Why hire a transcriber?

 

If you have audio and/or video files that you need to review, but not much time to go through them, you may like to hire a transcriber.

 

If you have audio or video that you need transcribed, but you don't have the time or interest to do it yourself, hiring a transcriber may be the right solution for you. Why else might you hire a transcriber?

  • You don't type over 90 words per minute

  • You have not bought expensive transcription software for professional typists

  • Being demoted from your regular job to do administrative work doesn't sound fun

Without the time, skill, professional software, and training in transcribing, your audio/video files will stay in audio/video format. By hiring a transcriber, however, you are converting your audio/video files into logically formatted, easy-to-read text.

 

Forget listening to yourself or someone else talk for hours on end; purchase any of our transcription services to skim through reports, hearings, meeting overviews, [list more types of typically transcribed files] and more.
