Audio transcription is the process of transforming the spoken word from an ephemeral moment, into a tangible, permanent record. It is used by a surprisingly broad range of people from academics to financial advisers, medical practitioners, the media, and members of the general public. Transcription itself is ubiquitous and its uses are as varied as the people who commission it!
While being of value to everyone, transcription is of particular importance to those who experience hearing loss. With one in six people in Australia having a hearing loss today (and this number projected to increase to one in four by 2050), any organisation providing a written transcript of podcasts, advertisements, presentations, et cetera, has the benefit of significantly increasing their potential audience, the accessibility and impact of a message. This is where companies like The Transcription People (TTP) come in!
TTP has an extensive list of blue-chip clients who regularly draw on our expertise when they need a high-quality, accurate, and fast transcription service. More than just simply typing up a recording, TTP provide specialised transcription support spanning many industries. Below is a list of just some of the sectors we support:
• Business Coaching
• Information Technology
• Public Relations
• Real Estate
Looking at trends such as Australia’s ageing population and the growth in the information superhighway, transcription is likely to become even more common than it is today. Yet, despite all of this, transcription is still a remarkably underutilised resource!
