It is possible to get high quality affordable transcription with the help of services like TypeOut. Here, we’re going to look at what’s included with your transcription, and what you can expect from the team at TypeOut.

Tape Transcription Services

Whether it’s a tape transcription or from digital audio, the team at TypeOUt is able to carry out a wide range of transcription services including the following:

  • Verbatim: A highly detailed choice of services. In this, we transcribe audio and leave every single sound in the transcription, including non-verbal sounds like “errs” and “umms”, bracketed descriptions of laughter, and informal contractions like “wanna” and “gonna.”
  • Intelligent verbatim: The most popular of the digital transcription services that we offer, this is an accurate and almost word-for-word transcription, but is edited for easy readability. We ensure none of the information is lost in the transcription, but omit things like false starts and repeated words.
  • Discourse analysis: The most detailed form of transcription that we offer, is primarily used for the analytical discourse of the audio file. There are different types of discourse analysis, such as that which shows all repetitions, stuttering, pauses, coughs, laughter, and tone of voice
  • Time coded transcriptions: These are transcriptions that include time stamps, often used for those who want to review the audio from the tape as well as the digital transcription at the same time.

When choosing your transcription service, it’s a good idea to ensure that you have an idea of which type of service you want for the best results. However, you are not simply limited to four choices in terms of the service that you would like. We aim to customize our service to meet the needs of our clients as specifically as possible. If you have any requests, please do not hesitate to share them with us.

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
