Transcription Process


Transcription is the process of converting audio into a document. A synonym for transcription is transcribing.

If you have ever tried transcribing you will know that it is difficult and time consuming. It requires much concentration, perseverence and time, to transcribe audio into text. The Top Transcription process takes all that away and makes transcribing your audio a simple, quick and pleasant experience.


You request a Quotation. This is done via our Transcription Quotation page. You have the option to upload your audio or video or provide us with the number of minutes to be transcribed and a quote will be generated automatically. You have further options of selecting Time-Stamps or opting for Full Verbatim or Clean Verbatim as well as which template you prefer.

Next step is to Checkout and proceed to payment or raise a purchase order if that how your company works.

We then get our team of transcribers to work. Learn more how we convert audio to text.

Once your audio has been transcribed our proofreaders then proofread it to ensure accuracy.

How do you Transcribe?


Our Transcriptions are done by people and not software. Automatic transcription software produces very poor quality transcripts. The best way to get an accurate transcription is to have a person type it and then have a proofreader check it. That is how we transcribe and is the reason we able to produce the highest quality transcripts. A poor quality transcript is really not worth the paper it is written on.
