The workflow of today's professionals has become more complicated and online; with audio transcription rising in demand. Whether you're a doctor, lawyer, or journalist it's crucial to find the best possible transcripts service that meets your needs.
Key qualities that you should look for when choosing a transcription service should include:
- Speed of delivery

- Simple service journey
These priorities can be the deciding factor behind choosing an online transcription service. Here, we'll cover these points in detail and compare the performance of Scribblr.ai.
Depending on the size of an audio/ or video file, transcripts can take up to a few hours, days or even weeks. Sometimes time is not on our side, and getting transcripts ASAP is ideal. Pretty much any online service will charge additional rushing fees to have files delivered under 24 hours of purchase; price ranging from $1.50-$3.00 per minute of audio.
Scribblr.ai: The standard rate of return for all files under 2 hours, is 24 hours. Anything greater than this will take a maximum of 96 hours to produce. This is all under our $1 minute price guarantee for any size file. Remember, with Scribblr.ai your first 10 minutes of audio are transcribed free of charge!
But what if I need my transcript ASAP? Scribblr.ai has you covered with their express delivery service, for an additional $1 a minute. The table below shows the average turn around time compared to the express delivery system:
When looking for a good transcription service, it may be tempting to go for a cheap text-speech detector or automated voice recognition software. This method is very inaccurate, and prone to low quality transcripts that read like gibberish. Accents, multiple speakers, or background noise all play a part in determining quality. To counter this, the best quality services employ real humans to hear, play-back, and edit the transcripts to ensure accurate, quality transcripts.
Scribblr.ai: Accuracy is one of the three major promises to our customers , $1 per minute, 24hr average delivery time, and 99% accurate guaranteed. Thanks to our team of dedicated transcribers, Scribblr.ai can create, proof-read, and edit out any imperfections, mistakes, or unnecessary text based on customer feedback.
Fees and Pricing
Pricing online can be a tricky, and even devious thing to figure out. Some services hide additional fees whether it's for delivery, multiple speakers, accents, or file size. So don't let low rates of a few cents per minute fool you, additional fees add up to a more expensive transcript. Standard fees typically relate to:
- Verbatim fees: Includes all spoken words (including um/ ah)
- Nonverbal communication: Such as 'music', background noise etc.
- Timestamps: A stamp of when the word was spoken during the audio file.
Online services can vary when it comes to the quality and reliability of its services. If you run into a technical problem, or have specific queries about anything, services should be quick to respond and turn-over any issues. Additionally, the transcripts should be received on time without unexpected delays. Reading reviews/ online users views on the product also helps gauge the services reliability.
