Audio typing is a thing of the past…
Absolutely not! So, in this Blog, I’m going to tell you how I discovered that audio typing had gone Digital, how it can save small businesses and freelancers a huge amount of time and money, whilst bringing organisation to any work place. This absolute gem, and arguably a forgotten office tool, has been fantastically re-vamped and it’s just become one of the most exciting services I offer at Virtual Office Box. Digital Transcription.
Why do I like this service so much?
It’s been three decades since providing audio typing to the Manager at a High Street Bank.
Director’s identity has been protected!
Subsequently, I provided audio typing as a Personal Assistant in London to an ambitious Director. It was fun to throw on the earphones and type his notes – occasionally with some hilarious revelations. He would take his voice recorder everywhere and often record between meetings, to form an ‘account’ of his day which he could refer back to at short notice once typed. Within this recording he might request “please send an email to…” or “can you set up a meeting with…” etc. It was a genius and innovative use of audio.
Digital transcription has become sought after
Since founding Virtual Office Box, I considered the services to offer my clients and was highly excited to learn Audio typing had become digital and ‘Digital Transcription’ was a ‘thing’! It was like being reacquainted with an old friend and I promptly added this to my niche services. Not just because I enjoy it, but because I understand its flexibility as a tool – even in my teens, twenties, and even now (age withheld) it can be so valuable to many businesses, if only they knew it’s worth.
The not-so-big delivery
It has been a few months since I took delivery of my new Olympus software, a pedal and earphones. I admit to begin with I was startled how small my package was – with no audio cassette player it seemed slightly odd! But it did give me a buzz to know these items were transportable and would compliment my remote Virtual Office services. I could transcribe audio from any location, and my Clients could record and securely send their audio again, from any location.
