Public speaking and transcription are a match made in time-saving heaven. Using accurate speech transcription to transform recorded audio or video into perfect text is the perfect way to get word-for-word accounts of:

  • Political speeches
  • Graduation speeches
  • Conference speeches
  • Academic speeches
  • One-on-one interviews
  • Multi-speaker events

Why Use Speech Transcription?

While anyone can pick up a laptop, or pad of paper and a pen, to jot down as many details and talking points as possible, there are short and long-term drawbacks to doing it all yourself. Beyond the general time and energy-draining effort, typing and writing consistently can harm your body psychically, resulting in repetitive stress injuries or other annoyances.

The benefits of using speech transcription to convert voice to text are hard to ignore. Increased mobility, improved information accuracy, enhanced focus, and overall more consistent mental energy are just a few of the many ways that transcription services can have a lasting effect.

Have a speech coming up? 

Armed with a mobile transcription app (or any other audio recorder), you can quickly and easily record what you want to say in your speech and then transcribe the text to review and reference at any time during preparation. Transcription has an incredible effect on improving retention of information, so you’ll be better off on the big day.

Have a recorded speech on-hand? 

If it’s available online, it’s available to be transcribed. Speeches can be recorded online or on your own, using audio recording software for your mobile phone or desktop computer, so you can capture any kind of speech; in history or today. Once recorded, upload the file and have it transcribed to quickly reference any information with the most accurate recall and detail.

Bonus! Upload speeches from YouTube directly into our platform to avoid any uneccessary steps in your speech transcription.
