Daily Transcription Review
At the moment, they hire freelancers only from U.S and Canada.
As the company name suggests, they provide daily transcription services to the entertainment industry. That’s good news for the beginners as they can get hold of good chunk of work daily.
Let’s look at the earning amount, the basic requirements to apply with them, what kind of work environment you get to work with, legitimacy point, etc.
How much does daily transcription pay?
Daily transcription pays you $.79 – $ 1.10 per audio minute for every audio file transcribed.
As I mention in all my review, per audio minute is not the same to per minute transcribed file.
It varies on the audio file clarity, your typing speed, listening and proofreading skills.
So a typical per audio minute file for average typing skill person could take three to four times longer.
In that case, a $.79 per audio minute will fetch an earnings of approx $11 – $15 per hour.
I heard they pay the current transcribers weekly via PayPal.
What are the requirements at Daily Transcriptions?
There are no mandate software or hardware essentials as such to get started.
However foot pedal and transcription software is recommended for beginners.
