We require transcribers to have a strong command of the English language, its syntactical and grammatical rules; to be able to recognize American English accents/speech; and, to have a decent typing speed.
What equipment do I need to get started?
You don’t need any special equipment. What you do need: a reasonable computer with Google Chrome and a reliable internet connection.
How do I get started?
Please register here (http://workhub.transcribeme.com/) and take our Transcriber Training programme. If successful in completion, you will be notified of your account's activation shortly after.
What are the maximum/minimum number of hours I can work?
TranscribeMe does not have a maximum or a minimum number of hours that you have to work. The beauty of our system is that you can work as little, or as much as you want! As long as there is work available on the WorkHub you are free to take it, and you can take a break whenever you want.
What if I’m looking for a part-time or full-time role?
The wonderful thing about TranscribeMe is the amount of time you would like to work. You can work full-time or part-time as long as there are files available.
How much do I get paid?
Transcribers start at $15 USD per audio hour for general transcription with different projects and specializations offering higher rates. Once a transcriber is activated, they immediately have the opportunity to complete further exams that will boost their pay rate and open up further work Please note that this figure (“per audio hour”) pertains to the length of audio transcribed as opposed to the length of time taken to transcribe the audio.
When / how will I get paid?
Transcribers can request payment withdrawals through PayPal weekly.
What other opportunities are available for transcribers?
Transcribers also have the chance to become QA (Quality Assurance) agents, responsible for consolidating, proofreading and editing transcriptions. There are also further specializations, such as special project teams and captioning transcription teams. These other opportunities often entail different, greater, pay scales than our standard transcription rate.
I am already a transcriber/QA with TranscribeMe – where can I find information specific to the actual transcription and QA tasks at hand?
The Transcriber and QA guides can be found on the HelpDesk, in the Knowledge Base resources. You can also submit a Ticket on our HelpDesk for work-related queries.

What is a foot pedal?
