Audio transcription itself, digital or other, is the art of turning the spoken word into the written word. Sometimes it is called digital dictation or audio typing, but these terms generally refer to ‘office correspondence’.
Digital audio transcription is managed by the experts at Alphabet Transcription Services. Some audio transcription providers purely transcribe what they hear, or what they think they hear.
Others use automatic software to interpret close language matches. We go much further. At Alphabet Transcription Services, we don’t offer dictation or software solutions.
We provide full service digital audio transcriptions to achieve pristine copy for use by companies across the UK.

By full audio transcription service, we mean that we do everything required to deliver the final, accurate transcript to save you an incredible amount of time. We will research the subject first to familiarise ourselves with the content and terminology, and then allocate our work to specialist proof readers to check for accuracy.
We also include verbatim legal transcription for clients who require all utterances documented for legal purposes and, for clients who require transcripts for the hearing impaired, we include references to accents, voice pitch, emotion and ambient sounds.
Audio transcription has come a long way since we started in 1995. Back then we worked with cassette tapes despatched in the post. These days, the majority of recordings we receive are digital, for example, MP3, WAV, Windows Media, etc., and our clients appreciate the security and convenience of being able to upload their sound files via our secure online portal.
Digital audio files come in many formats – far too many to list here – and we accept most (the higher the sound quality, the better).
Put simply, we listen to your digital audio files and transcribe them accurately, so that you have a precise record, in writing, of what you have recorded.

Our UK transcription professionals are based in the United Kingdom and can understand the accents that are common throughout the country. We have no problem understanding different accents and dialects.
Because of this, our transcriptions are extremely accurate. Native English speakers understand all the different nuances of the language and can deliver great results.

“Chilli Consultancy have been supported by Alphabet’s transcription services since 2016. The efficiency of service is second-to-none. In particular, the system for uploading the audio files securely is smooth and efficient. The turnaround time for transcription has always been quicker than the agreed timeframe. The transcriptions are of very high quality, despite working from audio recordings of people with a wide range of accents from across the world. Chilli Consultancy will continue to use Alphabet for many years to come because of this high level of service.”

All in all we are very happy with Alphabet and would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone in this line of work.”
“Transcribing interviews is a time consuming art, which needs a subtle blend of linguistic and technical skills. Alphabet provided a combination of these abilities. They provided a fast turnaround, great quality documents, and a friendly and personal experience. It was like having my own in-house transcribing team.

I would recommend Alphabet to any persons or organisations that require a professional and friendly transcribing service.”
