On average, a 1-hour interview takes 5 hours to manually transcribe an audio to text. Happy Scribe can save you up to 70% of that time.

Find specific information easily

Finding specific information in a transcript is much quicker than listening to long audio files. Simply do a keyword search using commands.

More efficient storage and distribution

Transcribed word documents are easier to store and distribute, ensuring everyone in the team can access the transcripts, wherever they are.

Write quicker

With the text already written out for you, a transcribed interview allows you to easily copy and paste quotes into your article.

Easier interpretation of content

It is much easier to find story connections and reoccuring themes across multiple interviews when skimming and scanning the written transcript in word. An impossible task if you are just listening to audio clips.

Source of reference for future material

Transcription provides a source of reference while conducting follow-up interviews. It can also be reused draw new conclusions for later articles as well.

Can improve your interview technique

Looking at a written record of your interview gives you a chance to see how often you cut your interviewer off and may show that you aren’t asking concise questions. A self-analysis of your style could make you a more professional interviewer and nab you a better story.
