Transcription Services Rates – Audio & Video

Looking for reasonably priced but quality transcripts? Our transcription service rates are affordable at any turnaround and provide you with only the best quality.

Rates & Pricing

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.

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.

We Offer

How We Calculate Our Rates

As with all other services, transcription services rates vary based on a number of things such as the company offering the service, the quality of the service, the speed of the service, and the complexity of the service. So when investigating transcription services rates, it is important to consider all of these factors.

Our transcription services rates are simple to determine as our rates are clear and upfront and do not inflate the way many other transcription services do for poor sound quality, for increasing the number of speakers in the recording, or for thick, difficult, and occasionally esoteric accents.

We offer several turnaround options (from Express – where we get as close as possible to live transcription services, through to a range of days) with one flat rate for each option. Our transcription services rates remain the same for each turnaround – regardless of the sound quality of the audio (whether it is crystal clear or there’s strong whooshing wind in the background or the clank of cutlery and other conversations in a recording done within a busy restaurant). If you are still planning to record your audio or video then also read our quick tips or recording guidelines for quality sound for transcription purposes.

Our transcription service rates also remain the same rate whether there is one speaker in a recording (as with a dictation), two speakers (such as interviews) or ten speakers (such as a business meeting or a focus group)!

We also adhere to the same up-front transcription services rates for all English dialects across to more challenging speech to text conversations that our assessed and trained transcribers can accurately follow including difficult accents, lisping, or stuttering.

When browsing through websites to determine transcription services rates, be sure to read any and all small print!

Many service providers only tell you the rate is dependable (for sound quality and accents) when the work is underway! We provide a complete and upfront transcription rate!

Why Choose Way With Words

  • Accurate transcripts to suit your budget.
  • All English dialects and accents.
  • Any recording sound quality – no extra charge.
  • Handpicked transcribers and subject experts.
  • Strict security and confidentiality policy.
