Rev.com, Athreon.com, TigerFish.com and Indeed.com provide at-home transcription jobs as of 2015. These sites give the worker tasks requiring him to listen to audio and type the words. All that the worker needs is a computer and Internet access.
Rev.com requires the worker to register and take a test to gauge his proficiency to transcribe audio. He then gets access to a list of projects from which he can pick and choose. Workers are paid every week for approved jobs and receive feedback from clients on completed tasks.
Freelancers can also find transcription jobs on Athreon.com in various specialties that include medical transcription, legal transcription, law enforcement transcription and media transcription. The company offers dedicated staff to assist workers working remotely. Workers have the flexibility to work on as many projects as possible by creating their own schedule. However, the worker has to submit all tasks before set deadlines.
Indeed.com acts as a platform where freelancers and employers meet. Employers post their transcription projects, and freelancers apply to these projects. A freelancer can modify the list of projects by the date posted, salary estimate, company, location and job type. Freelancers can read reviews left behind by previous workers before choosing a project.
