August 13, 2013

Managed crowdsourcing company, CrowdSource, introduces transcription solutions through Transcribe.com.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 13, 2013

CrowdSource, a leader in the crowdsourcing industry that works with national clients, such as BazaarVoice, Citysearch, Dictionary.com, Klip and ToysRUs, has launched Transcribe.com, adding audio and video transcription solutions to its growing list of managed crowdsourcing solutions.

Transcribe.com is a transcription company that utilizes crowdsourcing to provide fast and accurate audio and video transcripts for businesses, legal departments and academics.

In recent years, there has been a rise in consumer consumption of digital video and audio content. Although widely used, these formats present a challenge to search engines and to users who access content across multiple devices. Transcription addresses both of these challenges by creating text-based versions of video or audio files that are accessible to search engines and users on any device. Transcribe.com aims to meet the growing demand for fast and affordable transcription solutions by utilizing its crowd of over 10,000 qualified transcription specialists.

“We've spent the last two years extending the capabilities of our crowd management platform and growing our workforce,” said Stephanie Leffler, CEO of CrowdSource. “We've proven we're capable of creating content at scale with exceptional quality, and now that we are ready to expand into additional verticals, transcription is a natural fit.”

As a CrowdSource company, Transcribe.com cultivates a trained and skilled workforce of US-based transcription specialists to complete projects with speed, quality and scale. Through testing and quality control, Transcribe.com delivers quality text files with a 98+ percent accuracy rate every time.
