★ Customer Requests Expertly Handled ★

The StoryCorps project —

for whom we’ve transcribed thousands of interviews embodying the very fabric of the American experience, offered us this kudo:

“While they do come in just short of infallible, it’s such a rarity that they get anything wrong, despite sending them every known accent, Anglophone dialect, content area, and rate of speech.”

A prolific seminary institution —

for whom we mobilized a dedicated team of theological experts to transcribe over 1600 hours of recordings in just 3 months, provided us with this depiction of the importance of human ingenuity:

“The insufficient quality of computer-generated transcriptions led us to explore options for manual transcription, and after researching and obtaining recommendations from specialists, we selected the Audio Transcription Center, based on their reputation in the industry, track record of accuracy, and practice of contracting transcribers with subject knowledge suiting their specific nature of the material.

They demonstrate the research value of highly accurate transcriptions, especially when multiplied across thousands of recordings.”

Judith Bishop

a two time Associated Press Award winner, provided this appreciation of the importance of speed and accuracy:

“I turned to Michael Sesling and his Audio Transcription Center team to provide verbatim transcripts. Throughout my career at WABC, PBS, CNBC and NPR, I used other transcription services in New York City and Miami where I was based. They did a good job, but Michael and his team did an excellent job! The transcripts were accurate, the turnarounds were quick, and the price was right.”
