  • Prakash

    Hi Lashay, thankyou for the information posted above. can you suggest some genuine online data entry jobs site.

  • Hi.

    thank you for this useful jobs,i think each job that you want to start you should have some experience but these are need no experience and each person specially young people like me can do them easily.

    thanks a lot

  • Hanna

    Are the jobs you listed on this site all paid by a monthly basis?

  • Gobind Singh

    hi can i use transcribe.wreally.com website to transcribe files of other sites. is it legit

    • Hi! The website doesn’t sound legit. Where did you find it?

      • Kat

        It’s legit. I’ve used it once or twice. I don’t use it very often because you have to pay to use once the trial session is over. I prefer to use OTranscribe.com when typing transcripts, at least until I find something better to use. But for now it’s the best 100% FREE transcribing site for me.

    • Kristen Pounders

      I use transcribe.wreally.com and it is legit. I love using it

      • Di

        How is it going Kriten, PM’d you on Facebook.

  • zuk

    Hi there, really good info for those yearning for some part-time income, just wondering whether these online jobs could be done by anyone from this side of the globe or mainly from the States or Europe…we’re from the Asian side though..

  • Kat

    Hi Lashay! I just wanted to say thank you for this website and God bless for all you do! I also thank you for sharing this with everyone, it’s absolutely amazing! I recently (about a week ago I believe) signed up with Speechpad.com, I took the qualification tests and passed AFTER my 3rd try by the grace of God. I get my first weeks pay by them tomorrow! I am also with GoTranscript.com (but I’ve been with that company for about a year and a half) and I have to say that GoTranscript is NOTHING compared to Speechpad. Speechpad pays so much better and their rating system is also A LOT better. Anyway, again, thank you so much for sharing! I continue to look through your website for more opportunities almost everyday. Keep up the good work and much love to you! 🙂

    • Hi Kat! You are so welcome! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and sharing your work at home experience. Blessings to you 🙂

    • Zovesta

      Hi Kat! This site looks incredible, and I signed up with them… I passed the Basic, Confidentiality, Grammar, and Verbatim qualifications, and my rating is at 90. I haven’t been waiting long, but it looks like every job requires at least a 92. I’m not sure how to improve my rating without any jobs… should I retake some qualifications, or just wait for a job that only needs a 90? I’d normally just wait a week and see, but I figured I’d ask from someone with experience, first! Thanks so much for sharing. =)

    • Elva Goulbourne

      Hi Kat i take a look at both sites. The GoTranscript one i started and have to leave out but i know i can’t understand some of what the lady is saying sound like another language to me especially some books she called and some names she called. I didn’t finish it so i have to go back and start all over again and try to get everything so i can start making me some money. Then i will move over to the speechpad. Thanks for sharing

  • Fatuma

    Hi lashay, i tried to join this transcription job but before i was done reading the style guide in mistakenly went to the exam section and i wanna go back and read the guide properly. Please help.

    • Hi Fatuma! Which company were you trying to apply with?

  • Natalia Pepenina

    Hi, Lashay!
    Thank you very much for this article – it’s inspirational and very helpful! However, I have one question about the training you provide. Would you like to offer your services for freelancers looking for freelance training job opportunities here? I think this is a great possibility for you to attract more people to your program and for freelancers to learn new things. You’ll be able to make money online as well: this job board has higher hourly rates than other ones and is commission-free!

  • Yua Relampagos (Yud)

    I’ve been transcribing for 5 years. I recommend Scribie and the only requirement is a verified paypal account and they also accept beginners. Thank me later 🙂 https://scribie.com/freelance-transcription?rc=81e2ff09bf0c420eaee6a69c6aa702f1bc37c43a#intro

    Hi Lashay! I want to know that are these companies really give money for transcription

    • Hi, Krishna! Unfortunately, these sites should only be considered for extra cash. Other transcription jobs that pay more are Allegis Transcription, Tiger Fish, and Transcription Team.
