Reasons to Convert M4A to Text
Audio recordings are often used as a means to record meetings, lectures, interviews or any instance when a record of what is being said may be required or desired. Technology advances make this the fastest and easiest method to ensure nothing is missed, unlike taking notes by hand. However, it is usually much more convenient to use a written transcript of the recording to reference specific points, or if what was said needs to be distributed amongst numerous people.
A written transcript may be easily scanned for a specific sentence or statement, something not easily done with an audio file. In some cases, an individual may want a transcript that has been “cleaned up” removing any profanities or vulgarities that may have inadvertently been used by the speaker. Ease of recording has actually increased the need for audio transcription services that can help to translate audio to text rather than decreased it.
There are many reasons why you may find yourself in need of audio to text conversion:
- A very important audio file got corrupted and the words are barely understandable. A professional can easily turn it into a clear and accurate text document.
- You have your own podcast and want to turn it into a blog as well. Doing it manually, however, takes way too much time.
- You’ve got dozens of lections recorded that need to be turned into a Word document.
- Or may be you are a journalist who has an interview recording that needs to be transcribed.
Convert M4A to Text Online
When you need an audio file transcribed from m4a to text, the internet is an obvious choice as the first place to check about having a transcription done. Having a transcription done online removes the need to physically carry a recording somewhere, saving time and effort. Online transcription services basically fall into two different categories:
- Online conversion using the software. This could be through a service or a browser app. An app essentially takes you to a conversion software service site. The advantage of using software to convert m4a to text is speed. A 10 or 15-minute recording may take only minutes before a transcription is completed. The biggest disadvantage is accuracy. Often a transcription barely resembles what was said on a recording. The difference in voices such as accents and tonal quality create errors. The software also can’t pick up on context or slang terms. If accuracy is needed this is a poor choice.
- Online conversion using a “live” transcriber. This involves uploading an audio file to the service where a real person performs the actual transcription. A person can distinguish between accents and different sounding voices and understand the context a word is being used in. To convert m4a to text accurately this is the best option available.
Choosing the Correct Online Service to Convert M4A to Text
