At least once in your life you could have used a great transcriptionist! Did you find it at the grocery store?

I get asked all the time, “who needs transcription services besides doctors and lawyers?’

I am always amazed at the amount of “wow, I hadn’t thought of that” responses that I get when I tell them.

At one time or another everyone needs transcription so they can have an electronic copy to edit, share and save.  Having a transcribed version of their audio or hard copy material allows them to do all of that, plus having someone else handle that part of their project, allows them time to complete the other pressing aspects of their project or life.

I am equally amazed at how many send their work to a medical transcription company when their project is not medically related. 

CLK Transcription is a TRANSCRIPTION company, specializing in medical and non-medical projects of all topics and specialties.   You wouldn’t take your transmission concern to a quick lube joint, or your horse to a pediatrician, or shop for a contractor at a grocery store would you?

So when you think you don’t need a transcription company, or feel you can do it yourself – I just have to ask “how much is your time worth?  How long does it take you to transcribe those notes, memos, audios – and what else could you be doing?”

CLK Transcription can help you find the time you need and help you meet your deadline and get on with other personal concerns.  Whether it is recorded audio or hard copy (scrap paper, receipts, hand written or old print), we can develop it into an easy to read and edit document for you.

Our rates are competitive, reasonable, and below the national norm – and we work with you on your budgetary concerns.  We offer an easy to read invoice as well as yearly invoice recaps for your tax filing.  Most importantly, every client receives a confidentiality agreement signed by us, and if you have other documentation needed, we have no problem supplying it for your records.  We never off-shore our projects and we do not use speech recognition – have you seen the errors made by use of this program?

Throughout the year we offer savings programs so that tax season and the holidays don’t take a bite of your work, or vice versa, and we offer payment plans for those who may need it.  We truly understand how your project is important to you even when the economy can slow us all down.

Contact us today to find out how we can save you time and money.

The holidays are coming, the holidays are coming! Do you need more time?

Just when you think you have it all figured out and get into that groove of starting and completing your projects, the holidays sneak up on you, not to mention the end of the year, preparing for taxes and possibly new marketing of your own.  There just isn’t enough hours in the day, days in the week, or weeks in the month to finish everything you need to accomplish.

 

Whether you are a journalist, author, or ghost writer with interviews, student or parent with educational projects or IEPs, business professional with round tables and meetings, speaker or presenter with webinars, conferences, or audio blogs – this is the time of year where time to complete all of your projects AND meet family and personal demands is so difficult to find.

 

You clients, editors, and educators want and demand more and more of your attention, because they too know the end of the year is coming and there is so much to do to prepare for that and the coming holidays.  And your family – they just want you and your attention so you can celebrate with them.

 

Some may be able to juggle their projects and personal demands, but why juggle?

 

The team at CLK Transcription works through the holiday and allows you the gift of time to do those things that in the minds of your family and friends can be more important than your project .  We also offer gift certificates for that important person in your life that may be hesitant to let go of some of the workload.

 

Yes we do voice mail, so you can be on the road and still not miss that important call. It can be transcribed and sent right to your cell phone.

 

Yes, we do medical transcription of office notes, Op reports, narratives, etcetera – so even if you have in-house staff to transcribe, when your staff is on vacation, we can cover for them.

 

Yes, we convert DVDs, CDs, Cassettes, to MP3s.  Yes, we convert hard copy media to electronic Word documents.

 

And for those that want to save a few trees, yes we can develop electronic signatures for you so you do not need to print every document for a signature.

We offer a confidentiality agreement to all of our clients, and have handled project files from 12 seconds to 80 hours. We never use speech recognition.

 

So, if  you need to find some time to take on additional work, spend with family, or celebrate a holiday and get your project done all at the same time – and could use some money saved in the process – check out CLK Transcription.  We would love to assist you with your transcription needs.

 

We have a team of transcriptionists that can handle your audio transcription on a wide range of topics, utilizing our knowledge base and research abilities to offer you quality transcripts at a cost that is well below the national average.

 

We are owned and operated here in the US.  ESLs are welcome however we do not off shore our work, ever.   Many of our team are Veterans or family members of Active Duty Servicemen and women. We support our troops.

 

We want to save you time and money and allow you to enjoy the season and prepare for the New Year.  So come on, check us out and find out why we come so highly recommended.

