Since 2003, we've tackled all kinds of projects, from wiretaps to fifteen person focus groups. Here are some of the more common types of transcription services that Verbal Ink provides:
Over the last nine years, Verbal Ink transcriptionists have created transcripts from literally thousands of hours of audio and video recordings. Each and every one of these transcripts has been guaranteed by Verbal Ink to have a 98% or better rate of accuracy. We’re capable of offering such high quality transcription services because all of our hundreds of transcriptionists are real people, not robots or algorithms. Additionally, they're all located in the United States - on principle, Verbal Ink will never outsource work overseas.
Just as importantly, our transcriptionists are very smart, and very good at their jobs. With specialties in medical and legal services, linguistics, law enforcement, and education, our transcriptionists’ diverse backgrounds allow us to pair your project with a transcriber who has expertise in your area. They’ve tackled all sorts of subjects, from microbiology to astrophysics - and if they don’t recognize an arcane term, they’re more than happy to do some Google sleuthing and Wikipedia hunting. In short, we guarantee that you’re going to receive an accurate transcript from us.

We pride ourselves on our transparency here at Verbal Ink, so we’re going to reveal exactly how your transcript is created:
Our friendly customer - that's you! - signs up on the Verbal Ink website. Your dedicated Account Executive introduces him or herself by email and, if you’d like, with a brief phone call.
You upload your audio or video recording to our secure server, along with a few simple details about the number of speakers, how quickly you’d like to receive your transcript, and any special features you’d like to be included. At this point, you get to relax - there’s nothing left for you to do!
Your Account Executive receives the recording, gives it a quick listen, and assigns it to one of our trusty transcriptionists. If the Account Executive has any questions about the recording, they’ll give you a call or send you an email - before the transcript is started.
The transcriptionist will create a professionally formatted, impeccably accurate transcript from your recording. The transcript will be saved as a Microsoft Word document, so that you can easily search it, copy it, and share it with others.
The transcriptionist will return the transcript to your Account Executive, who will then give the transcript one final quality check. Satisfied that the transcript meets Verbal Ink’s standards, your Account Executive will email it to you, on or before the due date that you requested. At that point, your credit card will be billed and the project will be complete.
