Non-verbatim ("Clean Verbatim") Data Capture, without time stamping

Not word-for-word capture, but intelligently capturing the meaning by removing all filler words (umm, uhh, ahh, hmm, etc.) as well as false starts, repetitions and stutters. For example, “Umm it was, like, you know, s-s-something special" is transcribed as "It was something special".

We also mark silent pauses lasting longer that five seconds and vocalizations (laughter, crying etc..) in the transcript. All words are captured in the vernacular they are spoke or direct speech (e.g., "gonna" instead of "going to"). However, we do offer non-vernacular upon request.
