Transcript bloopers – they said what?!

Step into the lighter side of technical writing – the amusing world of transcript mishaps, where words take unexpected detours and laughter is the punctuation of the day.

At kdm communications, we have a passion for learning, and we love sharing our new-found knowledge with the wider community through unique and insightful copy. We also pride ourselves on staying at the forefront of recent innovations in scientific, technical and medical fields. That’s why we’re constantly interviewing key thought leaders to produce top-quality, relevant and scientifically accurate content that showcases the state of the art. In fact, this is one of the aspects of our job that we enjoy the most: experienced healthcare professionals, eminent scientists, enterprising start-up founders, knowledgeable technical experts – we’ve spoken to them all!

The recording and auto-transcription features of Microsoft Teams come in extremely handy for these interviews, allowing us to capture all the juicy and

fascinating details of our in-depth discussions. A ready-made transcript also saves us from frantically scribbling notes during the meetings, freeing us up to have a free-flowing conversation with our guests. However, these written dialogues often give us more than we bargained for; Teams doesn’t always get it right, especially with the more unusual scientific terms, and the result is usually hilarious. We thought we’d share some of our favourite transcription blunders to let you in on the fun.

Science isn’t always serious, and neither are we at kdm. So, sit back, take a look, and have a good laugh. We’ll keep adding transcript gems on a regular basis, so stay tuned for more chuckles!
