Transcribing an Interview with Our Typists

Transcribing an Interview – A Learned Skill

Transcribing an interview can be difficult and very challenging than a solo audio file. The process involves a keen ear, a fast hand, and a sharp memory to catch up with the words and convert it into its text version at about the same pace of the conversation. Usually, a one-hour interview takes up to 6 hours to transcribe, but with our skilled typists, transcribing an interview is shorter than that without lowering down the accuracy rate.

Interview transcription service like us employs typists / transcribers who can maintain the tone and the integrity of the original conversation. Some typist may be missing words or word phrases in the process, which can greatly affect the transcription output and the project as a whole. This kind of interview transcriptions may then sound less articulate and conversational in real life. With clumsy transcription, the meaning can change. Fortunately, this is not the case when you delegate an interview transcription with us.  Our typist leads the transcription industry with patience paralleled with precise listening.

It is a fact that knowing what the voices are saying helps a lot in establishing a conversation and recovers every lost word in the interview.
  • Our typists, before starting a project, clarify the specific ideas and determine the kind of things the interview is gearing towards.