 

We are an e-mail away from assisting you with your next project.

From Transcriptionists, to Transcriptionists, about CLK and the general task at hand…

From Patricia J.
We partner with the authors and journalists to provide them with a written transcript.  We work to make them look good and to make the transition from verbal communication to written word as seamless and clean as possible.
We are language specialists who enjoy the opportunity to learn about new fields, other people’s life experience, et cetera.  We enjoy the opportunity to research things we don’t know so that we can return a polished, professional product to the clients.  We’re committed to being available to get the job done.  It’s important to follow-through and to be a good communicator with the “Home office”  to make sure that what we do represents them well and helps to establish client loyalty.      The more work the home office gets, the more work we get.  It’s a team effort, and we all have a part to play.

We may be anonymous to the home office clients, but we’re essential in getting the work out in a timely, professional, and polished way.

From Ruth C.

Patience, Determination, Willingness, Self-discipline, Curiosity, Teachable, Cooperative

These words come to mind immediately when I think about the work I do.

I’m supposed to be retired.  How do you retire when you’ve only known work your entire life?  Working with CLK gives me the opportunity to work even though my body tells me “not any more.”

It isn’t easy work.  It is worthwhile work.  It is on-going education paying while you learn. 

Research is an important part of our job.  If you don’t have a great curiosity about anything and everything…well, you probably want to choose another profession.

If you are flighty and can’t sit still, if you are easily bored…find some other way to earn a living.

If you don’t want to accept constructive criticism…this isn’t the job for you.

If you like to play alone…well, we are a team at CLK.

I have typed files that I found to be objectionable material.  Because I had committed to the files I completed them.  A discussion with CarolLee assured me that any subject that wore on my conscience should have been brought to her attention immediately and the file would have been reassigned.  CLK is all about fairness to the IT, not just the client.

CarolLee and CLK have seen me through some physically and emotionally critical times in the last three years.  When I’ve told her of a situation her response was, “Keep me posted.”  Just be honest and forthcoming with CarolLee and CLK and she will work with you (and pray for you) all the way.

If you’ve never owned a headset or operated a foot pedal, well, just be honestly willing to learn and CarolLee will guide you every keystroke of the way.

Although few of us have met face to face, at CLK we are more than a team.  We are a family …sometimes dysfunctional but a family none-the-less.  When one of us decides to try our talents in business for ourselves, that sibling is encouraged and wished great success by all.

So, if you are willing to work hard, determined to learn, curious about all the things you didn’t know were out there in the world, crave the joy of being responsible or your own welfare and not worrying about going to work and finding the doors chained, need flexibility to accommodate life’s demands, well, please join us at CLK.

Dear Interviewer. Part two in a transcriptionist’s quest to better serve you…

I believe a transcriptionist is a journalist’s/writer’s/physician’s/educator’s/student’s best friend.  We are able to transcribe your audio and provide you with quality documents, and in doing so, save you time and money.

Thee are some tips that you can keep in mind, as someone who has the need for audio transcription, that can make it easier for the transcriptionist to provide better service to you.  Some have been mentioned here in a previous post – http://wp.me/pLEiA-6B

Here are a few more that some of my team would like to share.  These tips, I am sure, are echoed throughout the transcription community.

There are a lot of times that researching things like, spelling of people’s names, cities, special drugs like cancer research drugs, technology terms, sometimes even acronyms can be tricky.

What is interesting is some people will go out of their way to say a word, and then spell a word like Apple Sauce, but names like Anna Koolakokaloma are just said, usually real fast and not spelt – except graciously they will say Anna with two ‘n’s.

If the audio is not the best, or the person speaking is difficult to understand due to background noise, cell phones being used, ESL, etcetera, it can take even longer for the research to be done and we all know “time is money,” both to the client and the transcriptionist.

So, please help us produce the most efficient, accurate, and professional report for you by providing as much information as you can regarding the interview or project being transcribed, even a website that we can reference for information can sometimes be helpful.

We pride ourselves with our research skills, but there are times that having that information beforehand can save us both time and money.

If there is more than one speaker being interviewed, having them say their names when they start talking is so helpful.  You’d be amazed at how most people sound alike on a recording.

