"I make fairly extensive use of DTFL's transcription service and have found it to be highly professional, fast and efficient - noticeably better than competitive services I have tried in the past. The recordings I send to DTFL are more difficult than "normal" dictation, being recordings of lengthy interviews, with some participants having quite strong regional accents. I am impressed with the accuracy of the transcripts despite these extra complications. I would not hesitate to recommend DTFL's services to others."
