Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, each potential contractor must pass a thorough federal, state and county background check. Some opportunities may require a 10-year employment check, as well as a drug screening.

As an independent contractor, you make your own schedule. We have contractors that work the equivalent of full-time, as well as those that work consistently on a “part-time” basis. Some of our transcription opportunities work best with full-time availability, and precedence will be given to applicants that are able to process, on average, 60 minutes a day, 5 days a week.

Our proprietary, secure database monitors transcription activity. A contractor  may be locked out of the system if there is a long period of inactivity.

Your application will be reviewed, and should you qualify, you will be sent an Overview document with details regarding the opportunity, pay rates, what to expect and how to proceed.  Please add to your email “safelist” to ensure you don’t miss the email.

Even if you are an experienced editor/transcriptionist, our clients require unique and specific styles of verbatim transcription. For that reason, all our prospective transcription contractors must successfully complete an assessment prior to accessing our clients’ orders.

During the assessment, we will explain our transcription platform and client specifications. We will use practice transcripts to ensure contractors will meet client specifications and our own accuracy guarantees.

Contracts will be extended to editors/transcriptionists based on:

  • The quality/accuracy of your practice transcripts.
  • The ability to meet deadlines during the assessment period.

You will need:

  • a PC with Windows 10
    a good pair of headphones, preferable with noise cancelling technology
  • a foot pedal (an Infinity Foot Pedal is currently required for most assignments).
  • Some opportunities may require the use of transcription software
