By simply converting live or recorded speech into an electronic or written document is what transcription service is all about.Not just by word of mouth, the birth of modern methods for creating documentation has proven that transcription services will play a pivotal role in documenting processes, procedures – the value of the written word. Outsourcing transcriptions enables facilities and professionals to save costs, gain access to a pool of high-caliber talent and be benefited of the quality processes established by industry professionals.

By simply converting live or recorded speech into an electronic or written document is what transcription service is all about. A commonly outsourced industry – be it business, legal, or for medical purpose, – the typical type of transcription comes from the spoken-language into a computer text file.

Common examples are medical transcriptions wherein the voice of a medical practitioner during actual practice or by a court reporter during a trial proceeding, the important thing that a professional transcriptionist should consider is accuracy and the details of the recorded conversation

It is no easy feat, to increase the accuracy of a transcript, the transcriptionist should include all words on the recording including repeated broken thoughts, heard on the recording of a dialogue.

For official purposes, readers should be able to scan through a transcript to find the dialogue they are looking for. If needing a service of transcript for an official purpose, it is best to hire a transcription service to professionally edit the document. Your final transcript will be edited for grammar. It should not contain false starts, repeated words, unnatural speech patterns. It is all about readability.

Cited by Wikipedia, “Due to the increasing demand to document medical records, countries started to outsource the services of medical transcription. In the United States, the medical transcription business is estimated to be worth US$10 to $25 billion annually and growing 15 percent each year. The main reason for outsourcing is stated to be the cost advantage due to cheap labor in developing countries, and their currency rates as compared to the U.S. dollar.”

    So now that I'm on it, let me just tell you that it's not enough. BPO is the answer if you really wanna save on capital and labor expenses. That's how a lot of SME's in North America and Europe got to survive and compete with big-time players in the economny.