Chances are if the person you are interviewing is sitting across the room and you are sitting with the recorder it will be impossible to hear them.  Move it by them or have them speak louder.  Consider sitting still if you are using speakerphone with the recorder sitting next to it.  When using speakerphone, noise on your end cuts out what the person being interviewed is saying.  So instead of hearing them, I’m hearing the papers being moved, you walking around, etcetera.  I even had one where the interviewer was taking notes with paper and pencil and the writing was louder than the person.

Naming your audio file is one thing that can help you in the future.  I have had clients send files that are automatically named by the device they are using to record and save the audio.  When they send the file to me, I will usually put the interviewee’s name in the file name going back to the client, but if unknown, we simply use the audio file name as a report name – so the client can match up report to audio file.  Occasionally a client will ask me ‘do you have the interview I did for John Smith?’  Unfortunately they do not supply names of interviewees and do not name the file in such a way that it is easily searchable.  (Probably why they are asking me if I have it).  So, it is important to name your file with something that is pertinent to you – or to give me the information so I can name the report accordingly.  This absolutely saves the client time when they are searching for their audio and their work in the future.

Of course there are times that difficult files or the arena of the interview cannot be controlled.  CLK Transcription prides themselves in being able to handle even the most difficult of files.   There is no extra charge for difficult files, for multiple speakers.  We consider them just regular routine work for us because we deal with so many great journalists.  

We understand that the profession you are in is demanding, and we work hard to meet your needs.  Contact us today to find out how we might save you time and money – even with the most difficult of audios.  www.clktranscription.com

In my opinion, here is what makes a good businessperson…

In the past several weeks I have been met with some professionals (and I use that term because they use it only) that I was giving my business to.  I was their client, their customer, their money in the drawer during this sucky economy.

 

The first was a professional who did construction, maintenance – you know the ‘all around handy guy.’  When asked to do emergency work that was being paid for by me, it ended up being a four-day job with no work and no communication.  I moved on.

 

Then it was the mechanic who floored me in a number of ways.  First I asked if the job could be done in two days, because well, I needed my vehicle back in two days, and I told him politely that if he couldn’t, I would have to find someone else to do the job, if possible, in two days.  (just a tire rod replacement and inspection, which I know only takes a couple of hours).

He was offended and told me I should show him more respect. What?  Am I not paying him?

Oh and the second way he floored me.  He called me to tell me it was done, and then said I am going to lunch at 12 so be here before then or wait for it.  Now I was on my way, about 20 minutes out, and it was 11:30.  You would think rather than putting me out, and making me wait to PAY him, he would hang around for a few minutes IF I were late – he does own the shop after all.

After paying, I was then harangued about how I should show respect for the good work that is done and not threaten to take the work elsewhere.  Well, I am a customer.  I pay for what I want.  If you can’t give it to me, then I will find someone who can.  That is the price you pay for calling yourself a professional.

I should respect him even though he can talk to me, a paying customer that way?  I think not.

 

Here’s how I treat my clients.  When they need something I either deliver it, or they go elsewhere.  I certainly wouldn’t tell them take it or leave it.  I certainly wouldn’t go to lunch and not accept a payment, making them wait to pay.  i wouldn’t put their work on the back burner because they had a rush job.  I work harder to show them I can do it, and do it the way they want.

 

Has this become a primitive way of thinking?

 

 

In this economy, I think the best way to maintain clients – not just get them and move on – is to treat them like paying clients.  because well, they are.  If I can’t give them what they want, why waste their time.  By being honest, they may just come back next time to me when I can give them exactly what they want.

They may just spread the word about how wonderful their interaction is.  They may even refer others tome. And I have found they do.

 

Now, I firmly believe that when you get crappy service, you should mention it.  And many will repeat the information about the crappy service over and over and over again.

But let’s not forget the good service.  As a client myself, when I like something, I share and share often.  I refer and promote and recommend all the time.  That is the respect they EARNED when I do business as a paying customer.  Notice, I haven’t shared the name of the crappy customer service companies.  I won’t give them weight!

 

That is the respect I try to earn as a business owner/operator for my clients.

 

So, if it is primitive thinking that gets me here, then so be it.  It works for me.

Need a US medical transcription company? CLK Transcription does that too!

Although I have a deep and profound love for the journalist, ghost writer, and others who need non-medical transcription, my roots are in the medical field beginning many years ago with insurance verification, medical records, home health care administrator, and then on to medical transcription with another company, I do enjoy the medical client as well.

