Conference Transcription Services


A conference is a meeting in which exchange of knowledge occurs. Usually, due to their professional nature, conferences have formal agenda. This makes it essential for the members of any conference to maintain a true and accurate record of the discussions and conversations that take place. This can be accomplisehd in two ways: A dedicated transcriptionist can sit in the conference and write down everything that is said, or all the audio can be recorded and turned into an audio file. Then, the audio file can be transcribed. The second option is usually more appropriate because it costs less and it reduces the chance of errors.

A transcriptionist can transcribe a conference verbatim. This means literally everything that is said is written. extraneous phrases like "you know" and "um..." are all included. It is important for someone who is transcribing for a conference to be aware of these points. However, there are also times when a client may need to know what happened in a conference, but they may not need to know all the extraneous phrases.

A conference transcription may be the transcription of a press conferences, board meeting, seminar, research interview, phone conference, and focus groups. A conference does not have to be in a physical room. A lot of times, conference transcriptionists transcribe conferences that happened over the internet or the phone.

Confidentiality is an important aspect to consider when choosing a conference transcription services provider. At Audio Transcription Services, we have a strict privacy policy, which dictates that no parts of your transcriptions will be shared with anyone without a legitimate interest.

For conference and seminar transcription services, we highly recommend obtaining an electronic record of the events, either by shooting a video, or recording the audio using a digital recorder. This will reduce the chance of errors and imrpove the quality of the transcriptions.
