Overcast MAX #3: Max Transcribe

Wondering how using AI to automatically transcribe audio to text could rock your world?

Remember when transcription jobs meant typing out every word in a video or audio clip by hand in order to add subtitles? Not our favourite memory of “the good old days”!!

It was a slow, laborious, mundane and uninteresting task. However, it had to be done. 

Thank goodness AI transcription software has saved us from this nightmare!

Transcribe audio to text using AI

Nowadays, transcription is automated and effortless via the magic touch of artificial intelligence (AI). 

Max Transcribe uses the latest AI and Machine Learning (ML) to transcribe the audio content in a video, generating subtitles on the fly.

Case studies: transcribe audio to text

Call centre

Imagine how many hundreds of millions of minutes of customer interactions each year a call centre has. Now imagine how long it would take a typist to manually transcribe those calls. Using AI and ML, you can quickly generate accurate call transcriptions while also redacting sensitive data.

Multilingual video content

It’s not just movies that need to be translated into other languages. Nowadays, most enterprises are producing vast amounts of video content — and many want to reach potential customers in other countries. By using AI and ML that can translate content into many different languages and customize speech recognition, you’ll save your team a lot of time and yourself a lot of money.

Podcasts and radio

So, you have a great podcast or radio programme and you’d like as many people as possible to benefit from the content. But many listeners want to consume it in short segments. Plus, you need it to come up in search results. You can use AI / ML transcription to convert your audio streams into text for a reasonable cost. This allows you to quickly process live talk audio into consumable segments — as a result, you’ll get higher engagement.

Video Now Main Form of Content For Enterprises

“Video is now poised to become the main form of content that’s digested in the enterprise. The huge surge in video meetings was the first wave in the shift to the visual enterprise. The second wave that is arriving now and in 2022 is about the need to organise, optimise, and deliver visual content to users.” — Aragon Research Globe for Enterprise Video, 2022.

This demonstrates the need for providers to step forward with innovative technology that enables enterprises to create, manage and distribute video content. The key focus for enterprises is on customer experience and employee engagement.

The Role of Video in Digital Transformation

In 2020 workplaces as we knew them experienced massive unexpected disruption.

Enterprises found themselves faces with a need for rapid digital transformation when the pandemic necessitated employees to work remotely. Suddenly, colleagues and managers were not in the same room to share information or collaborate on team projects.

This led to much upheaval among workforces. However, a magic pill to cure those ills was close at hand: video!

Influencers With A Cause

Social media activism creates opportunities for grassroots movements to evolve and expand. Some of the best-known examples are the Ice Bucket Challenge, #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, which have all involved successful social media movements.

So, how do creators and influencers with a cause go about making a difference?

James Dean was a rebel without a cause, but nowadays social causes are top of mind for creators, according to a study by Adobe.

Does Being A Creator Make You Happy?

The words ‘social media’ and ‘mental health’ are not always happy bedfellows, so it’s a legitimate question to ask, “Does being a creator make you happy?”

It takes time and effort to be create content, distribute it, and build a community, so what impact does all of that effort have on a creator’s mental health?

Adobe’s ‘Creators In The Creator Economy’ global study shows that creative people are happy people!
