Read on to learn more about how to work with Zoom Transcription Services.
We can accept virtually all audio/video formats. We prefer not to work with cassette tapes for two reasons. The quality is inferior to digital recordings which may, sometimes, result in a less than perfect transcript. We must also take the extra step of digitizing the audio for assignment to our transcriptionists. However, we'll work with you to come up with an optimal solution.
Simply put, time coding requires special software, a specially-trained transcriptionist, and generally takes more time than standard dictation.
Use the Contact Form to provide details about your project:
We'll respond via email with a price quote and, if agreed, a contract will be emailed for signature.
Upon receipt of signed contract, we'll get busy transcribing! Your completed transcript will be emailed
to you upon completion. An invoice will be sent and payment is expected upon receipt of invoice.
Of course. However, the rates will be charged on a "per page" basis. Our usual rate is $3.00 per page. This may translate into a different number of typed pages. These rates may vary depending on the length of the document and/or difficulty of assignment (i.e., poor penmanship). If unsure, submit a page for a free estimate of the total cost. We'll be happy to work with you.
All transcriptions are proofread twice before being delivered. In the case of five or fewer flagged items (see Transcription Guidelines), we will make every effort to accommodate your request for corrections at no charge. However, we cannot be responsible for bad audio. If large sections of the audio (more than five flagged items) were unintelligible, we will only make corrections on a payment basis. Price will depend on the amount of re-work required.
We prefer payment via PayPal for the first job that Zoom Transcription completes for you. It’s fast, safe and allows you to pay using any credit card even if you don’t have an account. We also accept payments via the Wave online payment processor. For ongoing projects, Zoom may arrange to bill monthly.
We will contact you with any discrepancies and work will not begin on your job until the appropriate action is taken.
24/7. However, turnaround times are based on business days (Monday through Friday). For example, a 24-hour TAT submitted on Friday at 3:00 pm will be available on the following Monday by 3:00 pm. Exceptions can be made for extreme emergencies at an extra charge.
Although we are not in the business of strictly medical transcription, all Zoom clients are treated with the same level of confidentiality as outlined in HIPAA regulations regarding privacy. Our Confidentiality Policy is provided in your contract when you begin working with us. All transcriptionists employed by Zoom Transcription Services are required to understand, agree to, and sign our Confidentiality Policy.
