One of the largest groups of individuals who can benefit from transcription services are those involved with academia. Students, professors and other educators can all save valuable time and expended mental energy by choosing to transform voice into text, rather than typing everything out manually.

Historically, transcription services for students have never come cheap. With the tight budget of those earning a degree, and the limited time of professional educators, it can be difficult for those who need low-cost transcripts to get access to what they need.
