Much of our work is highly sensitive. Since we were established in 1988 we have never breached our clients' confidentiality.

We transcribe all types of files:

  • Sony or Lanier courtroom recorders.
  • CDs, DVDs, VHS tapes.
  • Standard, micro and mini audio cassettes.
  • Digital voice recorders (Olympus, Philips, MP3 recorders).
  • Various styles of LANIER equipment
  • Handwritten or printed documents.
  • Web based multimedia content.
  • We support 99% of all popular audio formats (i.e. DS2, DCT, DSS, MP3, WMA, WAV, FLM, etc.) If we do not have it we can probably convert it.

Digital audio can be sent directly from your Olympus digital recording devices, or any other device or software that supports file transfer using SFTP, FTPS, FTP or VPN. They can be effortlessly configured to automatically send digital content directly to servers for processing by our experienced operators.

We work closely with clients to keep transcription costs down. We charge by the hour or per project, so the clearer the recording, the less time it takes.

The transcribed document is provided to you in a Microsoft Word format. Spelling corrections, minor alterations, and minor document reformatting are made at no additional charge.
