Legal Transcription – 4 Factors
Transcript Divas “4 Factor Model” Legal Transcription Services are one of the most respected in the industry. Our clients include major law firms and the courts themselves. Our legal transcription team and the procedures we have in place ensure that your transcripts will remain confidential, will be accurate, and on time.
Legal Transcription – Factor 1: The Team
Definitions of Legal Transcription focus on two things, the necessity for accuracy and the necessity for understanding the legal services. A good Legal Transcription Service starts with a good team.
Our legal transcription team all have at least 3 years experience as either a Legal Secretary or as a Courtroom reporter. We keep our selection criteria tough because years of experience in this field has shown us one thing. That years of experience counts!
Legal transcription – Factor 2: Accuracy
Accuracy assurance is achieved through the use of 2 transcriptionists checking the document against the original recording before we send it back to you.
Legal Transcription – Factor 3: Confidential
All our transcriptionists sign legally binding confidentially agreements – if you have your own we are also happy to have our Divas sign that as well.
Legal Transcription – Factor 4: Data Protect
All files are sent over an SSL encrypted Internet connection. All files are hard deleted 7 days after the project completion.
On request, files can also be password protected – this method ensures the maximum level of data protection. However, this password method does require our clients to be able to upload software to their computers to decrypt the files.
Legal Transcription – Automated?
One question we do get asked often here at Transcript Divas is about automated software options for Legal Services.
Dragon Naturally Speaking is the leading legal dictation transcription software. The Legal transcription version has a ready to go bank of technical legal words already loaded.
For most straight dictation needs - with one person talking clearly and precisely into the microphone, we recommend this solution as it is a lot more cost effective.
Although highly accurate in straight clear dictation of one person speaking, the major drawback of automated software is that it will not work with more than one voice.
Automated software is pretty much “lost in transcription” transcribing a 2 person conversation and totally lost in a group situation or a situation that has not produced a great quality recording.
For these types of situations we recommend a human face on the transcription process.
