American, NH ( November 11, 2012 - Transcription is the verbatim conversion of data from one media - source to another media - destination. This is the basic definition, we can draw the understanding that audio transcription is about converting data from one media - source is in audio format to another media - destination which is the digital document which contains words as they are spoken in the source.

Audio Format

With most audio typing service companies, the format in which the audio is shipped out to them is a non-issue. They are more than happy to receive the data in more than dozens of standard audio formats that are in existence today. Sometimes it makes you wonder why there are so many audio formats anyway, because a single audio format should suffice everybody's audio requirements. The logic is the same as there are different types of clothes for different weather.

Each audio format has its own benefit and its own drawbacks. Eventually, the audio format decision comes down to the amount of voice data that needs to be packed into the file versus the amount of accuracy the client expects from the data. As always, it comes down to cost. When you choose a file format that takes up more space, common sense would suggest that there is more room to pack more detail. This is natural, sort of like, with a big office a company can afford to have more employees who appreciate the excess space.

However, with a file format that is too spacious, there comes the cost associated with it. The more space the audio data takes up, the more expensive will be their data storage associated cost. So, depending on what is the kind of budget they have for their data storage, companies will go out of their way to choose an audio format that takes as little space as possible without compromising on the integrity of the data that is stored in it.

Data Conversion

Now, any typing services company would understand this because they are in the business of helping other businesses. So, you will find that they have all the equipment in place to convert the given source audio into their desired data. This may sound a bit technical; the process of converting audio is an overhead that is unavoidable.

Conversion may not even remain optional because sometimes audio might be stored in analog format like tapes. Companies who are finally making the transition from analog data storage to digital storage would want the transcription service company to do this analog to digital conversion and then proceed with the transcription activity. Of course, one can always find dedicated analog to digital conversion companies but the last thing any company wants has to deal with multiple companies for a single task.

When a company starts dealing with two companies for what is obviously a single flow activity, they stand to lose the benefits they planned to gain by outsourcing their audio transcription service. Dealing with a single company means less paperwork, less face to face discussions and less payment related overhead. So, if a company is looking to get their audio transcription done, then they have to go with one that provides that entire range of audio transcription services
