Transcription is the process of converting any kind of audio or visual media into a written document. That includes any kind of file, including interviews, movies, and your best friend's 10-minute long Whatsapp audio.

You’re probably wondering how transcription can help you or your business. The answer is simple: It benefits both SEO and accessibility, which are two of the most important aspects of running a website.

Transcription is essential for SEO because it makes your content more accessible to search engines by breaking down language barriers. For example, if you have a video that discusses how to use certain products or services on your site, the search engines will be able to understand what those products are without having to watch the entire video themselves. This means that people who don’t understand your native language can find information about what you offer through search results rather than having trouble accessing your content due solely because they don’t speak the same language as you do.

In addition to helping with SEO, transcription also makes sure people with disabilities can easily access all parts of your website—even if they're unable to hear audio recordings well enough on their own computer systems because they might not have hearing aids/cochlear implants yet (or ever).
