Some Additional Information


Which digital file format should I use for my recording?

The most appropriate file format to use for the recording of dictation is very different to the file format that is used to record a disciplinary hearing. The best possible audio quality is required and the choice of file format is the primary consideration to achieve this outcome.

What languages do you transcribe?

I am a first-language English speaker and transcribe only English language recordings. Audio files that contain a little Afrikaans can also be transcribed but not academic-level Afrikaans or full Afrikaans-language recordings.

How will I get the recordings to you?

A number of methods are available to send your digital audio files to Etranscript. These include email; an encrypted file transfer such as Dropbox; or an FTP facility. The level of security required and the size of the file will determine the best choice for your files. Dropbox allows for files up to 20Gb is size to be transferred. Audio and video files are usually much smaller than this.
