Transcription Services

Transcription aligns spoken text with its written form. It can include linguistic (human sounds belonging to a language) and nonlinguistic (nonhuman or other sounds, like a car passing or wind whistling) annotation in itself.

This allows us to help you expand your digital database of documents more quickly. We use OCR technology to accelerate this process when indicated.

Transcriptions are often used to improve automatic speech recognition systems, which assist to automatically transcribe what a user says while using a device. Transcription is the first step in processing spoken data because once it is converted to its written form successfully, other natural language processing and analytics tasks can be applied to the text.

Additionally, text-to-text is another form of transcription that speeds up the time by obtaining printed materials and converting the source file into a text file. This allows the opportunity to edit and update files as needed.
