Audio + Video Transcription
Bright Eyes provides accurate and confidential audio or video transcription for single or multi-voice interviews, meetings, speeches, medical, psychological, legal, and general dictation, reports, television and radio media, depositions, seminars, classes and lectures, focus groups . . . you name it! We accept micro or standard casette tapes, CDs, DVDs, and most digital computer audio or video files (i.e. mp3, wav, ogg, dss, divx, mpeg, avi, etc.).
Transcription rates are calculated by the minute, not by the page or line, meaning you don't have to worry about us "padding" documents to crank out as many pages/lines as possible. Come into working with us knowing exactly how much you will be charged; no suprises.
Where do we go from here?
You can email or snail mail your files or tapes from anywhere in the world, and they will be returned in Microsoft® Word or Corel® WordPerfect format. Transcripts are double-spaced and typed in a 12-point Arial font with 1" margins unless requested otherwise. All work is done by a native-born English speaker; projects that come through Bright Eyes are NEVER outsourced or sent overseas. You can be rest assured that your work is given expert attention and fully guaranteed.
Transcription style choices vary. Verbatim transcripts include "ums," "ahs," "likes," and "you knows," where Edited-for-Clarity transcripts omit such verbal ticks, keeping the rest of the content intact.
