You can now upload photos for transcription directly from your mobile device with our app!

If you’re the kind of person that sometimes prefers to take handwritten notes, you’ve struggled with getting those transferred into digital format for official documentation. 

With our SpeakWrite app, you can now just snap a photo on your mobile device and upload them for transcription.

How does it work?

When you open the app, you will automatically be taken to the record screen. From this screen, select the menu option at the top left corner of the app. 

From there, you can upload audio or pdf files saved to your device, or you can upload images from your camera roll.

To upload photos, select that option from the menu.

Select “Add Photo”. Your camera roll will open and you will select the photo you want to upload to SpeakWrite.

If you have multiple photos to upload, repeat this step until all photos are listed.

Photos in the final document will be ordered in the same sequence they are uploaded.

For example, your first photo selected will be the first page of your document, etc.

You will then be taken to the job submission page where you can add a custom filename, select a template, or mark the job urgent. Once you’re happy with your selections, just click submit.

Your typed document will be delivered to you in about 3 hours.

Need to download or update the app?

If you do not have the app yet, you can download it here. 

If you need to update your app to get the latest version with this feature, just go to the app store, and search for the SpeakWrite app. Select the app from the list in the app store. When you open that selection, it should either say “Update” or “Open”. If it says “Update” just run the update. If it says “Open” that means you already have the most recent version.

How to Mail Your Recorded Tapes


Many clients have recorded mini or standard cassette tapes to submit to us for transcription, but would rather not use their staff and resources to input these tapes into our system. In these instances, you can have these recorded cassettes delivered to us, and we will upload them into our system for transcription for you. To use this method of submission, you must have an existing SpeakWrite account. Send recorded tapes via overnight courier or USPS to the following address:

SpeakWrite Tape Processing Center
6300 Bridgepoint Pkwy
Building 1, Suite 100
Austin, Texas 78730

(800) 828-3889
Attn: Production Manager

With each delivery, you must print out a Recorded Tape Transmittal Sheet and enclose it with the tapes to be transcribed. Your package must include properly addressed and pre-paid packaging and label for the return of your tapes, using a service that provides for delivery tracking. If this is not included, we will return your tapes to you and charge your account a $10.00 delivery fee. Immediately upon our receipt of your tapes, we will input them into the SpeakWrite system for transcription. You will receive the transcription of the taped material via the email address on your account, just as any other SpeakWrite job. Your tapes will be returned to you via the delivery method you designate 48 hours after the completion of your transcript. All work transcribed will be charged at the standard, per word rate. There is no additional charge for handling or inputting the tapes. Be sure to erase all previously recorded tapes completely before recording any new dictation in order to avoid having old work transcribed by mistake or jeopardizing the quality of the newly recorded material.
