Audio transcription (text conversion)
Audio transcription method: We do not correct the speaker’s grammar. We only transcribe what the speaker says. The only changes we make are the following: *1

   If the speaker repeats a phrase or self-corrects, we will omit the repeated or 
   corrected content. For example,

     ・I think, I think that---  ⇒   I think that---
     ・In June, no, July---  ⇒   In July---

Audio transcription does not include correcting the speaker's grammar. For example., if the speaker says "He go to …"we will transcribe as it was spoken rather than correcting it to "He goes to …".
If you wish to have grammatical corrections done in addition to the audio transcription, please indicate that you would like a separate proofreading. Upon completion, we will deliver both the transcribed text as well as the proofread corrected version.
