Audio Transcription

Audio is an essential format that allows people with a visual impairment to access information that would otherwise not be available to them. In addition, people with partial sight, age related sight loss, dyslexia and learning difficulties often find the spoken word preferable as a means of accessing the written word. In short, providing your information in audio format means that you can reach a wider audience.

Experienced professionals based within All Formats can produce audio in a way that is engaging, in keeping with the brand image and attractive to potential customers.

Our specialist audio transcription service

All Formats provide can convert almost any type of document into an audio format at an affordable price. We have many years experience in transcribing a wide range of documents into an audio format that not only retains the integrity of the original document but also engages the listener. We take great pride in ensuring that all of the audio produced is of the highest standard.

A member of our highly experienced All Formats team will be able to provide guidance and advice throughout the whole of the audio production process.

We produce a number of different types of audio depending upon the requirements of the client, and the document to be transcribed. These range from the use of a synthetic voice to using one or more of our experienced readers, along with background music and sound effects.

Our process

We are able to accept and transcribe documents in many formats whether hard copy or electronic (Word, PDF, Excel, Publisher, PowerPoint etc). Once a document is received, our expert and highly trained team will produce a script and indexing system that is suitable for a person with a visual impairment. For example, items such as pictures and diagrams are replaced with an audio description.

Depending upon the type of audio to be produced, an appropriate voice, relevant music and sound effects are sourced. The audio is then recorded, digitally edited and mastered to obtain a highly professional outcome. The All Formats team then check the final audio document against the original to ensure that accuracy is maintained.

The finished audio file can be supplied either on CD, cassette tape or as an electronic file such as MP3. It can also include any branding and packaging that is relevant to you. We are able to duplicate high quantities if required. The transcribed audio document is then dispatched back to you or directly to the end user.

All Formats are also able offer a podcast production and hosting service. Podcasting enables your customers to subscribe and gain access to your audio information. It is a simple process to subscribe and podcasts are available on many platforms (PC’s, mobile phones, MP3 players). Once subscribed, customers will automatically receive your audio files as soon as they have been produced and made available. The audio offered on the podcast will be identical to and of the same quality as the other audio formats that we create. Podcasting offers the opportunity of direct marketing to all of your customers, including those who find it difficult to read the written word.

We have a strong track record of dealing with highly sensitive confidential information in the appropriate manner.
