Terms of Service
I (“Client”) agree to pay Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription (“Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription”) for any and all transcription work or other services performed by Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription (the “Work”) on my or my company’s behalf on audio and/or video material submitted by me (“Source Material”). Client has reviewed and agrees to the rates on Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription’s website for its services and agrees to pay for all work performed by Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription promptly and in full.
Client is fully aware and agrees that it is responsible for an accurate and truthful description of the audio contained on its Source Material. Regardless of Client’s description of the Source Material, in the event its description is inaccurate, the appropriate classification below will apply for all purposes hereunder, including rates. If Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription determines that its classification of any Source Material is different than the Client’s, it will notify the Client before proceeding with the Work. Client agrees that any work performed over five minutes on an individual file will be charged and paid for by Client. Any samples up to five minutes will not be charged to Client.
Client agrees and understands that pricing is based on the number of minutes in an audio file or source. Client also agrees and understands that audio variables might increase the price. Client also agrees and understands that the level of turnaround time may or may not impact the cost. Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription guarantees a 98% accuracy rate or higher for good audio. This is any Source Material that is clearly recorded in a controlled environment (preferably professionally) with one person either talking or interviewing one subject with minimal background noise interference and no media noise or defects. The format must be recorded digitally (i.e., mp3), or on CD or DVD. Client understands that poor duplication procedures can lead to degradation of the original Source Material and could result in a delay or higher price, depending on the degree of degradation. While Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription does its best to get the most accurate transcript possible regardless of the quality of audio, client should be aware that any audio that does not meet the previous criteria may impact the quality of the transcript and cause it to drop below the 98% accuracy rate. If for some reason, the client is not satisfied with his/her transcript and thinks it falls below the 98% accuracy rate and it was good audio, client has one full month to notify Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription so that it can examine the discrepancy.
The burden of proof rests with Client and Client realizes and accepts that no transcript is ever “perfect.” Judgment calls have to be made on punctuation, spellings, grammar, etc. Furthermore, often the spoken word consists of run-on sentences and other grammatically incorrect language. Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription does not correct grammar. it only transcribes what is on the Source Materials. If its accuracy rate is indeed below 98%, Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription will correct the mistakes free of charge.
All Source Materials are subject to Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription’s acceptance, which it may exercise in its sole and absolute discretion. Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription has the right to reject, in its sole and absolute discretion, any Source Material for any reason whatsoever, including without limitation that it is considered to be of such poor quality that: 1. transcription is not possible or 2. the project is beyond Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription’s resources. If the audio quality of any Source Material appears to be different than the quality represented by Client, Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription will contact Client and discuss this discrepancy and a possible increased rate. If the parties are unable to agree on the appropriate rate, Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription may decline to work on the project and, in such case, all Source Materials will be returned and no Work will be performed by Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription.
If the source audio appears to have a large
number of inaudibles or questionable words, Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription
will contact the client with a five minute sample. All work will stop
for that particular file until the client has notified Daniel Amanya/ABC
Transcription if he/she would like to proceed with the file. If the
client would prefer to not proceed, Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription will not
charge the client for the first five minutes of the sample transcript.
Any audio that is completed that is over five minutes of audio on a file will
be charged to the client.
Client acknowledges that Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription bills per minute of recorded audio and not on page count, number of characters, or work hours. Any additional seconds that do not make up a full sixty (60) seconds are billed as a minute. Client agrees to pay the rates prevailing at the time the Work is requested as set forth in the Rates section of Daniel Amanya/ABC Transcription’s website. A 50% deposit is required for new clients before commencement of Work. Full payment is expected upon receipt of completed transcript. For long-term and ongoing projects, Client agrees to be billed bi-weekly for work completed to date and payment is expected within 5 days of receipt of invoice.. All clients have the option of paying by visa card, mobile money, or PayPal.
