How to automatically transcribe meeting minutes

Meeting transcription using automated transcription technology

Now here’s a thought: you’re due to attend a meeting that will most likely last an hour or two. Already that sounds dreadful if you’re not a fan of meetings! And then you remember that you’re responsible for taking the minutes of said meeting and your hands start cramping up at just the thought of it! But fear not as there’s a simple solution available that will save you hours and is not as expensive as you think it might be! Using automated transcription software such as Go Transcribe, taking minutes by hand will be a thing of the past.

Step 1- Record the meeting

Online web software such as Zoom, Webex, Google meetings will give you the option to record the meeting from start to finish. For face-to-face meetings, you’ll need a good quality microphone placed in a convenient place around the majority of the speakers. It is also important to make sure that the mic is multi-directional, which will ensure that the voices of each speaker will be picked up clearly resulting in good quality audio, which in turn will result in a more accurate transcript.

Step 2- Automatically transcribe the meeting

Once the meeting is finished, locate the recording and simply upload it to Go Transcribe. We support all of the common file types. If you don’t have a Go Transcribe account, you can create one here. You will then receive your transcript in a matter of minutes. It really is as simple as that.

Step 3- Edit and share

Once the automated transcript arrives in your inbox, you can review, edit and correct the minor errors using Go Transcribe’s built-in editor and once you are happy with it, you can easily share it privately with whomever you like.

A fast, easy, and inexpensive way to automatically transcribe meeting minutes leaving you with more time to concentrate on the finer things in life.
