We can turnaround your transcript usually in a week, and sometimes in just
a few days.
Court proceedings are public records and you are allowed access to recordings
of your case. All you need to do is contact the clerk of the court you were heard
in and make arrangements to obtain a copy of that hearing either on tape or CD.
Send the audio to Fantastic Transcripts and
we will transcribe it and e-mail you a PDF of the transcript as quickly as possible.
We will also certify your transcript for no additional charge. Certification
describes to the court how the audio was submitted to us, on what medium, in what
condition, and what we did to transcribe the audio. We attest to the
accuracy of the transcript and any problems we had in hearing the audio.
We guarantee a high level of accuracy since we use a two-pass system where after
a transcriptionist has transcribed the audio, a transcription manager re-listens
to the audio and goes over the transcript word by word. This "second pass"
eliminates most inaudibles and clears up any misheard words and phrases.
Our rates are $34 per hour of time worked. We
do not charge by the page, line or the word. This insures that we do our best
rather than trying to crank out as many pages as we can. Also, most court reporters
do not do a second pass as we do.
We can provide an accurate estimate of how much time the transcript will take and
how much it will cost once we hear the audio. Our typical charge, based on average
audio quality is usually around $272 per hour of
audio. Actual cost depends on the audio quality of the tapes or CDs.
We can transcribe in any legal format you require. Different areas of the
country and different courts have slightly different formats. Enclose a sample
of the kind of format the court requires and we will duplicate that. Otherwise
we will transcribe in our standard legal format.
We require a valid credit card number to charge the work to at the time of
completion. We will also accept a bank cheque as advance payment with the
material. We will not release any transcripts without payment. We do not
accept purchase orders, and we do not invoice due to the trouble we have
had in collecting from people in the past.
