Well, for one, it expands the audience of your podcast.
You may find yourself wondering, ‘why would a podcast ever need to be transcribed?’
That’s a fair question to ask, given that podcasts are focused on the spoken opinions or ideas of the hosts much like traditional radio.
However, despite this fact, there are multiple reasons why it is a good idea to use a podcast transcription software.
Firstly, you might wish to optimize your website for search engines (SEO).
A transcribed text from your podcast audio could help search engines like Google and Bing to better access your content. If you only have your podcast in an audio format on your website, search engines will not be able to understand what your content is about.
By using a podcast transcription software you will start ranking on relevant keywords and thereby getting more traffic and listeners to your podcasts which might result in an uplift in your revenue.
Secondly, there are many individuals who may be interested in the content or opinions that your podcast offers, but for whatever reason, are unable to hear the audio.
They could, for instance, be deaf or have another hearing disability.
Having a readable and accessible transcription of the podcast content will allow podcasters to reach such individuals rather easily.
Another reason for using a podcast transcription service is the ease of reference and access to previously spoken information.
Many podcasts use continuing formats and topics over the course of several episodes.
Because of this, hosts may want to have a quick method to reference topics discussed earlier in order to keep continuity and ensure that they do not cover topics already discussed.
It’s also great to reference things and arguments previously mentioned.
Searching through entire audio or video files can be tedious, whereas searching through a text document is far more efficient.
This means that podcasters can log their discussions and episodes in a much more ‘search-friendly’ way.
