Notes about Transcription:

Additional charge for rush - 24-hour, 2-day, or 3-4 business day delivery.

All rates apply to clear and audible recording, with native or near-native English speakers, discussing general knowledge.

Difficult audio, such as "foreign" accents or non-native English speakers, audio source far from speakers, technical words (medical, legal, foreign words, industry-specific words, etc.), meetings with many cross-talking (as in focus groups), loud background noise that interferes from understanding the speaker's words, etc. are charged extra as it takes more time to transcribe.  If you have a question about your audio, please give us a call and we can provide an estimate of your work.

Rates apply to digital audio transferred directly to our secure site or downloaded from your site/ftp.  CDs/DVDs charged more.

We will provide you with a secure link to upload your audio.  However, if you need to physically drop off your CDs/DVDs to be transcribed at our office, please include with the package a business card, and an agenda or a list of speakers, if any.  Make sure all CDs/DVDs are labeled properly.  Finished CDs/DVDs are NOT returned.  If you wish these CDs/DVDs returned, please send a courier to pick them up, or send us your DHL or FedEx account, or a prepaid envelope.
