Video Transcription Services

The advent of YouTube and low cost digital cameras has tremendously broadened the quantity and reach of video on the web. The challenge for many web video producers is making it easy for others to find their content. One way to do that is to use Video Transcription as a way to generate search-able text so that users can find your content using search engines.

At Speechpad, we’ve built special tools for uploading and transcribing audio from video, whether it comes from a URL, like YouTube, or the video file directly. We accept a broad range of file formats making it even easier for you to upload straight to our site—including .mp4, .video, .mov, and .avi!

There are often two different ways that people attempt video transcription before they get frustrated and come to the experts here at Speechpad: in house, and automatic/electronic transcription. The problem with in-house transcription is that you’re taking valuable time from your interns and employees, who aren’t trained in professional transcription like we are, and in return you get a second-rate transcription that cost you a day’s worth of labor.

On the other hand, some more economically minded will try an automatic video transcription services that just don’t understand the difference between “orcs” from Lord of the Rings and “ox” who plow your field. Not transcribing blockbuster fantasy films? How about “access” versus “axes,” or “hearsay” and “here’s a”? Common human intuition often overrides the capabilities of a computer, especially when the task it to transcribe video to text.

How many times have you tried to find a restaurant using your smart phone guide, only to wind up with a search for nonsense?
