    Excellent transcriptionist with broadsheet writing background

    Philippines - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 3

    I have been working as a transcriber here in oDesk since January 2012. But I would say I had experience transcribing my own interviews before when I wrote for the student paper in high school and for a national broadsheet for 6 months in 2002-2003. I am aware that I am not the fastest typist. My result for a typing test before was 45 wpm. But I give much importance to grammar, accuracy and deadline. My free version of Express Scribe has lapsed and I can't buy the full version yet so I can't do Indonesian, Russian and Middle Eastern accents at the moment. Real clients love my work. I get excellent feedback from real clients.
