I have a passion for transcription - I will transcribe your video or audios, gladly! 80 WPM - I'll create a neatly typed up transcript in Word for use in what you need. I've previously transcribed topics such as marketing, spirituality, nutrition, and self help, but I love to be immersed in new topics to listen to! I'm often contacted to transcribe audios for personal memoirs or for books - is this you? Great! I love listening and learning as I put great effort into making a typed up transcript to fit your needs.
I have four different styles of transcription: Verbatim, Near Verbatim, Presentable, Summary. Please don't hesitate to ask me to explain to the fullest extent of these options, but here is a brief description: Verbatim is mostly used for legal transcriptions - includes false starts, filler words, stuttering, etc. Near Verbatim is what most clients want, it excludes stuttering, false starts, and filler words etc. For Presentable - all the same intent of the original speaker(s) is retained, but word order may be changed, filler words omitted, and repeated sentences omitted – including indirect references to information already spoken about – all at my discretion. Summary is good for finding the key notes from dictation, meetings, presentations, classes, etc. All four transcription styles have different costs associated with the effort it will take. Verbatim takes the most effort, and Summary takes the least.
I will transcribe a minute of your audio for free if you would like a sample of my ability or transcribing style, and if you want anything specific (such as document format, multiple speaker format, no contractions, or style of transcription), I will be sure to work to your needs. If you have a specific template, I will also transcribe within it, as well as any instructions. All further editing of formatting is free, and we can try many to see how you like it!
I normally have many "Jobs in Progress" but don't worry, they are all "work as needed" and are on hold. I will always be honest with my estimated deadlines for you. I check in several hours a day, and I also have notifications on my cell phone to alert me when I have an interview so I can assure a very quick response. The only time I cannot be reached is when I'm sleeping - I have to, sometime!
I have experience with Google Docs for easy document sharing, as well as Evernote. I have been using the computer since I was young, so I am pretty experienced with most details. I have been contacted to do a variety of transcription jobs, from transcribing dictations to help write books, typing out scanned documents, transcribing captions for embedded YouTube videos, as well as other general transcriptions. More specifically and most notably, I have transcribed for an author over 30 audio hours of dictation for a book. I also have experience transcribing phone call teleseminars that clients hold for their own membership purposes, to which they make into a PDF and send to their members. The majority of my previous works have been under the topic of spirituality, self help, nutrition, holistic healing, and other uplifting audios. However, I can also do medical and legal transcriptions as I research to my best ability all of the terms said, and have done a large amount of marketing business audios too.
I also have the computer skills to help new members of oDesk and people not so skilled at computers if they need help recording their own audio or getting the files to me. I will try my best to help you in any way that I can!
Thanks for reading, and I hope to create a great work relationship with you, and to be the best transcriptionist you've ever had!
