.edu Transcription

By: Kevin

27 Jul 2010

.edu has been derived from the word education and accessing websites ending in .edu will lead to an educational institution such as a university, college, or school.

Educational institutions are in the business of imparting knowledge and like any other business have the need to document information.

This documentation process often involves recording of meetings, lectures and other functions associated with an educational institution. These recordings are later converted into text form via transcription.

Business Transcription can be defined as the service of converting audio files into verbatim transcripts for companies across industries ie., for all types of businesses. Every company, which is being registered with stock market (NASDAQ, NYSE etc..) has to comply by the condition of conducting every quarterly meetings on their business, hence updating their level and performance of business to their investors, and the people involved in their business. While this meeting takes place, the meeting co-ordinator captures the meeting, records it as an audio file, and sends it for transcribing it.

Why SkypeCasts Transcription?

By: Kevin

28 May 2010

We all know what is Skype, do we? Here is the Wiki on Skype, Skype (IPA pronunciation: [skɑɪp], i.e. “skype”, rhymes with type) is a proprietary peer-to-peer Internet telephony (VoIP) network founded by the entrepreneurs Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis, also founders of the file sharing application Kazaa.

There have been various features and solutions provided in the past by Skype on VoIP, one such recent feature add-on in Skype 2.5 excites us as a transcription service provider. This feature is nothing but the SkypeCasts.

· Choose a calm and comfortable location.

· Select appropriate microphone.

· Turn off voice activation.

· If you want the participants to be identified throughout the transcript get them to say a little about themselves first, before starting the discussions. That little bit of extra time at the beginning of your session will enhance the opportunity for the transcriber to accurately reflect who said what and when.

Accent barrier for PodCasters

By: Kevin

28 May 2010

Accent or Pronunciation can impact your audience who listens to your PodCast.

I think accent problem pertains to any particular language, for an instance Chinese people in Beijing and Taiwan speaks with a different accent/dialect, each may not understand the other properly which may lead to a great deal of communication/relationship gap with your prospects/customers.
