The normal transcription process can be slow, time-intensive and costly when you tap into your company’s internal resources. Crowdsourcing your audio transcription not only gives you scalability, but it gives you high-quality, accurate text transcripts.
In addition, the creation of microtasks to complete the transcription process of your audio files ensures several things:
Any transcription job, big or small, is tasked to crowd workers with experience in transcribing audio files in a variety of specific areas:
Sensitive data and text files are protected, and the crowdsourcing of the transcription process produces fast, accurate results that are checked through quality assurance to guarantee reliability and accuracy. Sending your audio transcription to the crowd accomplishes several things.
Whether you seek to utilize the transcription process via crowdsourcing to create text documents of meetings, broadcasts, interviews, mediations, conferences or something else, the crowd puts usable text transcripts back in your hands in an unbeatable amount of time.
Any size transcription job is broken into microtasks for crowd workers to transcribe in segments. Each segment length varies by the type of job and preferences. Segments can be as short as 5 or 10 seconds to preserve the security of sensitive information by not giving any single worker the whole audio file, or each segment can be as long as 5 minutes or more for one worker to transcribe.
Regardless of segment length, each completed transcript is put through rigorous quality assurance by having multiple workers review segments of or complete text transcripts while comparing them to the original audio file(s).
With hundreds of thousands of workers waiting to transcribe and process your audio transcription files, you get results fast. The internal moderation team at CrowdSource works with you to build specifications based on guidelines you provide. Crowd workers follow a general style guide for formatting, and this guide is combined with specifications necessary to complete your audio transcription. The result is tailored and specific documents that fit into your business environment and provide real business value sooner rather than later.
