The American Transcription Association (ATA) is a new transcription organization based on two principles:
- Keep transcription work in the United States
- Foster a community among transcriptionists
Founded by Donna Littrell, the ATA’s main purpose is to promote transcription quality over quantity and keep transcription work from going overseas.
The association is just getting starter, but it already has 500 members and an advisory board. In addition, the ATA web site has an active online forum, where transcriptionists are invited to ask questions, give advice and chit-chat with friends and colleagues in the transcription industry.
