View Full Version : Online Transcription Service

08-11-2018, 12:45 PM
Online transcription, or audio transcription, is the scribing (or typing) of recorded verbal information into text. On Time Typing offers transcripts of audio files at two different levels of accuracy, depending on your needs: Proofread Transcripts (with a money-back guarantee that the transcripts are highly accurate) and 1st Draft Transcripts (which are reasonably accurate and may be highly accurate but there is no guarantee of accuracy). The quality of your transcript will also depend on the audibility of the recording. If a word is not audible and cannot be inferred from the context then it will not appear in the transcript. Therefore, you should take the utmost care when recording your interviews, focus groups, meetings or dictation to make sure that 1) there is no background noise, 2) all speakers are within 2-3 feet of the recorder, 3) all speakers speak clearly without mumbling, and 4) participants speak one at a time (not altogether or constantly interrupting). When recording an interview, focus group or meeting, if a participant is not speaking clearly then you (the interviewer) should reiterate what they have said; that way, even where participants' words are not clearly audible in the recording the transcriptionist will be able to hear and transcribe your reiteration so the information will be included in the transcript.
