Transcription on Yack.net

What is transcription?

Transcription is the process where audio is converted into text. The most accurate results come from manual transcription, but this is time-consuming and therefore costly. Computers produce automatic transcription at a far quicker rate than a human could, however it is less accurate. In recent years, automatic transcription has become more advanced due to advances in speech recognition.

How does Yack.net use transcription?

Yack.net records video and audio calls, and then runs these through transcription software to convert the speech into text. Once it’s finished processing, you can then play back the call directly on Yack.net and view the transcribed messages underneath. This allows you to search for a word or phrase and the transcribed video will appear as a result. You can replay the video directly from search.

The transcription created is unlikely to ever be perfect, however it will be accurate enough to convey the general meaning of a conversation, and allow you to find a certain section of it later. You can also edit the transcription if you’d like to keep a more accurate record of the conversation.

How can transcription help my business?

Firstly, recorded and transcribed calls mean that all your communication is now searchable. This reduces the time needed to find something specific. If you can’t remember what your tasks are after a call or if you’ve forgotten who told you they would be on holiday next week, it’s all there on Yack.net. This is useful for businesses juggling multiple projects and clients, such as agencies.

The transcribed messages can also act as the minutes of a meeting, or as a transcript of an interviewee’s responses or a journalist’s interview. Captured are the topics of conversation, making it easier to create more detailed minutes or transcripts if needed.

Connected Digital, a software development company based in the UK, has been using Yack.net to communicate with its team of developers based in Rzeszów, Poland. They have a call with the Polish office every morning. They use Yack.net to record and transcribe their call, so they can refer back to later. In particular, Connected Digital have found the transcription useful to search back and find when the developers said the next release of the system would be available. It’s also a good way for people who missed the meeting to be able to catch up afterwards. That could be by replaying the video from the start, or jumping to a specific section that they’re interested in. The transcription has meant Connected Digital can rely on everyone getting the information they need from a video call.
