Verbatim transcripts are special in their accuracy. The transcribed text contains each and every word and utterance in the audio recording, such as "yeah," "uh," and "hmm."

Transcription is a transformative process that involves turning speech into text. This conversion can be in audio to text or video to text, but the important part here is the conversion of speech into written content. Transcription can come in different formats, but let's talk about verbatim transcription.

Verbatim transcription turns all spoken words into text in a live recording or audio file. A verbatim transcript contains filler words, false beginnings, grammatical errors, and other verbal cues to provide a helpful context of the recorded scenario. There are two different types of verbatim transcription:

Clean Verbatim

Intelligent verbatim transcription records content without false starts, pauses, and extra speech that detract from the intended content of the speech. It gives you a neat script. This type of transcription focuses on tidying up what was said, not how or in what context.

Full Verbatim

Verbatim transcription records all words, including all false starts and errors, but removes breaks and repetitions for readability. Filler words such as "uh" and "ah" are out of the question for this type of literal transcription. It records every utterance in the speech. It's the best option for understanding the true essence of what was said in any context.

When Is Verbatim Transcription Important?

Verbatim transcripts provide context that edited transcripts do not. A true verbatim transcript includes non-speech sounds, so you can understand focus groups betters or cite sources. This type of speech-to-text conversion is especially useful when requesting legal transcriptions. There are several benefits of verbatim transcription. For example, it can work as objective evidence of something that happened. This kind of transcription helps you understand the emotional states and thought processes behind spoken words. Consider this, in audio files of police interrogations, verbal pauses and fillers may provide insight into a person's behavior. Before requesting a transcript from a service provider, it is essential to consider the type of transcript you need. So, why transcribe verbatim? Here are several instances where it is important to have a file transcribed verbatim:

Legal documents
Legal Documents
Courts will only accept verbatim transcripts as evidence or for investigation in court. The linguistic details included in some of the retrieved information can significantly impact the final outcome of a case. For courts, the content of statements, including other noises, fillers, and misspellings, is vital to establish the point of view of a case.
Research and focus groups
Research and Focus Group Studies
Understanding how people in focus groups respond to words and non-verbal sounds can help better understand how they think about the research topic. For example, hesitation in using fillers such as "hmm" when answering a question may indicate that the subject has concerns about an issue.
Direct Quoting
When quoting a person, whether online or offline, you should use their exact words. In this case, you can filter out non-speech noise, but you must be sure to capture the speaker's words exactly as they are said to avoid contextual errors and misunderstandings.
Qualitative Research
Qualitative research data seeks to capture the meaning and perception of an interview and the context in which it occurred. Verbatim transcription in qualitative research provides scripts that are easier to read and skim compared to audio files.
