The Perfect Word can handle almost any transcription including:
Some clients prefer one of the options below over the other, so I offer both choices.

Option 1: Per Hour of Work

I charge $26 per hour of work. Proofreading against the recording is included.

The cost to transcribe your recording is determined by several factors including length, audio quality, number of speakers, are time stamps needed, etcetera.

As an example, the estimated cost for a clear 60-minute recording with no more than two speakers would be $91.00.

Option 2: By Audio Minute

This option offers a range of $1.50 to $2.15 per audio minute depending on quality of audio and number of people. Proofreading against the recording is included.

As an example, a 60-minute clear recording with two people is around $91.80.

Document Transcription

(From handwritten or previously typed documents such as PDFs.)

$26 / hour

Standard Turnaround

The length of a project or an individual transcript is the main factor in determining the turnaround time. For anything that is less than ten hours of transcription time, standard turnaround is three to five business days.

Rush Service, Weekend Requests

Rush = 48-hour turnaround or less. Clients providing regular monthly work receive at least four rush requests per month at no additional charge. For clients not providing work on a monthly basis, there is a rush fee of 25 percent.

Weekends. Work requested on a Friday that is needed Monday or before will be charged time and a half. This also applies to a rush project that cannot be completed during the workweek to meet a client’s deadline and the client requests weekend work in order to meet that deadline.

Payment Options

Flexible payment choices include:
