What is the benefit of transcribing my podcast?
There are primarily two key benefits in having using audio transcription to get your podcast transcribed.
- Accessibility: Having transcription on a podcast broadens its accessibility to those who are learning English or who are hard of hearing; giving your user the flexibility to read the content when they don’t have access to the audio.
- SEO (Search Engine Optimization): Transcribing your podcast adds that magical layer that allows search engines like Google to crawl through the text, which makes the content of your podcast searchable.
Say hello to better SEO
Did you know that the text in Subtitles and Closed Captions can be crawled and indexed by search engines?
Publishing a the transcript alongside your podcast, or uploading captions to your video podcast can boost your SEO. The transcript together with the podcast complement each other and will boost your podcast’s ranking. It for exactly this reason why you see the most popular videos on YouTube videos all have closed captions, the same goes for podcasts.
Who uses Podcast Transcription?
Anyone putting content online... Aside from the obvious, in that it can make your podcast or video more accessible as text; it has now become common practice by those involved in podcasts to publish the transcript alongside the video or podcast, in order to get the added benefit of both accessibility & SEO.
Transcription for editing. Editors can find the core content quickly, to lift key quotes from the audio. Transcription allows new listeners to skim-read the audio before listening which saves them time – adding real value to your podcast episodes.

What are Automated Captions? Won’t I get my own transcriber?
Our transcription service is carried out by our skilled team. We know that only the personal touch is capable of giving you the accuracy you need. The automated component applies only to how the transcript is matched to the action on screen.
Can’t I just use YouTube’s automated subtitle generator?
YouTube Studio does use an automated Speech to Text tool to generate subtitles. However, its lack of accuracy can diminish the impact of your message.
Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) achieves best-case accuracy of 85% with most falling significantly short of this.
However, if you prefer, we can supply you with a raw transcript which Youtube can convert into an SRT file by running its own alignment process.
I have an important deadline coming up, how quickly can you get my captions ready?
We have flexible turnarounds to suit your needs and budget with 12 hour, 24 hour, 48 hour and 7-day options available.
