Shertalk dictates the future for busy lawyers

Shertalk dictates the future for busy lawyers Shergroup is proud to announce the launch of its latest innovation - a new digital dictation service that has been developed for time-strapped lawyers, harnessing the power of the web to cut their costs and enhance their productivity.

Entitled 'Shertalk', the new system enables clients to upload their dictations to a dedicated website and retrieve them once they have been transcribed. Dictation files that could be uploaded and transcribed in this way include legal letters, court transcripts, reports or client correspondence.

Shergroup Chief Executive Claire Sandbrook explained the reasons behind the development and rolling out of Shertalk:

"Most people can dictate at least seven times faster than they can type, so it makes economic sense to use a transcription service which will help them concentrate on their core tasks with greater competency.

"Clients can even send us their own templates and tell our team exactly how they like things done - it's just like having their own secretary in the office. Even those who prefer the old days of shorthand, golfball typewriters and mini-cassettes will easily adapt to this new system."

Shertalk clients will be able to use a digital Dictaphone linked up to a PC with an Internet connection to dictate the items they need transcribing. After creating an account at, they will be able to upload their files and await a message advising them to log in and download their documents when they have been transcribed, which will happen within 12 hours.

Claire said: "Transcription operatives at Shertalk are professionals with excellent knowledge of legal terminology and methodology, with three levels of quality assurance. By using our service, our clients can benefit from a reduced file backlog, enhanced productivity and secure data storage - 24 hours a day, seven days a week."

Clients can also manage their documents online for up to 90 days - checking on their progress, prioritising urgent work and revisiting completed files. The Shertalk website is fully secured and managed to the quality standards of ISO 27001.

Claire added: "Those who don't have a digital Dictaphone can download an app for their smartphone which does the same job. Alternatively, they can read their script over the phone and it will be recorded for transcription. If that's not an option, they can contact us to see if we have a solution for them."

A free trial is on offer to prospective Shertalk clients, where they upload five minutes worth of dictation to be transcribed. If they are happy with the service, they will be able to set up their account to pay at the end of each month, or on a pay-as-you-go system at £1 per minute.

Shertalk is simple, effective and affordable - it's the ideal tool for busy people in today's fast-paced world, whether people don't have secretarial support or whether their assistant is absent or simply snowed under.
