Did you know it takes (on average) one hour to transcribe 15 minute of clear audio? That is too much time for an investigator to spend on transcribing, without even including the added time of audio with background noise, accented speakers, mumbling, and overlapping conversations.
That’s valuable time to take away from investigating, and especially on such a frustrating, boring task like transcription.
So, to get the most out of your transcripts, consider hiring a professional transcription agency. Yes, it is an added cost, but it’s a one-time cost that saves you time and energy… and both the cost and transcript can be passed on to your clients.
But the key word is professional. Remember, transcripts are useless if they’re not secure and not accurate. So pick a transcription partner that is just that – a partner you can trust.
