Our Rates

Verbal Ink makes the pricing of our transcription services simple so that there are no hidden surprises. You know upfront what the cost of your project will be, and we take great pride in making this process as easy for you as possible.

We price our audio on a per minute rate. This means that based on the parameters of your project, you can calculate your cost by the number of minutes in your audio. We also offer academic, non-profit, and volume discounts, so please feel free to ask us about these.

Simply use our calculator to estimate the cost of your project. Getting started uploading your audio to us only takes a couple of minutes.
