3 Key Transcription Tools For Remote Teams

According to the US Census, 5.2% of workers in the US worked at home in 2017— that’s 8 million people — a trend that’s firmly on the rise. With improved collaboration tools, more of us are remote workers than ever before. However, while this provides many benefits, it provides its own set of challenges, too. 


Staying aligned and motivated through close communication is key for any remote team. But when there’s no chance of a quick sync-up by the water cooler, it’s easy for miscommunication and confusion to arise over even the smallest of projects and tasks. 


Transcription is a powerful tool for remote teams to stay on top and in sync. With the ability to record all meetings in text form, in addition to presentations, brainstorms or any other kind of phone call, remote teams can make sure they don’t miss a beat. With all written notes taken care of, team members can focus on the task at hand and not on taking rushed notes. Plus, the content from every meeting or conversation becomes easily searchable and reviewable content.


Looking for the best time-saving transcription tools for your remote team? Then look no further. Here are the 3 must-have tools to keep your remote team on track.



  1. The TranscribeMe App



Available for Android and iOS, the TranscribeMe App allows you to record voice files from your phone and upload them directly onto our transcription platform. Plus, you can purchase transcriptions in multiple currencies, perfect for even the most international of teams. iPhone users can even upload audio files directly from apps like Dropbox and Voice Memos, and receive push notifications as soon as the transcripts are ready for delivery. 


Fast, effective and effortless, the TranscribeMe App offers best-in-class privacy with a secure, micro-tasked transcription workflow and an easy-to-use interface that allows you to record the highest quality audio. 



  1. The TranscribeMe API



The TranscribeMe API gives your remote team direct access to TranscribeMe’s web service. This allows you to link your account directly with TranscribeMe, upload voice recordings or other media, order transcriptions, and quickly receive your transcripts via email. We have already successfully integrated with a number of companies including Evernote, IPSOS, and NVivo, and are constantly building new complementary partnerships to best serve our clients.


Well-documented and easy to integrate, the TranscribeMe API provides your remote team with secure access to an efficient, scalable transcription platform so that you can get transcripts of everything you need in a flash. 



  1. The TranscribeMe Portal



Your main port of call for all your transcription needs, the TranscribeMe Portal is where you can upload all your content and request transcripts from your web browser. The Portal is easy-to-use and supports file uploads from your computer, Dropbox, and a wide range of online media sites such as Youtube and Vimeo. 


From here you can choose a range of transcription options: First Draft (which goes through one layer of transcription, providing easy-to-read raw text), Standard (passing through two layers of transcription for high quality and easy-to-read text), and Verbatim (two layers of transcription resulting in high quality text that captures all filler words, stuttering and speech errors).
