Intelligent Verbatim vs Strict Verbatim Transcription

Intelligent Verbatim: Transcript Divas “standard format” is intelligent verbatim. We never summarize or paraphrase, the intent is to clean up the language – removing stutters, repetitions, filler words  (e.g. um, er, huh), false starts etc. The focus is on producing a readable, well-spoken transcript.

Strict Verbatim: This is usually used as part of academic work or “discourse analysis”, or legal transcripts.  The transcript will reflect all utterances; false starts; filler words (e.g. um, uh) and all slang, (e.g. gonna, kinda, sorta, coz).
