Do I need Transcription for my podcast?
Do you need it? Short answer, no. You can host a podcast without offering transcripts to your audience. That being said, if you're wanting to stay relevant in today's world of 550,000+ podcast shows, you should be doing everything in your power to add the most value possible. Why you should incorporate transcription.
How soon can I expect my transcript? Do you offer rush services?
Our basic service ($0.95 per minute of audio) includes transcripts being returned to you within 48 hours. We do offer rush services (24 hours) at a rate of $2.00 per minute of audio. Make sure you specify if you need rush delivery when you upload your media file!
Can you remove filler words?
Of course! We automatically remove filler words in our transcripts such as 'um,' 'uh,' 'you know,' et cetera. This ensures a seamless read for your audience, and there's no extra cost to you!
How can I submit my digital files for transcription?
If your file is available online, you can send us a link. We also accept links to Dropbox, or just share the whole digital file via email at CustomerShare@podcastersolutions.com.
CAn you place timestamps in the transcript?
We do offer timestamps at an additional rate of $0.20 per minute of audio. Make sure you specify when sharing your media if you'd like to add this service!
Who does the transcription? Will it be accurate?
Unlike many of the transcription companies out there, our transcription work is ALL done by real people that are native of your country. At this time, we offer natives in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia. This ensures proper spelling when there are variations among English speaking dialects. After transcription is complete, they are submitted to be professionally reviewed and formatted, and returned back to you in Word or PDF format, according to your preference.
