Need more time? Work as an online transcriptionist!

The main benefit of working as an online transcriptionist is that you are able to set your own hours, giving you the flexibility to manage your own work/life balance.

Many jobs require you at the workplace at certain times; however when working for a digital transcription service you can set your own days and hours.

Although many digital transcription services require their typists to do a minimum number of hours each the week, to a large extent you can specify when and for how long you would like to work each day.

You can also easily take days off for family and other commitments. So instead of fitting family or personal time around work, you can fit your digital transcription work around family and personal time.

Balance Life and Work by becoming a typing contractor with Pacific Transcription

Online transcription work involves listening to audio and typing what you hear, all from your home computer.  The content of the typing ranges from interview transcription through to medical or legal transcription.

File transfer takes place over the internet, so audio files are downloaded and documents uploaded once complete.  This means that the work can be done entirely from home; there is no time wasted in receiving tapes or posting completed transcriptions back.

Another great perk is that there is no time wasted in commuting to and from the office and you can continue working at times that would otherwise require time off.  For example, waiting for a tradesperson or caring for a child home from school for the day.

You are also able to use spare time during the day to work on your digital transcription work, such as when children are asleep or dinner is in the oven. This would be impractical, if not impossible, if it meant having to physically go into the office.

Digital transcription work is ideal for those who have young children or other carer responsibilities, and for people who are studying.  Anyone who wants more control over their time will benefit from doing digital transcription.

Working as an online transcriptionist will not only give you more control over your time, but more time to spare — time to spend with family, to spend studying or simply doing the things that you enjoy in life.

      Hi Amanda, thank you for your query. You sound like you have your hands very full indeed, raising four children.

      Quite a number of our typists are stay-at-home parents, balancing raising their children with earning an income to help support the family. One of the many benefits of being a typing contractor is that you can work around school hours.

    Hi Catherine, I’ve never done transcription work before, but have administrative work experience. I have used Microsoft office Suite and can type fairly well. Would this be suitable for me, even if I haven’t done this type of work before?

    • Catherine Byrne says
      03 Oct at 10:40 am

      Hi Anna, thank you for your great question. A common misconception is that being a transcriptionist just involves “speedy typing”. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

      In reality successful transcriptionists possess a wide range of skill sets, which are highly transferable. Successful transcriptionists are highly skilled professionals. Many of our own typing contractors are trained and practicing professionals in other areas, including: law, the “helping” professions (general practitioners, nursing, teachers, social workers, physiotherapists and other allied health professionals), accountancy, business administration/management, financial planning, etc.

      So if you possess excellent research and communication skills, love language and all its quirks, have strong computer literacy and time management skills, and revel in attention to detail, you are well on your way to demonstrating those qualities and skills which are sought after by top transcription companies.

      For further information on what skills and qualities are appealing to transcription companies, visit the skills section of our Typing Careers page. If you think you have what it takes to be an excellent transcriptionist, please apply via the Careers section of our website. Being a typing contractor can be a thoroughly rewarding career. Good luck Anna.

    Hi. I would like to know what the rate of pay is for this position. Apologies if it has been previously asked on this forum. Thanks.

    • Catherine Byrne says
      11 Sep at 11:39 am

      Hi Keren, Thank you for your query. The rate of pay really does vary depending on many variables, including the type of transcription files (research – multiple voices, medical and legal – dictation) the file content (for example, industry-specific content/specialties may attract a higher rate) and complexity and quality of the audio. A ball park figure (and again, this is only an estimate) is a starting rate of $20 – $25 per hour for a typist who is starting out, with little experience, and no specialties. There are many opportunities to increase that rate, as the work flows in. If you are interested in working from home, with flexible conditions, please do consider becoming a typing contractor. To access the online application please visit our online careers portal. Good luck.

      Hi Anita, Thank you for your comment and for providing information on your previous experience as a medical transcriptionist. Pacific recently updated the eligibility requirements to better reflect our current practices and growing and expanding areas of transcription work.

      Although Pacific has always recruited both within Australia and across the world, Pacific now has much clearer eligibility criteria for typing contractors. You will be pleased to hear that we are currently recruiting medical typing contractors outside Australia.

      As with many other transcription areas, transcriptionists focusing on medical transcription need to be extremely fluent in English although not necessarily native speakers.

