Default Transcriber ($10/hr)

Scribie.com offers a great opportunity to augment your income with an homebased online transcription job. You can enroll with us as a freelance transcriber and get paid on an hourly basis. Once approved you can login to your Scribie.com account anytime and select files which are available for transcription and/or review. We never assign files to you; instead you are asked to select a file from the list of available files. The files are around 6 minutes or shorter and you can check the quality before selecting. For each file completed your account will be credited with the amount applicable (eg. for a 6 minute file $1 will be credited). The earnings can be withdrawn to your PayPal account anytime. There are no monthly commitments, obligations or minimum withdrawal limits. Payments are made promptly and you can also delete your account anytime you wish to.

If you are an experienced transcriber and have unused time on your hands then Scribie.com can help you to fill that up. If you are starting your career as a transcriptionist then you can gain valuable experience and hone your skills on Scribie.com.

We have transcribed more than 121,098.37 minutes of audio to date and have paid out around $35,636.66 to our transcribers and reviewers.

* Good comprehension of English
* A verified PayPal account (linked to a bank account or credit card)
* Own computer and internet connection
* Good quality headset
* Either Firefox, Chrome or Safari web browser
* Latest version of Adobe Flash Player for your web browser

Transcription Process

Our transcription process consists of three steps; Raw Transcription, Review and Verification. In Raw Transcription the audio is transcribed and incomprehensible parts marked with blanks. During Review the Raw Transcript is corrected and timestamps and speaker initials are added. Reviews are proofread and the final transcript is prepared during Verification. A detailed description of our process is available here:

https://scribie.com/audio-transcription-service#process

Payments

We pay $10 per audio hour for Raw Transcription and Reviews. The earnings are credited to your Scribie.com account once your submission is reviewed and it accumulates there. It can be withdrawn to your PayPal account anytime. You can use any PayPal account as long as it is verified and not in use already. We do not support any other payment methods currently.

A verified PayPal account requires the PayPal account to be linked with a bank account or credit card. Please check the PayPal FAQ on how to get your PayPal account verified.

Approval Process

Your application will be reviewed after itís submitted and we will be either accept or reject it. If accepted you will be added to the waiting list for transcription test. An invite for the test will be sent to your email address once we have test files available for you. After you submit the test file it will be reviewed and evaluated against our guidelines. If found satisfactory you will be approved as a transcriber (and paid for the test file). If not, we will provide you the reviewed file so that you can compare it with yours and check the mistakes.

After approval you may be promoted to Reviewer if your Raw Transcripts are consistently rated as Good or Excellent by our reviewers. After some number of reviews you will be able to review your own Raw Transcript submissions and effectively double your pay rate. You can also refer your friends and colleagues and earn a 5% commission on their earnings after approval.

If rejected you can re-take the test anytime. The maximum number of attempts for the test is 10. You can also defer your test indefinitely and take it at a later date if you wish.

You do not have to pay any fee for the test; itís free.

This is $10 per audio hour, not per work hour.

If it takes someone four hours to type one hour of audio, the hourly work rate will be $2.50.

Lightbulb skip scribie go to speechink

Scribie like casting words has become a rip off; they expect 98% accuracy; multiple speakers and pay Disney rates for transcription that basically requires a college education to complete sufficiently.

There is another option that has not compromised itself completely, though it is not lucrative and doesn't sum up to a lot, it works for those in between contract jobs, and that's Speechink.

Like Casting words, they are Amazon Turk affiliated, so you need to get an Amazon Turk account to begin working with them; at least I had a turk (Mturk) number. And it is easy and free. The website for more info is speechink dot com slash transcribers
Good luck or better yet, more $$, less luck!
