Different Types Of Transcription Services Available

Transcription is the conversion of video or audio files into a written format. There are three different types of transcription provided by transcription services in India. Based on your need of how you will be using the transcribed file, you can choose one from these.
Verbatim Transcription
The verbatim transcription is the most difficult, time-consuming and complicated type of transcription. It involves the transcription of every word spoken, very emotion expressed, every laugh, every mumbled word (even if it is not correct grammatically), and every background noise in a time-coded written format. The written format thus produced is an exact replica of the video or audio file. This is the most expensive form of transcription as the transcriber has to pay close attention to all the sound details recorded in the video or audio file. The verbatim transcription is often utilized for legal proceedings, commercials, videos, films, etc.
Edited Transcription
In this type of transcription, certain sections of the video or audio file is omitted, while keeping intact the meaning of the entire recording. The edited transcription is another costly type of transcription as the transcriber has to identify what in the video or audio file is important and what is not. He or she has to understand the purpose and meaning of the recording to de-clutter it, while still preserving its integrity. This kind of transcription is utilized for conferences, classes, speeches, seminars, etc.
Intelligent Transcription
This transcription eliminates half-sentences, mumbled words, emotions, etc in the written format. Thus the transcribed content is straightforward and reads intelligently. Due to its intelligent nature, this type of transcription is expensive. Highly experienced, trained and qualified transcribers are employed for intelligent transcription as more work is needed for the editing phase than the transcription itself.
Transcriptionservices in India provide all the three types of transcription. Each of the three transcription types has their own merits and demerits. It is therefore important to evaluate your needs to determine the type of transcription you require. The determination will in turn affect the turn-around-time and cost of the transcription project.
