It’s never too late to develop new good habits. Especially ones that will skyrocket your efficiency by saving you valuable time. The age of automation is already upon us and it’s high time we all make the most of it. Automated transcription services are fast becoming a go-to tool in the workplace and to help you get in on the action, here’s our “How To” guide for getting started with TranscribeMe: 


1. Do a Quick Needs Assessment

It’s a good start to make a quick list of all your responsibilities with which transcription can help you. Any speech that can be recorded for a quick and easy conversion to text is what you’re looking for with this task. Team meeting minutes, academic lecturers and conference speakers, legal depositions, or even medical interviews are all valid examples. 


Once you have this list, estimating how long you typically spend typing them up manually will give you an idea on how much time you’ll be able to save. The benefits of transcription will be more than evident at this stage.


2. Understand Your Priorities

Before choosing which of our services to contract, it’s important to understand your own parameters. Are you working with a tight budget and more flexibility on time? Or do you have the luxury of a bigger budget burdened with strict deadlines? We offer a range of transcription services from First Draft to Full Verbatim to cater for the full spectrum of enterprise needs. Our pricing calculator can help you crunch the numbers as per your requirements.


3. Get to Grips With The Basics

One thing you can be sure to count on with TranscribeMe is the secure and confidential handling of your data. We pride ourselves on being fully HIPAA compliant for medical transcription, on top of the strict security measures we have in place that serve all other industries. With this matter addressed, all you have to do focus on is making sure you capture a clear recording, regardless of how many speakers are involved.


4. Sign Up in 1, 2, 3

All you need to create your account on our online portal is your name, email address, and a secure password of your choice. It’s free to sign up and can also be done directly via Gmail or Facebook sign-in. Upon successful registration, you’ll immediately be able to upload your audio or video files for transcription noting any specific requests and select the type of service. Your digital transcripts will come back to you in the requested format via email, ready to download on any device.


5. Access Anytime, Anywhere

Our online portal means you’ll conveniently be able to submit your transcription orders from anywhere at anytime. What’s more, the TranscribeMe App makes this step even easier if your mobile phone is your main recording device and you’re always on the go. It is free to download and available for both iOS and Android. 


We also have large corporate teams covered with an easily integrable API to provide direct access to our online portal. You can further streamline your workflow by linking to a range of widely-used compatible software and setting up monthly billing to you or your customers.


6. Tap into a World of Services

TranscribeMe’s best-in-class services don’t stop at transcription. Aside from the multi-industry expertise we hold, our offer extends to quality transcript translations in a number of languages. We owe the great sensitivity to nuance in speech and dialect to our international community of highly-trained transcriptionists that work to perfect our automatic speech recognition models.
