    Two Levels of Checks by our Experienced Transcribers

    All our transcripts go through two levels of checks by our experienced, in-house transcribers. The transcribers are well versed in a variety of fields such as medicine, business, media, science and technology. They are experienced in transcribing various accents and dialects, and specialize in transcribing heavy accents and speakers using English as a second language

All factors considered, here’s a simple guide to transcription turnaround time for a 1-hour recording:

Simple recording (clearly recorded, non-technical content, and no overtalking): 4 hours.

Complex recording (background noise, overtalking, or technical content): 5-9 hours.

Knowing this is helpful in calculating costs if your transcription service charges by hours worked. Some transcription companies, including IndianScribes, that charge by audio-minute (1 audio minute = 1 minute of recording). This type of billing is preferable if you need to know the exact cost of transcription beforehand.
