    General Transcription

    United States - Last active: 6 months ago - Tests: 4

    I am a freelance transcriptionist, and I've been working primarily for Babbletype (a company that contacted me through oDesk) since late 2011. My combination of wide-ranging interests and fluency in both written and spoken English have provided me with a natural talent for general transcription. I am a voracious learner and a dedicated researcher, and I am powerfully committed to the quality of my product as a matter of both conscience and pride. With a typing speed of over 60 wpm, I can reliably transcribe ten to twenty audio minutes per hour, depending on the quality of the audio. My highest educational achievement is the biotech certificate I earned from a community college.
