EXPERIENCE: Legal audio typing (2,912 minutes & 43 seconds of audio), interviews (3,866 minutes & 28 seconds of audio), and up to 125 pages typed out from hard copy into soft copy. I have an average speed of 100 wpm, and get regular practice with touch typing.
ABOUT ME: My name is Nathaniel Volfango and I'm a college student currently studying BSc Financial Mathematics and Actuarial Science (3rd year) in UCC.
PRICE: HIGHLY NEGOTIABLE. The standard price is €5.00 per page on Microsoft Word (font size – 12) (averaging at €.90-€1.40 per minute of audio, with respect to audio speed) and a range of 375-500 words per page (depending on structure of the page/s) OR €10.00 per 1,000 words. If you're looking for audio transcription in a hurry I can offer a quick turnaround but will have to charge a bit more.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK: I'm available for any kind of audio typing, typing out handwritten notes, and for any other typing job. Every project will be handled with complete confidentiality. I will strive to be as accurate as possible relative to the quality of the audio. If you want a specific structure in your audio transcription, feel free to let me know.
It would be helpful if you could give as many details as you can about the transcription such as the following: Do you want me to type out exactly what the speakers say, take out the ums and ers but retain the rest, polish up the sentences so they make grammatical sense, or make non-native English speakers sound like native English speakers? For interviews, do you want me to include the full questions or just notes? If the person being interviewed says that something is off the record, will I stop typing, or take it down and mark it up as off the record? Do you want me to include and mark pauses, and how? How do you want me to mark unclear sections or words that I can’t understand? Do you want me to timestamp the document (i.e insert 05:00, 10:00 etc. at the relevant points in the document), and how often, if at all? How do you want me to differentiate between the speakers? (first initial, surname, in bold, with a colon to putting the questions in italics with no names, etc.) Do you want US or UK spelling? Oxford -z- spellings or “British English” -s- spellings? Do you have a special font or line spacing you'd like for me to use? Do you have a template that you'd like for me to use? The list above is just a guide, but keep in mind that whatever you don't tell me, I'll improvise myself.
