There are several video conferencing tools available on the internet among which, Zoom has created a niche for itself. Zoom provides convenience and versatility to its users, making it one of the most popular video conferencing tools out there. It is the best cloud-based video and audio conferencing platform for meetings, webinars, conference calls, etc.

Zoom provides many features like recording, screen sharing, and even transcribing a meeting or call is possible. There is an option available in the “Record” settings of Zoom, which says “Audio Transcript.” If the user clicks on that option prior to starting the recording of the meeting, the user will get an email with a link to the meeting’s transcription file once the recording is finished. The Zoom recordings can be transcribed automatically if the user has saved it in their cloud instead of their computer. But, the security issues that have been faced by Zoom users are not hidden. Users have experienced data leaks and flaws in the Zoom cloud.

Even though Zoom has such an advanced feature for a video conferencing tool, it only provides artificial intelligence (AI) powered transcription for its meetings. The automated transcription comes with a timestamp, and the user will have to edit the transcript to make it more accurate. This could be a painful process since the user won’t be able to figure out the punctuation or capitalization of the entire transcription. After looking at all this, getting yourself a human-powered transcription service provider like GMR Transcription is a better idea.

GMR Transcription provides 100% human-powered transcription services, which provides a higher level of accuracy than Zoom’s AI transcription. If you use GMR Transcription, your data will be higher quality and secure. GMR Transcription provides a step by step process that helps you easily transcribe your Zoom recordings. You can visit gmrtranscription.com today and get your audio files transcribed accurately. 

Steps for Transcribing with GMR Transcription:

  • Call Recording: To get your meetings transcribed, you will first have to record your call. When you join the Zoom meeting, click on the “Record” icon without forgetting.
  • Save Recording: Recording the call is not enough. Once you are done with your call, make sure to save the recording before ending the Zoom meeting. 
  • Using GMR Transcription: After your call is recorded, you can visit GMR Transcription through a web browser by visiting gmrtranscription.com or by installing the mobile app Easy2Transcribe.  
  • Registration: You can register yourself by paying a $1 fee. There is no pre-payment on your orders, and this registration fee is just to confirm that you are a real customer. 
  • Upload Zoom Recording: After your registration, you can upload your recordings. Just drag them to the ‘Upload Files’ option. 
  • Payment: Once the transcriptions are done, you can make the payment and get your transcriptions in your email. 

When you are on the website, you can upload multiple files at once as well. After uploading the files, you get all the information, including the duration. You can even ask for multiple transcriptions if there are multiple speakers in your Zoom recording. After the transcription is complete, you will get an email notifying you to review the transcript. Once you are done reviewing, you can export your file to PDF or Word Doc format.

Transcribing your Zoom recordings is a very convenient way of sharing the content. You don’t have to replay the audio repeatedly to listen to a particular part of the recording. It becomes easily accessible even for those who were absent from the meeting since the Zoom recordings are well documented. GMR Transcription is a 100% human-powered service provider, so your transcriptions of Zoom recording will definitely be higher quality. You also get guaranteed security, unlike Zoom’s cloud option.
