Frequently Asked Questions about Transcription Services

English Transcription

Why does TranscriptionServices.com not use speech recognition software?


Despite many advances in speech recognition over the past decade, it’s nowhere near being able to provide the level of precision and quality our clients expect. Transcripts created with speech-to-text software are often full of errors that no human transcriptionist would ever make. To guarantee the highest quality and accuracy, we work with a 100% human transcription staff.




Can you transcribe poor-quality audio?


Yes, although these files generally take a bit longer to transcribe. At no extra charge, our experienced transcriptionists work with audio of any quality, including audio with significant background noise, multiple speakers, heavily accented speech, etc. We can also handle audio or video that includes complex technical terminology.
