Detailed Notes Transcription
Take Note provides transcription options to suit any purpose, with varying levels of detail available depending on your needs for the desired transcript and final project budget constraints.
Audio & Video
You can opt for verbatim transcription - which gives you a full transcript of the audio file in its entirety, but with filler words such as umm’s & err’s removed. Alternatively, if these are necessary or provide useful context (e.g. in legal cases or where text analytics are useful) we can leave them in.
Audio & Video
Our Detailed Notes are more focused and easier to review, without losing any of the meaningful content. Whilst retaining full participant responses, our transcribers summarise moderator questions and remove any off-topic small talk; meaning we're able to provide a transcript at a lower price than a full verbatim that can still provide you with all the important information you need.
What are Detailed Notes?
Our Detailed Notes transcripts are the most versatile and accessible transcripts on the market. 'Detailed Notes' retain word-for-word accuracy of participant responses but off-topic chit-chat is removed and questions are summarised. This can save you having to work through all of the content that doesn't add any value.
A Detailed Notes transcript is focused and easy to review without losing any of the meaningful content. These transcripts are the ideal format for someone looking for a concise record of the facts. They let you understand the important things said, pick out key quotes and make practical decisions without being waylaid with unnecessary detail.
Whether transcribing meetings, focus groups or interviews the kind of concise detail delivered by detailed notes provides a much quicker experience and retains everything important.
What do we remove?
Don’t worry- we’ll be sure to leave in all the important stuff.

This edited option is also cheaper and is a great option to explore. They prove that sometimes the most valuable transcript is a result of what’s not included rather than an exact record of speech regardless of relevance.
However, this doesn’t mean you will receive a transcript that skimps on context, our transcribers are trained to ensure the meaning of a sentence always remains intact.
Not many transcription services give you this option, so if you want efficient transcriptions that capture the basic information in an easy to digest format, this is your answer.
Why Detailed Notes?
Generally, detailed notes work well for individuals and enterprises seeking concise records for fact-checking and passing on information that doesn’t need every word recorded. Types of audio recordings that especially benefit from the detailed notes transcription format include interviews, meetings and focus groups, to name a few.
As detailed notes are a little simpler to produce, they are the cheaper transcription option. Many companies find that they’re an affordable way to achieve essential transcripts that could otherwise be costly — while actually getting an easier to review, and more to the point outcome. If you’re looking for an affordable transcription of audio files for a range of basic business functions, then detailed notes should be your first choice.
If you are looking for a word for word transcript of everything that was said though, look no further than our verbatim transcription service.
