Difficulty Levels

The level of difficulty for an audio file is based on the legibility of the audio and the number of speakers. The legibility can be affected by many factors including background noise, accents, volume, crosstalk between the speakers, and other problems with the file.

  • Level 1: 1-2 speakers, no background noise, accents, or faint speakers.
  • Level 2: 3-4 or moderate background noise, moderate accents, some unintelligible speech.
  • Level 3: 5+ speakers, focus groups, high background noise, difficult accents, lots of crosstalk and unintelligible speech.

For the 1-day service, expect a 24-hour turnaround time. This means if audio files are submitted at 5:00 pm today, the client will receive completed transcripts at 5:00 pm the next day.
