Research Transcription and why we do it better

This is worth reading

Many competitors guarantee 98% or 99% accuracy.  If your recording is 60 minutes in length, this would mean, on average, 8000 words typed over 13 pages.  A 98% accuracy rate means your transcript could have anywhere up to 160 errors. A 99% accuracy rate will still give you up to 80 errors and that’s just in a one-hour recording.  Type Transcripts offer 99.99% accuracy with our transcription services if you provide clear audio files.

Provided your audio recording is clear, 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.  The professional transcribers that are sourced are highly experienced audio transcription typists and have experience in a wide range of vocabulary across many industries, meaning your transcript has integrity.

The Research Transcription Process

The audio files are uploaded via the Type Transcripts website File 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, 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. The process of uploading your audio and delivering your market research interviews takes minimal effort on a client’s part.  The hard work is all handled by transcription experts.
