Live Transcription Services

It’s not impossible to be fast and accurate at the same time – that’s what we strive for with our live transcription services. While other transcription providers tell you how quickly your file can be transcribed, we work the opposite way: you tell us. You want your transcript back in a few hours or overnight? That’s fine. Do you want your transcript completed as soon as the audio recording ends or someone is busy speaking? Not a problem for us to look at the fastest way to do this.


  • Surprisingly Good Thank you for the service, by the way, it was excellent.

    Heard Good Things Have heard good things about them. Understand why they need to be selective, believe they recently opened up for Afrikaans 🙂

Transcription EXPRESS

We are presently working on a partnered service that will soon offer hybrid transcription – using both machine and humans together. Our speech to text solution will allow users to access live transcription services that provide transcripts immediately on completion of any speech. Importantly, our focus is always to ensure transcripts are absolutely accurate. While machine transcription does already exist, current machine or speech to text solutions still lag behind on accuracy depending on language and dialects at this stage – sometimes still well below 90%. In the meantime, we can still offer you our EXPRESS or fast transcription services using our excellent human teams at this time.

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.

Additional Services

Our captioning rates are also calculated per video minute, while our custom audio to text solution pricing is negotiable – depending on your required volume and conditions of service.

Fast Transcripts With Options

The Way With Words live transcription service offers an EXPRESS turnaround (under 24 hours) – that still includes all the bells and whistles: two free time stamps per transcript page; no extra charge for multiple accents or difficult terminology or numerous speakers. Unlike other automatic transcription products such as otter transcription, google live transcribe and others, our 99%+ accuracy speaks for itself immediately.

When your file comes in for an EXPRESS turnaround, we get right to work. We listen to the file and allocate it to a ready-and-waiting transcriber (or captioner) who begins transcribing immediately. If you need the transcript super quick, we divide your audio into smaller sections and get several transcribers working on these sections simultaneously.

A dedicated Operations Manager coordinates the project and allocates to several transcribers. Then, as the transcribers complete and uploads the sections, our Operations team and workflow system “stitch” the pieces of your transcript back together into one fluid document and ensure consistency – fast!

All Subjects

No matter what you need to have transcribed, we’ll live transcribe it fast and accurately and without charging you a fortune. Whether you need youtube videos, podcasts, interviews, focus groups, legal or medical documents, your research or the next chapter of the book you are dictating, or any other kind of transcription, we know you need an accurate, inexpensive and fast transcription solution. Those are precisely the qualities around which we’ve built our first stage live transcription services.

When you choose one of our EXPRESS live transcription services option for your transcription needs, you can be sure that you’ll be extremely satisfied with your transcript, and happy for the speed of the turnaround.

Way With Words transcription services provide the most experienced and highly trained transcriptionists in the industry. Our transcribers are more than qualified to transcribe your audio and video files for you. They transcribe files into accurate, grammatically correct transcripts all day, every day, so when we say they are experts and speed and accuracy, we mean it. All our transcribers are all recruited, trained, assessed and vetted to ensure the highest quality of transcription is available to meet your requirement.
