Everything You Need to Know About Road Show Transcription

It’s helpful for traveling marketers to work with Transcription Services to document recorded presentations for the organization’s archives. The most modern transcriptionists allow you to upload audio to their website to get the process rolling. Here are more details on road show transcriptions.

What Are the Uses of Roadshow Transcription?
Marketers and politicians are two types of clients to look for to capitalize on road show transcriptions. Since a road show is usually a campaign to either raise money or awareness, it is closely associated with politics as well as enterprises.

Politicians travel to give speeches, not just during election years since their jobs are to represent groups of people. Constituents of politicians tend to have an interest in keeping records of road show campaigns.

Transcriptions have additional value because they can be uploaded to websites and sent to media outlets as news stories.

The reason organizations prefer to outsource transcription services is because it’s a time-consuming process that involves a mind-numbing focus on correct transcription, spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

Challenges of Road Show Transcriptions
Loud noise and high costs are two common barriers that transcriptionists often face. On one hand, transcription services are supposed to save money, but problems such as background crowd noise can cause delays in transcription, requiring several listens to get the right text.

The most important challenges continue to be speed and accuracy. Many companies need transcriptions the next day while some media outlets need the documentation within the same day to serve audiences.

Things to Focus While Planning a Road Show:

  • Survey the Route Before the Final Event
    When planning road shows, organizers need to survey the routes of the events and become familiar with the surroundings. This will help determine where recordings can be made to reduce the possibility of excessive background noise from the environment or industrial machines.

    This preliminary research will help the transcriptionist determine which recording technology will be most appropriate, as some scenarios only require small portable devices.

  • Use Good Quality Recording Equipment
    Ultimately, the better the recording equipment, the more likely voices will be recorded as clearly as possible. But when noise factors are reduced, more affordable equipment can be used.
