    Typing speed with 99% accuracy at 65 wpm. I have professional transcription software and a transcription pedal, as well as noise-reduction software and noise-cancelling headphones. I have been working full-time as a transcriptionist for some time now, but my primary provider is lessening their workload, which has left me with free time to pick up side work. I would also consider more permanent arrangements for the right client. I also have some experience with creative and technical writing, and would gladly provide those services as requested. Thank you.
