It is always beneficial to use transcriptionists with English as their native language. Stellar Transcripts believes in keeping jobs in the U.S. We only use highly educated transcriptionists with years of experience.
The owner/operator does the bulk of the proofreading and participates in much of the transcription herself, so you will always receive a uniform product. You will always interact with someone immediately familiar with your work, not an administrative intermediary.
Many transcription services claim to offer a flat rate but then tack on additional fees for such variables as accents, audio quality, number of speakers, timecoding or turnaround requests. With us, the only factor affecting our flat per-audio-minute rate is the number of voices in your audio, and you will know that rate up front.
There has been a move in recent years to utilize speech-to-text software to perform automated transcription at a lower cost. However, software cannot always accurately capture the nuances and complexities of human speech, particularly when audio quality isn't ideal or there are multiple speakers. Cleaning up inadequate transcripts can ultimately cost your organization time and money.
