Accessibility matters, my friends! There are almost certainly deaf and hard of hearing folks that want the content you’re making in your podcast. But if you don’t have a transcript, they may not be able to get it.
A lot of podcasters don’t do transcripts because they think they’re either too time consuming or they’re too expensive, and they don’t necessarily have to be either. That’s something that I can help with!
And of course, while accessibility is the most important reason to do transcripts, I think, but it’s not the only reason. It can also help you with search engine optimization. I kid you not, the first time I did a transcript for an episode of my show, the next day, a Facebook friend told me that my podcast came up in just a random Google search for a keyword having to do with the topic of the episode. That was pretty cool to see!
So, I think a transcript is a mega important tool for any podcaster to have. It doesn’t have to be super expensive, it doesn’t have to be super time consuming.
