Project Description


Notice: This is basically a repost with more details. For this reason I am reposting this instead of simply hiring someone from the original post which does not say much about the job. I had someone do the job and it didnt come out right and now the thing needs to be redone.

Thank you for understanding if you have already applied and please reapply or message me if it doesn't let you reapply.

I have 8.5 hours of audio that needs to be transcribed, basically verbatim without uh's, ah's and with little to No deviation from the points which are at times a quite convoluted or complicated. This is metaphysical in nature so it would be a plus to have familiarity with different concepts from metaphysical, spiritual, religious and scientific schools of thought as a lot of what is discussed is relative to each of these categories, if not that is okay, though it should be noted that this is basically going to be verbatim so there should not be too many issues involved in understanding what is being written. It is being originated into audio with no preformed structure behind it, as it is improvised. This will be used to create the substance of a manuscript for a book.

I will need a FIXED price and time frame in your bid. All work must be backed up as there is no allowance for delays once our time frame has been established as there has been a situation before requiring a complete rewrite of all work because the product had not been soon enough backed up. I will require frequent updates (at least once per day about the work, where your at, and any bench marks you are setting so i can see the flow of your pace)

Transcription Job Details:

Basically verbatim, with no ah's/uh's

The content is improvised, so no structure as with a read lecture

Is for a manuscript for a book, so the preparation needs to reflect the process. It will later be edited, but must be nearly 100% accurate.

If you are not sure about this, don't apply

If you are not experienced with transcriptions of this nature, please don't apply.

If your not keen on retaining the words of the speaker, please disregard.

Though if a quality product that most truly reflects that nature of the message is what you enjoy creating and transcribing, you may be the one

If you will keep me thoroughly updated frequently once a day or more then please consider.

Attached is a 2 minute sample of how the recordings are going to sound.

Thank You.
