However, this company mostly deals in the area of financial transcription.


You can expect that you may be transcribing:


Conference Calls


Meeting transcripts


Interviews


and


Presentations



The requirements to work for Accutran Global include:


 1. Taking an online application and skills test.

2. A typing speed of at least 70 words per minute.

The company doesn't guarantee work outside of its earnings seasons. However, there may be plenty of work available during those specific periods.


They do advise that there are deadlines to be met, so it may not be suitable for you if you are looking for a flexible schedule, as the work must be done immediately upon receipt.


Other supplies that you may need include:


High speed Internet


A Telephone Headset


and

A Transcription Machine


Buying these items can be pricey. However, there are ways to buy these items at a lower cost but it may take some investigation on your part.

One of the best places to check before you hit places like Office Depot and Best Buy is eBay.






Another item that transcription companies will require is called a foot pedal.



With a foot pedal, you are able to start, stop and rewind audio that you are transcribing with just a tap of your foot! It is very easy to use and it's help to you will literally be priceless.



A foot pedal eliminates the issue of having to take the time to stop your tape player or cd player every 10-20 seconds to accurately transcribe what you are hearing .  All you do is tap your foot to rewind the audio (it becomes second nature when you start transcribing).  I used to work in transcription and I can tell you that this item is really handy if you want to get really fast at transcribing.

Remember speed= more money per hour


In my estimation, not having a foot pedal will double the time it takes you to complete a transcription job.


Of course seasoned transcribers may find that they can keep up easily with the audio without having to use a foot pedal, but if you are just starting out, it may prove an invaluable tool for you and as I stated above, many transcription companies are now requiring that you obtain a foot pedal in order to work for them.
