In such a short space of time and space, it will not be possible to list all the productive uses of today’s modern transcription equipment. This, of course, is not the fault of this article because the uses for today’s digital transcription equipment are that numerous. For now though, a brief overview for both informational and motivational purposes can be utilized. It might also be useful to begin with the briefest explanation of what exactly a transcription device is. To transcribe is relatively similar to carrying out a translation but it is not exact in its similarity.
When you are doing a translation, you are interpreting the meaning of one language, in its full context, and transferring your interpretation to the chosen other language. When you are carrying out a transcription, you are usually recording an original conversation, interview or dictation and transferring it to a well-maintained and perfectly understood format for both reading and listening purposes. Corporate secretaries who are tasked with recording the minutes of management and board meetings will be using transcription equipment.
Accredited and in the field investigative journalists must have a digital transcription device as an important part of their toolkit. Those employed in the legal professions need digital translation equipment in order to be precise in the way they interpret law and present evidence. Architects and construction contractors will always have good use for a portable digital transcription device. This allows them to record important aspects of a conversation with a client whereby all outside noise is blocked out of the recording and digitization allows for focus solely on the words being recorded.
As a portable device, so minute these days, it is also a convenient tool to carry about without any encumbrances.
