Work at home transcription companies hiring. If you want to venture into the transcription industry, I have a list of 30 transcription companies hiring now. These are the best general transcription companies to work for this year. Transcription sites that pay wellAre you looking for work from home transcription companies that will allow you to make money online?

I have a list of the best transcription companies to work for in 2018, and the best part is that they are hiring worldwide.

A good number offer general transcription jobs for beginners but others need experience.

Transcription Training

But, before I give you the list, I would like to recommend a really awesome Free 7-Lesson Mini Course that is suitable for work from home typists just like you. It will get you on the right track and shorten your learning curve. So, check it out at Transcribe Anywhere.

Transcription Requirements

When applying to these companies, each one will have their own set requirements. Among them is having a computer in good working condition, high-speed internet connection, a high quality noise-cancelling headset, Express Scribe Pro Software and a Foot Pedal.

The pedal is optional, especially for beginners, but if you have some experience, I would encourage you to get one. You will type faster and have an awesome transcription experience. A bundle of a headset, foot pedal and express scribe pro software goes for $100 or less over at Amazon.
