When an apprentice starts work he/she has to invest in the tools of the trade and know that they have lots to learn. Transcription is no exception. Just because you can type doesn’t mean you have the skills to become a transcriber. Apart from being able to type, you need to train your ears to hear when people are overtalking. There could be background noise. How do you set up Style Guides and Templates, Glossaries? Beginners Module 1 is excellent value for money. It contains 8 lessons, with 195 minutes of practice audio and Answer Keys to compare your work against, and Sonya and I are to hand if you need any explanations.
By the end of Intermediate Module 2, you will have transcribed 263 minutes of two voice interviews and strengthened the skills gained in Module 1.
Our Advanced Module 3 has multi-voice interviews, focus group style audio, accents, and verbatim audio files to transcribe. Some other online training courses might appear cheaper, as they offer many small bites of the apple, but if you start to add it all together and look at what you’re actually getting for that $15 “lesson”, it’s actually not value for money at all. Plus we are offering lifetime access to the course so that you can come back and refresh your memory as your business grows.