I treat each and every one of my clients as my only client.  Each one has their preferences, demands, and expectations.  I could never cookie-cutter their work.  Especially the medical reports.

I know that when a client needs me, they need me, and I give them everything I can.  I work with their deadlines, their requests, and their sometime outrageous expectations with a smile and always try to meet even their hardest challenge.  I haven’t had problems yet, because I have a great team behind me and we love the challenge.

Medical transcription is even more difficult – with accuracy and format being most important for strict legal and continuing health care concerns.  I worked with JCAHO and state agencies during audit periods and know that reports should always follow format throughout the practice of a physician.  When there is a difference, the agencies auditing sometimes feel those reports could have been “amended” to pass an audit, rather than original reports. Many other transcription companies think they know best and make changes because it works for them, without consideration for the client’s demands

The TAT for medical reports is extremely tight and must be met.  There are times that a patient’s care is on hold for the return of reports. And if there is any question of the information within the report, this too can hold up patient care. There is no guessing with medical reports.  The difference between b.i.d. and t.i.d. is costly and could mean a life.

A physician is under extreme pressure to ensure that all information is documented accurately and timely.  Many hospitals even require physicians to dictate every change in medication and other items that used to be documented in the chart, but not in report format.  This requirement is to lower the risk for malpractice claims. I think it is wonderful because it means better continuity of care for me – the patient.  It comes with a price though.

These demands placed on physicians has been a cause for increase in fees.  The physicians have had to hire in-house staff to handle the transcription, and in those cases, must offer all the benefits that employment calls for.  If they choose to send their work outside of the office, many have chosen to send it offshore to save money.  This is costly to the patient and the doctor.  Costly o the patient because their information – everything from name and address to family history, social history, and all medical information is now available in a country that does not have to answer to our regulations.  Costly to the physician because when you hire someone who has English as a second language, you will ultimately get a report with the same second-rate English causing second-rate information in reports that must be proofed and edited by another staff member – or the physician himself – which costs even more time and money.

Because I strive to keep the US transcription of all of our US-based clients within our borders I have kept my rates lower, hopefully to save the client, but also to allow the work to be transcribed within the US, safely and at the same time by US transcriptionists who have paid thousands to educate themselves in this field and thousands more to maintain their training and education – and understand the English language .

So, yes, I do profoundly enjoy the non-medical portion of my business, but the medical side is also my heart and a large part of the enjoyment of what I do.

CLK Transcription offers physician and other medical professionals an alternative to in-house staff and the cost of that employment and benefits, as well as allowing the physician the opportunity to help keep work here in the US and our personal information safe all at the same time, without worry about someone understanding the English language, saving even more money on editing and proofing.  And we offer a quick TAT saving time in a person’s care.

CarolLee and the ICs that are utilized by CLK  have had extensive training and education in all specialties of the medical profession, either through past/present full-time professions (nursing, PA, etc) or through extensive training through various educational programs…and of course, our own personal/family medical history, which at times has been the best form of continuing education of all.  We also offer every client a confidentiality agreement and live and breathe by it.

So, whether it is a GP, oncologist, dermatologist, radiologist, podiatrist, physical therapist, dietitian, endocrinologist, or other specialty of medicine – we can do that!

There is no contract, but we like to think that after you try us, you will come back to us and find out just how much we can save you – time and money.

We offer a line or page rate that is below the national average but our quality is priceless.

Dear interviewer, you are a great interviewer but…a Transcriptionist’s point of view.

One of CLK Transcriptions independent contractors asked why we are never interviewed for a story.  Then she realized we are too busy transcribing your audio to stop.  She did however have some thoughts and suggestions on how to make transcribing your audio of other interviews a bit more transcription friendly – whether we transcribe your audio, someone else transcribes your audio – or even YOU transcribe your own audio.

 

Many of these I have mentioned before, but I had to share her comments as a worker bee trying to save you time and money.

 

 

Dear Interviewer:

 

Please check your equipment.  Growls, howls, static, etc, in your audio make accurate transcription difficult, but knowing ahead of time helps me to prepare.

