Legal transcription technology is fast evolving and one may expect it to some day become so perfect that transcription may not require any human intervention what so ever. While most repetitive jobs are done much better by a computer, there is I believe certain common sense logic that only a human brain can apply and comprehend. Transcription speech recognition software that converts voice into text is already available in the market but cannot be totally relied upon. We have quite often heard such software based transcription coming up with highly ridiculous results. today it can at the most help a transcription professional do the work faster. But where ever perfection in transcription is not required the software based transcription may come in very handy.
The different types of equipment that may be used while legal transcription today include,
- Dictation equipment (cassette based or digital)
- Digital transcription
- Cassettes based transcription
- Dictaphones or transcribe stations
- Desktop microphones
- Audio mixers
- Multi channel conference recorders
- Telephone dictation equipment
- Digital voice recorders
- Footswitch /controls
The legal transcription industry is also full of transcription software of different kinds. These include software for dictation management, counting of lines, spelling check software, transcription software, dictation software, encryption software, text expansion software, speech recognition and software for managing and moving various documents/files.
