Jobs for Transcription Typists

The fast-growing AUDIO TRANSCRIPTION CENTER needs transcriptionists to convert recorded material into text format at our offices in Boston.

  2. Work as an off-site independent contractor (often described as a home typist or freelance transcriber).

Job Requirements/Qualifications

  1. 75-80 wpm minimum typing speed with prior transcription experience preferred.
  2. You must possess a keen listening ability, as well as superior grammar, vocabulary and punctuation skills.
  3. Our successful candidates have a natural curiosity towards all aspects of culture, history, the arts, and politics reflecting a wide range of knowledge. This is what sets us apart from other transcribing services.
  4. Transcribers with fluent bilingual or multilingual skills are always welcome.
