A wide range of transcription services are
available to Farmington customers through
Type-thing Services. We excel in each
discipline through experience and a diverse
staff with domain knowledge and secretarial
skills. We have found this to be true because
accuracy along with competency in spelling
and grammar form the basis for quality transcription. We help you
present a professional image by providing proofed, accurate
transcription with corrected grammar and spelling. If verbatim
content is the goal, we will not alter grammar. Of course,
discipline-specific terminology and formatting is required to make
our work more efficient and useful for our customers. See the brief
descriptions below or click on the buttons to the left.
Phone-in, Audio / Video Tape, Digital Audio / Video Files
Dictation can be performed in a number of formats. We have found phone-in dictation to be the most convenient and
efficient for our customers that need to dictate on the go or in an office environment. We'll work to transcribe the format
you have, or suggest other beneficial methods! We can transcribe all tape sizes as well as most digital audio files provided
to us on disk or over the Internet.
We have Internet services where you can upload your files to us. We can convert most video tape formats (e.g., VHS,
SVHS, 8mm, Digital, etc.) to audio tape in preparation for transcription. More information about formats is contained
under each of the transcription types listed below and to the left. We have the ability to digitally enhance audio through
various computer programs we use to ensure the most accurate transcription.
Service to Farmington, New Mexico customers is typically handled via email, Internet File Transfer, express delivery, U.S.
Mail or courier.
Confidentiality of transcription materials is always considered at Type-thing Services. All of our staff sign confidentiality
agreements, and we will sign one with your organization and follow the measures needed to meet your objectives. All
paper products are shredded, access to computers and computer files is restricted through password. Data transferred or
stored on the Internet is appropriately encrypted as arranged with the customer. With regard to protecting private
information (verbal, written, electronic), we follow standards for "Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information"
in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and its updates.
Each domain (business, medical, legal, etc.) of transcription usually requires specific methods of costing because of content
and required output. Please see the specific page describing that domain or our rates page.
We consider the transcribed material (document files) to be your property. We will provide it to you as formatted printouts
or as electronic files via email, FTP, Internet file sites, a disk, CD ROM, DVD ROM, or other format to suit your needs.
We typically use Microsoft Office products, but can also provide PDF and Open Office formats.
When we create intermediate digital audio files or enhancement to those audio files for our transcription purposes, those
files are not delivered to our customers. This is because those files are intended may not be created with rigor for delivery
to our customers and are intended for our use only. Arrangements can be made for a cost to provide those enhanced files to
We maintain archives of all your electronic file transcripts in case you need access to them in the future. If you prefer all
records to be purged, we will be happy to do so. Due to their large size, digital audio files are only maintained for a short
period unless other arrangements have been made with Type-thing Services.

Although there is some overlap in how you may utilize these areas of transcription, the following topics may help
differentiate dictation and transcription types
Why is Type-thing Services less expensive and a better value?
We are often asked about the cost of our transcription. Our total cost to you is often less and our overall value greater than
our competitors. Here are a few reasons why:
We can provide 24 hour to 48 hour turn around in some situations including scheduled regular work or upon notice
for urgent work if we have enough capacity (at rush rates).
When we charge by the word for medical transcription, you're not charged for many lines on reports or forms that
have only a few characters or words. Why would you want to pay a line rate for reports that contain very sparse
Transcripts usually require verbatim transcription; however, other business transcription such as letters or medical
reports do not. For those, unless you say otherwise, we convert your spoken English into written English, remove
redundancies, and end up reducing the word and line count for your finished product. This saves you money. Many
other services type exactly what you say, resulting in more cost to you and words you must delete from the finished
When we apply our secretarial skills to convert your documents into final form during the transcription process, you
spend less of your time or no time trying to fix faulty transcription from over-seas or less capable services.
If your transcription works well in a form or template, then we may be able to set up a system where you are only
charged for the parts you dictate, not the entire content of your form.
For volume customers, we provide a reasonable amount of stat reports at no charge!
If your business or legal audio is of poor quality, we'll contact you before proceeding. We won't create and charge for
a useless transcript of "indiscernibles" that you cannot use. If you want to proceed, we can attempt to enhance the
audio or spend extra time working through the material slowly at additional expense.
We are skilled at providing analysis of your dictation to identify ways to reduce your overall bill. Once we're familiar
with your style, we can do this for individuals and offices that have many dictators. Which are verbose? Which are
efficient? We can provide suggestions for you or your staff about how to reduce your time dictating and reduce your
bill. Why? Many times this also saves us much time listening to long dictations that contain fewer words. If you're
