Webinars have grown in popularity in the last few years, along with the general growth of all types of video conferencing. A webinar is a live virtual event that takes place online, usually using video conferencing platforms and webinar software. 

They are usually educational and involve lots of dialogue between the presenter and the participants through chat boxes, Q&A features, and questions asked directly to the presenter.

If you host a webinar, it’s a good idea to get an accurate webinar transcript and send it to your attendees after the webinar concludes. This is great for people with hearing disabilities, and anyone who wants to search the raw text of the webinar to find and revisit sections of the webinar.

Pro tip: You can transcribe your webinar, and upload it to your website as a blog post. This provides you with content, indexable by search engines to help your SEO marketing efforts.