      Along with such fluency they also need to be able to discern English spoken as a second language by speakers from India, China, the former USSR, Egypt, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, the former Yugoslavia, Iraq, Hong Kong, Bangladesh, among many other countries.

      I strongly encourage you to apply via our online careers portal, as we are currently recruiting typing contractors with strong medical background and experience. Good luck!

    Hi Catherine

    I am interested in becoming a Pacific Transcription typist. I have a lot of experience in Admin roles including typing documents and some years ago did Dictaphone work for legal, engineering and personal injury firms. I do not have recent transcription experience but I love words, typing and I am a great speller. I have just quickly done an online typing test and results are just over 70 wpm at 98% accuracy and considering I’ve been out of the workforce for over a year caring for my mother, I’m pretty pleased with that!

    I am currently looking for work and also a change from what I have been previously doing. Do you think this could be a viable role for me?

      One of the reasons I encourage you to apply (apart from your strong medical background – we are currently hiring medical typists) is that you may find a great niche with us regarding transcribing audio files of European-based finance companies.

      Earlier this year Pacific acquired a European-based company which focuses on finance-related transcription, and Pacific is currently recruiting typists who have a great grasp of the multitude of European and Asian accents, and who also possess strong finance knowledge. Give it a go! You can apply via our online Careers portal. Good luck.

    Hi Catherine

    I am interested in becoming a typist for your company – I do have a lot of experience in Admin roles and some years ago worked for an osteopath where I gained dictaphone experience. I do not have recent transcription experience but I love words and I am a great speller! I am currently employed in the manufacturing industry but looking for a change. I am not a super fast typist – would you have some work that would suit me?

    • Catherine Byrne says
      19 Oct at 10:01 am

      Hi Rebecca, Thanks for your query regarding suitability as a typing contractor with Pacific. I too share your love of words, they give life a charming complexity.

      Just like you, the majority of our typing contractors have had a plethora of interesting and diverse work experiences before becoming a typist with Pacific. This is a real strength, and will stand you in good stead.

      One essential skill that all transcriptionists must possess is fast and accurate typing speed. Our research typists require a minimum of 70 words per minute, with a very high degree of accuracy. The online application process includes a formal typing test which measures the speed and accuracy of the applicant.

      If you don’t have a minimum of 70 words per minute, I would suggest practising this skill to bring it up to minimum standard. There are many free typing tests online, and it is easy to download audio to practise typing.

      Other than fast and accurate typing speed, it sounds like you already possess the relevant skills, abilities and knowledge to commence the online application process. I recommend practising first, to get your speed up, and then have a go at the application. Good luck!

      Hi Dianne, Thank you for your enquiry regarding suitability as a typing contractor with Pacific Transcription. Even if you don’t strictly qualify as a medical typist (min. five year’s medical typing experience), you have a wealth of experience and knowledge across many other disciplines, so I would strongly encourage you to apply.

      I would also encourage you to mention in the application process that you have personal injury and work care files seeking examinations, medical reports etc., experience, as this will notify the HR Manager of the breadth of your experience. It can’t hurt!

      With all your previous experience, you sound like just the type of typist we need. I wish you all the best with the application process.

I want to work from home as this will enable me have time to prepare for, and also raise money to sit for the australian medical board exam.I am interested not only in medical transcripts but also research.

      Hi Gbolade, Thank you for your comment and welcome to Australia! It sounds like you do have an immense wealth of experience and knowledge, having practised as a Medical Doctor for over 10 years across a variety of medical specialties.

      The application process to become a typist with Pacific Transcription does take some time, so if you are prepared to set aside that time to participate, that is wonderful.

      The most important things to remember (aside from having at least five years’ medical experience, which you already possess), are that we do require a minimum typing speed of 60wpm and a commitment of at least 20 hours per week (which can be spread across business hours and after hours, so there’s a great deal of flexibility there).

      I do encourage you to submit your application, via our online portal. I wish you all the best with both the application to become a typist with Pacific, and further down the track, your application to work as a medical doctor here in Australia. We certainly need more trained doctors in this country. Good Luck!

      Having the flexibility and ability to transcribe many different file topics as well as an in-depth knowledge in one main area (in this case, medical) are highly sought after skills in our line of work.

      26 Aug at 1:37 am

      Hi Wendy, Thank you for your query. Having a legal typing background with 20 years of typing experience will certainly stand you in good stead if you choose to apply via our online application process.

