Transcription of voice files falls into two categories:

  • Category 1 - these are single-voice recordings consisting of dictation for standard letters, invoices, documents, etc.
  • Category 2 - these are multi-voice recordings consisting of recorded meetings, interviews, conference calls, etc.

       LegalType Services' charge out rates are calculated as follows:

      • For category 1 transcriptions, you will be charged at $42.00+GST per hour. As a guide, transcription of 1 minute of recording equates to approximately 3 minutes of processing time.
      • For category 2 transcriptions you will be charged at the rate of $42.00+GST per hour.  As a guide, to transcribe these types of recordings is usually 5 x recording length.  These voice files tend to be much more involved due to factors like identifying speakers and sound quality.
