Untitled design-2

You often hear writers and authors talk about experiencing writers block, but you hardly ever hear of a person who gets talker’s block. No one wakes up in the morning, discovers he has nothing to say and sits quietly, for days or even weeks, waiting for the inspiration to arrive.

Transcription goes all the way back to the Egyptian pharaohs. In fact, a scribe (sesh) in the Egyptian court was a prized position that garnered much privilege for the lucky people awarded the job. The historic scribe is in fact the modern day transcriptionist. Instead of taking ink to papyrus, today’s scribe takes audio file to keyboard to convey to text the words spoken – not by a pharaoh, but by a law enforcement officer, a medical professional or one of the other numerous occupations which employ the transcription tool today. It’s a professional tool that is becoming increasingly sophisticated, and at the same time, easier to use and access.
