"Not sure what service matches your requirements?"
At Take Note, we understand that everyone’s needs are slightly different. We work hard to match the right service to each and every customer. If you’re not quite sure which of our audio, video or on-site transcription services you need, take a look at the chart below.
This will allow you to compare our services. However, if you’d like to talk to a member of our team in person please don’t hesitate to get in touch over the phone, email or via live chat.

What's included - Verbatim
Our Verbatim service delivers a full word-for-word transcript of your audio file in its entirety. While all the “umms”, “errs”, false starts, “likes”, “kind of” and “y’know” are removed (as standard), we leave in off-topic small talk and other deviations. This makes for a longer transcript that is rich in all of the important and non-important detail. Perfect for legal recording or situations where the text is being specifically analysed for emotion, hesitance or uncertainty.
What's included - Detailed Notes
Spoken language isn’t always at its most efficient when written down. It can take detours which are more distracting when reading than when listening. If you need to further accelerate the review process, Detailed Notes transcripts take additional steps by removing off-topic chit-chat and summarising interview questions. So you enjoy richly detailed but easy to follow notes that extract the real value. Perfect for transcribing interviews and focus groups but can be used for any meeting where every word spoken isn’t necessary.

Customise your transcript
We offer an extensive range of additional service allowing you to customise your transcript to your exact requirements. Simply make the relevant selections when you upload your file or get a quote.
Let us know how many different people contribute to the discussion. Make the conversation easier to follow by choosing timestamps for every speaker and speaker identification.
Timestamps every speaker
Includes an accurate timestamp each time the speaker changes within your Verbatim or Detailed Notes transcript.
Each speaker named or uniquely identified before their speech. Available for Verbatim, Detailed Notes and Captions.
Removal of respondents' personally-identifying information, perfect for GDPR compliance. If Speaker Identification is also selected, respondents will be identified with a unique ID, rather than by name. Available for Detailed Notes & Verbatim transcripts.
As standard, our transcripts are returned in British English. Select this option to use US English instead to either match the origin or your content or to reflect the language used within your organisation. Available across the range of transcription outputs.
Include Ums and Errs
Add this option to your Verbatim transcript when you need a full account of everything that is uttered. You’ll receive a text output of every spoken word, including all the ums, errs, hesitations and repetitions.
Choose this option if your content contains significant medical, legal, technical, or industry-specific terms to ensure they can be captured accurately by specialist transcribers. Available across the range of transcription options.
Speed up the review process of your Detailed Notes transcript with the richest quotes highlighted in yellow for you. The service has been designed to help you easily scan the transcript and identify the nuggets of insight.
All our transcripts come with a 99% accuracy guarantee. Our optional double proofreading service will take that guarantee to 99.9%, ideal for transcripts that you plan to publish, or those that contain heavy technical terminology. Available across all the transcription types.
Captioning and Subtitles
We use a mixture of high-quality human transcription and speech recognition technology to create cost-effective captions.
We offer both per-word timecoding in an XML file, or captions in SRT file; the most common captions format and compatible with a wide range of video platforms and players.
The timecoding is most accurate and works best for recordings with clear audio and speech.
Included as standard:
- Formatted transcripts, alongside XML and SRT captions.
- Speaker differentiation in files with 3 speakers or less
- Male/Female speaker differentiation for groups of 4 or more speakers
- Option to download SRT with or without speaker labels
- Take Note’s 99% accuracy guarantee for transcription. Timecoding accuracy will primarily depend on the quality of the audio.
