Academic Transcription Services

Anyone doing any research or academic study knows how important it is to have an accurate transcript.

Our academic transcription services are confidential, professional and accurate. Voted the best transcription service by many of our academic users, we transcribe a range of audio and video of university lectures, focus groups, or research – from a few minutes to thousands of audio or video hours.

Subject Specialities

Our transcribers are sourced through our transcription job portal and selected for each job according to their subject specialty. So when an academic project comes in, our Operations Management workflow and teams automatically review the subject matter, speakers’ accents, and sound quality of the recordings and allocate each job accordingly to the most experienced transcribers. We quality check transcripts for consistency on an ongoing basis.

For those using our academic transcription services, we require a university or teaching Institute PO number (rather than a 50% deposit), even for those using our academic transcription services for the first time.  Also, if you are a university or academic department, you can now request set up a group user/departmental account today – contact us for more information now.

Once files have been processed, you will receive a notification with instructions on how to collect your transcripts.
