Dialogue Lists

Dialogue Lists Transcription Services

Dialogue lists can be created for full-length feature film and television series as part of our post-production transcription services. Why do you need a dialogue list? Dialogue lists provide an excellent basis for other services needed down the road, such as captioning and subtitling.

Dialogue lists provide you with all recorded dialogue. Unlike as-broadcast scripts, dialogue lists are sometimes created before the script is finalized, as story editors, writers, and directors may wish to check the flow of dialogue between characters.

Dialogue lists may include the following:

  • Verbatim dialogue
  • All utterances
  • Character IDs
  • Voice-Overs
  • Time code
  • Chyrons

Daily Transcription offers the following formats of Dialogue list scripts.
