We offer an array of transcription rates and turnaround times.  The fastest transcript turnaround time we offer is 24 hours.  Most projects have a deadline of one week, and this tends to be an industry standard.  Since quality is directly related to expected turnaround times, projects with a longer turnaround time will yield higher quality transcripts due to additional time allowed for the editing process.

Our transcription company rates vary depending on factors that may include, but are not limited to, the required turnaround time, clarity of voice, accents, audio quality, number of speakers and technical terminology beyond industry standard.

The quality of the audio file itself is an important factor when providing a quote for a project.  If an audio file is low quality and has background noise, the price of that project will increase.  Poor quality audio files take a long time to transcribe, as the transcriptionist is forced to replay segments of the audio numerous times.

Transcription rates depend upon many factors, briefly outlined below as follows:


  • Near “Broadcast Quality” CAD $0.00
  • Some Faintness or Background Noise (+CAD$.20/rec. min.)
  • Frequent Faintness or Background Noise (+CAD$.50/rec. min.)
  • Poor Quality with Much Faintness and Background Noise (+CAD$.80/rec. min.)


  • Two to Four Speakers (+CAD$.60/rec. min.)
  • Five or More Speakers (+CAD$.80/rec. min.)


  • Strict Verbatim (+ CA$0.40/rec. min.)


  • Every 30 secs. (+CAD$0.40/rec. min.)
  • Every 60 secs. (+CAD$0.20/rec. min.)


  • Transcription of Technical Content (+CAD$0.40/rec. min.)

    Examples include audio of a complex nature requiring research to reference acronyms, terminology, etc.
