Human vs. Automation

Human transcription is done by a real person who listens to an audio file and converts it to text. Automated transcription uses speech recognition technology to convert audio files to text. Both are effective tools when used for the right purpose.

Transcription Works! has been wonderful for my physicians. Through this transcription company, they have seen a significant decrease in spelling and punctuation errors in comparison to previous services utilized. I would recommend Transcription Works! to anyone looking for fast, convenient, and accurate transcription services.

FB, Psychiatry Clinic

I have been working with Ms. Sandy Brende and her company, Transcription Works! since approximately March of 2009. Since that time I truly believe she has improved the quality of my practice in such that she has provided a high degree of professionalism in her work. She and her team have always returned fast, quality transcription as well as an adaptability to my changing needs and they have been able to do some jobs that have been very difficult and in very short notice. I appreciate them very much!

Brenda, Behavioral Health Clinic

We have been utilizing TW since June of 2011 and working with Sandy has been a pleasure. The communication with TW has been tremendous and the turnaround time has always been very quick, typically within 24 hours, but oftentimes better. I highly recommend TW to any organization looking for a way to keep up with dictation.
