When uploading cheatsheets, you’re able to submit file instructions or a glossary of terms to our transcript editors. Cheatsheets can be submitted within the order form and applied to all files within an order, or at the folder or project level.



Once you log in to the 3Play Media Account System, you can submit a Cheatsheet that includes file instructions or a glossary of terms for the transcript editor to reference while working on your files.

Cheatsheets can be submitted per each order within the order form, or at the folder or project level. Once submitted, Cheatsheets are delivered to the transcript editor assigned to your transcript and can be easily searchable while editing.

Providing a cheatsheet helps our team caption your content more efficiently and accurately. At 3Play Media, we always guarantee a minimum accuracy rate of 99% on all files, but with a Cheatsheet, you can ensure an even more accurate file.
