Converting Audio Files

Notice

The fastest way to return completed (transcribed) text to our customers is by sending us digital audio files. ACN recommends the use of digital audio files whenever possible, because unlike cassette tapes, there is no risk of the tape breaking or stretching.

How to Record Audio

Small file sizes are possible with the MP3 format, enabling sending of audio as email attachments.
For other file types (WAV, etc.), please burn to CD-R media and send to us.
