They are a very responsive company, continually keeping me informed as to the progress being made.

“From the start, dealing with Rachel was effortless. My recordings were in WebEx format, which was handled without any issue. Speedy Transcripts far exceeded my expectations. Rachel worked with diligence and care, accommodating my tight deadline. If you are looking for audio transcription services, there is no need to look elsewhere; Rachel is the only choice you’ll ever need. As proof, we’ve hired her for another job straight away!”

Speedy Transcripts and Speedy Subtitles

My name is Rachel Carter and I’m in charge of the transcription and subtitling services.


Send me your clear audio or video file with up to three participants and I will provide you with an accurate, speedy typed transcript in the format of your choice.

I can include timestamping, line numbering, speaker labelling and we can work together to ensure your transcript is in your preferred format.

I have many years of experience in transcribing and use all the latest technology including foot pedals, ergonomic keyboard and start/stop software to make the service as efficient and cost-effective as possible.

Don’t spend 8 hours* transcribing your 1 hour research interview – let us do the boring bit and free up your time for the more interesting stuff!

*Research students doing their own interview transcription reported taking around 8-9 real-time hours per hour of audio.


I can transcribe the dialogue in your video and turn the text into professional, accurately timed subtitles.

The process is simple:
Send me your video (.MP4 format or any other standard video format); or a link is sufficient if it is already online in a place where I can download it (on YouTube, for example).

You will receive the following:
A .txt document containing a full transcript of the dialogue;
An accurately timed .srt file ready to upload to your video host;
Help on uploading your subtitles to your online video if required.

If required, I will also return a copy of your video (in the same format & definition as I received it) with the subtitles fully embedded (‘hard’ subtitles).

I have several years’ experience of transcribing and subtitling for the TV and Media industry including BBC and Channel Four documentary interviews. I use the latest transcription and captioning technology as well as professional equipment such as ergonomic keyboards and foot pedals. Along with experience and high typing speeds this allows me to work fast and charge a low rate of just £5 per minute of video (minimum charge £15 per project).
