Attorneys need every advantage they can to understand transactions and circumstances for their clients. Often times this comes from the many audio and video records that are generated by the police, criminal, and legal system.  This daunting evidence is often easier scanned and understood through conversion to documents rather than listening to hour upon hour of audio and video. It seems that each court system and police department have their own special format for audio and video recordings and ways in which they provide this information to attorneys.  Type-thing Services  has experience in many of these and will convert that audio as needed for our transcriptionists. Many recordings from police belt recorders are not of the best quality.  We are able to amplify and at times filter to remove noise so the audio is more easily transcribed. Don't waste money or critical encounters by recording audio of poor quality.  We can advise you on the best way to capture audio so that you have the clearest material from which to transcribe.  See our tips about transcription for some information on this website. Also note that Type-thing Services regularly files documents directly with court systems for lawyers when providing generalized office support.

Why is Type-thing Services less expensive and a better value?
We are often asked about the cost of our transcription.  For legal transcription, your total cost is often less and our overall value greater than our competitors.  Here are a few reasons why: Verbatim accuracy is critical for legal transcription.  We understand how to transcribe legal proceedings so that they are ready for your particular need or court system. Our cross-domain experience in other fields of transcription means that we're excellent at legal transcription in these areas, particularly the medical field. We can provide 24 hour to 48 hour turn around in some situations without additional cost including scheduled regular work.  We can provide rush transcription for other urgent work if we have enough capacity (at rush rates). When we transcribe dictation from an attorney, unless you say otherwise, we convert your spoken English into written English, remove redundancies, and end up reducing the word and line count for your finished product.  This saves you money.  Many other services type exactly what you say, resulting in more cost to you and words you must delete from the finished transcription! When we apply our secretarial skills to convert your documents into final form during the transcription process, you spend less of your time or no time trying to fix faulty transcription from over-seas or less capable services. If your audio is of poor quality, we'll contact you before proceeding.  We won't create and charge for a useless transcript of "indiscernibles" that you cannot use.  If you want to proceed, we can attempt to enhance the audio or spend extra time working through the material slowly.  Such work is difficult and fatigues the transcriptionist.
