      Yes, I worked for them. If you were great with online classes in college it’s easy to understand but it was hard for me to get used to the expectations and I had a lot of questions. They say if you are good it should only take about thirty minutes to transcribe most audio but most audio clips are longer than that and it takes longer than they say in the application for the experienced transcriptionists too. It should be higher pay but if you have a lot of free time and need extra cash on the side I would do it for the experience. I am almost unemployed and right out of college so it works for me but definitely not for everybody. You have to be extremely self-disciplined. There are other stay-at-home jobs out there that take up less time, you get more recognition, and maybe a more regular schedule.
