What is an audio typist?

3 weeks ago

An audio typist is a specialist who types speech via headphones and a pedal attached to a transcription system.

In the old days small tapes were used but now dictators use a digital machine or even a smartphone.

And thank goodness – no more snapped tape, re-threading cassettes or accidentally deleting instead of rewinding before transcribing!

The speech goes in the ears and out the fingers in quite a majestic way.

The pedal is in effect the start/pause ‘button’ but as controlled by your foot (much like driving an automatic car, using one foot only), allowing the audio typist to type continuously by controlling how much speech is heard at one time.

A professional audio typist can control this so the typists fingers are continually moving over the keyboard while their foot gently moves up and down to allow a flow of speech through the headphones.

It really is an art form and take some practice to get this beautiful flow going.
