How Searchie Transcripts Benefit You And Your Audience

Searchie features help improve accuracy AND pair our speech engine (Rev) with tens of thousands of hours of human-transcribed content across several different industries, topics, and accents. As a result, you will see significant improvements to your automated transcripts.

Alright, this sounds impressive, but how does it affect your online business? 

We’re walking you through our top 3 steps (and we threw in a few bonuses) to make sure you’re using Searchie Transcripts like a pro. 

Step 1: Leverage The Transcript Editor To Make  Edits To Your Searchie Transcripts

Searchie allows users to edit transcripts in case there are any mistakes or if any changes need to be made. The Transcript Editor’s features are easy to use, and we will show you exactly how. 

More importantly, you’re able to play the video back, view the transcript as well as any “low-confidence words” that Searchie picks up (these are written in red), download the TXT or SRT File of your transcription, use forward and back buttons, adjust video speed and so much more!

For a step-by-step guide on how to use the Transcript Editor, take a look at this Searchie help article here in our Help Center.

Step 2: Customize Your Vocabulary To Increase Searchie Transcripts Accuracy

Quick note, make sure this is set before uploading ANY videos! This feature won’t make changes after your media is uploaded, so be sure to add in your Default Language and Custom Vocabulary first.

But wait, what is Custom Vocabulary? We’re glad you asked… 

You can tell Searchie how to process speech in our system by creating a Custom Vocabulary. 

Your custom vocab should include words that aren’t common or may have a different spelling than usual. This could include industry terms (Doctor’s we’re looking at you… Dimethylamidophenyldimethylpyrazolone), your own name or business name, acronyms, and more. 

Every time a new file is transcribed, it will take this list of words into account and allow Searchie to become more familiar with them. This tool is especially useful for unrecognizable words or more uncommonly used words, as Searchie might interpret a more popular word rather than the word you actually said.

Access the custom vocabulary by navigating to your Profile Settings and selecting Transcriptions.

For example, adding the word ‘Cerci’ to the list will replace the word ‘Searchie’ whenever this is said in a video. Similarly, adding the name ‘Elise’ will help distinguish it from ‘At least.’ 

It can also help Searchie identify domain-specific language if the terms you’ve said aren’t being properly transcribed/printed out for you.
