Online transcription jobs are interesting and relatively easy to understand for most online workers.

However, there are a few challenges that transcribers face. Among these is the fact that it may be difficult to get jobs on bidding sites. Other non-bidding sites have so many unreasonable requirements that some people just give up.

Great news for transcribers! GoTranscript is hiring. Read more about it and apply now.

What is online transcription?

Online transcription is simply converting audio to text, while sourcing and delivering the work through the internet. You listen to a piece of audio then type it out in a specified format.

You need to understand how to deal with inaudibles, false starts, stuttering, time stamps, formats among other aspects. However, if you’ve never transcribed before, it will not take you much effort to learn about it.

What is GoTranscript?

GoTranscript, formerly SpeechToTextService is an online transcription service. It has been around for over 10 years, providing reputable services to big organizations such as BBC and Netflix.

Payment for your transcription service

GoTranscript pays between $0.21 and $0.60 per audio minute. This translates to $12.6 to $36 per audio hour. According to the site, top transcribers earn up to $1,215 per month.

It pays via PayPal or Payoneer every weekend on Saturday.

Payments are not automatic, you need to send a PayPal invoice. Indicate your username on the note.

GoTranscript Transcription Formats

The site has both full verbatim and clean verbatim jobs. It is important to make sure you understand how to do both transcription formats.

If you’re totally new to transcription, you can first practice both methods and try them out. In fact, GoTranscript gives you some samples that you can check to see how both methods are done.

Check out the samples, see how it’s done, then try to transcribe both in full and in clean verbatim. Once you’re confident enough about your skill, go ahead and apply.
