Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Have My Event Transcribed

During conference calls or webinars, participants often spend too much time taking notes and not enough time paying attention. A transcript of the event documents the entire event – be it an investor relations earnings call, a speech by your CEO, or a focus group. Having a transcript removes the distraction of note taking and allows everyone to focus on content. With Tscribe, in 24 to 48 hours, all participants will receive a complete, professionally prepared transcript that allows them to review and reference the information discussed during the event.  A transcript is a great way to get information to anyone who wasn’t able to attend.

A meeting worth holding is worth documenting.  Think of the true cost of gathering people for an event — the time spent on the event. Get the most from your meeting by investing in a transcript of the proceedings, which will deliver value to you long after the last agenda item is discussed.

Any conferencing service should allow you to record your event at little cost; most will allow you to access the recording as an MP3 file or WAV file, free of charge. TScribe uses the audio (or video) file to create your document. If the conferencing service does not provide a digital file, they will provide a telephone number and access code to listen to the replay. Simply offer the appropriate numbers to Tscribe and we’ll record the conference and use that to create your transcript.

Depending on the length of your event and how quickly you need your transcript, your costs can be under $100. Using a transcription service directly, rather than ordering it through a conferencing provider, further reduces expense.

Our approach has always been to price our services such that clients receive both value and quality. Bargain-basement prices usually result in bargain-basement quality – a sub-standard transcript that a client may have to revise or redo themselves. TScribe offers a more affordable option than many of our competitors, while maintaining high quality and prompt delivery.

Turnaround times vary according to price – ASAP/Same-Day Delivery is available through TScribe. Less expensive options include 24-hour and 72-hour turnaround.

Any audio or video recording can be transcribed. The simplest media formats to work with include MP3, WAV, and WMA. These require little or no handling to be transcribed. Physical media such as VHS tapes, DVDs, CDs, or audio cassettes usually require conversion to a digital format. Other formats, such as AVI and QuickTime, can be transcribed, too, but require a conversion to MP3, WMA, or WAV.

Tscribe’s accuracy benchmark is 99.5% of audible material. If a transcript falls below a standard of 99.5% of audible material, the client will receive, at no extra charge, any editing services necessary to reach that mark.
