  • All turnaround times are subject to availability and may change without notice.
  • Turnaround times do not include weekends or public holidays but may be arranged on request.
  • Prices and turnaround times are subject to recordings being of a professional quality, with no background noise and without strong foreign or regional accents – our management team will determine this. We will advise you immediately if additional charges will be applied.
  • There may be a minimum charge of £15.00 for short one off audio files.
  • If errors are made by TypeOut they will be amended free of charge provided the work is returned to us within 24 hours of the client receiving it. Extra amendments or additions made by the client will be charged at £15.00 per hour.
  • All work is transcribed in intelligent verbatim (with or without slang) unless otherwise agreed.  Different types of transcription can of course be accommodated, although there will be additional charges. Please contact us to discuss this further.

DIGITAL POTION - DIGITAL MARKETING

I could not have been happier with the transcription service I received
from TypeOut. The turnaround was quick and of good quality (despite the
sector specific language and acronyms used in the audio files). Would use
TypeOut again to help with the burden of transcribing long qualitative
interviews!
