"ATS was highly recommended to me by a Weltec Student. As soon as I contacted them they responded super quick. In 24 hours my video was turned into a Mp3 audio and I had received a very detailed written transcript back by email. Affordable, friendly and excellent transcript service, I can recommend ATS to anybody".
