Trusted, reliable recording to text
Dictation typing services can dramatically improve the turnaround time for work and, most importantly, let you work from wherever you want.
All you need to do is simply record your speech and upload the recording to our audio transcribing services. You tell us how quickly you want the dictation transcript returned, and we do the rest. So, whether you are a teacher, a doctor, an investigator, a student, an attorney, or an author, our dictation typing services make it this easy – you talk and we type!
Doing it the right way
We recommend a digital dictaphone, as this creates an audio file with the same concept as a standard cassette Dictaphone but the sound is of a far superior quality. In addition, digital recorders look very similar to traditional dictation machines but use either built-in memory or removable memory cards, typically 16 MB to 512 MB in size. Otherwise, just use your smartphone by searching and downloading one of the many popular recording apps. For those of you who want to “do-it-yourself”
Here is a quick list of the TOP 5 Dictation solutions for you to look at:
- Dragon Professional Individual – Nifty extra features including transcription, expensive.
- Dragon Anywhere – High-quality speech recognition. Syncs with desktop Dragon software. Dictation limited to within the app. Requires internet connection to run.
- Google Docs Voice Typing – Platforms: Chrome browser, Android, iOS. Costs nothing. Good accuracy for a free solution. Limited to Chrome browser. Dictation and document formatting only.
- Windows 10 Speech Recognition – Microsoft’s desktop OS has fully integrated voice recognition. Platforms: Windows 10. Voice commands, dictation. Fully integrated with Windows. No extra cost. Doesn’t offer the best accuracy (however training helps).
Way With Words’ standard transcription service is calculated on a per audio or video minute rate. Pricing depends on the turnaround time chosen and the add-on options selected. The longer the turnaround and the fewer the add-ons selected, the lower the price. Use our calculator below to get started.

How do I send you my files?
Audio and video files are uploaded via our secure online workflow system. We do not accept links or physical discs; all work is processed via our workflow system.
Once files have been processed, you will receive a notification with instructions on how to collect your transcripts.
How is the cost calculated?
Costs are calculated per recorded minute and are dependent on turnaround time selected. All seconds are rounded up to the next minute. For budget options, longer turnarounds are available.
Audio quality and number of speakers do not affect the cost. Default transcript is Standard Template and Intelligent Verbatim (see examples above). Time Coding, Full Verbatim and Special Formatting options incur a surcharge.
How long are quotes valid?
Quotes are valid for 30 days from date of quotation. Save your job as a draft should you wish to complete your order at a later stage.

How are deadlines calculated?
The 1-Day to 10-Day turnaround times are calculated in business days only, and do not include weekends. Express orders can be returned over weekends, with prior notification.
Quality and accuracy
Another advantage of digital recording is the lack of mechanical noise to interfere with the sounds you want to hear – your voice. Not only does this make the quality better, but once your recording is in digital format, it can be duplicated any number of times without losing any quality. Your words are critical, and the better the quality of the recording, the more your words can be heard (and transcribed) with clarity and assurance. For recording tips and hints read our guide for quality recording sound.
Quick and easy
Moreover, as a single computer file, it can be downloaded or transferred almost immediately from one person to the next. So no courier service (like in the old days) is required and the turnaround time is drastically reduced. As we have said, our dictation typing services can essentially begin immediately on your recording.
