What is Transcription Work From Home?
Transcription is the process of taking audio files and turning them into a written form. It requires you to be a fast and accurate typist. Sometimes these audio files could be something as simple as voicemails or conference calls. Sometimes the more complicated files might be medical files or legal proceedings.
Transcription careers have been around a long time but years ago they were all in-office positions. Once people started using home computers transcription jobs were sometimes remote but usually employees were still required to come into the office every day to pick up their work load to take home to transcribe. These days so many of the transcription work from home positions are completely remote and can be done from anywhere with the files being sent to you over the internet.

Some of the general transcription companies hire people without experience, a few of them are mentioned above but many of these companies especially the more specialized ones require some training or previous experience in transcription. There are a lot of courses and programs out there to teach you transcription if you have no experience but many of these are scams or just don’t have very good reviews from previous customers. The only one I usually recommend for those looking to start a transcription career is Transcribe Anywhere. They offer a free mini-course for those interested. They also have a legal transcription free mini-course for those interested in specializing in that, it is even higher in demand.
