Transcriptionist (Former Employee) – Online – February 25, 2019
Okay, dumb pun. But here's the thing:
If you're smart, and have some kind of audio-voyeuristic thing, then give it a whirl. It's kind of interesting.
What it isn't, though, is a long list; it isn't long-term, it isn't rational, it isn't decent paying, and it isn't fair. I don't mean "fair" in a "Jack and Jill each get a cookie." kind of way, I mean "fair" as in standards and guidelines which are clear and universal.
Your peers are your "graders", and their say is it. The end. The Word of the Rev God will have spoken.
There's a button you can schmash to dispute a grade when it becomes clear that the grader is a moron, but the dispute GOES TO THE GRADER FOR REVIEW. So each time you submit a transcription, it is a roll of the dice whether the person grading your work will be your intellectual equal, or if they will be a mouth-breathing college freshman who is trying to bring in enough pocket change to buy a dime bag.
At $0.32 a word minute, couch cushions are probably a lot more apt to yield...and frankly, the cushions are a lot less frustrating to interact with.
You can pick whatever you want to work on.
Just pick a con that you can think of, and assume it should be on this list.
