  • We can scribe teleconference meetings/interviews of any number of people, as you speak, via telephone

  • If your meeting/interview is face-to-face, we may be able to offer an on-site scribe, depending on your location

  • If your meeting is face-to-face and you are expecting a lot of people to be present (e.g. an AGM), you will need an on-site scribe; or, if this is not available, we may recommend you record the meeting and sent the digital audio file to us for transcription (see Online audio transcription).
