Q How do I send Pacific Transcription my audio recordings?
We provide clients with an account on Pacific Transcription's secure website. When you have an audio file ready for transcription, you simply upload the file to your account and any instructions can be added at the same time.
Q What if I have a tape, CD, video or DVD?
Pacific Transcription can transcribe your tapes, CDs, videos or DVDs. Please contact us to discuss your needs further, and to ensure safe and secure delivery of your confidential items. We advise using a registered and/or tracked delivery service, such as Australia Post Express Post or trusted courier service.
While we can transcribe from your tapes, CDs, videos or DVDS, the audio must be re-recorded and/or extracted first. This services does attract an additional cost.
Q How do I ensure my dictations are clear and easy to transcribe?
