Just as it is key in having a computer, a pair of headsets and good internet connection, it is vitally important to find the right transcription softwares to go with it. Many transcriptionists will agree with me that having an easy-to-use transcription software like Express Scribe increases productivity and reduces the amount of time spent on producing a client-ready transcript. Listed below are really great tools/softwares that you can download right now and start using as soon as today. Choose what you like, test them out and pick one that makes your work easier. 

Have you ever recorded an audio or video recording and got frustrated because it didn’t match up to your expectations? Either because the volume was low, you had disturbing background noises or the participant voices were totally distorted? Well, this is a common occurrence but the good news is that it can be avoided.

As an experienced transcription specialist you can advice your clients to follow these recording secrets. Believe me, they will thank you for it and will even bring more business your way.

Do you spend hours and hours on the internet searching for transcription clients without success? Have you come across companies claiming to offer transcription projects for a fee leaving you frustrated and discouraged?

Well, if you have you are not alone. Many skilled transcriptionists (me included) have gone through that same ordeal at some point in our lives.  But, you do not have to because I have put together a list of legitimate sites that have real work and your time will be well compensated for.
