Airtasker’s transcription services include what any other transcription job does: receiving your files, preparing the transcript based on the content, proofreading it, and sending the transcript to you for approval.
You can request transcriptionists to help you run your business, conduct academic research, improve your medical & healthcare services, work on legal cases, or document your lectures at school. Simply provide your Tasker with the files, desired format or specifications, and wait for your transcription. If it’s your first time working with a transcriber, here’s how the process goes:
First, you’ll need to send the audio or video files to your Tasker. This step can be done via email, sharing a couple of links, or even handing over a thumb drive or hard drive.
Next, inform your Tasker about your desired format. You can simply have paragraphs indicating the speaker and what they said. You can ask for timestamps before every sentence or put the sentences in a table instead of in paragraph form. Or, you may need a file with SMTPE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) time code and frame labelling - something that will be useful if you want to create subtitles or closed captioning later on.
Do make sure that you and your Tasker are on the same page regarding the transcript format. This helps minimise any errors or miscommunications during the process. Some Taskers may transcribe as they listen or watch, while others may go through the material once before transcribing. In general, experienced transcribers have techniques that help them go through your material accurately and quickly. They’ll also have a good idea of how long it’ll take them to transcribe your files, so you’ll know when to expect their output.
When the Tasker is done creating the transcript, they’ll proofread it, checking it against the source material as well as your directives. A good transcriber will prioritise accuracy over speed.
After checking the transcription, your Tasker sends the transcript to you (virtually or in-person). You may also request that they return the source materials or delete the files from their computer if privacy is a concern.
Once you’re happy with the finished transcript, you can inform your Tasker, pay them, and thank them for a job well done.
If you’re using our transcription services to help you run your business, you can also get other kinds of assistance through Airtasker! You can use our platform to request help with accounting, document administration, data & analysis, and different types of admin work. Just like with getting a transcription service, all you need to do is fill out a task post and wait for available Taskers to send an offer. You can even indicate your location if you want someone to help you out in your physical office instead of just virtually.

I need someone to transcribe a recording of a 52 minute Youtube Webinar interview, which includes listener questions answered towards the end. The video consists of powerpoint presentation slides with audio over the top (an interviewer and an expert doctor discussing a common psychological condition). There is some medical terminology but the recording is clear. Not looking for 100% accuracy with spelling if the return file is in MS Word format.
Rachael’s work is 5 star quality and quick. Definitely recommended.

I need someone to transcribe 45minute long slabs of data for me in a short time frame. I have numerous sets of data so may need more than one completed. The data will need to be transcribed on my computer or from my audio recorder so will need to meet at either a library or at my home to complete this. Will pay one rate per transcript completed.

We require the transcription of the spoken dialog on a video recording to a Microsoft word document. There is about 76 minutes of video recoding. This is an easy task for a good fast typist that can type at the speed of the presenter. If you can type this fast it is a quick job for you as you will not have to replay the video. The video is recorded in .MTS files which can be played on standard Microsoft Media Player. There are 11 files that add up to a total of 76 minutes. The deliverables are a set of 11 Word files which transcribe each video. The files can be supplied on a USA thumb drive.
Melissa was fantastic, very responsive and did a great job. I am sure we will ask her to more work in the future.
