Service Description

Hello, I'm TessTheTypist, and I have channeled my love of language and my organizational skills into a career as a freelance transcriptionist. My job is to make your job easier by providing transcripts that don't require you to spend time proofreading them.

You will receive easily readable, professionally formatted transcripts of the audio or video you need transcribed. My transcripts are used by some clients as a product connected to their businesses.

I have an "ear" for transcribing audio/video as well as for a variety of accents. I research all unfamiliar names and terms and proofread each transcript twice, once by re-listening to the audio, and once for spelling and grammar. You receive a transcript that requires little, if any, proofing on your part.

I have a Certificate in Medical Transcription as well as years of experience with general transcription.

Past transcripts have included but are not limited to:

Personal Diaries
Interviews
Podcasts
Conference Calls
Teleseminars
Educational Videos
Court Trials

My Portfolio contains samples of my work, edited for confidentiality.

Transcription Pricing (per Audio Minute):

$1.25 per audio minute or $75 per audio hour to
$1.60 per audio minute or $96 per audio hour depending upon difficulty of the audio.

I include formatting, editing, research, and two proofing sessions per transcript.

Turnaround Time: My standard turnaround time is 2 business days from receipt of one hour of audio. Be assured, however, that...
