Investigation Transcription Options

When the transcript is to be presented in court proceedings, we issue a Certificate of Authenticity – at no extra charge – which can be presented in court, verifying that Way With Words has completed the transcript with the highest quality possible, commensurate with the quality of the audio recording.

We hire only the best skilled and most experienced individuals in the transcription field, meaning we can provide accurate, detailed transcriptions of investigative notes for medical, insurance and scientific cases.

Investigative Transcription

We provide investigation transcription services for attorneys, police departments, detectives, private investigators, law firms and even individuals. Our goal is to ensure that every investigation transcript we complete is accurate, formatted to our clients’ specific needs and instructions, delivered within our clients’ budgets and timeframes. Deadline is critical as there must be suitable preparation time prior to a court date. Our investigation transcription services can begin your transcript as soon as we receive your audio or video. If urgency isn’t that imperative, we also offer longer turnarounds (see our calculator above).

Our investigation transcription services help bring order to the vast amounts of information revealed through the investigative process. We are trained and experienced in all types of investigation transcription services, including investigations by police into suspects or crime witnesses, solicitor-client discourse, conversations between lawyers and legal professionals, and even multi-party investigations. Some transcripts are for legal reference, others for internal use.

During the course of any investigation, there are hundreds or even thousands of hours of recordings, surveillance tapes, videos made and notes taken. The video and audio content included in these tapes and recordings are of incredible value. It must be available for review and analysis by both the investigators and the legal professionals who will eventually be handling the case. That’s why it’s so important to have trustworthy, professional investigation transcription services ready and available when you need them. And one that can handle all of your investigation transcription needs.
