Transcription is a simple profession with few requirements and plenty of benefits. Among the prime benefits of a transcription career are the ability to work from home, flexible hours, and the ability to select the amount of work. These benefits make a career in transcription desirable, which means a transcription career can be competitive. Therefore, standing out from other transcriptionists is important in order to succeed.

Most people think all one needs to become a successful transcriptionist are good ears and fast fingers. You do need good ears, and your typing speed will improve, but you also have to be well rounded enough to know to transcribe “Bear Market”, not “Bare Market”. You must be able to recognize the difference between "here" and "hear". Lastly, you must be passionate about providing the highest level of quality and clarity possible to the client.

This course will train you in important transcription skills, such as typing accuracy and speed. By developing these crucial skills, you’ll have a great advantage over other transcriptionists.

Successful transcriptionists need to have the following skills:

  • Attentive listening

  • Typing speed

  • Knowledge of punctuation

  • Patience

  • Responsibility

  • The ability to think critically

  • Comprehensive understanding of grammar and spelling intricacies
