      Can i get video captioning sites too

    7. Karina

      Hi Lashay,

      Great site! I notice each transcription company want different things when doing their tests. Could people share, please, what do for each company? For example, does TranscribeMe want clean of full verbatim? Space or tab after each speaker (bolded)? It gets confusing… and some of us need to find work urgently 😉 A little help please (no cheating)?

      Hi Lashay:
      I really do love the videos on YouTube. You are very good at explaining too. Do you know of any company hiring for proofreading. I am almost finished with my course at proofreadanywhere and I was wondering if you know of any jobs that exist for that. Let me know. I’ll really appreciate that

        1. Toni Atkins

          Hey Lashay, data entry jobs they have online, i just want to know are they legit? The ones telling you, let me see if we have a slot available,or you only have limit of time. Then they say look at a video. Are their any legit Data Entry Jobs?

        Hi Lisa, I was wondering how you liked the proofreadanywhere course? Have you found work? Would you recommend?

    12. Lashay H.

      Go Transcript is another legit transcription site. Thanks for sharing!

    13. Krishn a

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

      1. Lashay H.

        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.

      1. Lashay H.

        Awesome! Thanks for sharing!

    14. Linda Hernandez

      I ran across this when searching for online typing jobs..I have over 20 years experience in medical typing ..am looking for PT daytime work..do u know of any legit companies hiring..if the jobs works out maybe i can do FT?? thanx

    15. 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!

    16. 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.

      1. Lashay H.

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

    17. 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! 🙂

      1. Lashay H.

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

      2. 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. =)

      3. 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

      4. sumiyya

        Hello can you please help me in transcription?

    18. 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..

    19. Gobind Singh

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

      1. Lashay H.

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

        1. 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.

      2. Kristen Pounders

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

        1. Di

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

        2. Judith

          The site I was trying to register on didn’t accept my ‘gmail’ email address. It’s says it’s not valid. Help.

          1. Lashay

            Hi Judith! Which website are you referring to?

    20. Hanna

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

    21. Mohammad
