Therefore, working with our partner DMCL, we are able to advise on the most appropriate equipment on a case by case basis. Additionally, our mobile App is often used to record one-to-one and small meetings.

Media and Interviews Pricing - standard and premium rates

* Standard and premium rates shown are for 1:1 interviews using our intelligent verbatim transcription service.

Selecting the Correct Transcription Type

Intelligent Verbatim

OutSec transcriptionists take a common-sense approach filtering out words not relevant to the subject matter, such as all “umms”, “ahhs”, laughter and pauses. As a result, an “intelligent “ transcript is provided. This is the least expensive and most commonly requested type of transcript.


This is a full and accurate script that has been formalised. Often used by lecturers or conference organisers it is edited for readability and clarity. In other words, a clear and easy to read transcript appropriate for B2B communications and publishing houses (particularly academic reports).


Meaning ‘word for word’, this includes every utterance, cough, pause, unfinished sentence, stutters and stammers. In other words, it is a 100% accurate record, where humanly possible. It is often used for psychology and police records. 

Video Transcription or Captions? Which is best for you?

Time-coded transcripts are the raw data from which closed captions & subtitles are made. Closed captions are carefully sequenced to the action on the screen. We can offer to create Basic or Premium captions based on client needs.

Videos are increasingly being viewed with the sound switched off and adding captions will increase audience engagement. In addition, SEO will be increased enabling better online visibility for content producers and/or index videos for researchers.

So why not open an account today and benefit from premium typing at reduced costs?
