Please note on some occasions a higher rate may be applied to poor quality recordings.  For example:

♦ Interviews carried out in restaurants with background noise
♦ Telephone recordings with interference or a poor quality connection
♦ Particularly strong accents

As the above examples can cause the transcription process to take significantly longer, the additional rate can range from £0.20 to £0.45 per recorded minute.  We will of course always advise our clients if we anticipate a higher rate being required before starting a transcript.

To avoid this issue, and the quality of a transcript being negatively affected by the quality of the recording, we recommend reading our tips for producing a good quality recording for ideas on recording your interviews or focus groups.
