Academic Transcription

Why we do it better

We promise you a premium academic transcription service from a small Australian owned and operated business.  Type Transcripts do not outsource offshore.  Type Transcripts engages and sources professional transcribers who are highly skilled individuals focused on providing you an accurate transcript of your academic research recordings.  You speak to a real person every time and our business is about delivering your transcript promptly and on time through an efficient streamlined service.

Did you know

Many of our competitors guarantee 98% accuracy.  If your recording is 60 minutes long, this would equate to approximately 8000 words typed over 13 pages.  A 98% accuracy rate means your transcript could have anywhere up to 160 errors.  Alarm bells?

The undertaking to you, given you provide a clear audio recording, is we will provide a minimum 99.99% accuracy rate which means less than 8 errors across your entire transcript for a 60 minute recording.  We actually set the benchmark at 100% but yes we are human.  Type Transcripts sources highly experienced professional audio typists who have experience in a wide range of vocabulary across many industries meaning your transcript has integrity.  This is our difference.

Academic Transcription Services delivered on time

Type Transcripts engages highly experienced audio typists who take pride in their work.  We understand the importance of your data and work towards providing you a transcript with integrity.  Our quality academic transcription service will save you time and effectively money when it comes to analysing your transcripts and you can have confidence in the transcripts which are delivered to you.  Our client base includes many Australian universities who have used our service for many years, often referring colleagues, after experiencing the excellent service that Type Transcripts provides.

Transcription Process: how it works

The audio files are uploaded via the Type Transcripts website Files Upload page or our transcript manager can send you a personalised link to upload when you contact us.  Clients can also send files via Dropbox or their preferred file sharing facility.  The audio is downloaded at this end, the transcript is typed and proof read.  Clients can choose from a variety of templates on this site or provide their own.  The completed and proofed transcript is returned via a secure Sharefile link which you receive via email to download and save your transcript.
