Besides the ability to quickly and easily place orders and upload digital audio files to Allegis for transcription, it also allows you to view, print, and download your transcripts right from our secure site.

From here you can also forward copies of your transcripts to a third-party via email.

Our Standard service level turnaround for digital audio is 4 business days, Priority is 2 business days and Rush (with a 4-hour turnaround) is available for audio recordings that are no more than 40 minutes in length. For cassette orders, turnaround times are 5 days for standard, 3 days for Priority and 1 day for Rush/Next Day. All cassette turnarounds include courier time to and from Allegis if shipped using overnight or rush service.
