Frequently Asked Questions

Video to text transcription is the process of converting a video into a text file. From journalists needing to select a quote for their article from a recent interview, to businessmen needing a written record of a meeting, to a student wanting study notes from a lecture, there are plenty of scenarios where having a text file is more convenient than a video recording.

There are three main methods to do so; doing it yourself (DIY), using an automatic transcription software, or using a human transcription service. Happy Scribe offers all three options.
