The first kind of transcripts is the verbatim transcripts. This type of transcription is the most difficult, complicated and time-consuming and thus it is expensive too. When a client asks for a verbatim transcript then he means that every single word or line mumbled or spoken needs to be recorded as it were spoken by the speaker in the audio/video file. It should be ensured that each spoken word, every laugh, every emotion, background noise, mumbled or garbled sentences or words is transcribed and time-coded in the written format. Verbatim transcription would require the transcribers to transcribe even those half sentences and phrases that were spoken in the recording by the speakers. While working on a verbatim transcription, the transcribers need to pay close attention to all kind of emotions displayed in the audio/video recorded file. Even those “um..., uh..., uh-huh..., you know, gotta, gonna, wanna” types of words need to be added in the transcripts. Emotions like laughter, fear, excitement, tremors in voice also need to be noted down while working on verbatim type of transcripts. In short, the written format of a verbatim transcription must be an exact replica of the audio or video file as recorded. Verbatim transcripts are mostly done for legal cases where every word plays an important role as a part of evidence as well as in movies, films, videos, commercials, etcetera.
