3 Benefits Of Having Your Company's Meetings And Lectures Remotely Transcribed

by Priscilla Terry

If you aren't already having your company's meetings and lectures remotely transcribed, there are many benefits you're likely missing out on. Here are just a few that are worth your consideration:

Include Those Who Can't Hear

Having your meetings and lectures remotely transcribed will allow those who cannot hear to participate in your events in real-time. If a person is hearing impaired or doesn't have access to audio equipment, it can be tough to keep up with what's happening in an important meeting if they can't hear what is going on.

Luckily, people can keep up with exactly what is being said by accessing the transcriptions as they are being created. Your transcriber will be online in real-time listening to your lectures and meetings via any method of your choosing and will record everything that is being said word for word. The transcription can be displayed on the computers of anyone who is attending your events virtually and in-person as your speakers talk so people don't have to read what is happening after the fact.

Ensure Clear Communication

Investing in remote transcription services will also help ensure that everyone stays on the same page both during and after meetings and lectures. There won't be any question as to exactly what someone says, and any questions or concerns that are addressed during your events will be recorded so participants can easily refer to them after the fact.

Making a transcription available will ensure that nobody can claim they didn't understand a topic that was discussed or misunderstood a new business practice that has been adopted. And you'll be able to hold people more accountable for the way they use the information they're provided with during your business events.

Save Time on Follow Ups

Transcriptions of your meetings and lectures can come in handy if you want to create training manuals, study materials, or even business plans using some of the information that is shared at your lectures and events. You can use transcriptions from a lecture as an outline to create a new training manual for employees without having to spend time actually creating the outline from scratch.

And your transcriptions can also be presented to trainees as part of their training program, which will save your trainers time and you money before all is said and done.
