iScribed delivers quality and accurate transcriptions from the most common formats, regardless of how files were recorded. Simply put, we can transcribe files that have been recorded on devices ranging from iPhones to cassette tape players and everything in-between. To get a bit more technical, we accept audio and video recordings in AAC, AVI, M4A, MOV, MP3, MP4, MPEG, MPG, VOB, WAV, WMV, and WMA among others. If, by chance, your file format isn't recognized or accepted during the ordering process, just give us a call and we'll work to make it happen.
The amount of time involved to transcribe an audio recording depends on the size of the recording itself. Our goal is to deliver typical audio files 60 minutes or shorter in duration within two (2) business days (48 hours). Of course, rush service (24-hour turnaround time) is available for an additional fee and gives your order a higher priority in our queue. Please note: Poor audio quality, a large number of speakers, and / or the request for Verbatim transcriptions can also increase the time required to transcribe the file due to increased complexity.
You can rest assured that when you entrust iScribed with your audio recordings, you are working with the very best transcription professionals in the business. Know that every member of our team is thoroughly vetted, trained and experienced in audio transcription and customer care. Additionally, two team members are assigned to your file. Their job is to thoroughly check and double-check the final transcribed file to make certain it is as close to perfect as humanly possible.
Security and privacy are vitally important issues to iScribed. To start with, every file is encrypted (256-bit SSL—virtually "uncrackable!"), and accessible only to you and the team members assigned to your project. Your files will never be shared for any purpose, other than the work you have contracted us for. iScribed includes another layer of security in the process by having all team members sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). By doing so, all transcribers and proofreaders are bound by law not to discuss or disclose contents of your files with anyone without your specific written consent. Finally, if you required an additional level of privacy, we will sign an NDA form for you, as well.
iScribed is noted for providing five-star transcription services in English only. However, we recognize that we are living in a global community and are working diligently to bring our valuable services to the non-English speaking professionals around the world. Stay tuned for that pending announcement!
Pricing / Payment
At iScribed our pricing is straightforward. For a 48-hour turnaround, we charge only 89 cents per audio minute. For example, a 60-minute file costs just $53.40.
iScribed has a "Rush Order" option! Just add on 60 cents per audio minute and your order will be given a higher priority in our order queue. For a 60-minute file, our average turnaround time for rush orders is less than one business day (24 hours). Please note: Poor audio quality, a large number of speakers, and / or the request for Verbatim transcriptions can also increase the time required to transcribe the file due to increased complexity.
For both services, we would charge an additional 40 cents per audio minute (20 cents per audio minute for each service).
