Service options with varying levels of detail are available to suit the purpose of your desired transcript and final project budget constraints.
Audio & Video
You can opt for a Verbatim Transcript - which gives you a full transcript of the audio file in its entirety but with filler words such as umm's & err's removed. Alternatively, if these are necessary or provide useful context (e.g. in legal cases or where text analytics are useful) we can leave them in.
Audio & Video
Intelligent Verbatim transcripts are more focused and easier to review, without losing any of the meaningful content. Whilst retaining full participant responses, our transcribers summarize moderator questions and remove any off-topic small talk. You receive a transcript that's quicker and easier to review and that still provides all the important information you need.
What is Verbatim?
Verbatim is a word-for-word record of what was originally spoken. A full transcript of the audio file in its entirety, but with filler words such as umm's & err's removed. Our elite team of transcribers are able to parse some of the worst audio quality and accurately identify speakers. If you want every little detail this is the service for you.
In reality, even if you want an 'exact' transcript, you don't actually want every little noise on the recording written down on paper. False starts, stutters, 'ums' and 'errs' - all distract from the readability of your transcript. Verbit's human transcription services will remove these irrelevant utterances, delivering a far cleaner and easier-to-read transcript. These transcripts are normally called 'verbatim'.
Many will think they need a full verbatim transcription with little idea of how the final transcript will actually look and read. Full verbatim transcripts can be unbearably difficult to digest, with everything from coughs and sneezing recorded in the written word.
But if you need every um and err included, we can do that too.
Verbatim is the preferred choice for a number of professions and business procedures due to the sensitive nature of the discussion and the detail required.
In cases such as interviews and subtitles on video files, verbatim is the option that achieves the readable, accurate transcription needed. High accuracy and levels of detail can also be vital for capturing ideas or quoting team members in meetings with the necessary care.
Legal teams, for example, use our Verbatim service as they often require a word-for-word record of testimonies or hearings.
The following customisation options allow you to tailor your transcription to your needs.
Speaker Identification: Each speaker will be named or uniquely identified before they speak.
Timestamps: Accurate time stamps each time the speaker changes.
Include Ums and Errs: Our Verbatim option automatically excludes false starts, hesitations, ums and errs but if you want them included just add this feature during the quoting phase.
US English: Your transcript will be returned using US English.
