Working with a transcription service can greatly reduce cost and increase productivity, but how can you choose the best possible service? When researching your options you will want to pay attention to a few key areas.
Is the transcription company employing real-life expert typists or are they relying on speech recognition software that may result in a document filled with spelling and grammatical errors? Using human typists is critical if you want a clean copy of your text.
The typists should be specialized and well-practiced in your particular field. This is especially true for medical and legal dictation which is full of uncommon vocabulary and terminology.
The final result should be professionally formatted and provided to you in a high quality document. It should be properly proof read before submission and your satisfaction should be guaranteed.
When choosing a transcription service, think of it as creating a partnership with a company dedicated to your own success. You are encouraged to check references and interview the company in person or via phone. Finding the right fit can take time but the end results will be rewarding and profitable to your organization.
Again, don’t let the burden of transcribing all the recordings you have weigh you down. Good transcription services are out there. And with just a little research, you can find one that knows your industry…And is ready to meet your needs.
