We warmly welcome all of the past customers of the legendary Barbara’s Place Script Typing Service.  We hope to help you in the same way they did!  Relax for a few…. We’ll work on your script while you’re away.

We can give you the pricing. We do transcription…. about $60 an hour — single voice or multiple! We make sure everything is correct and professional, just like all the other stuff we do.  You will get an excellent product with us!

Get a Quote -- Guaranteed Up Front

We’re happy to give you the quote/price beforehand. You would simply email us a photo/image of at least 3 pages so we can see how they are written and the formatting.

Of course, if you can’t send a photo or a copy of the file by email, you can also tell us what format they’re in and we may be able to give you a quote based on that.

When you send them to us for typing, they must be hand-numbered before sending!  Also be sure to keep a copy of them yourself.

We always try to accommodate your needs and requirements.

We look forward to working with you!

To get started, you can give us a shout out the old school way — the telephone — at 818/907-6511! 

Or email us the email address in the footer of this page….

And we’ll, uh, leave the light on for ya!
