If you do have a PDF or tips that will help will you please share with me? I would appreciate it, and thank you for being so helpful.

    Hey Virginia, I found your tips really helpful. I have been training to be a rev video captioner and I’ve grown competent at the same. I however never seem to succeed in making applications that is quite frustrating. How exactly do I make a successful application?

    Hello Virginia, Greetings. I did go through the contents and I am happy that I visited this page. I have an experience of 17+ years in Medical Transcription and presently started my own unit with 15 systems in India. All my medical transcriptionist/QA are with a minimum experience of 5+ years and are quality oriented. Will it be possible to get a client who can offer my company regular volume of on daily basis. With the time difference between India and USA being an advantage, we can work on any shift timings. Could you please refer me any hospital or an agency who can arrange business on a regular basis.

    Hi Virginia

    I’ve been working for Rev since March this year, and a week ago they shut down my account. My stats were good, I was Revver Plus and my customer rating was 4.1 which is why it’s strange that they ‘Couldn’t keep your transcription account open. This is due to your quality being below our acceptable average,’ etc. I’ve consulted with fellow Revvers and apparently this is common for people in regions like Kenya, Nigeria and India. Isn’t that unfair and generalizing?

      Hello SKK,

      Sorry to hear that. Well, Rev has been having issues with transcribers coming from third world countries. Someone leaked information to them that these countries do buy and sell their accounts, which to them is unethical. And so, they are just looking for ways to get rid of as many people as possible. That’s why they are harsh. But, I think shutting down your account like that, considering the good performance and without notice is unfair.

    I wish I had read this before applying to Rev.com. I did not make it the first time and I believe it was due to not reading and adhering to their style guide. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated as I am hoping to succeed on the second try!

    Hi Virginia, I’m trying to get started transcribing from home. I have only tried one test with Rev which was unsuccessful. Not surprising, as I’m a real newbie at the game! However I really enjoyed doing it, and think if I could maybe get the Rev pdf. to get some insight, it will be a great help, along with any other tips you can pass on. Bess you for the work you are doing, and the wonderful patience you show, Shirley.

    Hello mam
    I want to join Rev, but i’m a little bit intimidated? What’s the chance that they can actually hire you?

    I’m scared that i will apply then they will see my IP address and reject me… I’m from Kenya like you.

    1. Virginia Nakitari Post author

      Hello Naomi. You just need to believe in yourself and believe that you can do it. Yes, they do reject some applications, especially from Kenya, but not always. I know a number of people who have Rev accounts and are making money that way. One thing I will warn you, though, is that the company is very strict when it comes to grammar and punctuation. You need to work on that first. I see you’ve written words like “i” and “i’m” in small letters. They always do check for small mistakes like that. But, there are a few guys who can help you with the Rev application. Contact me using the Contact form and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

      Hello Cate. Nice to connect with you. I used to train on transcription but I no longer offer that service. There is a wonderful Facebook group called Awesome Transcribers Kenya Facebook Group that can help you get started. I know a number of transcription trainers who can help you. Let me know if you need more assistance. Regards.

    Hello Virginia could you kindly share on the various designs of transcription you have done. e. g one dealing with timestamps and any other design.

    1. Virginia Nakitari Post author

      Hello Ian. Yes, I can do that but there are various designs that I’ve dealt with. I’ll just be brief and mention that I’ve dealt with one on one recordings, interviews, presentations and timestamps. There are various timestamping requirements. Some clients expect you to insert timestamps after every 2 minutes and otheres prefer after 5 minutes of a recording. Hope that helps.

    Hello Virginia, thanks for the good work you are doing. I have done a Rev test a couple of times but still fail. Do you have an idea how one can pass the test. Please help.

      Hello Stanley,

      So sorry to hear that. Well, I had a PDF sometime back explaining how to go about the Rev test. I’m not sure if Rev changed their test or not. It’s been a while since I last worked with them.
