Most transcription services cite error percentages based on the word error rate (WER) standard. WER does not measure speaker identifications, paragraphing, or punctuation. This makes WER an overall weak metric when comparing the fidelity of their results to the verbatim standards of legal documents. Parrot’s verbatim accuracy standards are based upon the error percentage compared to a verbatim legal transcript and include most punctuation, precise speaker identifications, paragraphing, and unique job-related terminology.
Parrot outputs to RTF/CRE, enabling users to leverage the powerful legal transcription tools already at their disposal. Users can edit their final transcripts in any word processor or translate their Parrot job directly in CAT software. Translating in CAT software offers unique and invaluable benefits, including
Custom layouts and formatting
Audiosync with Parrot-generated audio files
Auto-includes and block files
Automatic number conversion
Shared document collaborative editing
Parrot’s live monitoring provides instantaneous feedback of the recording directly to the user’s ears via headphones. We 100% guarantee that what you hear is exactly what’s being written to your computer’s hard drive. Users have the option to engage live monitoring at any point during the recording. Instant display of the ASR text adds an additional layer of quality assurance for users.
