When we’ve written about YouTube optimization in the past, one of the keys was having a detailed description. YouTube doesn’t machine transcribe and interpret the verbiage in your video (yet), so relying on the information you detail in your video description is still critical.
How Speechpad works
- Create an account – In order to get transcriptions of your audio or video files you’ll first need to create an account. Creating an account takes less than 30 seconds; name, email address, and password. That’s it.
- Upload your files – After you’ve created your account, you can immediately upload files directly from your computer or point to files already online. You can upload files one at a time or as many as you’d like in a single upload. They currently support the following audio and video file formats: aac, aif, aiff, amr, au, avi, cda, dct, dss, gsm, flac, flv, m4a, m4v, mpeg, mpg, mid, mov, mp2, mp3, mp4, mpga, ogg, raw, shn, sri, video, vox, wav, wma, and wmv.
- Place your order – After you’ve uploaded your files all you need to do is let them know when you’d like your transcriptions done. They offer three turnaround time options: One Week ($1.00/minute), 48 Hours ($1.50/minute) and 24 Hours ($2.50/minute)
The faster you’d like your transcriptions done, the more it costs; no surprise there. Regardless of turnaround time, you will always know EXACTLY how much each transcription will cost before you place your order. There are no hidden fees, period.
