Three Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Use Online Transcription Services

Transcription tools

Transcription is one of the most common language services that businesses need. Whether you transcribe meetings, client phone calls, or even web content, transcription services save your business a lot of time and manpower. However, it is tempting to use free or very cheap online transcription services for your company. In today’s blog post, Akorbi talks about three reasons why you shouldn’t use these cheap online transcription tools. Instead, you should contact a professional agency.

1. Frustrating Interface and Software

When a transcription tool is either free or very cheap, it is because it has limited software capabilities or a low-grade interface. When you are looking for transcription help, you want a tool that accepts several file types and is easy to use. Better yet, find an agency that does all of that tedious work for you. Inexpensive online options make you struggle with cheap software interfaces that lack the functionality you need. This process costs you valuable labor and time that you could save through a company that offers high-quality transcription services.

2. Limited Storage Space

Another common problem with cheaper online transcription services is limited storage space. When you utilize an online tool, you typically create a new, free account with a limited amount of data storage. You can probably only upload a certain amount of content. Free accounts are usually limited to 1 to 3 hours’ worth of audio or video files. If you want a storage upgrade, you will likely pay a higher rate per minute compared to the cost of a quality, professional agency.

3. Lower Quality Work

At the end of the day, the biggest reason why you should avoid cheap, online transcription services is because the quality of their work is not as high as professional agencies. When recording hours’ worth of meetings or calls, you don’t want to comb through pages of transcribed content trying to edit and revise it. Utilizing a high-quality transcription service ensures that your company truly saves time by producing error-free transcribed content.
