Anyone who dictates, into their phone or a specialist dictation machine, needs their words typed out into the appropriate format and therefore will need a transcription service.
You could transcribe your words yourself but this would be a tedious process without the appropriate transcription machine.
If you have a transcription machine it will still be pretty slow going unless you are a trained audio typist with a minimum typing speed of 80 wpm.
If you do not type at 80 wpm and do not have a transcription machine then you need a transcription service!
Your transcription service could in effect be your secretary at the office (if you have one) but this may not be the best use of a secretary’s time.
True secretaries are not typists, they will organise your business day for you and should not be inundated with piles of dictation.
So, the answer to the question ‘who needs a transcription service?’ is anyone who dictates and wants their words put to paper in the most time and cost-efficient manner possible.
