How to record audio for accurate transcripts

  • Keep the background noise to the minimum.
  • Ask the participants to speak clearly into the microphone, and refrain from shuffling papers, typing loudly, or talking among themselves.
  • Check where you place the microphone. If your meeting involves many people sitting together sharing the same dial-in, place the microphone near the participants who are talking.
  • Choose an external microphone over a built-in one for better sound quality.
