Technology Transcription Services

Partnering with your technology: Looking for accurate technology transcription services for your software or apps? Use our technology transcription services team to get your audio or video transcribed immediately. Own a technology that requires transcription for improving dialect speech to text accuracy? We specialize in many dialects of English.



Software developers or technology companies that offer audio or video recording services, speech to text solutions, or voice recognition are challenged to offer accurate transcription. On the other hand, users of speech to text apps abound but are often disappointed by their lack of accuracy. So it makes sense that there would be an app that can churn out a transcript of your audio and video, right?

While developers have increasingly improved their technologies and for individuals there are certainly many speech and voice recognition platforms out there (just look at Siri, Cortana, and Google Voice, for a start!) these are pretty selective in what they can handle even today. Most of the time, as long as it’s a single voice North American dialect, it works ok. But what about discussions with a wider variety of accents? Try getting a Scotsman to ask Siri for a sandwich!

Human Partnering

While speech to text software may be able to convert speech produced in a controlled environment, we estimate that over 70% of audio doesn’t fit into that category. That’s where we come in! Our dedicated team of transcribers with finely tuned (human!) ears can be of assistance.

All the Siris and Cortanas out there need still require speech software training somehow and use solutions such as deep neural networks to achieve this. For this reason, you still need human transcribers fluent in the dialect or accent if you need an accurate transcription. As a technology company, you can also request our transcribers to help build your relevant dialect libraries. We can work with any custom transcription solution to support your needs.

Technology Transcription Options

A couple of recommendations and suggestions are noted.

Full Verbatim Format is a great choice to include if you need your technology to learn all the stutters and crutch words a speaker might use.

Time codes are of great help to demarcate different instances of an utterance. This ensures your speech training module can accurately align the audio with the text to register the phonemes.

Custom transcripts built for your specification, such as including sound bytes or voice iterations, help evolve the speech recognition capabilities of speech to text apps.

Holistic solutions for call centers (such as Machine Transcription Polishing), translation, interpretation, or insurance technologies are available.

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.
