Lecture transcription is the documentation of lectures, talks and readings. Educators and other speakers discuss informative subjects in class rooms, halls, university halls and other forums. Transcribing lectures helps the listener catch up on important aspects of the talk which may have been missed. It also helps the speaker document and archive lectures for future reference and use.
Researchers say that listeners generally lose interest in the lecture and find it difficult to keep track of what’s being said after about 20-30 minutes. They may take notes, but these are usually brief and do not cover all points of the lecture. This is why accurate lecture transcription services are so much in demand. All the necessary information is captured accurately in proper format and delivered in time to meet their needs. Audio and video files are transcribed and converted to well-formatted text for easy reference.
