Typewrite Transcription and Typing Services CC is the brainchild of Gaynor Paynter, who always wanted to run her own business. The business has been running since 2005 doing transcription in all sectors of the field including general, medical, legal and academic, and typing services – we’ve typed everything from books to studies to forensic reports!

The company started by offering general secretarial services, back in the days of dial up and costly internet and soon found that transcription was an unmet niche in South Africa and abroad.

With the technological advances it witnessed, the business went from strength to strength and by 2009 it had grown to such a point that it was registered as a close corporation – and by then we had fibre and were permanently connected! In 2009, Gaynor Paynter, together with Alision Fourie of AMF Typing Services, founded TAVASA – the first support forum for VAs and transcribers in South Africa of its kind. Typewrite is is now in its eighteenth year of operation as a close corporation and in keeping with changing technological developments and market requirements has added services such as proofreading, copy-editing, minute-taking, proposal writing, CV writing and preparation of business plans.
