The Evidence.com on-demand transcription service allows you to order transcriptions of any video or audio stored in Evidence.com, such as body camera video, in-car video, interview-room video and audio, and Axon Capture recordings.
After transcripts are completed, they are automatically stored in Evidence.com as accompanying metadata for easy access and sharing, without jeopardizing the chain of custody.
Transcriptions are rendered by a Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS)-compliant provider on a pay-as-you-go basis using US-based transcriptionists. Transcriptions are normally completed within 24 hours of the request.
Agencies that allow officers to verbally summarize report information in a recording or to a secretary to be typed out can use the transcription service for this purpose by having the officer record and upload the report to Evidence.com.
The Evidence.com on-demand transcription service currently integrates with SpeakWrite for transcriptions. For more information about SpeakWrite, please visit: www.speakwrite.com/axon.
We will announce partnerships with other law-enforcement transcription providers as they become available.
Note: This service is currently only available for customers in the United States, but will be expanding to other regions in the future.
