1. Transcribe Interviews & Meetings

Meetings and interviews are inevitable, and often necessary, for businesses to truly thrive and experience continuous growth (both strategically and structurally). However, documenting those key moments can be a difficult, tedious task for most to undertake — it can take hours to transcribe an interview by hand. By recording interviews and meetings to then convert the audio to text, you’ll allow your interaction to flow more naturally, save expended energy, and be able to quickly and easily reference the captured content.

2. Capture Events & Conferences

Depending on the industry you operate in, conferences and in-person events are a huge part of networking – and ultimately, growing sustainably. Additionally, these events are the perfect way to not only learn more about the specifics of your business and potential customers but also to connect with like-minded individuals. By recording multi-speaker conferences, and transforming the audio to text, you’ll be able to focus on the key discussions at hand, rather than worrying about capturing every detail by hand.

3. Add Closed Captions to Videos

Video content is reigning supreme in the marketing world and has become a necessary medium for sharing information, connecting with consumers, and building a valuable brand. Adding video transcripts to your YouTube or Vimeo content online is the best way to improve SEO and get more traffic to your website – search engines can easily index and rank your videos through the audio to text transcripts, opening your company’s content to a wider audience.

4. Record Ideas & To-Dos

All great projects start with a great idea, and a set of to-dos to accomplish that idea. With the help of a transcription app, you can easily record your best thoughts, ideas and impromptu brainstorming sessions without the hassle of writing out every important piece. Once captured, converting the audio to text allows you to reap the benefits of a perfectly-recalled idea without having to suffer through the endless typing.
