Our Legal Transcriptionists are trained to transcribe verbatim or “cleaned-up” dictation ranging from a simple one-page letter to a hearing with multiple speakers. No job is too big or too small. We have standard and rush services available, both of which are priced very affordably.
Single voice dictation is as easy as using our toll-free dial-up dictation system or speaking into your handheld digital recorder and emailing or uploading the files to us. Even if you're still using a standard cassette recorder or micro-cassette recorder, we make it easy to send your dictation to us.
For our ongoing customers who send us dictation work regularly, we simply receive the audio files/tapes from them, return the completed transcripts to them by email, then bill them at the end of each month. It's like having a personal secretary without the added expense of hiring someone in-house. Give us a call - you’ll be glad you did!

Minimum Charges: There is a minimum charge of $15.00 for any transcript created. Each tape or file submitted is considered a separate transcript for billing purposes.

Payment for First Time Customers: Payment is not required until we finish the work. We will send an invoice in advance of completion. If you are a first-time customer, we will require payment before delivering completed transcripts. We accept all major credit cards and payment can be made on-line or by calling in the credit card number.

Turnaround Time for Transcription: Turnaround time depends on the material submitted for transcription. All turnaround times listed are in 'business' days. Weekend and holidays do not count towards the turnaround time. Please note, all non-Rush turnaround times quoted are estimates and not guarantees. We deliver the vast majority of our work within the stated time frames, but sometimes it may be slightly longer or slightly shorter due to pre-existing workloads. In general, the turnaround times quoted are good for transcription orders of up to 5 to 7 hours of audio. If you have an extremely large order, then add one additional day for each 5 additional hours of audio. On the submission form, you can prioritize which tapes to do first, so that we can start with those.

Rush Transcription Orders: We offer next day service for an additional charge on most of our transcription services. Rush work is guaranteed by the next day or we waive the rush fee. We are only able to rush so much material per day. If you have more than 5 hours of Rush material, please call for availability.

Delivery: Finished transcripts are e-mailed to you when completed. (Payment is required before delivery for new clients.) You can also download your finished transcripts from our client area as well as copies of your invoices. You will not receive a paper copy from us unless you request one. Paper copies are .10 cents per page plus shipping.
