      Since I wanted to earn extra money I figured I’d apply here at Scribie.com and this website offers audios for transcription and transcription jobs. It seemed really legit because you’d have to apply for a test first, take the online test and wait for the results in less than 24 hours, and confirm your account if you’d like to work as a transcriber for them. I had passed the test and I was feeling pretty happy but when I looked at the rate they were paying me, it really was not worth it. I had given all effort but they didn’t seem to compensate the transcribers that much. I have no hatred with

      people who have strong accents but sometimes the words are literally gibberish and garbled, and even the reviewers at the website seem to agree with that when you compare and see your results after they review and pay you. I don’t really want to work for this site anymore and the good news was there was no minimum cashout fee, the bad news was that there was a 2% fee for payouts less than $30 but I seriously doubt I would even reach $5. They pay you $1 for every 6-minute transcription job but I swear that will take you about 45 minutes (they give you a maximum of 2 hours for the ...

      • 6-minute work to be complete, so imagine they have that enough time, seems it’s really difficult trying to rewind and understand the garbled paragraphs) but to have $1 to having to listen for let’s say an hour? It’s not worth it, so not worth it.

        They have a referral commission thing going on here if someone signs up with your link but I think they are doing it incorrectly because that way, the transcribers won’t be working and only posting links everywhere, and the way I see it, there’s a hundred jobs waiting at the list where no transcriber would want to review them because they all suck and it’s all just full

        of garbled words. I only did the test just to pass and see if the test was harder than the transcribing work but it’s all the same and I don’t really want to stress myself out and think and guess what that person with the thickest accent and wrong grammar said, so no it’s not worth it.

        At first this job seemed like a very interesting online job that you’ll be able to get a little extra income, but with all the trouble that you’ll be experiencing, it’s not worth it. I won’t even recommend it to friends and family, just stick to blogging and writing reviews, this is more worth it, trust me.

    I offer this opinion merely for those who are looking to earn extra income doing transcription work from home. Please note this is only my opinion - take what you feel is valuable and toss the rest aside. I agree with the comment that Scribie may be a good vehicle for those who are just starting out as it provides the opportunity to try your hand at transcription. That being said, if you have experience or are looking to earn what I consider at least fair compensation, this is NOT the company for you. Express Scribe (through NCH) is a fantastic program that can be used in most instances, regardless of what company you are transcribing for but it is NOT entirely free. The features on the free version are quite limited and I would recommend just paying the one-time cost (approximately $ 29.99 for the Pro version). If you are new to transcription, I would advise you not to get caught up in all of the available programs NCH offers just stick to the transcriber. You will also need to buy a Wave Pedal (you can purchase a decent used one from Amazon for $ 19.99) and you must have a reliable, fairly up-to-date computer as well as a software program such as Microsoft Word. On a final note, if you decide you enjoy this type of work it can be a great way to earn some extra money. Be aware that in my experience the only way you will be able to make a living as a subcontractor for an on-line company (as opposed to being an actual employee with taxes taken from your paycheck, etc.) is to be extremely adept. You are paid per how much you produce and if you are spending time looking up the spelling of medical or other terms/words, you are going to have a very difficult time making money. Furthermore, to be honest, I have yet to find an on-line company that pays subcontractors a decent amount (at LEAST .007/line). That doesn t mean they do not exist, I just have yet to come across one. As an example of what to expect if you go down this avenue, I have 30 years of experience working full-time in an office as a legal secretary while performing medical/general transcription from home. My typing speed is in excess of 140 words per minute. I would estimate I average between $ 15.00 and $ 19.00 per hour IF the dictation is clear AND if I m working as an employee. All that being said, if you are fortunate enough to secure work on your own, such as directly typing for individuals/companies, you can make a nice income. I charge .14 per line based on a 60-character line and have a handful of clients. They are happy to pay me what I charge (I easily earn between $ 25.00 and $ 50.00 an hour) because I provide a turn-around time (TAT) of 24 hours or less and my work product is excellent (grammar, spelling, etc.). Please don t infer that I am discouraging ANYONE from pursuing this field - I am merely offering some information which may be helpful in making that decision.

    I did not take the transcription exam. I only transcribed their practice exams. Being American, I am experienced in American English. Their practice exams are not punctuated the way I have been taught as correct my entire life. They do not use commas nor do they separate sentences the way I have always done. They are apparently from India, even though they have posted a California address on their website.

    There would be no point in my taking their transcription exam, as my punctuation and sentence structure would never match theirs. I am wondering whether any others out there feel the same way about their grammar.

    I agree with Lorie , I am down to my last 4 attempts and as I reviewed my other attempts I saw a pattern as I am an American the people grading the test seem to think that it’s wrong to capitalize the name of cities.They do not see punctuation in the way the we were taught. I also transcribed a test file withe the name of a band and I guess the grader didn’t know that and there is no way to try to appeal or explain the reason for your capitalization versus theirs . I think I am just going to continue to write freelance work or I would suggest finding WFH with RateRaceRebellion.com

    I agree. The pay is so low. I don’t think it’s worth all the trouble.

    This company is a predator. They only pay $ 1.00 for each 6-minute audio which takes up to 45 minutes to an hour or more to transcribe then take their time giving the promised promotion that is supposed to enable you to earn more money. They charge 2% fee for withdrawing earnings less than $ 30. Their customers pay $ .80 to $ 2.00 for audio transcriptions, depending on the quality and difficulty. And they charge the transcriptionist 2% for withdrawing monies earned less than $ 30.00. You do the work while they get the benefit of your efforts.

    There is no doubt that they are paying very little for transcribing job. And, that is the one reason why they have lost the plot. The number of customers being served by them has reduced. The quality has also suffered. If you pay peanuts, you should be ready to accept monkeys working for you.
