Beey’s users are well-represented in the journalism industry. One of them, Radka Wallerová, works as editor at Seznam zprávy and regularly uses Beey to transcribe interviews. She has been working as a journalist for many years. She told us about the first time she met our current president and what he was drinking at the time, how journalism has changed over the years, and what aspects of her job she doesn’t enjoy.
We are constantly striving to improve Beey so that the resulting transcripts are as accurate as possible, and so that our users can save as much time as possible during the subsequent editing. It is important that Beey can recognize all the words that appear in the recordings, which is why every morning we perform a dictionary update, adding new words from the previous day.
Equally important, however, is having a good quality recording as the input, and this is something that you can ensure by using suitable recording equipment. There is a wide selection of microphones available on the market, so how do you choose the one that’s right for you?

Not only will your content become more accessible for anyone with a hearing disability, but captioning videos has the potential to increase views and engagement, especially from viewers who prefer to watch their videos with the sound turned off. What’s more, with a transcript it becomes much easier for you to translate your content into other languages.
