The Guardian today contains an amusing aside on the use of speech‑recognition software for transcription. Purchased to reduce the risk of repetitive‑strain injury, the author writes that it ‘got every sixth word wrong, which meant you’d swear in exasperation, and it would think you had finished each sentence by saying, “Offer fox ache”, and type that in too.’ Global Lingo never uses machine transcription, favouring trained writers dedicated to complete accuracy and fluency.