Also, when interviewing outside, in a crowd, or say with an ambulance passing by during the discussion, understand that unless you repeat some of the conversation when that pesky ambulance drove by, there may be some blanks.  Try to consider better placement of your microphone in those situations.  The best place for the microphone is not next to the plate and glass, or even the paperwork that you will be moving around.  We hear the noise first.  It isn’t that we can’t do it; we love the challenge, but proper placement leads to better end product.  We understand it isn’t always possible, so again, just give us a heads up that you are aware the audio is difficult and that helps us prepare as well.  Also, you may want to be sure that you have the interview and not just your side of the conversation on the audio.  Listening to the audio yourself also helps when you think you are sending a recording thinking it is one thing and well, it isn’t.

 

Those words you spoke when yawning or belching, or coughing and sneezing, really are hard to decipher.  Could you repeat that please?  It is impolite to stop in the middle and speak to someone else – we do not know if you want that transcribed, unless you are ordering dinner.  And please, as busy as we know you are, please leave the chewing and bathroom breaks out of the audio.

Please allow your interviewees to finish a sentence without interruption whenever possible.  I can’t decipher his/her responses accurately if I can’t hear them fully – and we hate having a blank in your report.  And I always wonder whose part of the conversation is the most important and should be in the transcript when I can’t clearly hear both speakers and you ask me to clean it up for you.

Please call your interviewees by name early in the conversation so his/her name can be inserted during the article rather than “interviewee”.  A find-replace only takes a few seconds but keep in mind I’m paid by the audio minute and seconds matter.

When an interviewee is using a “unique” technical or medical term, please repeat the word – or send it with the audio in your e-mail.  Hearing it correctly will help me search for the correct spelling.  This would be especially helpful when you are interviewing someone whose accent is other than American English.  When possible, especially with those pesky obscure names, spelling it helps.  Spelling HABITAT doesn’t; we know how to spell that, but when you have a name like Nahuat, spelling helps.

Also, when possible, giving us a bit of a background – speakers names, websites, etc – on the topic of the discussion.  This helps us research words and phrases so you don’t have to.   We do not all watch every TV show produced, so even the title of the show so we can research names and characters, is a help.

Also verifying the length of the audio you are sending so we know there was no problem with the download.

Let us know if you need the file immediately.  It may mean a stat fee, but this is not always the case.  It helps us help you when we know your projected TAT for the audio.  Whether its needed later int he day or the next morning, even if a week away.  (Yes, we have clients who actually give us a week to turn around a document, but we haven’t ever taken advantage of that yet.)

Recording and transcribing chitchat is a waste of your money.  I understand the importance of the “break the ice” conversation at the beginning of an interview.  If this conversation is not necessary to the article you are writing, please let us know when to start transcribing and we will skip it and we both save time and money.

Take into consideration that to transcribe your audio is at minimum three times the length of the audio – total transcription time and proofing.  And that is with a clear audio.  If you have a stat/priority that is four hours long, don’t expect it by evening if sent at 1 p.m., especially if poor quality.  We take extra time with difficult audio to ensure we got everything possible.  Again, we sometimes work miracles, so it doesn’t hurt to ask, but the more time you allow us, the more relaxed we can be knowing we are giving you our best and not a rush job where something always suffers.  And sending that stat at midnight for return the next morning, even if only 10 minutes long, really is a difficult task for us.  We occasionally sleep too, but if you give us a heads up early in the day to expect it, guess what – we can do that!

 

Lastly, if you send a file and we do not confirm receipt within 15 minutes, there may have been a glitch in the e-mail.  We always confirm receipt – usually within 15 minutes.  If you don’t hear from us, verify receipt.  And when you send us a file today of less than an hour, if you do not have it by tomorrow – check with us.  We rarely have a file of an hour or less for more than 24 hours.  These things really bother us because we do not like you to think we aren’t doing our best to assist you meet your deadline.

 

Thank you for listening.  We just want to be able to get you your reports as quickly as possible with the quality you demand.  These little tips may help.

Thinking about transcribing your own audio/video? Why not let us handle that for you and save you time and money?

When journalists, authors, doctors, etcetera, begin to think about having their audio/video transcribed, the first thought is probably cost. Many attempt to do the work themselves, or hire in-house staff to do the transcription.

When hiring an in-house staff, you have to consider hourly pay, benefits, and keeping that person busy with “busy work” when no transcription work is available for them to handle. They have to consider days off, sick time, vacation…not just the cost, but who handles the work when their “transcriptionist” is not around?

