and edits are made by our staff to make the transcript more
readable. These changes include the removal of stuttering, partial
words, and ahs and ums. The substance/content of the audio is

portions. Double words are removed. However, all grammatical
errors are left as is. We do not change the substance of the
conversation, content, etc.

option, we take clean verbatim to another level. We edit the
content of the document for clarity. This means that we fix
grammatical errors and if someone repeats the same phrase over
and over, we include it only once. Once again, we do not change
the substance or the meaning of the content. We clarify the
non-essential parts of the conversation, content, etc. and make
it readable and flowing. This format is often used for focus
