Key Use Cases
Our Academic Transcripts are designed to help with your academic work in a number of ways.
We make researching for your dissertation easy.
If your dissertation requires a lot of audio or video primary sources, these can be tricky to parse for information. Our transcripts help make the process of information gathering quicker and easier for you.
Convert seminars into useful notes.
Seminars can be a goldmine of useful information. Use our handy mobile transcription app to record them with crystal clear clarity and upload them directly to us for transcription.
Never miss a fact or stat
Take our iOS transcription app into the lecture hall and record for quick and easy access to a full range of lecture transcripts. Make sure that an important fact never goes over your head.
Rework webinars your way.
We can also transcribe the audio from video sources like webinars. Convert these valuable resources into searchable transcripts.
Services built around your needs
Every academic learns in a subtly different way. Every project has slightly different needs. That’s why we’re proud to offer a range of different Academic Transcription Services.
These academic transcripts give you a word-for-word account of everything that’s said, with distractions like “errs”, “umms”, “aahs” false starts and repetitions edited out. You can even add optional extras like timestamps and identification for multiple speakers.
Sometimes, all those “errs”, “umms”, “aahs” and other vocal tics add much-needed context and subtext. If you need these you can keep them in.
Our Detailed Notes service delivers shorter transcriptions with small talk and off-topic chat removed. We trim away the distractions leaving you with easier access to the information you need.
