Recording and Transcribing a Speech

June 25th, 2012 · 3 Comments

I have given two speeches in recent times – one was at Columbia University in New York on Transforming India, and the other one was at an education conference in Delhi. On both occasions, I carried a small recorder with me so that I could record my speech. I then put up the audio (with a little bit of editing) on the blog. I also thought it would be a good idea to put the transcripts of the speeches. Reading is much easier than listening, though both have their own benefits.

I got the transcription done professionally by a freelancer. I then read through the transcript and made some minor edits. One tends to be a bit looser in speaking and that doesn’t read so well!

Since I will be travelling on vacation for the next couple weeks and won’t have much time to do writing, I thought it would be a good idea to put up both the transcripts of both the speeches in short parts. I will be back with some fresh writing once I am back.

    Hi Rajesh,

    I have this issue and was looking for some technology to do this for me. Do you know of any good software to transcribe a speech from an audio or video recording?

    Enjoy your vacation!

    Hi Rajesh, thanks but would really like to see the video of your talks rather than just audio. let me know if you can do that in future. thank you, Praveen
