When did you get into transcription?
My work experience has always involved some sort of transcription work, primarily in the Legal field – I’m a natural typist with a knack for comprehension!
However, when I saw an opportunity advertised with TranscribeMe, I thought it would be a great way to be able to work my way into working from home full-time, rather than going to an every day job outside of home. Now in my transcription career so far, I have transcribed close to 60 hours of audio across all industry segments that TranscribeMe services, and am able to spend lots of time with my family.
What does your typical work environment look like, and what else do you like to do?
I primarily do my work from my lounge room (living room) on my laptop – it’s great to have that comfort factor. Sometimes, I also like to take my laptop outside and work on my back deck on a nice day for fresh air and sunshine.
When I’m not transcribing, I am generally looking after my wonderful daughters. In my spare time — not that there is much of it — I like to read, play video games and watch movies.
What’s your favorite achievement as a transcriber so far?
The most interesting transcription project or achievement so far was when I was transcribing a University history lecture about Ancient Greece and Turkey, and it was actually about places that I had been and things that I learned about when I was there!
It was really fun to be involved in that way, on that level.
What is your favorite part about being a part of TranscribeMe?
I love the freedom TranscribeMe gives to work from anywhere, at anytime (as long as I have an internet connection!). It is so great that I can earn money while being at home with my family to support them any way that I can.
