Good transcripts are accurate, well-presented and easy to read. A good grasp of English grammar and punctuation rules is essential to making good transcripts.

Here are some quick tips:

  • Transcripts should accurately reflect the audio.
  • Paragraphs should not be longer than 8-10 lines and should keep concepts grouped together.
  • It should be clear in the transcript exactly who is talking.
  • Sound effects should be adequately described.
