Excellent listening skills
Footpedals (preferred but not mandatory)
Familiarity with Dropbox
Excellent English grammar skills
Decent typing speed
Ability to finish one audio hour (60 minutes) in 24 hours or less
Familiarity with US and Scottish/Irish accent

You must have Whatsapp or Viber in addition to Skype for communication purposes or else please do not apply.
Contractors are requested to apply only if they can commit and can work long term or else please do not apply and respect each others’ time.
This is an on-call position and every time we get a new lot, we use to pass messages to all our contractors and check their availability and then work is allocated. We only allot after asking the contractors as to how many minutes they can handle in any particular amount of time and don’t force them to work beyond their capacity. So, you can work at your own pace and there is no need to leave your ongoing and current tasks for this job. All that is required is meeting the commitment and submit the allocated volume with good quality on mutually agreed timelines and that is very important.
A lot of times we have faced a situation where contractors use to start the contracts but then they just disappear and don’t even bother to update or reply to messages which leads to TAT loss and other problems to the company, so from this time onwards we will not wait for the contractors and pass messages frequently if they have not submitted the allocated work in given timelines and contracts will be ended straight away. We request you to apply only if you are serious about work and can meet the commitment.
Payment will be 15 cents per audio minute transcribed (i.e. $9/audio hour). You will be paid on audio hour basis and not the actual amount of time (clock time) you will invest in completing the job. All payments will be made via oDesk strictly. Payments will be made weekly and on every Sunday.
There is a short test for the new contractors to check their transcription skills and test file is only 50 seconds long which is attached with this post and you are requested to submit that along with your application.
After selection, all contracts will be started at $100 and we will keep on paying in milestone form in that contract and once $100 is complete, a new contract will be started. This way there is an option for you to get more feedbacks in your oDesk profile.
Final hiring decision will be done by next week and then all contracts will be started.
Agencies/teams/groups are also welcomed.
Newbies are also welcomed.
