"Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything."-Wyatt Earp
For SCOPING & PROOFREADING, please download, print, fill out, and sign either the Word or PDF version of the Preference Sheet.
After completion, return the form to me either via Dropbox or email. It may be returned either as a scanned document or by taking a photo of each page with your phone, then Dropboxing or emailing those pages to me--either works just fine.
I do the "everything" and with accuracy.
After scoping and/or proofreading every transcript, I use a good-old-fashioned paper checklist to ensure I have not missed anything. *Click on the "Button" below to take a peek at my checklist:)
Here are the transcript inaccuracies/issues that I look for and then correct:
Cross-checking consistency and accuracy of names, exhibits, & dates throughout the transcript
Spelling, jargon, slang, terminology, locations, and names
Formatting: bylines, Q & A, tabs, justification, spacing, colloquy, indexes, appearance pages, certificates, & title pages
Correct word usage, missing words, & homophones
