    Transcription Jobs

    I've recently been looking into different work from home jobs to help supplement my income. I've found a few companies offering work transcribing audio and video files into a word document - such as Babbletype and Rev.

    After applying to a few and being approved, I have realized that it is actually VERY time-consuming. You get paid per audio minute, so you need to be a very fast typer to be able to earn a decent income. But the frustrating part is when the speaker mumbles and you have to keep going back and re-listening to what they say.

    I definitely don't think it is the type of job for me!

    Do any of you do transcription work? Do you enjoy it?

    There's a lot of transcription jobs out there as well as transcription sites but all the transcription sites I know like Humanatic, TranscribeMe and GoTranscript pays terribly more so the first 2. With GoTranscript its a bit higher though, but all that said, it's still time consuming and fruatrating.

      A month ago I applied to GoTranscript.com but luckily I was not hired. I was so embarrassed that I was not hired because at first I really think that it was the perfect job for me. I have read all their transcription guides and so thought that I would really passed but when I take the actual transcription, it was really time consuming. I listened to the audio over and over again. Actually, at the first minute of the audio is just so clear but as the time goes it becomes more unclear and the speaker seems to be talking nonsense and go elsewhere. It really doesn't matter of what the speaker is talking about, the thing is you have to transcribe the audio. Since I am not that good in English and I can't easily catch-up slang words so I did not passed but it did not affect me anymore. It is just that I have to practice and learn more.
