Artificial Intelligence or AI now plays a significant role in transforming countless manual transcription tasks into automated ones. Many businesses require transcripts to get word-for-word records of meetings, virtual conference calls, lectures, conferences and more. Automated transcription services can convert speech easier than ever. Transcripts are also necessary to make any content accessible to individuals with disabilities like hearing loss. Audio transcription services provided by experienced providers can make audio files searchable, editable and shareable. AI-powered transcription software can be used to transcribe live or recorded audios or videos into text.
