Why is being a transcriber ideal for stay-at-home parents?
Being a parent in itself is a lot of work. And sometimes it’s easy to get overwhelmed while taking care of kids and struggle to find a work-at-home job. But with the work-at-home opportunity as a transcriber, this is both easy and possible!
Read on the perks of being a Transcriber all the while making extra money for your family — and staying home with your kids.
Easy to start
The requirements for starting off as a Transcriber is minimal. According to Legalproofs.com, the basic requirements include excellent listening skills and a good grasp of English spelling and grammar and should be comfortable using computers to do their job. Most transcriber jobs even help you to start off with the basics so you can learn your way up to being an expert.
Develop a skill
Transcribing is not just typing fast. It involves developing skills as you learn about the software used for transcription, transcription-specific rules like how to write numbers, or shortcuts, learning how to time code, verbatim, and so on. You will even be able to work with different accents.
You can easily work for just one company, or take on work with the others when you have some extra free time. However, different companies can have very different formatting guidelines, and you may have to juggle to keep them straight. That being the case, with Legalproofs, you have a consistent flow of work with just one client and formatting style so you can focus on just one instead of constantly switching back and forth between formats.
If you are planning to become a transcriber, be it full-time or part-time, like any other job, it is work. You will spend time sitting in one place and concentrating on topics. But all this is absolutely worth it as it will make an average of $600-$1500 a month, and that is only working during your kid’s nap time four or five days a week!
Work during nap times
The best part of working from home as a transcriber for single parents is that they can take care of their kids and make money at the same time. That way, you have the rest of the day to play with your child, finish your chores and even on some occasions pick up an extra assignment to work on in the afternoon or evening.
