Our Customers Say

I CastingWords.

"CastingWords seems like a magic trick to me—I babble for an hour, upload an MP3, and, somehow, they turn that into paragraphs. In, like, a day. It's nuts. Like making a lady disappear. Love these guys"

I also really appreciate your professionalism, prompt responses, and help.

"I had gone through three other companies before I found yours and it was a nightmare with those other three and such a gift to have found CastingWords. Your website is incredibly easy, appreciate how seamless the billing is and a relief that the documents are there for access at anytime. Your fees are the lowest for the highest quality."

We always come back to CastingWords.

"As an institution, we’re regularly invited to try other transcription services — but after each free trial ends, we always come back to CastingWords. Other companies’ products, customer service, and rates just can’t compete!"

This service is a keeper.

"I really love CastingWords. It is so great that one less thing in my Internet business requires me to deal with finding my a service provider myself. Not only is it cheaper than a solo transcriber would charge, the results are more predictable and it takes all of 2 minutes to request and pay for a transcription."
Chris Crompton


"The Polish proper names were almost perfectly transcribed. Wow! Thank you!"

Adding the timestamps upgrade allows journalists and reporters to zero in on quotable material when writing articles. Podcasters get episode transcripts for a great SEO boost, and of course the captions upgrade allows any transcript to be synced to video recordings to create onscreen subtitles or captions.
