The cost is easy to figure out – one low rate per audio minute! Just remember, this rate stays the same whether you have one speaker or 17 speakers in your file; the rate stays the same whether you have clear sound quality or very poor sound quality; the rate stays the same regardless of the number or difficulty of accents in your audio. One rate. It’s that simple. That’s why we consider ourselves the best transcription service out there!

Way With Words cheap transcription services are simple to use: you upload your audio, we transcribe, you get notified when your transcripts are ready to collect!
