At Rev we believe in truthfulness. We post all reviews so you see the good and the bad.
I take a lot of recorded statements with my job. When I found REV.COM, I was excited that they will actually transcribe all of my statements. When I E-mailed the statement, it was completed within hours. You don't know how much easier this makes my job. Thank you very much for the service.
huge time saver
Took a boatload of stress off my shoulders in transcribing a video portion of my class exercise. Was fast and accurate, and the price was well worth it. Thanks!
Excellent job, Rev.com!
Transcribers did an excellent job with very difficult material--the sound quality was poor in many places, and cross-conversations further complicated their task. If they'd been given decent tapes this review probably would be five stars. Turnaround was even faster than promised.
Very fast return. Objective translation.
Would always recommend Rev.com as your trusted translation service. Thank you!
Great service, great prices!
Rev.com saved me hours, and the price/performance ratio was very good.
Very, very fast and efficient. Had a little trouble uploading mp4 file so I had to end up sending audio file. Other than that , good job.
Fast and very accurate!
Very satisfied with Rev. Will definitely use this for future projects
Low quality, poor spelling and grammar -- will not use Rev.com again.
We have placed several orders with Rev.com -- this is not based on minimal experience with their work. At one point, the transcriptions were up to par. However, lately the quality of work has been extremely subpar (we are talking no use of MS Word spell check, etc.). We generally order transcriptions -- around the 30 minute mark -- and they are recorded with high clarity via a Yeti microphone and edited with Adobe Audition. So, there's really no excuse. The recording quality is superior. From numerous spelling mistakes, to a lack of basic grammar skills -- the transcriptions we've paid for lately have been hideous (forcing us to re-edit independently). When you explain that the quality level is substandard they reply with a canned autoresponder that says it meets their "internal accuracy" standards and hence they do not remedy the situation. They prefer to send emails back and forth about why they couldn't perform a simple task a 5th grader could achieve. Had they owned up to their errors -- and lack of basic Microsoft Word spell check -- I could be somewhat forgiving. However, we've decided that Rev.com is no longer worth the investment for the quality of work provided. If you have 5 minutes of audio, I'm sure they can handle that with some proficiency. However, if you have anything longer, that requires accuracy, take your business elsewhere. The only upside to Rev.com is that the turnaround is quick, but I'm sure you can find the exact same offering with other online transcription services.
Another great job
I love working with Rev
Fast and reliable
I've used Rev.com several times now. They have a 24 hour turnaround but my transcripts are being returned within a few hours. The accuracy is excellent. Really pleased with them.
Excellent work! This was our first use of Rev.com's transcription service. The product was received the very next day and we are very pleased with the result. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Cheap, but not as accurate as I’d like…
I got a good, quick turnaround of an audio interview transcript. I was impressed with the cost and the fast turnaround time, but, unfortunately, I was disappointed with the accuracy of the transcription. There were whole phrases missing, some transitions glossed over, whole statements that were misheard and, in context, made no sense in the transcript. This is a very important transcript for us, so accuracy was vital. I had to take as much time making corrections as I feel I would have just using voice recognition, or repeating the audio into my iPhone for voice recognition. We’ll give it another try,
Excellent and Accurate Service
I have been using Rev (Formerly Fox) translating services for all of my documentation translating. They are quick and I have never had any issues with the translated version of the documentation provided. I will continue to use Rev for all translation needs.
It was cheap and it saved me time, but there were alot of little things missed.
So I submitted 33 minutes of audio between two parties to be transcribed into text. Granted, there were a few places where some of the audio was a little difficult to understand, but there were some 50-60 places where the transcriber could not understand what was being said. In some, they typed the wring thing, and in others, they just stated that it was "inaudible". Interestingly, I went through and was able to clearly understand the speaker and I fixed 90% of the issues myself. Considering I only paid $22 for the transcription, I can't complain. It save me an enormous amount of time doing it myself. But I spent about an extra 90 minutes fixing the parts that were either wrong, or too difficult for the transcriber to understand.
Fantastic and quick
I needed a couple of transcriptions done asap and these guys delivered. I think i had both of my transcriptions (1 1/2 hours) of audio back with me in under 12 hours with only a couple of typos. I could not fault it. Would definitely use them again.
Great. Happy with the work.
Extremely pleased with the promptness and accuracy of a 6-hour transcription. Well done, Rev!
Fast transcription of accented original
Continue to be pleased with the speed and accuracy of Rev.com. I used to transcribe my interviews with WWII veterans. Rev has made my research much easier my relieving me of the burden of doing transcriptions myself for a very reasonable price.
Recent of first interviews from Rev.com
The experience has been extremely positive so far. I didn't realize that you had a firm cut off of 59:59 to determine if I would receive a transcript back within 24 hours versus 48 hours. It seems I am taking good audio tapes because I only received a few inaudible comments. Other than that one surprise, I am satisfied with this process.
Amazing quality and speed for an amazing price!
I tested a least one other transcription service. They were twice the price, and I still haven't received their work. Rev has done three interviews in that time for a great price. Also, the quality of the work is great--I don't see any errors! This will be the service I recommend to all of my colleagues especially the graduate students with tight budgets.
