We use the same level of security as banks, including multifactor authentication. We conduct annual security risk assessments, and every staff member undergoes a thorough background check. Upon request, we can redact all PII and PHI to preserve research subject anonymity.

  • Security Risk Assessments
  • Business Associate Agreements
  • HIPAA & Cybersecurity Training
  • Proactive Cyberthreat Monitoring

Transcribed Data Formatted to Your Exact Needs

Athreon’s approach to speech to text aligns with your data processing requirements. Our transcripts are an accurate record of your recorded interviews with speaker diarization, time stamping, and non-verbal cue annotation.

When you need a word-for-word account of your audio or video file, including all false starts, slang, stutters, fillers and interrupting phrases, our Verbatim Service is for you. Likewise, if you require customized transcript formatting to support analytical efforts, our Verbatim+ Service fills this need.

If your objective is a concise and clear transcript uncluttered by verbatim nuances, our Clean-Read Service is the way to go. Our Clean-Read Service maintains the meaning of spoken dialogue without paraphrasing or summarizing.

Athreon Is Compatible With Your QDA Software

Whether you use NVivo, ATLAS.ti, MAXQDA, SPPS, or something else, our transcripts and translations are compatible with your qualitative data analysis (QDA) software. Our structured format transcripts seamlessly import into your QDA package. What’s more, Athreon can add codes during the transcription process and export transcripts in multiple formats (XML, RTF, PDF, and others) to further support your analytical objectives.

Transcription Technology That Makes Your Life Easier

Over 200 speech scientists and researchers make our speech technology the industry’s best. Because Athreon’s AI transcription technology produces high-quality transcripts in a matter of minutes, we can accelerate document delivery cycles. And because a human editor reviews each transcript before document delivery, researchers are assured that data integrity is maintained.

Translation Options Make Athreon Your One-Stop Shop for Qualitative Research

In addition to research transcription, Athreon provides translation services. We can translate from Spanish, Chinese, German, French, Portuguese, and many other languages to English. Our on-demand translation services mean you can conveniently centralize all your qualitative research transcription and translation projects with Athreon.

Athreon will work with everyone from the IRB to the research support staff to assess and improve quality. We understand that universities depend on the transcripts we produce to support publishable research.

Athreon works tirelessly to deliver best-in-class accuracy to drive high-quality outputs. We leverage concurrent and retrospective reviews, QA reporting, and independent QA analysis.
