Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take to receive my automated transcript?

Most files are transcribed in less than 5 minutes but we will always provide an estimate. You will receive an email when your automated transcripts are ready.

How accurate are automated transcripts?
  • The accuracy of our speech recognition algorithms are directly related to the quality of the audio file input. Background noise, volume differences between speakers, non-standard accents, etc. will all impact the transcript quality.
  • To accommodate for the imperfect transcription, we have built editing functionality right into the transcript to make editing quick & easy with Rev's free Transcript Editor.
How much do you charge for automated transcription?

Automated transcription costs $0.10 per minute of audio. For example, a 30-minute recording would cost $3.00. All audio is rounded to the nearest whole minute.

What file formats do you accept?
  • We accept audio and video recordings in MP3, MP4, WMV, AIF, M4A, MOV, AVI, VOB, AMR, WMA, OGG, AAC, and WAV. We also accept links to streaming video and audio files available on the web.
  • We do not currently accept physical media (tapes, CDs, SD cards, etc.). If you have a file in a format other than those listed here, please Contact Us.
How do you keep my information secure?
  • Your files are securely stored and transmitted using TLS 1.2 encryption, the highest level of security available. We also never store credit card information - we simply pass it securely to our bank for safe-keeping.
  • We will never share your files or personal information with anyone outside of Rev. Files are transcribed by machine; no humans are involved.
In what format will I receive the completed automated transcription?

Transcripts are available for viewing, sharing, and editing from Rev's free Transcript Editor. Customers can also download transcripts as Microsoft Word, Plain Text, PDF, SubRip, and WebVTT file formats.
