Transcription Process and Pricing

 
Getting the spoken word into text requires expertise in language, punctuation and knowledge of the speaker's content. Bell Services has that expertise. We have over 40 years experience in providing accurate transcripts for the legal, medical, environmental, construction, human resource and academic areas. We have specialized in producing quality output of expert witness, hearings, conferences, and focus groups.

The following information is an audio guideline for our audio transcription services. We can transcribe audio from audiotape, video, telephone, web, and conference calls. If your needs require you to have real-time transcription of the spoken word, our experienced court reporting and closed captioning divisions can be at your service.

Normal Provided Output: 25 lines of double space text on paper or electronic formats (please let us know if you require a different format. Medical by line or hourly rate).
