Frequently Asked Questions

Will my transcripts be kept confidential?
Absolutely! We take confidentiality very seriously and will never share your information. If you need to have a non-disclosure agreement signed, please upload a copy along with your audio files or send a copy over to us at: [email protected]
Openings will be posted when available. U.S. citizens/residents only. Please visit the Jobs page: https://www.thoroughscript.com/jobs/
We strive to provide high-quality, professional documents. While we do not offer refunds once a transcription job has been completed, we do offer a 14-day quality guarantee on clear audio. If you are not completely satisfied with our quality of work, we will make any corrections or changes free within 14 days after you receive your transcript. Please keep in mind that the secret to a great transcript is as simple as good audio. Even the best transcriptionist will struggle to produce a great transcript when working with poor-quality audio. In the case we receive an audio file of extremely poor quality where there is concern regarding the ability to provide you with an accurate transcript, we will notify you via email before we begin the project, and you may opt to move forward or request a complete refund.
Place your order for just the minutes to be transcribed and not the entire audio duration. You can enter start and stop times in the Order Notes during checkout. If you have multiple files, you may upload a document specifying each audio file’s start and stop times.
A file request link will be provided after checkout. Simply select or drag and drop your audio or video files. Enter your first and last name and click Upload. That’s it. Larger files may take longer to upload and also depend on your connection speed. Any files stored in a non-digital format must be transferred to your computer for uploading. We do not accept non-digital formats via mail.
How to upload audio files for transcribing
