The Specialist Typing Service Catering Exclusively for the Property Industry

How does it work?

Picture
1.Record your audio dictation using your digitaldictation machine.      
Most surveyors use the Olympus system whichproduces .dss files.  

2.Email your audio dictation file to 
These are the most common file formats weregularly type:
.dss (Olympus recorder format)
.mp3
.wav
We can also open a number of other formats, so please enquire. 
3.Enclose a copy of a previous report/document template (preferably in MicrosoftOffice Word format) so we can ensure the finished document matches your usual formatting. 

Turnaround - FAST RELIABLE TURNAROUND TIMES!

Property Typing Services endeavour to return all typing to you within 24 hours but occasionally this can be within 48 hours.  Please let us know if your audio file has a particularly short deadline and we will let you know the timescale which will usually be within 24 hours.  We are also available to work at weekends when required so please ask.  

Inaudible or  Unclear Audio - CLEAR INDICATION OF INAUDIBLE OR QUERIED SECTIONS SAVING YOU TIME!

On the rare occasions our typists are unable to hear what is being said in the audio or are unsure which section it relates to etc., this will be clearly marked up with the time position of the audio and highlighted in a clear colour e.g. [18.25] or [should this be under “roofs?”].

To minimise the frequency of these occurrences, please ensure that the audio is recorded in an audible, clear, background noise free environment without rushing the dictation or whispering/keeping the microphone too close to your mouth which causes distortion.  If the dictation is rushed and clipped/unclear, this will cause you more time in the long run as there will be more gaps to fill in where we were unable to hear the dictation.
