TV and radio broadcast transcription services are widely used by both huge conglomerate stations and production companies and small, independent producers. Frequently, transcripts are needed to document the broadcast, to provide educational resources, or even to make the content accessible for the deaf or hard of hearing.
However, transcribing TV and radio broadcasts can be both time consuming and difficult. Without the proper professional equipment and staffing, transcribing even one hour of audio files can be a rather daunting task. For TV and radio broadcasters of any size, professional transcription services provide a convenient and efficient way to translate broadcasts into accurate, reliable text files in a timely manner.
Our online transcription services offer a streamlined way for TV and radio broadcasters, or broadcasting hopefuls, to submit their audio file recordings to be transcribed quickly and accurately. Particularly in the broadcast industry, time is money. Our professional transcriptionists can translate audio files into text files in a fraction of the time and money that it would cost to do in-house.
We provide rapid turnaround on accurate text files that are suitable for archiving, sharing, or uploading onto websites for public consumption. These can assist with marketing, educational outreach, accessibility, and documentation of past broadcasts for company history.
Broadcast journalism students frequently utilize our transcription service to create text-based portfolios for submission along with resumes, to work on their style and technique, and to document their growth over the course of their burgeoning career. In early careers, transcripts of work are far more easily shared, and thus likely to be viewed, than video or audio clips.
Public radio hosts use transcripts to document past episodes for show history, share important educational material, and provide a text content that is accessible for all users, regardless of ability to hear. In public television and radio contexts, text files are often a requirement to continue receiving public funding in order to meet increasingly stringent accessibility laws on websites related to the content.
Television broadcasters look to transcription services to provide text files of cutting-edge interviews, landmark shows, or even just the latest episode of a hit show. Text files are easily archived and are small files to share, allowing them to be emailed, posted, or uploaded much more quickly and efficiently than video and audio archives can be loaded or accessed.
Innovators and producers looking to pitch their new show use transcripts to send with their video files to provide instant, readable documentation of their idea. They know that not every clip will be viewed, but it is much more likely that a text file will be read or shared around the production company, hopefully catching the right person’s eye.
