What is a Webcast?

A webcast is simply another name for a webinar. This is an online presentation that involves broadcasting content to an audience either live or on-demand. You may want to hold a webinar to accomplish any of the following:

  • Educate your audience about your products or services

  • Provide a product or sales presentation

  • Hold a live Q&A session with your audience

  • Show how a product works

Through a live webcast, you can interact with your audience in real time. For example, you can hold polls, ask questions, share your screen with the audience, show your webcam, and so on.

Sometimes, technical glitches can happen on the side of your webinar attendees and they may miss the important information you’re providing. You can get the webinar transcribed to ensure your audience has the right information.

Webinar transcription can also help you reach a wider audience. A transcription services providing company can provide subtitles to your webinar in any language you want. This is important if you are trying to reach a segment of your audience that does not understand English.

How a Webcast Transcription Company Can Help You
