Educational Transcription Services
Educational Transcription-a primer:
Educational Transcription refers to the transcription of lectures, seminars, discussions etc. held in institutes and universities. The transcription is used for educational purposes and hence the name Educational Transcription.
Our Educational Transcription Expertise:
The services under this category fall under two main classes, namely real time educational transcription and non-real time educational transcription. Audio recording and related Technology and affordability have brought enormous opportunity for today's learners. Recorded class room lectures and focus group sessions in .universities are invaluable assets to students. Transcribing classroom sessions are very useful and allow communication access during classes for deaf and hard of hearing people, as well as those with visual, physical or learning difficulties.We transcribe variety of subjects handled in classroom sessions. This saves great deal of time in taking notes in the classrooms. It helps students to concentrate on listening and querying masters.We help students by recommending professional recorders and transmitting over the internet. We also guide students on their telephonic interview set up and recording.
Real time educational transcription:
Real time educational transcription is primarily used by the deaf and hard of hearing students to understand the on goings in the classroom. Imagine for a while that you are a deaf student studying in a mainstream school. The teacher is carrying on with her lecture while the students are all indulging in interactions about what the teacher is saying. Alas, you cannot hear what anyone of them says nor can you take part in the discussions. This is not uncommon for deaf and hard of hearing students as a statistic points out that 75% of deaf and hard of hearing people have to do with studying in normal schools where other normal kids study. With little help from teaching staff in the form of deserved extra attention and the study material being created keeping in mind the classroom lectures, the hearing impaired students are unable to learn effectively in their schooling years, which can cause irreversible damage to their future prospects.We can provide such students with real time education transcription services. We provide meaning-for-meaning transcription rather than verbatim transcription in this special service. The difference between both of them is that in verbatim transcription there is word-toâword transcription of audio content, including all false starts, umms, aahs and other important background sounds like the flying of an aero plane. On the other hand, meaning-toâmeaning transcription only transcribes the meaning of the recordings but does so by suitably shortening the content. A meaning-for-meaning transcription also adds non-verbal data that have special meanings, like facial expressions or stresses on certain words by the speaker. We will provide real time transcription for online lectures. Institutes willing to provide this facility to their students should conduct lectures with professors speaking through microphones. Our transcriptionist will receive the audio feed and get the audio transcribed. Your students will receive the transcriptions on their computer screens.A fully edited form of the transcript can also be procured on demand. Such a transcript will be made available within 24 hours of the lecture.
Non-real time educational transcription:
Non real-time transcription service includes webcast and videotape transcription of classroom lectures and seminars. On receiving the webcast link or the videotape, our transcriptionists get going with the transcription of the audio content. If you want your audio / video files captioned, then log on to our server and upload the file for captioning. We accept a range of file formats like mp3, wav, mov, wma, wmv, mp4 etc. The formatting will be done as per the client's wishes. The client will be given a login id from where he can upload content to be transcribed as well as access and manage older transcripts.
