Transcription Cost Determiners

  1. 1. Transcription Cost Determiners
  2. 2. CATEGORY The transcription process begins once an audio or video file is received; it’s then been CATEGORIZED based on certain factors that determine it. Segregation of the audio files into different sections is called as CATEGORY. Every client is entitled to pay for a transcription based on the category of files that they submit. The expenditure for a transcription accounts on every suggestion the client makes and needs.
  3. 3. CATEGORY-A Clear audio without any background sounds. Audio recorded with the help of a proper device. Clear accent with good pronunciations. Neutral Accent No Time Stamping
  4. 4. CATEGORY-B Audios with background noises, and disturbances. Court Recording/ GD/ Telephone recording/ open air recording Recording done unprofessionally with a low quality recorder. Technical Subject Matter. Standard Time Stamping. ESL Speakers
  5. 5. CATEGORY-C Heavy background noises which interrupt the speech. Recording done in an inappropriate manner. Too much accent usage. Defective Recording. Complex Formatting Specifications.
  6. 6. Turnaround Time The next factor that determines the cost for transcription is TURN AROUND TIME . Once the audio is categorized it is mandatory for the client to foretell the transcriptionist the estimated time that they want the transcribed content to be delivered. The turnaround time is completely client dependent and it’s the duty of the transcriptionists or transcription firm to satisfy the client in the estimated turnaround time. This plays a major role, as we live in a quick world where people are in need of things in a short period of time.
  7. 7. The customer is given the freedom to choose among the three turnaround time options they are… Normal TAT Transcribed and delivered within 24-48 hours, cost varies based on the category it falls under starting from $1 to $3(Per minute). Rush TAT Transcribed and delivered within 12-24 hours. The clients who request a rush TAT are charged from $2 to $4(Per minute) based on the category. Super Rush TAT Transcribed and delivered within 2-12hours, Since it’s done in the shortest time requested its pricing starts from$3 to$6(Per minute) depending upon the category that the transcription file belongs too.
  8. 8. Number Of Speakers The audio or video file received is cross checked for the NUMBER OF SPEAKERS available in the file to be transcribed. The files are charged based on the number of speakers in the conversation. The charges start from one to one speaker, like an interview and extend to multiple speakers. The rates vary from $1 to $1.25(Per minute) depending on the number of speakers present in the conversation.
  9. 9. VERBATIM Transcribing a Verbatim Transcription is said to be an art form as it requires a lot of commitment and involvement to carry out the same. Verbatim is done with the flow of the transcription and is being charged only when the client specifically requests for it. The verbatim transcriptions are chargeable based on the client’s requirement. When the client requires a detailed version of their transcript they request for a verbatim transcript that explains everything in detail even the pauses in every conversation.
  10. 10. TIME CODE A time code is done based on the requirements of the clients on the whole. Time coding is done for : DVDs or digital video files with a visible time code burn (BITC). Audio files with audible SMPTE LTC time code. BWF and IXML Broadcast WAV files. Mp3s with Sound Devices id3 metadata time code information.
