Our First Draft service passes through the initial transcription step, where a team of transcriptionists work on your content in-tandem. This can be returned to you as raw text. We also offer timestamps and speaker IDs with First Draft without the additional layer of editing for punctuation and consistency throughout the transcript, that comes with our Standard service.
First Draft transcripts remove “umms”, “ahhs”, “likes”, “you knows”, and other filler words in addition to stuttering. We do not correct grammatically incorrect language – we transcribe the audio exactly as it is.
First Draft transcripts are completed in 1 business day, or 2-3 business days if you select timestamps and speaker IDs.
Our First Draft service comes with an expected ~98% accuracy, but it is not guaranteed and will vary based on audio quality.
