How Much Are Transcription Services?

Transcription rates vary with the type of transcripts you require. To keep billing predictable, we offer per-hour rates for audio and video transcription, and per-page rates for PDF-to-Word transcription.

Audio/video transcription rates are
per hour of media (not per hours worked),
starting at $129/AH.

(After the initial 1-hour minimum invoice,
audio and video transcription rates
are rounded to the nearest minute.)

Text-to-Word* transcription rates
start at $4/page
with a $27 processing fee per file.
*This covers transcribing ANY TYPE of handwritten or
typed 
document into a Microsoft Word file.

With nearly every order, get an exact estimate,
to the penny, before your project ever begins.
