Media, Publishers & Podcasts

Midlands Transcription Services offer a reliable and professional transcription service for writers, publishers, radio, television & production companies.

Confidential media services for writers, publishers, radio, television & production companies, transcribing from podcasts, videos, group interviews and much more.

A specialist time stamping service allows for synchronisation of the transcript and respective audio or video file.


Podcasts are becoming a fast medium of communication in business, radio & entertainment. With a global audience, podcasts need to be effective and not to get cluttered with slang vocabulary or local accents. People who listen to podcasts use the contents for further referencing and research and  the ready availability of an accurate text to read side by side could be of great help.


Video transcripts are useful to production companies, they enable the use of  editing & subtitles, having a video transcript can make life easier by saving you time and effort when it comes to producing the best final edit possible.


When collecting research data for a book project, it is important to keep a careful track of your records and notes. A lot of authors these days use an audio recorder in their interviews so that they can refer to the subject’s exact words more readily. Transcribing these recordings allows for easier analysis by the author as it allows you to search for keywords, better analyse themes and pull quotes at a glance rather than searching through your recording to find the important messages to highlight. Another service Midlands Transcription Services offers is line numbering, this enables authors/publishers to be able to refer back to certain areas of a script for editing purposes, without having to scroll through pages and pages of text.

As a writer, you may also choose to record yourself speaking instead of sitting in front of a computer screen or a blank piece of paper. That way you can just talk without thinking about grammar, spelling, layout etc.
