Video transcription is becoming more common as it’s become a central component of business culture. It’s already a big hit with law firms since videos help document cases while the transcribed text becomes part of the evidence.

Any fumble or words of hesitancy in the answer would reflect in the verbatim transcript. It also gives us a clearer picture of the character of the speaker. While intelligent verbatim transcription has a professional touch to it, it may not convey the nature of the respondent so well as verbatim transcription.
