We can transcribe from micro-cassettes, standard audio cassettes, VHS tapes, CDs, DVDs, or audio files in almost any format. Transcripts are generally returned as Word .doc files, but we can provide other formats as well, including rich text files which can be used with Open Office. At no additional cost, all transcripts are checked by both the transcriber and an independent proofer.
An accurate transcript depends upon a clear and audible recording, and that involves more than putting a microphone on a table and turning on a recorder. Hired Hand believes that, whenever possible, a transcription company should be involved before the recording process begins. We will be happy to send you suggestions on improving audio quality for your recordings with no charge or obligation. And if you have additional questions about the recording process, don't hesitate to contact us.
