Placing and Receiving Rev Caption Orders Using Dropbox

Rev’s Dropbox integration will save you time by allowing you to place and receive orders via Dropbox, eliminating the need to visit Instead, you’ll interact with Rev via two Dropbox folders:  

  • One folder places a caption order with Rev whenever a file is dragged into it
  • One folder receives completed caption files

Orders placed via the Dropbox integration also receive per-second pricing rather than rounding up to the nearest dollar. For example, a 1.5 minute video costs $1.50 via the Dropbox integration and $2.00 when ordered on

In addition, if you are going to place several orders using these folders, you may want to get setup with monthly invoicing. If you use monthly invoicing, this will eliminate receiving a separate charge on your credit card each time you place an order using the folders. To get setup with monthly invoicing, please click here.

 NOTE: Only files that are less than 1GB will work with these folders. Anything over 1GB, please submit through your Rev account.

To get started, just fill out the form below. There are no charges to use the Dropbox integration. Any questions? Email

Dropbox Caption Form

Once you have filled out the above form, we will set up your two Dropbox folders and then send you two emails. One will be for you to accept the folder that we are sharing with you into your Dropbox account and the other email will be a 'Getting Started'. You will then be ready to start using Dropbox to send/receive your caption orders.

Please follow the instructions below regarding placing and receiving your transcription orders through Dropbox.

1) Sending a file for captioning

Go to the login page for Dropbox and log into your account.

2) Locate the folder that Rev created and shared with you.

Once you are logged in to your Dropbox account, you will be on the Home Page. Find the folder that is labelled, Rev - (your email). This folder contains subfolders you will use to send and receive your caption orders from Rev. Put your cursor over the folder and click to open it.


3) Sending a file for caption

When you have opened your Rev folder, you will see two subfolders. The one labelled, 'Send - Rev Caption - (your email)', is the one you will use for uploading and sending your file to Rev. Click on this subfolder to open.

4) Upload your file

Once you are in the 'Send' folder, there are two ways to upload a file to this folder. One, click on 'Upload Files' which is on the far right.  This will open up a window to where you can search for the file you want to upload. When you have located the file and clicked on it, your upload will begin. Or, you can locate the file on your computer and drag it into the 'Send' folder in Dropbox.

Once you have completed the above steps, you will receive an email confirmation from Rev.


Receiving your completed transcript from Rev

Once your file has been captioned, you will receive an email notification from Rev.
