About This Gig

I am offering professional, discrete transcription of any audio and video files. My only requirement is that all audio be in English. Any heavy accents or patches of poor audio quality (to the point, in both cases, that I just can't make out what's being said,) will be marked w/ an [inaudible] tag.

If there are longer segments of audio (anything over 3-5 seconds) that are inaudible, I'll include a time-frame within the tag (i.e. [inaudible 07:17-07:36])

All transcriptions will be Clean unless you request Verbatim. All this means is that if a speaker stutters or has a false-start ("So, uh, we were, I was going to go...") the transcript will only reflect what the speaker intended to say ("So, I was going to go...")

Filler words such as 'like', 'you know', etc. will be transcribed as heard.

Background noises, laughter, inaudible interruptions, etc. will be left out unless requested.

I'll happily answer any other questions you might have and further discuss any options or details specific to your needs.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Can I get the basic package finished in 24 hours?
    Yes and no. All packages are available for next day/24 hour turnaround unless the length of the audio to be transcribed exceeds 45 minutes to an hour (depending on quality/clarity of the audio.)
  • Can I get my files transcribed verbatim?
    Yes. I am more than happy to transcribe your file in any manner you would like. With verbatim, however, if the audio exceeds 30 minutes, I cannot guarantee a 24-hour turnaround. In some cases (lots of stutters and such) proofreading and formatting may take longer than 24 hours.
  • Do you have experience?
    Yes. I have been a transcriptionist for many years. I take mostly local work but have been looking for work to fill the gaps when I have caught up on my workload. Rest assured, if you see my listing here, I have time to address your needs.
  • What's the revision for?
    Once I have finished the transcription I will send it to you as a PDF. Anywhere you find an [inaudible] tag, you can let me know what was said should you know yourself and I will fix the final draft up to reflect these changes. Any other tweaks or changes you might want you can ask for at this time
  • What if my file is too long and I don't know how to edit it to the length I want transcribed?
    Just let me know the start time and stop time of the segment(s) you want transcribed and I'll be able to handle it from there.
  • What do you do with my media files after our transaction is complete?
    I will delete all media files once I have delivered your final product. I do not keep any files after a job has finished.
  • What if someone drops the 'F-bomb'
    Then, unless specifically requested, it's going to be written out as heard in the audio. I transcribe any and all sorts of media from personal recorders to professionally scripted and acted material. Neither my eyes nor ears offend easily.
