The way businesses and individuals conduct conferences has changed dramatically.  Virtual conferences are standard procedure nowadays, and people worldwide depend on UberConference for stress-free, feature-rich conference calling.

Oftentimes conference hosts and participants will want to recall or refer to something said during a virtual conference. You don’t need to have a photographic memory, fortunately. An UberConference call transcript will provide you with a record of everything that was said during a conference. Whether you use human transcription or automated transcription, there are a number of ways to get an UberConference call transcript.

Human vs. Automated Transcription

If you prefer to use a more traditional method of obtaining an UberConference call transcript, you could use a human transcription service. If you’re imagining a courtroom stenographer sitting in and taking notes during your virtual conference, that’s not exactly how it works.

In reality, you’ll need to get a recording of your conference. Fortunately, UberConference allows you to record the audio portion of your conference call. It will be saved as an MP3-format audio file. MP3 files are easy to store and play back.

The human transcriber would then use that MP3 file as the source of the transcription. A potential consideration is that human transcription might take longer than a program that does it automatically. So, if you want an UberConference call transcript fast, human transcription might not be your preferred option.

On the other hand, human transcription might do certain things better, such as understanding accents and distinguishing between different conference speakers. Moreover, a human transcriber might be more adept at differentiating between same-sounding words, such as “there” and “they’re.” To really explore your options, you might elect to contact a company that offers both human and automated transcription services, and then choose the one that’s best for your particular needs.

How to Get a Transcript of UberConference Calls

Even if you’ve never done it before, getting your UberConference call transcript is actually a very simple process that just requires a few steps.

1. Record the Conference

Before the conference begins, you’ll want to learn how to record it and test it out with a few dry runs. As we’ve already discussed, UberConference allows you to record an audio MP3 file of your conference. At any point during the conference, you can start the recording process by simply clicking on the round recording button:

 

To end the recording, you can either click again on that same button, or you can just let the conference end. After the conference call is finished, you can find and listen to the audio MP3 recording of the conference very easily. Just click on it in the e-mail summary of the conference that’s sent to you afterwards:

Here’s an advanced tip: try a left-click to play the MP3 file now, or try a right-click and “Save As” to download the MP3 file to listen to it later as many times as you’d like.

UberConference will also allow you to access a download link in the Past Conference section of the platform:

 

The MP3 file download link is right there in the Conference Summary:

There you have it — you now have easy access to an audio recording of your virtual conference.

2. Transcribe the Conference

Now that you’ve got your audio file, it’s time to convert the recording into an UberConference call transcript. UberConference does offer this service, but users who want highly accurate transcripts may find that UberConference’s “voice intelligence” has limitations. To be honest, not all automated transcribers are equally adept and accurate, and UberConference’s automated transcription service may very well leave users wanting something more reliable.

To that end, you might consider using Rev’s transcription services, which can offer 99% accuracy for those important calls where you need that kind of accuracy. In fact, Rev offers both human and artificial-intelligence-powered automated transcription services.

The process really couldn’t be any simpler. After you’ve downloaded the audio file of your conference, just upload it to Rev by dragging and dropping the file or, alternatively, by clicking on the upload button and locating the file on your computer:

Alternatively, you could paste a link to a public web address — for instance, if you had the MP3 audio file stored in the cloud.

You can expect your UberConference call transcript to be delivered to you promptly after your order is placed. And if you’re wondering, you won’t have to worry about confidentiality: Rev has a strict policy on customer confidentiality, and all customer files are fully encrypted for maximum security.

And that’s it — now you’ve got your UberConference call transcript! Whether you choose a human transcriber or a technology-enhanced service, you can get a clean, accurate document of your conference — all the words, and no hassles.
