If you can type, you can transcribe. Transcription is the process of listening to an audio recording and typing in what is said. Transcription work can include medical documents, police and legal depositions, and reality TV interviews. Most transcription companies test your typing ability and accuracy and train you on their software. Rev is the most used transcription company but also pays the least, so investigate competitors such as TranscribeMe!, Tigerfish, and Scribie to compare rates or find a transcription service in your area.
Salary/rate: According to ZipRecruiter, entry level transcription jobs pay just under $35,800 per year, but there’s room to go much higher. Keep in mind that services such as Rev, which charge customers $1.50 per audio minute, pay transcribers a fraction of that.
