Transcription is the process of converting audio and video into written text. I listen to your file and document every word spoken, including identifying the speakers. Because the same transcriptionist (ME!) works on all of your transcripts, your preferences such as strict or standard verbatim, punctuation style (e.g. semicolon use, time format, use of quotation marks, etc.) and layout format are easily supported.
It’s imperative to have your audio transcribed by a real person, not software. Software does not do an effective job with accents or make sense of speakers talking over each other.
