Which is better transcriptionist or Captioner?
Captioning files pay a bit more, starting at about 54 cents per minute while transcription files start at about 45 cents per minute. Keep in mind with captions there is an additional syncing step and longer deadlines. If you enjoy straightforward typing, you may prefer transcription.
If you’re not familiar with online transcription and translation services, it’s a simple process. Clients upload audio and video files to Rev, and then those files are sent to you for transcribing or translating. Basically, you’re sitting at your computer (in a distraction free environment) listening, and typing out conversations about things you probably have no interest in. It seems simple enough, but quite often you’re dealing with poor audio quality, hard to understand accents and multiple voices talking over one another. If that's not exactly your skill-level or you have difficulty getting hired, there are other opportunities to make money online.
