Digital Transcription Services - An Overview Digital transcription services allow you to get your documentation completed accurately and within customized turnaround time A diligent and hardworking nurse, Mae Watson was engaged in research with the aim of advancing her professional career. Her research topic was the challenges involved in improving women’s health. She needed to conduct in-depth interviews with the women in her sample. Mae bought a good quality digital recorder for the purpose. She had heard that handheld digital recorders were ideal for research interviews as they are compact, easy to manage and offered crystal clear recordings. Once the interviews were over, she had to get the transcripts ready. In other words, she needed to get her audio-taped interviews converted into well-formatted text. But there was so much more she had to do like literature review, collection of secondary data, and so on. That’s when she decided to try digital transcription services. And she did not regret her decision. The professional transcription company that she outsourced her documentation tasks to was able to provide her with accurate transcripts within the specified time, leaving her with all the time she needed to get on with the rest of her work. How do Digital Transcription Services Work? The transcription company offered Mae several choices to send her digital recordings to them – browser-based encrypted file transfer, e-mail, or upload to their secure FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server. She chose the FTP option as her files were quite large and also because this would ensure data security. Logging in with the user name and password that the company provided her with, she uploaded her audio recordings on the FTP site from where the transcriptionist could download and transcribe them Impressive Quality By partnering with this experienced transcription service provider, Mae got excellent transcript quality. Her files were up to 99% accurate as the company had stringent quality checks in place to ensure this. There were no issues as far as language, grammar, and subject was concerned as they had trained and experienced personnel doing the transcription. The files were formatted as specified and delivered in time to meet her deadlines.
