See What You Said’s Transcription Rates Explained

My rates are charged per audio minute, and audio minutes are rounded up to the next whole number. Prices are based upon the turnaround times shown above. So for example:

Audio file length = 30 minutes

Difficulty level = Normal

Desired turnaround time = 5 days ($1.50)

30 x $1.50 = $45.00
