business transcription pricing

Generally, Transcription Outsourcing, LLC clients pay business transcription pricing on transcription rates per minute between $1.50 and $5.00 depending on the number of speakers, audio quality and turnaround time required.  Same day services are also available, but the transcription pricing for those requests must be made over the phone so we are all on the same page and can get your transcript started as soon as possible.

Transcription costs varies from client to client due to each user’s unique needs and situation.

Volume or number of minutes, turnaround time, audio quality, and the number of speakers are just a few of the variables we take into consideration.
