STP is occasionally asked to transcribe voice recordings in a variety of languages.
We are happy to assist with this type of task, for which we charge our hourly rate. All our linguists are excellent typists and would normally only transcribe in their native language to ensure optimum skills in recognition of the spoken words.
The time it takes to transcribe a minute of recorded speech can vary considerably depending on the characteristics of the recording, e.g. whether it involves one or more speakers, is a monologue, dialogue or group conversation, how clear and coherent the speech is, the quality of the recording, the transcriptionist’s typing speed in characters/words per minute. Typically we would transcribe 8-15 minutes of voice recording per hour.
We can transcribe from most common audio and video file formats and will deliver the transcription with minimal formatting in any common text or word processing file format.
