TranscriptionStar announces integration with YouTube!
Creating and editing a video in itself is a huge and meticulous task. And when you are a serious YouTuber with a growing channel, managing it becomes an endeavor that’s unforgiving at best of times. But you go through all that, because you wish to make your channel popular and reach out to as many people as possible.
So viewer-traffic drives your channel right? Then why hold it back!
By simply adding captions you are boosting the likelihood of viewers watching your videos to the completion by up to 80%. Isn’t that unbelievable? You better believe it.
Captioning isn’t all about just a text version of the audio. Well, basically that’s what it is, but, it doesn’t stop with being just that. It goes way beyond. It actually addresses a lot of barriers that could otherwise be crippling to your videos.
For example; a person with hearing difficulty, a person who needs a little help with the language, a person who likes visualization of the words the speaker says, a person who prefers to read along, or a person who watches your videos on a train, all of them benefit from captioning. And of course for SEO boost.
So to begin captioning your YouTube videos, you may have known of the two methods.
A) Using YouTube’s very own automated captioning service:
YouTube’s default “automated” captioning service is something that can be used as a padding when you don’t have any other options to settle with, but it’s just a filler at its best.
You get it for free!
If you are willing to spend time editing the scripts then you could benefit from it; see how you can upload transcripts to your YouTube videos.
Or it’s suitable if you aren’t particular about captioning accuracy
Since YouTube uses voice recognition tool to offer you transcripts, you often times end up with hilarious captions
Also, the automated tool cannot differentiate between multiple speakers, emotions or background noises.
And it still requires more years of development before it can be used for anything close to a professional usage.
B) Using professional transcription services:
So, if you are looking to professionally caption your YouTube videos, then working with a transcription company is your most viable solution. That is, unless you want to sit down and do the transcribing yourself.
Your captions are precise and perfect for a professional use
So you won’t need to put in any time editing the captions and so save a lot of time as a dedicated YouTuber. Time that can be used better, like to create more videos!
Of course it will cost you
You will have to manage your files between multiple platforms, especially to keep track of the progress
And, also you will be sulking while uploading/downloading your videos, captions, transcripts, etc. back and forth for the umpteenth time.
Yet, YouTubers opt for professional transcription services despite these shortcomings because the pluses outweigh the problems.
C) TranscriptionStar’s integration of YouTube API:
But now TranscriptionStar promises you a solution that will nullify these shortcomings but keep intact all the benefits. So, would you like to know about that?
