Qualtranscribe offers two main transcription formats.

Clean Read

Omits unnecessary utterances to allow the transcript flow better whiles preserving meaning and context.

CLEAN READ: Everything captured, excluding the "ums" and "uhs"

​Clean verbatim transcription is our most commonly ordered transcription format and often the default style for professional services. Instead of capturing every sound spoken, clean-read captures only what people actually intended to say. We do not paraphrase. We preserve the meaning and context of every single sentence in an interview recording.

  • ​The entire content of the recording is captured from the beginning to the end. 

  • ​Word crutches (um’s, ah’s, stutters, repetitions, etc.) are not captured. 

  • ​Voices, media playback, etc. that are part of the background are not captured. 

Verbatim

Captures and includes every utterance within the audio like "uh" and "um." Also, sighs, stutters and filler words.

VERBATIM: Everything captured, including the "ums" and "uhs"

​With full verbatim transcription, your audio is transcribed word-for-word; sighs and stutters, filler words, and sound and non-verbal communication is all captured. Full verbatim transcripts are the longest and most frustrating to read since the speech pattern does not flow well.​​

  • The full content of the recording is captured from the beginning to the end. 

  • All speech is captured exactly as spoken, including um’s, ah’s, mis-started sentences, repetitions, etc.

  • Voices, media playback, etc. that are part of the background are captured.

First transcripts from the “reverse audiobook” I’ve been producing with @adamteterus just came in. So, so good. @Qualtranscribe did amazing work on this transcription. Kinda wonky file workflow, but 💯💯💯will be using again.

Working with this team has been great. I conducted interviews with West African immigrants in the U.S. for my dissertation. Great accuracy reliability and easy to deal with! I have been recommending. Qualtranscribe to fellow researchers.

The team produced very good quality transcripts for me in both English and Swahili, based on interview and focus group material, as well as recordings for a podcast. They were a dream to work with - very responsive and accommodating.

Additionally, it provides bidirectional encryption of communications between client and server, protecting against eavesdropping and tampering with and/or forging the contents of the communication. This provides a reasonable guarantee that one is communicating with precisely the web site that one intended to communicate with, as well as ensures that the contents of communication between the user and site cannot be read or forged by a third party

  • What's a full verbatim transcript?
    In a full verbatim transcription, interview is transcribed word for word, and sound for sound., Every single utterance is included; ums, uhs, mm-hmms, false start, stutters and all repeated words. Non-word utterances such as um, uh-huh Sound of emotion or body sounds: [laughs], [crying], [makes sound], [coughs], [clears throat], even pauses and silences are noted. No word is added even to improve grammar. Don't transcribe languages other than English. Each of these cases is described in another section. Usually this would be for court documents or transcripts that may be submitted to a court for litigation purposes. Some students may also want every utterance transcribed for analyzing purposes, while others prefer to have an intelligent version.
