Base Transcription Rates.

Transcription rates at Transcript Divas are dependent on a two things, turnaround time and difficulty.

    1. Turnaround Time: The longer the turnaround, the more time we have to complete and thus the lower the rate.
    2. Difficulty: A number of factors can increase the time it takes to transcribe a recording. detailed on the quote and order forms increase the time taken to transcribe a recording, and therefore the transcription rates (e.g. more than 2 people talking, unclear recording, accents etc.).

TURNAROUND TIME: The sooner you send through the project the lower the rate will be. Do not wait to complete the entire project – get some of it off to us as soon as it is recorded!
UNCLEAR RECORDINGS: The biggest factor that we see impacting recording quality and thus increasing the transcription rates are noisy recording environments. The nosier the environment, the longer it will take to transcribe, and the higher the rates need to be to cover the costs. Take the time to find a quiet room, or a quiet time of the day when planning your interview or group. If working with a group, set a ground rule that only one person speaks at a time. After controlling background noise in the recording situation as much as possible, the next step would be to invest in some quality recording equipment. We commonly recommend the zoom H1, and if possible, the use of an external mic like a lapel/tie clip mic.
