Our machine-learning robots are pretty neat, and greatly speed up the process of transcription by doing a large share of the work for you.
You'll always need to do some editing to polish your transcript to perfection but here are some tips you can follow, to create more accurate transcripts.
1. VOCAB BUILDER
This feature allows you to create a custom dictionary for Trint to use. You can add in proper names, industry-specific terms, and a lot more! Anything that Trint typically misses can be added to the list.
2. AVOID BACKGROUND NOISE
Background noise, music, street sounds, hiss, echoes, or distant microphones will all impact the quality of the transcript. If you can control the environment, choose a quiet place. In a noisy room, you want to keep the microphone a few inches from the speaker(s) if possible. With poor quality audio, you will often be able to hear a static or hissing noise. Try focusing on all of the sounds in your audio apart from human speech; is there a significant amount of extra sound? If so, you may want to try and improve the audio before running it through Trint.
3. MAKE SURE THE MICROPHONE IS CLOSE TO THE SPEAKER(S)
If there are many people in the room and one microphone in the center, this may reduce the audio quality for each speaker. However, a mobile phone recording a conversation between two people in a quiet room should be fine. Try to ensure that each speaker is close to a microphone.
4. LISTEN FOR ECHO
A hollow sounding room will degrade the recording quality.
