Fingertips are experienced in sermon transcription and religious talks. Fingertips have transcribed sermons that have been spoken in church and talks that are given from leaders delivering a message to listeners wanting to learn about a certain faith. These speeches can be in churches, bars, coffee shops and homes. They can be recorded as audio or videos files and shown on TV, You Tube, websites etc.
There are many reasons you may need a transcript of your sermon or speech. The transcript or parts of it can be used in the church newsletter or magazine, or used for study purposes. The sermon or parts of it can be used on your website. If there were specific interesting points in the sermon you can post these on your website blog, Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or other social media pages. This will attract a wider audience and may bring more people to your church or course in order that you can spread the message and help people to learn about God and Jesus Christ.
Some publications for sermon transcriptions include:
- Study purposes
- Social media pages
- Newspaper articles
Some questions people commonly search for online include:
Why hasn’t God answered my prayer?
Why does God allow bad things to happen?
What does God really think about divorce?
Do we go to heaven when we die?
Can the dead really live again?
When a person searches online with certain questions, in many occasions, it will send you to a web page containing a sermon relevant to that question. The person will have the option of listening to the sermon or downloading the transcript. 9 times out of 10 they will choose to download the transcript. It takes less time to read a transcript than to listen to the whole sermon. The transcript can be printed for study purposes, whether you are attending a bible study group or a course such as Alpha (one of Fingertips clients). Important and useful points such as Bible verses can be highlighted for reference. Transcripts can be archived and filed for easy location. Persons with hearing difficulties need to be able to have the option to read the transcript and the transcripts can be used for closed captioning. Transcriptions are SEO friendly when a person is typing in a particular search term, audio is not.
Also many people search online to find answers and to look into the Bible and what it teaches. There is a transcription of the whole Bible on the internet along with voiceover. Studying the Bible is quite challenging and there is a lot to read so it is good to have the choice whether to read or listen. The option to download in PDF is also available which is good if you wish to print the pages, highlight any parables or verses. After all, you don’t want to put highlight and draw pen all over your hardcopy Bible do you? The option to listen is also a good feature for persons with visual impairments.
