    Transcription / 97 WPM / Excellent/ Reliable / Rate Per Audio Hr.

    United States - Last active: 20 days ago - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 20

    Objective: To provide 100% accurate transcriptions of audio/video in a timely manner (the time frame to be decided by the client). I follow whatever style guide the client selects. My profile hourly rate is per audio/video hour, not per labor hour. I have recently raised my rate from $75 per hour to $100 per hour when comparing what work I typically do to what TranscriptionWing charges for similar work. Using their calculator at http://www.transcriptionwing.com/price.html, for 60 minutes of good quality audio with no accents and identifying speakers, they estimate $107.40 for delivery in 5 business days. Typically I deliver transcripts for audio with foreign accents and audio challenges within one day for 60 minutes of audio. Their estimated price for comparable work is $209.40. So my current rate is quite a bargain especially when you consider that I give specialized attention to every client, tailoring the transcript to their specifications instead of using a standard catch-all format that some companies use. Raising my previous rate of $1.25 per audio minute to my current rate of $1.67 per audio minute is still a bargain compared to CastingWords.com. CastingWords charges $2.50 per minute for a 1 day TAT, $1.50 per minute for a 6 day TAT, and $1.00 per minute as their budget rate. I normally have a 1 day or less TAT for good quality audio/video lengths of up to 2 hours (American accents), as either strict verbatim or slightly edited verbatim, completely proofread, delivered in .doc format. I am willing to negotiate for specific assignments, however. My current AWPM is 97 with 99% accuracy. I currently transcribe at around 4 minutes per audio/video minute for good quality audio/video. I am excellent with details, and I thrive in work where accurately attending to details is highly valued. I am steadily working towards my goal of 260 WPM with 100% accuracy. I want to perfect my transcription skills, meaning to transcribe the final copy of an audio/video in real time. The industry standard is one hour per 15 minutes of audio. So my goal is to transcribe 15 minutes of audio/video in 15 minutes flat, with 100% accuracy (correct formatting, spelling, grammar, punctuation). I am a native speaker of American English and transcribe with American spellings. I use _The Oxford Guide to World English_ to help me with other accents. While working for CastingWords, I transcribed British, Australian, and some other world accents. I am familiar with speakers from India. I can transcribe audio with multiple speakers, as I had done for CastingWords. I have specialized knowledge in the Internet marketing, music, mathematics, and education fields. I also have great knowledge of the King James Version of the Bible. In the near future, I plan to earn a degree in Medical Transcription and earn the title of Certified Medical Transcriptionist. Besides my specialties, I have a wide range of knowledge over many subjects, from sciences to computer technology and video games, and many others. I have good skills in researching unknown terms, and I love to learn new things everyday.

    Jamaica - Last active: 24 days ago - Tests: 3

    I am detail oriented, highly organised and focused. I am driven, so I work well without supervision and I am very attentive to deadlines and targets. Having a science background, I have an eye for detail, which I am confident will lend itself greatly to projects I acquire in the future. In previous employment I was entrusted with the responsibility of inventory management, and as a result of the calibre of work I produced, I was dubbed employee of the quarter as well as employee of the year. I hold a university degree in Biochemistry and graduated with honours, where I also used the opportunity to explore other disciplines from faculties outside of my area of study, which makes me a well-rounded individual. My organisational and multi-tasking skills have been proven, and I have excellent oral and written communication skills. These coupled with my passion for the english language, make me an excellent candidate for a host of jobs and projects to come. I look forward to being a productive oDesk contributor.
