Clients should expect transcription of recordings to take four times the length of the project. Two examples of cost estimates are below.
Example 1: 1 hour of recording x 4 hours of transcript preparation = 4 hours
Example 2: 1 hour of recording x 5.5 hours of timecoded transcript preparation = 5.5 hours
The quality of the recording, accents, and terms can affect cost and turnaround time.
