A Great Alternative To Minute Taking

What is Digital Transcription?

Digital transcription is the digitally-typed text conversion of an audio file.  This is where my transcription service can help you. With my help you can get any recorded message or audio file transcribed into a well-formatted digital text copy.

It is often being used as an alternative to minute taking and is likely to be more successful for meetings or interviews with a smaller participation of say 1-6 attendees.

You can see above, some of the clients I have supported to date.

Digital transcription offers flexibility to businesses. Read more on my blog post about this very subject!

Please Note The Following…

  • Clients may be asked to complete a Data Processing Form.
  • All turnaround times are subject to availability.
  • Prices are only relevant where the audio is clear.  I will advise you as soon as possible if an additional charge will be incurred due to poor recordings and difficulty of transcription.
  • Emergency transcription is possible but are subject to availability and extra charge.
  • All work is transcribed in intelligent verbatim (with or without slang) unless otherwise agreed.

Useful Information I Will Need…

  • Length of the audio.
  • Indication of quality of recording.
  • Number of speakers.
  • Nationalities and accents of the speakers.
  • Subject of the audio data.
  • Deadline for the transcription.
  • Details of any templates or formatting required.
  • Any further information.

Due to a restructuring of staff within my company I needed to outsource to a reliable VA to undertake my audio transcriptions. I was referred to Shirley by one of my clients who used to do what Shirley does now but gave up when she had children.

From the initial contact through to the final typed documents  Shirley was very organised, friendly and helpful.

My requirements came just as the impact of GDPR hit us both – I am pleased to say we adopted a workable solution that both complies with the legislation and makes sending and receiving back the transcriptions a doddle. This was important to me and my clients due to the sensitivity of the information I was dictating and sending to her.

Shirley sets my expectations, keeps me informed and completes the work in a timely manner and offers a number of rates dependent upon urgency which is appreciated. She is a stickler for detail and accuracy so much so I agreed to let her have some sample documents before she started for me so she could become acquainted with the format I use and the terminology and acronyms used in my industry.

I have no hesitation in recommending Shirley for audio transcription to anyone who has this requirement.

I will certainly be using Shirley again as and when the need arises.
