Transcription Software - Any Recommendations

Recommended Posts

I plan on offering transcription services as part of my business. I have done lots of transcription throughout my career but never digital transcription. I would appreciate some recommendations on transcription software. The only one that I have heard of is ExpressScribe.

 

Can you also provide some feedback on how digital transcription works. How does the client dictate the transcription? Is it done through the same software that I use to transcribe? Is it sent to me in a file through email? Any feedback would be very helpful to understand the process before I am asked to provide this service.

 

Thanks,

Denise

Thanks for the feedback on ExpressScribe. From what I can see here and on the LinkedIn forum, ExpressScribe seems to be the way to go.

 

If a client comes to me and has never done digital transcription, what is the best method/format to recommend to the client to prepare their transcription for me. Should I recommend that they download the free version of ExpressScribe dictate or are there other methods that are common?

 

Lily, do you use the free or paid version of ExpressScribe? What do you charge for transcription services?

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi there, can you use ExpressScribe to transcribe a You Tube video? I'm very new to this and currently just pausing the YT video and then typing into a Word document.

 

Any tips would be very welcome. Many thanks.

 

Teresa.

You may consider downloading the youtube video (YTDownloader is free from Google), converting it to an MP3 file (I use audacity but there are plenty of free software conversion options out there) and buying Dragon Naturally Speaking for audio recordings. This could save you a good bit of time.
