General transcription
The word 'transcription' may sound exotic, but it's only the conversion of an audio or video file into a text document. A professional transcriber listens to the whole recording first. They then use special software and a foot pedal to put all words spoken into a text document.

General transcriptions are useful and beneficial in many fields. Such documents are used by the media every day for interviews, public speeches, and political debates. Accurate court and legal transcriptions are essential to criminal justice. Medical transcriptions help doctors convert quickly spoken notes into readable reports and chart records.

No matter your purpose, don't waste time doing transcription yourself or trying the cheapest general transcription agencies, which use inaccurate machine transcription. GoTranscript's general transcription service lets you focus on those activities that require advanced skills, generate more income, or produce direct results. Just upload your file, choose a turnaround time, and get a clear, accurate transcription sent directly to your inbox. Our professional team works 24/7. Please feel free to contact us anytime, for any reason.

Frequently Asked Questions

We at GoTranscript completely understand the importance of accuracy in transcription. That's why we always aim for 99% accuracy. This percentage holds true across the board, from simple content to complex medical transcription services.

We start by hiring only the best. We then employ a system of reviews and checks to ensure quality and accuracy. Our staff have no less than 5 years of transcribing experience, so you can be sure your audio files are transcribed with great care and attention to detail.

All of our translators/transcribers sign a Confidentiality Agreement. We respect our clients privacy; therefore, we give clients the option to personally remove completed transcriptions from our database. The data is completely removed from the computers of our translators/transcribers as well.

Never. Speech-to-text programs can't achieve the quality our professional transcriptionists can.

The majority of our transcriptionists are based in the United Kingdom or United States and are native English speakers.

Yes. We love our customers! To show our appreciation for your patronage, we offer a Customer Loyalty Program. It's our way of thanking you. You can get the lowest prices around and enjoy special discounts just by continuing to use our services.
For our loyal customers, the price per audio minute can be as low as $0.77.

Low-quality audio has one or more of the following:
• Speakers talking over each other
• Interruptions
• Background noise
• A low-quality microphone
• A microphone that's far from the speaker(s)
We add $0.20 a minute for these more complex transcriptions and assign them to our more experienced Pro Transcribers to guarantee quality results.
Also, most of our English-language transcribers are based in the U.S. and U.K. An ESL speaker can be hard to decipher, as can even a thick Australian or South African accent. Please use this Pro Transcriber option for:
• Speaker(s) with a heavy accent
• Two or more different accents
Please be sure to click the 'Yes' radio button next to the 'Low-quality audio / Heavy accent' option on your order form. Choosing this option ahead of time ensures that you receive your completed file as quickly as possible.

It's the process of turning recorded audio into text. A transcriber listens to a recording or an audio track from a video and turns it into a formatted text document. The transcription is produced in the same language as the recording and stays true to the recorded speech and sound events. While stutters and false starts are omitted (except in full verbatim transcription), we do not summarize, paraphrase, or correct any grammar errors the speakers make.

We're unable to retrieve files if a website requires a password, a manual download, or other types of human interaction with the host. You can submit YouTube, Dropbox, Google Drive, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Facebook, Instagram, SoundCloud, BluCloud, Twitter, WeTransfer, Wistia, Zoom links. You can use other services as long as the URL leads to the file itself. If you're not sure if the URL leads directly to your file, all you need to do is try it out. Click the PASTE URL button, copy your link, and click ADD. If our system can't fetch your file, you'll get a notification.

Not by default. GoTranscript accepts a wide range of audio and video formats. We transcode those files to MP3 before our transcriptionists start working on them. They handle the audio portion of your material, but you can leave a note or get in touch with us if you need the video content transcribed.

The most significant influence on turnaround time is the audio quality of your recording. In most cases, challenging audio takes more time to transcribe. Things like heavy accents, lots of background noise, and highly technical content that requires lots of research usually take longer to transcribe than clear audio. Length of the recording also plays a factor here, and long files generally take more time.

The quality of your recording directly impacts the final transcript quality. For high-quality transcripts, clear audio with adequate volume and minimum background noise is a must. Here are a few simple tips you can follow to make sure your audio recording quality is top-notch!
