Item Automatic Audio Transcription

Collections are incredibly diverse in terms of content as well as format. As such, it’s likely that your collection holds audio items, such as VHS, CD, cassette, MP3, or some other audio format.  

The Item Automated Audio Transcription option takes the audio from your items and transcribes every spoken word, to include who is speaking and what they say, converting this into a readable text format. This is particularly beneficial for audio histories and interview collections. 

Further, the software used to transcribe your audio also timestamps each and every word, turning it into searchable text content. Searches take the user directly to the given positon in the audio and play from that particular moment.
