We are seeking home-based General transcriptionists who have a great attention to detail and are able to work at home with no supervision as an independent contractor. Job duties will include transcribing audio interviews, focus groups, business meetings, conference calls, market research, corporate videos and the like.
FULL JOB DESCRIPTION
General transcription entails listening to the audio file and typing the spoken words. Transcriptionists receive dictation (recordings) from professionals and type them to produce a written document. This depends on the type of transcription required since in verbatim transcription the transcriptionist is required to type word by word including the non-verbal cues used by the speakers. In the intelligent transcription some irrelevant words and errors in speech are over looked while the essential information is typed. Normally a one hour recorded audio file takes about four hours to transcribe. In addition, it is the responsibility of the general transcriptionist to review the transcribed work. This entails reading the typed text against the recorded audio with the aim of identifying any existing errors or discrepancies and rectifying them. Depending also on their level of experience and the field of work, transcriptionists may make corrections, such as fixing grammatical errors in speech. The transcriptionist generally works on deadlines and produces documents quickly and accurately.
We require the following from the transcriptionist
• Must have basic requirements as outlined in the Plan-B transcribers manual.
• Experience in Microsoft Office (MS. Word).
