Avoid these mistakes in Transcription

Phonetically spelling words

“Speed” transcribing

Poor research

Bad headphones and transcription software

Lack of proof reading

Transcription service should provide accurate documents to the clients. Unfortunately, sometimes the quality of transcriptions is far from excellent. Please, read how these mistakes in transcription can greatly affect to final transcription.

Phonetically spelling words

Some transcriptionists have this wrong habit. Sometimes they guess at names, acronyms, company names and terms and don’t check their final text documents.

“Speed” transcribing

Strong typing skills is a must for any transcriptionist. However, some transcriptionists who have a typing speed of 120 words per minute may miss out words, make punctuation mistakes, can’t create a completed sentence from an audio file or identify speakers.

Poor research

Almost in every transcription job there is something that requires research - a few terms or spelling of some words that are used within a discussion or interview. Transcriptionist should understand the meaning of the words used in a recording to avoid mistakes.

Bad headphones and transcription software

Superior quality headphones and special transcription software are necessary for transcriptionists. Many people will not spend up to $300 to headphones, but it’s difficult to do job well without the good equipment.

Lack of proof reading

Many transcription companies do not provide a proof reading to clients. Their services are cheaper but the accuracy of text documents is low. Proof reading is the important part of the quality reviewing process including filling up empty spaces, correcting spelling, punctuation errors, checking for words that have similar sounds when pronounced but different spellings and more. Professional transcription services are proud to deliver accurate final documents you can completely rely on.
