UNLOCK YOUR TEACHING

Help Others Find Your Preaching and Teaching Through Transcription

Extend The Life of Your Content

Our transcription services are used for a multitude of purposes but people shape their lives and settle their eternal destinies in response to God-given ideas, so being able to extend the life of your sermons, conferences and classes gets us very excited. That is the precise benefit of transcribing those spoken ideas. You can now make them more accessible and searchable through transcription. Transcription is also the first step towards making that content even more accessible to wider audiences through subtitles or translation, for instance.
Here is what transcription does to your content

Search Engines Friendly

Without accurate and comprehensive transcripts, your podcasts are essentially invisible to search engines and cannot contribute to higher rankings.

Reach Different Learning Styles

Many people retain information better when they read it, rather than hear it. Additionally, some prefer the higher degree of instant accessibility of visual materials over audio files.

A Must For Hearing Impaired

Hard-of-hearing and deaf individuals can enjoy access to information when a sermon transcript is available alongside the original format.

Generate More Buzz

The text included in video or audio transcript can be easily quoted in Facebook or other online social networking sites and blogs. That’s an easy way to expand your online audience.

Transcription Delivery Options

Video Player with Search Capabilities

We will send you a folder with the code needed to add an interactive video player with your content that you can embed on your web page. The example below is our Simple Video Option. We also offer a Customized Video Option that’s formatted to look and feel like the rest of it.

Your viewers and readers can then search for keywords and the player will take them directly to that point on the video or they can go to a particular time in the video and the text will move to find that particular time so they can keep reading after that point.

The Customized option has a low setup cost associated with it that we can quote for you as there will probably be an hour or two of developer’s time involved. It can be a great addition to your web site visitors.

About our Transcription Options

Are the Neural Artificial Intelligence Transcriptions Any Good?

While we work with the best Artificial Intelligence robots out there, speech-to-text technology is by no means perfect.  So this does not replace manual transcription, but it does speed up that process in a big way.

You should expect to have to edit the text if you expect this to be read by humans (not just for SEO or searchability purposes). The amount of editing you will be required to do is directly proportional to the quality of the audio and higher quality audio could bring you up to 95% accuracy.

Here are a few tips to get help you get better audio and get the most out of this budget-sensitive option:

  • Avoid background noise.
  • Make sure the microphone is close to the preacher
  • Watch out for echo in the sanctuary
  • Accents & languages

Are there additional costs depending on the format requested?

We can send you the transcriptions in different basic formats (.txt, .xml and .docx) for free and for a little more, we will send them in a Word/PDF templated format ($5 more) of your choice or we can even place them in your website ($5 more).

The web video player has an initial cost of $50 to $100 depending on the amount of work needed to set it up on your site and how much works needs to be done to adapt it to the look and feel of your site.

Other charges and services available?

These additional options/charges apply to all our transcription options:

  • Add Time Stamps (+20%)

  • Verbatim: [Laughter], [crying] (+50%)
