Transcription is the process of capturing every word that a speaker makes in a detailed fashion. Interview transcription is a popular choice for collecting information for a wide variety of purposes that can range from analyzing and interpreting data for research to keeping all parties on the same page during a legal trial.

There are two primary reasons to use interview transcription. The first is that it allows someone to capture every word in as much detail as possible. The second is that it gives the recorder the option to correct, remove, or standardize varying speech peculiarities including noises (i.e. pauses, stammers), grammar, and accents. These peculiarities can be distracting; the last thing that you want during a research study or a trial is to have a person change their mind based on an unfamiliar accent or a pause that was a little bit longer than normal.

Do you struggle with answering behavioral questions during interviews? In recent years, behavioral questions have become increasingly widespread for job interviews. It's important to fully prepare for these questions so that you're ready to answer them during an interview. A recent survey revealed the following tips for answering behavioral questions.

  • Identify half a dozen examples of past experiences that relate to the behaviors or skills that the employer is seeking. You want to be able to showcase your top selling points for the job at hand.

  • Focus on examples that are positive or situations that started out negatively and ended positively. Be sure to demonstrate how you made the best out of the outcome.

  • Use a variety of recent examples; look for examples from different aspects of your life but avoid examples that took place a number of years ago.

  • Prepare to relay your examples in narrative form. No one wants to hear you recite an essay or list jumbled facts in a way that doesn't convey a clear message.

Whether you conduct interviews on a regular basis for your job or you're simply looking for a better way to record interviews, transcription is a great option. The following details list a few of its key benefits.Job Interview

  • The interviewer has a detailed account that he or she can refer back to as needed.

  • Individuals not present at the interview still have access to the interview in full. This prevents disputes about the details of the interview and allows people to expand upon the information gathered during the interview.

  • In the event that someone needs to review or reuse any of the details, he or she can do so without having to contact the interviewee.

  • The interviewer has a reference source. In the event that a follow up interview is required, the interviewer won't have to go through previous questions or make the interviewer repeat a lot of details that were covered during the first interview.

Are you still unclear as to how and why you would use interview transcription? It can be a key asset in a wide variety of settings, including but not limited to, the following:

Written results make it simple to analyze and review data quickly and accurately. If you're an educator, medical professional, or marketer with ongoing research projects, you'll quickly find that an interview transcription is the only way that you want to work with data.

Legal use
There is no denying that interview transcription is vital for the courtroom setting. From paralegals to judges, having a recorded manuscript for a witness statement or legal interview can significantly impact the outcome of a given case. If a statement or interview becomes evidence in a case, having a recorded interview makes it easier for all parties to stay on the same page.

Meeting summaries
Whether you work with a large staff or you have a lot of employees working from home, it can be tough to get everyone together for a meeting at the same time. With interview transcription, people who are unable to attend can review the entire meeting in full. For longer meetings, this service may be beneficial even for those who were present, seeing as they may need to go back through some of the information that was covered at a later date.

Media applications
Accuracy is key for the media. Misquoting a source can cost a journalist or television reporter his job. Interview transcription also allows media outlets to develop closed captioning or subtitles for television and video viewing.
