There are a number of ways to transfer your digital files to us for transcription. Most of our clients use our SSL secure server to upload their digital files as the quickest, easiest, safest and most effective transcription upload solution.
Suitable for all digital file formats, you can use our secure SSL server – simply click here (or the Upload files link in the drop down menu above), choose your files, specify the return time you require, add any instructions and upload your audio. Fast and safe option. We will transcribe the recording and return by email.
Suitable only for smaller sized files and .DSS files. Olympus have made their files so compressed that even a recording of 45 minutes can be emailed through.
If your files are located on your local server we can download the files directly. This technique is used regularly by a large number of academic institutions.
Post USB (memory) sticks, CDs and other similar storage media to our office.
Dropbox, OneDrive and Google Drive
File sharing utilities which allow you to put a folder on your desktop with a folder stored in the cloud online. Free to use, simply install, set up and share the folder containing your files with email@example.com
Yousendit.com and WeTransfer.com
Very powerful US based file transfer programmes. The basic versions are free, but you are limited in size of file to transfer. Check the current rates for information.
This is a 3rd party file transfer programme and we do not recommend you use it. Although you can send any file, any size, anywhere in the world, completely free of charge, it involves entering credit card details and navigating pages of pop up adverts, which is never a good thing. Make sure you do not click the premium service buttons and you will not incur any costs. We prefer WeTransfer ourselves..
We work with a range of media, including (but not excluding any others): VHS Video, CD, DVD, standard cassette tapes, microcassette tapes, macrocassette tapes, mini disks and records. As a result there are lots of different techniques best for sending each type of recording.
