Transcript Clean-up & Editing
There are many advantages to using automated speech recognition transcript, one of which is speed. Your recordings are transcribed almost in real time without having to know how to type. Automated transcription is also convenient and affordable, and the quality continues to improve. However, there is still a way to be to reach a consistent 98 - 99% accuracy.
Automated speech to text systems can't always determine if it's there, their, or they're; to, too, or two; by, bye, or buy; and Philadelphia has Segway tours, not segue tours. Names, technical words, unfamiliar terms, acronyms, and slang can be misinterpreted, with punctuation and paragraph breaks not always where they should be.
A high-quality recording with one or two clear speakers and no background noise can result in a 90-95% accurate transcript.
