Also, although we don’t limit the size of the file that you upload to our service if you need to upload files that are larger than 500 MB.

 Please, keep in mind that it can take much longer to transcribe larger files and you’ll need a stable Internet connection to complete the upload.

How can you improve the quality of your audio recordings?

Low-quality audio recording typically has a lot of distracting noises or issues with volume. You as well as the transcription software service will find it difficult to make sense of a low-quality audio recording which will affect the accuracy of the transcription.

Bad quality example

So, if possible, try to record indoors and reduce the background noise even further by keeping windows closed and switching off machinery. It’s even better if you can record in a sound booth.

Also, be sure to remind your speakers to speak slowly and clearly and place the recording device in the middle between all of the speakers. It’s best to invest in an external microphone as the built-in ones can’t guarantee the best quality and will record too many undesirable sounds.

Good quality example

Try to create a test recording first. This is even more important if you’re using recording equipment for the first time or recording in an unfamiliar setting. 

We trust that Audext will save you time and money. So, leave your next transcription project to Audext!
