Transcription Services

GIS provides highly accurate, printed English translations of signed, videotaped source material for dissertation work, research or media use.

We provide transcription services from American Sign Language (ASL) on video format to written English text on CD/DVD. GIS does not recommend transcriptions made from audiotaped voiced interpretations of ASL source material.

The estimated time for transcription work with highly detailed, highly accurate rendering, is approximately 2-3 hours per 15 minutes of videotape.

Transcription materials must be submitted on standard VHS videotapes, and DVD format. Transcription work is billed at the regular hourly interpreting rate. Gallaudet departments seeking transcription services should consider including transcription costs when submitting grant requests for research projects.

For more information, please contact GIS at or (202) 651-5199.
