  • What is the turnaround of the human transcription service?

    The turnaround time for English, Spanish and French is 24 hours, and for all other languages 48 hours. Please note that this may depend on your uploaded volume. We always live update your turnaround times if we foresee any delays, so you’re kept informed of your delivery.

  • What is the difference between automatic transcription software and human transcription service?

    The main difference between these two services relies on the accuracy of the transcription. Our human transcription service has an accuracy of 99%, and your files will be proofread by an expert transcriber. When using our automatic transcription software, your files will be transcribed automatically, so you will need to proofread them and make corrections in our transcript editor to make them 99% accurate.

  • What are the human transcription rates?

    The price of the service depends on the language and length of your files. The price for English human transcription starts at $2.00 per minute of audio.
