Trascrivi.it. – Frequently Asked Questions.

The term environmental is used to refer to a recording where the microphone is not placed at a short distance from the speaker’s mouth, but is rather inside the room or – more precisely – the environment where the speaker is. In these cases, in addition to receiving the speaker’s voice in a less clear manner, the microphone also picks up all the other sounds in the environment (background noise, rustling, other voices, coughing, mobile phone ring tones, etc.). Therefore the signal of interest is both distant and disturbed.
The elements that contribute to a reduction in the quality of the audio recording to be transcribed are as follows:
- environmental audio recording
- presence of background noise
- presence of background music
- overlaying of several voices
- presence of non-native speakers
- presence of sector-related terminology or specialist language
- broad use by the speaker of proper nouns, abbreviations and foreign words
The transcription will be affected if your audio file contains all of the above or a large number of them.
Generally speaking, we can work on any audio format: mp3, wav, ogg, wma, avi, mp4, mov, wmv.
However, preliminary checking on a sample lasting a few minutes makes it possible to ascertain whether the transcription is possible or not.
Yes, of course. In this case, delivery of the audio recording in digital format may also be requested.
