Choose the Right Service for You

The right transcription partner needs to meet all of your top priorities. Most people need fast transcriptions that are accurate and not too expensive. Especially if you’re going to transcribe a large quantity of audio or video, you need a cost-effective option.

Read reviews left by others in your industry who worked with the transcription service providers. Hopefully, they will leave the kind of feedback that is most relevant to you. If the transcription service you consider doesn’t serve your industry, it shouldn’t be a deal breaker, but it might be a sign that there’s another option more suited for the work you’re doing.

Rev’s Same-Day Human Transcription

Rev works hard to be the leader in same-day, accurate transcriptions. Our team of experts can work in multiple languages to transcribe any audio for you. If you decide to use our human transcription, for about $1 extra per minute we offer our Rush transcription service — and it will be 99% accurate. Many of our customers find that their transcriptions are delivered in only a few hours.

Rev’s Automatic Transcription

We also offer automated transcriptions where voice to text can be transcribed in as little as 5 minutes with transcription software. As soon as you send us the file, or the link to the content you want transcribed, our artificial intelligence program starts to transcribe immediately. Because we can only guarantee 80-90% accuracy with our automated transcriptions, the cost is 10 cents per minute. Customers who plan to do heavy editing and repurposing of their transcript anyway tend to love this option.

An important factor in getting back a more accurate transcription when you choose the automated transcription is the quality of audio. If you can control the setting, make sure to record in a quiet area giving each speaker uninterrupted time to talk. The natural flow of a conversation can include cross-talk or side conversations. If your audio has that, try the human transcription services instead. Especially with accented speakers, a computer will have a harder time giving you the transcription you need quickly.

For everything else, try automated transcription! It’s a quick way to get all the notes you want without having to put in any extra work.
