Supplementary feedback provides greater insight regarding what types of errors brought down a score in a particular area, and what the transcriber can work on to provide even better communication access.
Two options for supplementary feedback
List of transcript deficiencies ($20) — A simple list of each type of error or issue identified in the transcript. The deficiencies are not listed in order of frequency or severity, nor are they prioritized. A one-page PDF document will be delivered by email within 5 business days.
Example of Simple Feedback
Detailed feedback report ($50) — In addition to the comprehensive list of transcript deficiencies, these issues/errors will be prioritized in terms of frequency and/or severity, with elaboration where possible, and with a prioritized list of strategies for improvement. A 3-5 page PDF document will be delivered by email within 10 business days.
Example of Detailed Feedback
If you have already ordered and received Option 1, you can pay the difference of $30 and upgrade your report to Option 2.
