Transcription Tips

The following are transcription tips to make you a better transcriber. Check them out and start improving on the tasks, especially if you commonly receive one from time to time.

  1. Be a fast and accurate typist. Your typing speed matters in transcribing documents. However, you must also be precise, or else, you will waste time in making corrections.
  2. You must have accurate and clear listening skills because you need to understand what’s on the audio in order to type it. For it, you need good earphones or headphones. Invest in a good one. If there is at least a speaker, they have an accent or there is a background noise, the more quality you need in your earphones/headphones.
  3. Correct the relevant information as well as the spelling of what you’re transcribing. Take the names of the speakers down too.
  4. Use transcription software for the task. You can choose between paid or free software online. You also need a laptop and foot pedals. Others also use keyboard shortcut keys or desktops. Choose what’s suitable for you.
  5. Know the required format. If you’re working for clients, you must know how he or she wants the format to be done. It will be easier than to change the format later.
  6. Save proofreading time by controlling your accuracy especially on grammar and spelling. Or else, you may need someone to do it for you before sending the finish product.
  7. Have a comfortable, quiet working environment. You must also work in a space that provides you with comfort especially that you’re working for long periods of time. With it, you can also type faster.
  8. Practice with typing tests if you’re a slow typist. It will help you improve not only on speed but also on accuracy.
  9. Assess the sound quality as soon as you received the file. You may want to report back to the client and let him or her know of the file quality. Get a better version if it’s a poor quality audio.
  10. Enjoy what you’re doing! There is no better feeling than enjoying the tasks you’re working at, so be sure to love it.
