The “d2u app” combines a world-class voice recorder with the one of the world’s top transcription services to provide you with the best dictation and transcription solution available. Record, edit and upload a digital recording then have the file accurately and efficiently transcribed to text anywhere, at anytime. All you need is an Internet connection.

Data Confidentiality and Security:

Our typists are located in our offices and they have no means of removing data from their machines. All typists have signed confidentiality agreements. We are fully Data Protected to the highest level with the Information Commissioners Office in the U.K. Our registration number is Z189181X. The d2u app supports 256 bit encryption for added security, whilst uploading your audio files to our secure server, using an SSL encrypted certificate on the web server via Apple's API.

Please feel free to request a copy of our I.T security policy.

Turnaround times of work:

We will transcribe the file into a “Microsoft Word Document Format”, (or if supplied, into users’ own templates), and it can be retrieved from your personal and secure d2u account page. Documents can be returned to the originating email address, by simply changing the settings in your account.

If the file length is:

-less than 5 minutes, d2u will endeavour to return your completed file(s) back within 60 minutes.
-more than 5 minutes, your completed files will be returned within 24hrs.

How much does it cost?

The d2u app is FREE to download and make recordings. We charge for each audio minute transcribed rather than per word, line or time taken to type, that way users know exactly what the cost will be before they send us the work. Our charges are totally transparent.

It is important to recognise that people dictate 3 to 4 times more quickly than they type, (and approximately 7 times more quickly than they write), so a 10-minute dictation could take 30 to 40 minutes to type. With d2u you only pay for 10 minutes whereas with a typist you would pay for the 30 to 40 minutes.

The price is £1.55 per audio whole minute. You can pay for credit using your debit/credit card or PayPal account.

We recommend that you use to convert the GBP (£) cost to USD ($), etc.

What's new

Detailed App Version -

- A bug was fixed that appeared when the transcription upload failed due to weak or poor internet connection. This fix enables the app to save the audio recording successfully and prevents the audio file from being saved in a bad state (which can result in the file being deleted).

- A bug was fixed in relation to the Wi-Fi / authorisation issue with our server when pressing Actions>Transcribe. We have added a new blocking UI to prevent access to the recorder when checking authorisation. This will ensure the app can process the requests without being interrupted.

- A bug was fixed which now allows users to zoom in and out on Word documents transcribed when on the dictate2us Account Web View.

Please note: The app may appear as if it is locked up but sometimes the timeout on the failed connection attempt takes around about 10 seconds to ensure an internet connection is not present.
