Let's say you found a great company advertising less than half of what you are currently paying. Most reasonable people who think, it's worth a shot and they try it. When the transcript is returned is when the fun starts.
Do you notice minor typos right away? No problem, you can fix those, after all you are getting a great deal. As you skim through the transcript you notice that some sentences just do not make sense. This wasn't what you heard during your interview or speech. Now you pull up the audio and decide to listen again. You could be wrong.
Upon listening to the audio you realize that complete sentences are missing and some don't even fit into the context of the conversation. What the heck is going on here!
Well, before you get upset you have to remember you are getting a good deal and it is all transcribed.
After about 30 minutes into the one hour audio file you decide to give up. You cannot make all of the corrections, you are just too frustrated and it will take too much time. In a bind, you now must contact your regular transcriptionist and see if she can get this transcribed for you right away - you need it by morning.
Well sure she can, but there is a rush fee. The transcript is returned by morning, you skim over it and, of course, it looks good. A catastrophe avoided thanks to your reliable transcriptionist.
Now, how much did this 60 minute file cost you again? How much are you saving with cheap transcription?
