Description: I am writing a novel about extreme skiing and ski mountaineering. I will interview dozens of characters and have hundreds of hours of audio conversations in digital format. I want someone to transcribe these conversations and put them into Word so that I can use dialogue as needed for my novel. Much of the dialogue is done in on one to one or meetings in public places so it can get a little difficult understanding all words spoken due to background noise. I don't care about 100% accuracy as I am more concerned with price than quality. Some of the audio files will have blank area with no conversation due to the spontaneity of this. I am not a professional interviewer. So I think I would be most interested in a transcribed per word price if possilbe. The going rate I pay for this work is between .[url removed, login to view] cts per word. Obviously the lowest responsive bidder will get the lion's share of the work.
Interested bidders should go to [url removed, login to view] to sample the interviews and the transcribed work. Preferred format is the interviewer, usually me to be distinquished by italics or some other convention. New bidders should provide me with a small sample, 100 words, of their work from one of the interviews that has not yet been transcribed. I have placed the software link at the top of the www. [url removed, login to view] that will allow you to convert the software into wav format. I don't like to post the .wav files as they are too large. If you have trouble getting the software installed, I can supply wave format or mp3 files but they are all many times the size file. I pay immediately by paypal upon submission of the completed and satisfactory work product. I have had a previious project posted with 100% satisfied freelancers.
