Transcriptions for Legal Professionals

TypeOut has become a trusted court typist for many in the legal profession. As it covers a wide range of legal proceedings. This includes dictating legal letters, recording witness statements, and requiring PACE tapes.

Whether you just require one transcription or many over an extended period. Our flexible service is ideal for your legal transcription needs. As a result of this, we offer an express service that can return your finished transcription in 24-48 hours. This service is for those that need a quick turnaround.

We understand that your time is better spent on other pressing tasks rather than transcribing interviews. However, it’s also important to know that your files are in safe hands. That is why we will take your digital recordings and turn them into a written transcript through the use of our court typist. All digital audio needs to be high definition to avoid any delays in turnover time.
