This is a rush transcription project
I have approximately 50+ MP3 files, totalling 25 hours of MP3s, that are interviews I did for a book.
(Note: There is some background noise, as many interviews took place in a restaurant, but most should be understandable.)
Transcription (English) needs to be decent, but not perfect - it's for notes, not ver...

“Would not recommend this freelancer again under any circumstances. They took the job, which I listed as a one-week turnaround required -- promising to put a team to work for less than one-week turnaround on 20 hours of transcription, promised at high accuracy, with estimated cost and time. What I got was a few files that were maybe 70% accurate, half that were about half accurate, and the rest were mostly unusable unreadable gibberish produced by people who had almost no grasp of English. AND... they dribbled in over the course of a full MONTH. I had to write to them and ask, "when will I be getting the files?" over an over to get any update on status. They would say "tomorrow you'll get 5 files" and then I'd get one. Again - one month for a project they estimated at no more than one week,and that I needed turned around quickly. Then, at the end, they tried to tell me that because it took them longer, I should pay for it. I'm paying the bill for the original time estimate to be done with this, but this is the last time I will work with these folks, and I can NOT recommend them to anyone else. ”
