Interview Recording Tips For Transcription

Our vast experience in transcription has enabled us to formulate certain tips to enhance audio quality and simplify the transcription process. When recording an interview business meeting or any other event with an intention of getting it transcribed, you can help make the transcription process easy, accurate and cost efficient. The following tips will help you to enhance your recording quality and save interview transcription times and costs.

  • Wherever possible, make use of Digital Recorders. They provide excellent sound quality that provides for easier transcription.
  • Before the actual Interview, always conduct a Test Recording by placing the microphone in the same place it would be kept during the interview. This way any problems with the recorder or with the placement of the recorder can be weeded out before the interview begins.
  • Always use original and high quality tapes for recording.
  • Use fresh batteries. Make sure the batteries are on full power.
  • Decide on a suitable Digital audio level and file type. If you are using a recorder with speed options, always use the fastest mode as this would give better sound quality.
  • Background noises are the biggest distraction for transcription. Minimize background sounds like doors closing/slamming, drone of fans/air conditioners, outside traffic, ticking of clocks etc.
  • For telephone interviews, use a telephone recording device that can record both sides of the conversation. Wherever possible, avoid using speaker-phones.

Follow these tips as much as possible and ensure better and accurate transcription by improving sound quality and minimizing incidental noise.
