More about transcribing jobs

The transcriptionist is responsible for transcribing audio/video files into written text. The transcribing job includes editing the transcript to ensure transcription accuracy, proofreading for grammar and spelling, and formatting the transcript to be readable on the web. Medical transcriptionists and legal transcriptionists are the most in-demand transcribing jobs. However, several other profiles include law enforcement transcribers and general transcribers employed by academia and business. Although there is no fixed educational qualification for transcribing jobs, most working professionals have either a bachelor's or an associate degree. In addition, as more and more companies are using AI and Boats to transcribe, the transcribing jobs may decline over time.

Popular Transcribing Jobs and Responsibilities
  • Medical Transcription Jobs: The medical transcriptionist is responsible for transcribing physician dictated reports and other related documents. They work in healthcare facilities, private clinics, and third-party employers. The typical entry-level positions require at least a post-secondary education and knowledge of medical terminologies.
  • Legal Transcription Jobs: The legal transcriptionist is responsible for transcribing, editing, and proofreading the audio-recorded content of various legal proceedings, which court reporters typically record. The transcribing is done by listening to the recording and typing out what was said word-for-word. Some US states require a certificate in legal transcription and knowledge of court proceedings.
  • General Transcription Jobs: Academia, businesses, podcasts, and video production houses also employ transcribers. These jobs involve listening to recorded speech or other sounds, such as meetings, interviews, lectures, etc., and entering the text into a transcription machine or computer program as per the prescribed format. Many third-party companies hire transcription experts for transcribing on an hourly basis. A higher secondary degree with domain experience is often the requirement of a general transcriber.
Average Pay Scale for Transcribing Jobs

The average payout for transcribing jobs is around $15.16 per hour. However, professionals with certifications and domain experience can earn more. Also, the average salaries vary depending on the job role.

  • Most entry-level medical transcriptionists have a salary of $35,270 per year. However, those with extensive experience and technical knowledge can earn more than $55,220, according to BLS 2020 Occupational Outlook.
  • An early-career legal transcriber with less than five years of experience can earn $15.53 per hour.
  • A general transcriber with less than five years of experience makes $12 to $13.5 per hour. An experienced transcriber can earn anywhere between $15 to $20 an hour.
Transcribing Jobs Career Qualification and Skills

General transcribing jobs usually don’t require a college degree but most working transcribers report having a high school education. Many professionals do transcribe work from home, and some do it for part-time income. However, medical and legal transcribers need education and training in their respective fields.

Educational Qualification
  • Most medical transcriptionists have at least a post-secondary education, and a solid foundation in medical vocabulary, language, and computer software.
  • Legal transcriptionists generally have higher secondary education and some experience working in legal departments. Many legal transcribers also opt for certification from organizations like the American Association of Electronic Reporters and Transcribers (AAERT).
Essential Skills
  • Typing speed: A fast typing speed of at least 65 words per minute is ideal for entry-level transcribing jobs.
  • Language: Having a strong grasp of the English language is essential, even if you can type quickly and listen attentively.
  • Computer Skills: Working knowledge of word processing and other transcribing software is quite essential for most transcribing jobs.
  • Attentive: A strong attention to detail mindset can help avoid unwanted mistakes during the job.
  • Time-management: Medical or legal transcriptionists should operate well under pressure because of the time constraints of dictation.
Transcribing Jobs Interview Tips

The transcription interview usually consists of an audio transcribing test followed by an interview. If you have passed the test, then the interview is the window for showcasing why you’re the best fit for the job. Here are some helpful tips:

  • Practice answering questions about technical knowledge, experience, and job skills one night before the interview
  • Be familiar with the most relevant industry terminologies for medical and legal transcribing job interviews.

Be specific while answering questions like why should we hire you? You can say, for accuracy and excellent time management.
