Q. Is Accuracy More Important Than Speed in Transcription?

In terms of transcription, accuracy is the most important, and speed is a close second. When looking for transcription services, it is critical to find a company that focuses on these two factors. A transcriptionist should provide at least 98% accuracy, as well as get the job done in a reliable, timely manner.

Q. Why is Confidentiality Adherence Crucial When Choosing a Transcription Company?

Confidentiality is a critical factor when choosing a transcription service company because an audio file often includes sensitive data. All transcription companies make their transcribers abide by a strict NDA policy. You wouldn’t want a conversation you had with your doctor or lawyer going public, would you? We take confidentiality very seriously.
