!

There is a creative, collaborative give and take between my clients and me that often seems to be of benefit to us BOTH beyond the action of me 'just' transcribing their audio recordings.

So, I concluded, there IS still a need for my services by many people! Not everybody, but I'm sure enough to keep me busy. I actually do enjoy this kind of work under the right circumstances and with the types of clients I intend to connect with!

So in the end, I thanked that discussion forum member for her post and the internal thinking process it sent me through, because it helped me face a fear and come out stronger on the other side!

And then, as a welcome validation of everything I had deduced on my own, quickly after I had submitted my reply to her, she was kind enough to reply with a more detailed explanation of how the voice recognition software works and its definite limitations -- everything I had suspected, and even more!

Professional transcriptionists have an opportunity to contribute value to both their individual clients and the world by assisting their clients to develop their own gifts in ways they might never accomplish on their own!
