Transcription Online and on a Budget

If you’re a student poring through hours of interview notes to research their thesis. If you’re a researcher, struggling to find a piece if pertinent data in your notes to aid a project. An HR professional trying to parse hours of audio from employee interviews to build a case to either hire or fire someone. If you’re one of a number of professionals who needs quick and easy access to the data within an audio or video file. You need to get your transcription online services like yesterday.

Most transcription online services can help you right away when you are in a pinch.  Especially if you pick up the phone and call them.  Transcription is the best way to actually be able to use the date on your audio and video files from a storage method that’s easy to capture and notoriously difficult to parse. 

The best way to ensure great quality, accurate transcription services, in a timely manner, is by using a transcription online service staffed by actual human beings.  While this requires some initial cost outlay, the simple truth is that, as in all things, you get what you pay for in a transcription service. Besides, with a little careful planning and management, you can get great quality transcription online on a budget. Interested in learning more about the best type of transcription jobs? Click here.

Make this decision rashly, however, and you could be duped.

The false economy of speech to text software

It’s completely understandable that the budget conscious might be tempted to use one of the many automated speech to text apps on the market. Yet, while the automated speech recognition (ASR) software that powers them has certainly improved in recent years, these apps still have an issue with accuracy. In fact, most top out at around 50% accuracy even with perfect audio quality and no background noise. 

Thus, the time and money you save with them will be offset by having to spend your precious time correcting inaccuracies and mistakes made by the software. ASR software struggles with accents, homophones, professional jargon, and don’t even think about it getting the punctuation right. The same can’t be said for human transcribers.

If you think you can’t get a reliable human transcriber at a great price.  We’re delighted to prove you wrong!

The power of planning your transcription online projects

In the vast majority of cases, planning ahead can result in significant savings on transcription services. The industry standard for a human transcriber to create an on-time and accurate transcription in around 4 hours per hour of audio or video. So, transcribers need to pull out all the stops to give their clients a quick turnaround. As you might expect, this comes at a premium.

However, if you can stand to wait a little longer, a turnaround time of 6-10 business days can result in some fantastic savings. In fact, you can get a transcription online from us for as little as $1.50 per minute if you can be flexible on a longer turnaround time.

Thus, a little forward planning and managing your schedule effectively so that you’re not up against tight deadlines can afford you a great transcript at an exceedingly reasonable price.
