CastingWords is an organization that gives jobs to skilled people to convert short audio files to text. The process of doing so is called transcribing. The person converting the audio to text is called a transcriber.
What is transcribing?
In more depth, transcribing is the process of converting audio or video content into written form. This can be done by listening to the audio or video and typing out the words as they are spoken, or by using specialized transcription software that converts the audio or video into text automatically.
What are transcripts used for?
Transcription is often used for a variety of purposes, such as creating written records of meetings, interviews, or other events, or making written versions of audio or video content available to people who prefer to read rather than listen or watch.
Transcription can be a time-consuming process, especially for large or complex audio or video files, and may require the use of specialized transcription software or the services of trained transcribers.
