Transcripts can also be a very helpful and necessary tool for your hearing impaired employees and clients. We transcribe every word verbatim or "clean it up." We will transcribe all of your audio to text or video to text files accurately and on-time. ​Time coding can be included to ease your editing process, by using your window burns or we can go by our audio/video counter.

All documents are emailed to you upon completion in a Word document. Use our private FTP site to send us your audio/video files.

Legal proceedings are certified copies and are printed and mailed, unless other arrangements have been made. In some cases for legal investigation interviews, we will save those in certified, secured, PDF files to prevent anyone editing the documents.

​If you are with a State of Minnesota agency or corporation, Word Tech Secretarial Service is TG/ED Certified and contracted vendor with the City of Minneapolis, State of Minnesota and University of Minnesota for transcription services. Word Tech is also certified in the CERT Program for Hennepin/Ramsey County and City of St. Paul. We also hold certification with MnUCP/DBE (Disadvantaged Business Enterprise.) Word Tech has also been fully vetted to transcribe any law enforcement interviews/interrogations/audio/video files and have Level 2 CJIS Security and Awareness Training.
