Your Recording is Not Viable for Transcription!

Although rare, it does happen that audio files cannot be transcribed or are just not economically viable to transcribe given that the transcription of the file would take weeks instead of hours.

 

Etranscript will first attempt to improve the audio file by applying a number audio processes to gain audio clarity but if this proves unsuccessful in improving the audio file to a level that would allow for the production of a coherent transcript, Etranscript will have no choice but to reject it.

 

It is only on rare occasions that this happens but it is an unfortunate reality, especially where inferior recording equipment has been utilised or where the recording was made in an extremely noisy environment.

 

To ensure that your recording is of a standard that allows for fluid and accurate transcription, please read the tips listed on Etranscript’s website for dictationinterviews or disciplinary hearing recordings.
