Accurate Podcast & Video Podcast Transcription
What is the benefit of transcribing my podcast?
There are two key benefits in using audio transcription to get your podcast transcribed.
- Accessibility: A transcription of a podcast broadens its accessibility to those who are learning English or who are Deaf or hard of hearing; giving your user the flexibility to read the content when they don't have access to the audio.
- SEO (Search Engine Optimization): Transcribing your podcast adds that magical layer that allows search engines like Google to crawl through the text, which makes it easier for people to discover your podcast and makes the content of your podcast searchable.
Say hello to better SEO
Did you know that the text in Subtitles and Closed Captions can be crawled and indexed by search engines?
Publishing a transcript alongside your podcast, or uploading captions to your video podcast can boost your SEO. It is for exactly this reason that the most popular videos on YouTube all have closed captions, the same goes for podcasts.
A transcript helps your podcast to be shown in search results which broadens its reach.
Who uses Podcast Transcription?
Transcription can benefit anyone with a podcast or video podcast. A text version of your podcast or video podcast helps to make your content more accessible. It is common practice to publish the transcript alongside the podcast (video or audio), in order to get the benefit of both accessibility & SEO.
Attempting to produce your own transcript can be very time-consuming and automatic search recognition (ASR) services often require heavy editing to reach acceptable levels of accuracy. That's where a professional transcription service comes in.
Transcription for editing. Editors can find the core content quickly, to lift key quotes from the audio. Transcription allows new listeners to skim-read the audio before listening which saves them time - adding real value to your podcast episodes.

What are Automated Captions? Won't I get my own transcriber?
Our transcription service is carried out by our skilled team. We know that only the personal touch is capable of giving you the accuracy you need. The automated component applies only to how the transcript is matched to the action on screen.
Can't I just use YouTube's automated subtitle generator?
YouTube Studio does use an automated Speech to Text tool to generate subtitles. However, its lack of accuracy can diminish the impact of your message.
Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) achieves best-case accuracy of 85% with most falling significantly short of this.
However, if you prefer, we can supply you with a raw transcript which YouTube can convert into an SRT file by running its own alignment process.
I have an important deadline coming up, how quickly can you get my captions ready?
We have flexible turnarounds to suit your needs and budget with 12 hour, 24 hour, 48 hour and 7-day options available.
