As international hubs where individuals from different backgrounds and cultures come together, the diversity of trading floor and banking environments can introduce complexities in voice transcription due to variations in accents, dialects, and industry-specific jargon. Compliance teams must ensure that transcriptions accurately capture the intended meaning of conversations, even when language barriers or technical terminology exist.

The majority of errors or inaccuracies in transcriptions often come from transcription engines which are unable to cope with trader speed and jargon. This can lead to misinterpretation or missed information, resulting in potential compliance breaches.
