What Kind of Work Is it?

TranscribeMe provides transcription, translation, and captioning services to clients all over the world. Most workers join the Company as transcribers. TranscribeMe offers a relatively easy entrance ideal for first-time at-home workers. You will need a computer, a good headset, (ideally) a foot pedal for audio control, and a good internet connection, along with good typing and listening skills, but no degree or work experience is necessary. You will register, take a test and training session, and begin working.

TranscribeMe is notable for providing many short audio clips, many only seconds long, allowing you to break off work in manageable pieces, an ideal situation for a person with blocks of free time throughout the day. You are expected to complete 50 jobs a month, but this is very much achievable. You simply log in, download clips, and start transcribing, whether you do one in a session or 20 or more! Work is available 24/7, as much or as little as you like.

TranscribeMe is known for offering an intuitive and simple interface, with the style guide displayed on the right of the screen as you type, and transcribers report that most of the audio files are of good quality. The Company gets high marks for employee support, which includes having shift leads and managers available to answer questions and offering a lively message forum where employees talk to each other and offer advice and tips.

TranscribeMe pays $20 per audio hour, meaning the length of the audio clip, not the time you spend transcribing it. In the beginning, earnings may not be high, but once you master the process, your output will increase dramatically. TranscribeMe is also known for advancement potential, offering higher wages and better deals to transcribers who consistently submit quality work and pass a series of tests. Transcribers with medical or legal knowledge or training in specialized transcription will get higher pay.
