Choose someone who works as hard as you do: - Dedicated, full-time transcriptionist with professional software and equipment - Native English speaker who fears no dialect of her mother tongue - Fantastic spelling, grammar and formatting skills - Friendly and accommodating, with sharp ears and fast hands - My transcriptions look great with or without the audio - I care about your privacy and will sign an NDA to that effect My goal is to deliver to you high-quality transcripts that inspire us both.
