Digital Transcription – Important Factors to Consider

In a world where ‘advanced’ is replacing ‘traditional’, it’s no different with transcription. Digital transcription has replaced analogue as it offers many advantages. For instance, if you are a lawyer or attorney, all you need to do is to dictate into a quality handheld digital recorder, upload your audio files to a computer, and get them transcribed by a professional legal transcription company. However, getting quality transcripts depend on various factors:

  • Background noise: Background noises such as traffic, echoes caused by high ceilings, paper shuffling, and other sounds can affect the quality of the recording. So, as far as possible, record your dictation in a calm, noise-free environment. In fact, even professional transcription services will promise high levels of accuracy only with good audio.
  • Clear speech: Make sure you speak clearly. Accents and other diction issues will affect accuracy and transcription time.
  • Use a quality digital recorder: While buying a digital recorder, make sure it’s an advanced device that offers the capabilities that are compatible with your needs. A device with a proper USB cable is important as without one, getting the file removed for transcription would be impossible.

If you are a legal professional with volume transcription requirements, contact an experienced legal transcription service provider. This will ensure that you benefit from advanced technology and secure options for dictation and file transfer for accurate and timely transcription solutions at affordable cost.
