Pastors and spiritual leaders preach sermons to spread the word of God and show people a better way of living. Most people though do not have the patience to sit through a 30-minute to an hour and a half of preaching, they would rather be elsewhere. If a church, a priest or parish uses sermon digital transcription services then these sermons can be converted to text. Sermon transcription means converting recorded sermons to text format which could be in the form of an MS Office document or plain text document or it could even be in the form of a PDF.
People find it more convenient to read at leisure rather than listening to an audio sermon. Sermon digital transcription is usually provided for recorded sermons that could be in an audio format such as a MP3 or WAV file. Religious institutes find it beneficial to use sermon transcription services as they are able to reach a wider congregation. People are more likely to download transcribed text delivered by a sermon transcription firm than listen to the live audio recording. Another advantage of using a sermon digital transcription service are the handy reference material these transcripts become, both for a pastor preparing the next sermon and people who may be doing theology studies.