If you are handling the transcription task yourself, I have to ask you – how much is your time worth? How long does it take you to transcribe the audio? What does it breakdown to in terms of hourly wage? Are there other things you would rather be doing? Interviewing another person? Organizing the data for your article/book? Managing other tasks? Taking time out to do personal chores?

For those who hold weekly, monthly or annual meetings or conferences – having those events recorded and then transcribed allows you to share this information with more than those who have been able to attend the function personally. Sure you can share the video, but what happens when other’s busy schedule precludes them from sitting and watching a video?

Having the transcript allows them the freedom to move around and tackle their day, and you the knowledge that they have a true concept of what occurred and something they, and yourself, can refer back to when necessary. How many times have you wished you could replay a meeting for what was said?

For the educator, or those seeking higher levels of education – your class audio can be transcribed for sharing as well. Those interviews and other audio developed for your paper can be transcribed for reference.

CLK Transcription offers a discount for educators and students alike. We feel education is THE most important thing a person can have, and love the opportunity to help you reach your goals. We have been proud to handle transcripts for professors or students of UCLA, Bloomsburg University, Wilkes Barre University, King’s College, Illinois State University, Minnesota State University, Wisconsin State University, Harvard University, and others.

Having a transcription service handle your audio/video projects allows the freedom to do what it is you must do to meet your TAT. Freedom to continue your other work to bring the project together. Freedom to share information in a manner that fits everyone’s schedule. Freedom to develop the best end-result you possibly can, without the stress, time or money you may have been spending in the past.

A transcription service can be the cost-effective and cost-efficient tool that you are looking for to allow you more time to get your project done, to share important information, or just to get your personal chores tended to.

When using CLK Transcription Service, you only pay for the audio/video assigned. No sick time, no vacation time, and certainly no overtime or benefits. We have individuals who have special skills to research terms and information, skilled in listening and hearing the most difficult audio and transforming it into a quality transcript.

CLK Transcription can handle multiple audio, in varying lengths, and can meet or surpass your expected TAT in most, if not all, cases. We have transcriptionists all across the United States and we never offshore, EVER. We also never use speech recognition. We feel the nuances of your audio deserve the extra care given by a human ear and human hands.

CLK Transcription has been recommended by the best journalists and by many of the Universities in the country, as well as large publishing companies and other professional corporations – from the medical research industry to the business and finance industry. We also have handled many motivational and teaching seminars by many of the world’s most well-known speakers and coaches. We have handled files as large as multi-day conferences and seminars to the few minute audio of a journalist, on a wide variety of topics. Yes, we even do voice mail transcription giving you the freedom to step away and know your important calls will never be missed again. We have clients all over the world, and have transcribed many, many ESL audio as well. We love what we do and take the time to do it right – for YOU!

Voice Recognition – Not For Me. I never speak in fluid sentences all the time without changing thoughts or ideas.

How often do you stutter, forget the question, start to say something and then find a better way to say it?

 

Using voice recognition may seem easy for many, but if you want clean, clear reports there is nothing that can replace a human ear listening to your words and knowing what you mean/meant to say.

 

Voice recognition may seem easy for many, but you have to train the software to your voice.  Are you saying PRN or pee are in?  Is your audio always clear enough to know the difference?

 

Do you ever speak slowly and clearly all the time for a person to understand all the time?  Imagine a program listening.

 

How many times have you heard ‘can you repeat that’?  How many times have you said ‘okay, okay, right, right, right” during an interview and if transcribed every time would make you appear as a valley girl?

 

Do you want your ers, uhms, and the multiple yeah, yeah, yeahs transcribed in your report?

 

Do you want to have to reread the report multiple times when finished so you can be sure to catch those potentially unprofessional comments from being left in your report?

 

When someone asks me how I feel about voice recognition I tell them this – I speak fast.  I change my thoughts mid sentence, I may even forget where I was for a moment.  I make strange noises when I get lost in thought.  I don’t say every word perfectly.

 

Your time and money is too precious to have a program type your words, just to spend more time correcting and perfecting them.

 

Let CLK Transcription show you how a human ear can be used to listen to your audio and human hands to type your report, cleaning it up where you decide it should be. Your time can be spent on that next interview while the transcription is done in a professional manner, fast and accurately.

 

So when thinking about voice recognition – why not try using a human to recognize your voice to give you the best quality transcripts possible for a cost you can afford?
