TERESA L. BARNETT
Director, Center for Oral History Research, UCLA
When people ask me for a list of transcribing agencies I would recommend, I invariably give them only one name: Technitype Transcripts. The UCLA Center for Oral History Research has worked with Technitype for over ten years, and the service we’ve received has always surpassed the service we’ve received with any of the transcription companies we’ve dealt with in the past. Not only is the quality of the transcripts consistently high, but working with Deborah Lattimore is an unalloyed pleasure. She attends to matters promptly and professionally, always communicates with us about any issues that arise, and is almost unbelievably conscientious in her attention to the individual transcripts and the quality of the work.

Deborah Lattimore has been an integral part of our Oral History Program for many years now. Her dedication and willingness to work with us on challenging recordings, oftentimes going the extra mile to help us out in tight time frames, has always been greatly appreciated. I never hesitate to recommend her when we receive inquiries.

JEAN STROUSE

Working with Deborah Lattimore on my first oral history project has been a great pleasure and an invaluable education. Along with her expertise and intelligence, she brings acute sensitivity to the content of each interview and becomes a welcome partner in the oral history process.

MARVIN J. TAYLOR
Director, Fales Library and Special Collections, New York University/ Editor, Voices from the Food Revolution
Deborah Lattimore and TechniType Transcripts are consummate professionals. We’ve used their services for many transcription projects, including our Voices from the Food Revolution oral histories. They work quickly with incredible accuracy and intelligence. I recommend them to anyone who inquires about expert transcription. Deborah is especially generous and easy to work with. You can’t go wrong working with her.

[Included in the preface to the book] Deborah Lattimore, the person responsible for transcribing the recorded interviews conducted for this project, embodies the definition of client service. She worked with me to ensure that the transcriptions accurately reflected the recordings and adhered to best practices in oral history. Her turnaround time was remarkable.

TechniType Transcripts and Deborah Lattimore have transcribed the majority of the oral histories for our Womens Veterans Historical Project. The accuracy of the transcripts and the easy but professional relationship with Deborah is remarkable. Our interviewees are some of her strongest supporters.

JAMES E. FOGERTY
Minnesota Historical Society
Deborah Lattimore and TechniType Transcripts have transcribed all of our oral histories since 1986. I recommend TechniType in all my workshops. The service is prompt, the work is superb, and the product is simply first-rate!

ANDREA FARKAS PATENAUDE, Ph.D.

Deborah Lattimore oversees a group of highly skilled transcribers who, within a week or so, produce faithful verbatim reports of taped interviews. She is responsive to requests, and the transcribers are very good at catching even difficult-to-hear phrases. They deal well with technical language. Deborah personally checks tapes for accuracy and completeness, and she is terrific to deal with. She understands about budget or other deadlines and works hard to deliver the products needed within the stated time limit. The copies which are received (electronic, paper, and e-mail versions are all provided) are in very good shape, ready to code. It’s rather like magic to have tape after tape come back in terrific written form. I recommend Deborah Lattimore and TechniType Transcripts very highly.

BRIT STOREY
Senior Historian, Bureau of Reclamation
In 1998 to 2002, I have been pleased to work with Deborah Lattimore and TechniType Transcripts in meeting the Bureau of Reclamation’s oral history transcription needs. Our contract with Technitype insists upon high standards of accuracy for our transcripts, and I’m pleased to report that our expectations in this regard have always been met. In addition, TechniType has provided us efficient transcription of tapes, particularly where we have had a need for quick turnaround. I unhesitatingly recommend TechniType for the quality of its work, speed of its service, and its courtesy.

TechniType Transcripts was wonderful to work with, always professional, and yet Deborah really took a personal interest in our project. Even though we are on opposite coasts, I would not hesitate to choose TechniType again.
