English Transcription Software vs. Human Transcribers

If you pay for English transcription, then you don’t want to have to re-edit because the artificial intelligence (AI) didn’t transcribe it accurately.

Human scribes are a valuable commodity because we (native English speakers) have a far superior understanding of English.

From the Scots to the Texans, we (human scribes) have a lifetime of immersion listening to all kinds of English.

Unlike AI’s, we also ‘get’ humour and sarcasm – and we know how to correctly communicate it in writing.

english transcription and typing services go hand in hand


<< These services go hand-in-hand because efficient English transcription relies on quality typing skills – and typing skills are essential for quality transcription.

My English transcription online services are about providing timely and accurately completed tasks. I am confident in English from around the world. However, like most people, I do struggle with what a Scotsman says after a few pints!

Who Uses English Transcription Services?

From here in Queensland Australia to entrepreneurs, universities, vloggers and attorneys around the world, I am here to help.

Linguistic Anthropology

If you haven’t seen my ‘about’ page, then you may not know that I am an anthropologist. Outside of writing, listening to people speak and travelling are what feed my soul. Curious about anthropology or linguistic anthropology? Get Googling 🙂 or send me a message.

Infographic with four reasons why video transcription is important

What is Audio and Video Transcription?

Any English recorded for screen or audio can be transcribed. For example, a commonly seen video transcription is captioning for movies.

Turn Your Videos into Blogs or Articles

Vloggers reach a larger audience (and rank better) if they publish a transcript of their vlog. So, if you’d like more views and subscribers, start posting written content with your video content.

Why is Video Transcription Important?

Search engines cannot crawl and index video. The first key to search engine optimisation is for the content to communicate with search engines. If you only publish a video, all search engines know about your video is what you put in the heading and description.

Video coupled with written content is the golden combination!

  1. The first thing to remember is that people watch your videos and read your online content. Not all people can hear. Those with hearing difficulties will be stoked to find videos that cater to their communication needs.
  2. Accurate English transcription means your video content is communicated exactly as you meant it. In short, transcription ensures your message isn’t lost.
  3. People appreciate when transcribed video and audio accompanies recorded content. Perhaps they are stuck in a library or outside where it is so loud they can’t hear. Transcriptions fill the gap so they don’t miss out.
  4. SEO! If your content is worth publishing (which it is) then it is worth making it accessible to everyone. Use SEO to reach everyone!

Basic vs Advanced Editing/Formatting


I will write the text exactly as I see it. I will not convert British to American English (for example). Formatting will be straightforward i.e. bolding headlines but not changing the font size.


Format to look exactly like the original (where possible and within the limitations of Microsoft Word). Convert English spelling (i.e. British to American) as I type and of course, fix punctuation and grammar.
