Professional Service with a Personal Touch


I am not accepting transcription work at the present time.
My sincerest apologies.


Combining digital transcription technology with traditional personalized service, I produce high quality transcripts at a fair and competitive price. Confidentiality is guaranteed and you will be pleased with my quick turnaround time and professional service.


Audio Formats

I transcribe a variety of audio formats including, but not limited to, wav, wma, dss, aiff, mp3 and mp4.

File Transfer

Send me your audio files via SendThisFile transfer service. It is quick, secure and simple to use at no cost to you. Large files up to 100MB can be sent. In addition, all uploads and downloads transferred to and from me through this service are secured using 128-bit SSL encryption.

Special Requests

I will accommodate special formatting you may require such as true or clean verbatim transcription, time-coded transcripts and/or particular templates.

In addition to the security measures noted in File Transfer, I am very willing to sign your Confidentiality Agreement for the protection of sensitive material.

Completed Transcripts

I will deliver your completed transcripts in Word format via e-mail or SendThisFile transfer service - your choice. CD and/or hard copies are available at an additional charge.

Cost to You

My pricing is based on per-audio-hour with a 15-minute minimum charge. Typically, a 1-hour audiotape (a digitally recorded one-to-one person interview with good sound quality) will take me approximately 3 to 4 hours to transcribe and proof at a competitive rate of $25 per hour. Because this estimate depends on variables such as audio content, sound quality, number of speakers and turnaround time required, etc., it is best to contact me directly so that we can discuss your particular needs and I can give you a personal quote.

An invoice for services rendered will be provided at the completion of each transcription job. Payment is due upon receipt with a 7-day grace period. First-time users may be required to pay prior to delivery of completed transcripts. Payment particulars should be discussed with me directly and ahead of time.

For evaluation purposes, I am happy to provide first-time clients with a transcript of a 10-minute portion of audio clip free of charge.
