Cheap Transcription versus Quality Transcription

If accurate transcripts and on-time delivery is important to you in a transcription service then there are a few factors you need to consider before engaging a transcription service. There are many cheap options advertised online but you should be aware that your files will be sent offshore and prepared by non-native English speakers.

The saying ‘you get what you pay for’ certainly applies in the transcription services industry. The money you believe you are saving when you engage an overseas transcription service will, more often than not, be wasted as you spend hours correcting and amending your transcript. Words and phrases may not be correctly applied and regional terms will not have any context to foreign transcribers due to the language and cultural differences, costing your precious time correcting those errors.  Therefore, in the long run those savings are lost because your time is wasted fixing up something you have paid for.  


Transcription Services with 99.99% Accuracy

Type Transcripts offer 99.99% accuracy with our transcription services if you provide clear audio files. We always aim for 100% but yes we are human. We have provided some very interesting statistics so please click Transcription Accuracy  for a clear explanation of advertised accuracy rates across the transcription services industry. 

Many competitors guarantee 98% or 99% accuracy.  A  60-minute audio recording will have approximately 8000 words transcribed over 13 pages.  A 98% accuracy rate means your transcript could have up to 160 errors. A 99% accuracy rate up to 80 errors in a 60-minute recording.  With our 99.99% transcription accuracy rate, there will be less than 8 errors in a 60-minute recording. Please visit the Transcription Accuracy page for further information.

As a quality transcription provider, we are often faced with defending our transcription quotes against cheaper overseas online providers who often deal in very large volumes of transcription and their accuracy guarantees hold little substance or value.  If this still has not convinced you to use an Australian transcription service then we have done the sums on transcription accuracy rates advertised online in our blog which explains how accurate a 98% accuracy rate is compared to a 99% accuracy rate AND compared to our offering of 99.99% accuracy for clear audio recordings.  Visit our transcription blog for a interesting overview.

Audio Transcription Skills

A transcriber uses specific software, headsets and a foot pedal to manoeuvre through your audio recording. We must listen to every word spoken and transcribe it word-for-word. For anyone who has tried to transcribe their own audio recordings, you will truly understand this is not ‘just typing’. A clear 60-minute audio recording will take a very experienced transcriber at least four hours to transcribe the file. That file is then proof-read. In addition, there is the high likelihood of  accents; background noise; interjections; people speaking over each other; fast speakers – this all adds to the time it takes to rewind, re-listen, rewind, re-listen to your audio file. To add another layer of difficulty, transcribers are required to ensure industry-specific terminology that relates to a particular audio file is checked online, including people’s names, place names and other relevant information contained on the audio file. This is what you should expect to receive from a quality transcription service . Make Type Transcripts your smart choice in quality Australian transcription services. Contact us now for an immediate upfront quote.  Sue Jacobs, the business manager will take your call and answer any further questions you may have in relation to transcription services provided.
