The sound bite is the medium used to send content to the crowd of Bite Writers who convert bites to bits and bytes – or in other words, audio to digital text.
This is an exciting new concept in crowd sourcing, it will revolutionize the hybrid computer/human crowd model and it is unique to TranscribeMe. We do not call our crowd ‘transcribers’, we call them Bite Writers and we do that because this crowd is not at home on their computers with their foot pedals. They may not even be on their laptops. Bite writers work from anywhere and everywhere using any number of digital devices and not always the same ones. They do not fit the traditional demographic profile of the mid-aged, female, transcriber although TranscribeMe will retain that pool as well. Bite Writers are the early adopter workforce who are comfortable with technology and open to a new way of doing business.
