Job Description for Transcriber

A transcriber is a person who creates a written record of conversations, meetings, and audio and video recordings. The transcriber will provide clearly formatted sentences and paragraphs that allow the audio content to be read. This is especially important for persons in the business world because written content can be absorbed faster and distributed more easily than audio content. Transcribers may work for dedicated transcription companies that provide these services for business, or they may be part of offices that do transcription for law firms involved in depositions. Museums and historical archives may also use transcribers to create easily accessible versions of fragile and non-portable historic documents and journals.
