What is a transcription service?

Our transcription services

TypeOut is a professional service to which you can send your audio or video recordings and request a fully typed-up transcript of them. With many transcription services available online, TypeOut distinguishes itself by offering a premium quality service at an affordable rate.

We specialise in transcribing audio recordings (for example recorded interviews) to typed documents (Microsoft Word documents). We transcribe in whichever format you request: verbatim, intelligent verbatim, discourse analysis or time coded.

Our service is straight forward to use – once you’ve recorded your dictation, interviews or focus groups, send us your recording via our secure upload facility and you’ll receive your accurate transcript within the agreed turnaround time.

We are a cost-effective solution because you only use us as and when you need to, meaning that your secretarial staff can get on with less time-consuming tasks.

It is often wondered why transcription can’t be done by a machine, being cheaper and faster. The simple answer is accuracy – they are still unable to produce transcriptions to the accuracy that humans can.

TypeOut considers itself a transcription company that cares – devoting adequate time and expertise to every recording as we know that quality is everything. That’s why we designate professional typists with relevant experience in the area they are transcribing to ensure the best results.

We have typists who specialise in legal, medical and media transcriptions as well as other industries. This means industry specific vocabulary and abbreviations are not missed and written up correctly.

Not only do we strive for accuracy, but also present the transcription clearly and neatly in an easily digestible way – making your job easier to find the relevant information when reviewing it.

Most importantly, we are a secure and confidential transcription service. Our commitment to this is second to none and is exemplified in our adherence to the Data Protection Act and membership of the Information Commissioner’s Office (set up as an independent UK body for data protection).

Furthermore, when you upload your files to our website you are protected by 256bit SSL encryption. This means they are uploaded safely and securely, using the same security system used by banks and other government institutions.

Regardless of how many clients we serve, we always ensure that we are available to answer any uncertainties our customers have and pride ourselves on our personal approach. Why not upload your first recording to be transcribed or contact us today should you have any special requirements.
