Transcription involves converting spoken audio into a written document. The discussion is in your Regional Language, translate that into English in your words without summarising.
You don't need to have any experience, you just need to have good English skills.
There is no time limit. We will not treat your application differently if you spend less or more than the recommended amount of time (30 minutes) on the application. Please take as much time as you need to complete your application as accurately and thoroughly as possible.
You will hear back within one week. If you are approved, you can start working immediately!
Work as much or as little as you want, whenever you want. You can claim a audio at any time of the day, on every audio time scheduke is given so you can choose according to your comfortability.
We never close accounts due to inactivity - if you need to take a break from working and come back later, we will always be happy to have you back.
Listen carefully to the audio sample and type out the words with minimal errors.
As the spoken word is not always grammatically correct, your transcription should preserve the original speech. Please do not write what you think the speaker meant to say.
Don’t paraphrase, substitute or omit words
Don’t rearrange the order of speech
Don’t correct or edit a speaker’s grammar
Don’t correct pronunciation unless it distracts from readability
Editing for readability
Use your best judgment to edit for readability by omitting content that distracts a reader from the core content.
However, never change the story being told.
Grammar & research
Research proper spellings and capitalizations for essential words, phrases and terminology you may not be familiar with.
Always Google proper spelling of proper nouns and topic-specific vocab (e.g., Instructables, DIY, soldering iron).
If a spelling is not easily researchable, make your best guess using a standard or phonetic spelling of the word.
Spell words consistently throughout the transcript.
Handling difficult audio or words
When you cannot confidently hear or understand a word or phrase, insert a timestamp (mentioning the time of audio where that word is said). Do not just leave it blank or add your own notation (e.g. *unclear audio*)
