Accuracy and affordability are the major service features. Educational transcription has become an important service provided for the academic community and is highly beneficial for this target group. The services of a transcription company have become valuable for students pursuing their higher studies. These transcription services are provided for students, researchers and professors across a broad spectrum of academic disciplines. Students with hearing disabilities find this service very useful because they can get error-free transcripts of the audio material. Nowadays, many academic institutions prepare audio recordings of important research and study materials and transcribe them so that they can be used for further analysis and study. Academic transcription service is available for: • Conferences/lectures • Interviews (one-to-one or multiple speakers) • Focus group meetings/discussions • Classroom recordings • Webinars and podcasts • Course materials • Presentations Accuracy and Affordability – Two Important Concerns in Educational Transcription Integrity of data is of immense importance in academic transcription. A transcription firm with a good reputation and long-term experience understands each need of its clients and provides customized transcription. You can ask for verbatim, near verbatim and nonverbatim transcription service. In all cases, accuracy is ensured in the final transcripts so that you don’t have to worry about the correctness of the information. The academic community is always looking for a provider that is affordable, not only because of the large volume transcription requirements but also due to budget constraints. Client-sensitive transcription companies offer flexible and customized transcription in keeping with the client requirements. There are outsourcing firms that have offshore facilities in countries such as India where labor is cheaper, but quality is excellent. Such transcription firms are able to provide the service at a more affordable rate than when having the transcription done in the US. You can choose a company that has a solid presence in the US with dedicated offshore facilities recognized for providing accurate and value-added services.
  2. 2. Advantages of Outsourced Educational Transcription Service Let us look at the major features and advantages of outsourced educational transcription that make this service really worthwhile for the academic group. • Valuable time-saving service with customized turnaround times. This is a great advantage because it allows the academic community to focus on research, analysis and writing. • Cost savings ensured. Usually reputable transcription firms offer affordable service with cost savings in the range of 30 - 40%. • Accuracy ensured with the help of professional transcriptionists knowledgeable in various disciplines. Moreover, a 3-level quality assurance process also helps to ensure accuracy and quality. • Ensured confidentiality for the data entrusted. The audio/video files given for transcription are protected during the entire transcription process from receiving, transcribing to sending back. Confidentiality is assured since all staff members are made to sign a non-disclosure agreement. • Round-the-clock service. Given the various benefits offered by transcription services for the academic community, these services are definitely valuable. However, care should be taken when finalizing a service provider and the choice must be taken after thoroughly considering all service terms and conditions.