      We do have typists with backgrounds in legal typing, and we have many clients who are legal professionals; however as we are not exclusively a legal transcription company we do not offer legal transcription typing per se. For this reason our legal typists must also possess a versatility and flexibility to transcribe a wide range of topics and areas, including transcribing audio for our research clients.

      Most of our typists relish the opportunity to transcribe a range of varied and interesting subject matter. It keeps the job interesting!

      I encourage you to apply via our online application process, found in the Careers section on our website. Happy typing!

      Hi Lucy, Thank you for your comment. You have your work cut out for you with three children under five – that in itself is a full-time job! Becoming a transcriptionist with Pacific Transcription will certainly provide you with the flexibility you need when raising small children and earning an income.

      I would strongly encourage you to commence the online application process, as we are currently recruiting more medical transcription typists.

      Your background in pharmacy and extensive knowledge of medical terminology is extremely important and highly prized by our HR department.

      Regarding dictaphone experience, you don’t need that. All audio files are uploaded to our secure website, and allocated to our typists via our typist portal. This means you don’t have to worry about downloading the audio first from a dictaphone, and then typing it. That part of the process is already done at our end.

      From the experience and knowledge you describe, I would say you are eminently suitable for the role of transcriptionist with Pacific Transcription. Please do apply, and good luck!

    • Catherine Byrne says
      12 Jul at 3:08 am

      Hi Yvette, Thank you for your comment. Unfortunately Pacific Transcription does not generally engage inexperienced typists.

      Pacific Transcription requires medical typists to have a minimum of three years medical typing experience in a minimum of four medical specialties; and for research transcription, prior experience across a wide range of knowledge areas and advanced research skills using Google.

      However, the level of previous experience you need depends on the type of transcription you wish to undertake. For example, if you have exceptional and proven research skills, or extensive knowledge of finance terminology gained through work experience or study in a related area, but with little prior transcription experience, we would still consider you for work as a research transcriptionist.

      Research skills and in-depth knowledge of areas such as finance and media are HIGHLY valued.

      Please refer to the sections on Typing Contractor Opportunities and Previous Transcription Experience in the Careers section of our website for further information. I wish you the best of luck in your academic endeavours.

    Hi again Catherine

    Further to my comments just posted, I forgot to mention that I did do transcription work from home for an insurance assessor in the 1980’s, who specialised in private investigation for workers’ compensation claims. That was during the time I chose to stay home to raise my young family. Also, much of my work as a private secretary involved transcription work, but obviously those days it was with a typewriter and dictaphone, so no room for backspacing to remove errors!

      Hi Elaine, you are absolutely right, gone are the days of typewriter and analogue dictaphone! There are still a few older medical and legal professionals who will stick to their analogue devices until they retire, but their numbers grow less and less each year. Philips is probably one of the few manufacturers who still produce and sell analogue dictaphones and transcribers. Many of the other manufacturers (Olympus, etc.) ceased analogue production a number of years ago.

    Hi Catherine

    I did 3 years of a BA in Secretarial Studies at the Canberra College of Advanced Education (now Canberra University) in the 70’s and worked as a private secretary for a number of years after that. My major in the BA course was Law. I left work briefly to raise my children and then commenced work in a consulting industry typing up project reports, but gradually became more and more involved in the financial side of the business as Business Manager. So for the past 20-odd years have been the company’s bookkeeeper/payroll manager. I have excellent typing skills. During my working years I studied Fine Arts and undertook various creative writing courses. I haven’t worked in either the legal field or the medical field, but I am intellegent and am confident my language and general knowledge skills would see me managing any typing in these fields quite well. I was considering undertaking the 6-month course in medical transcription. Do you think that would be adequate qualification to commence transcription work with your organisation? I am a really driven person I am already working from home continuing to do my ex-employer’s bookkeeping in my capacity as a sole trader, but that only involves a few hours each fortnight.

    Regards
    Elaine

    • Catherine Byrne says
      04 Jul at 12:19 am

      Hi Elaine, Well you certainly have a LOT of experience across a number of fields which would serve you well in becoming a transcriptionist with our company.

      From the information provided I would say that your existing professional experience, great general knowledge, prior financial transcription experience and excellent typing skills make you exceptionally suitable as a finance and research transcriptionist.

      Regarding medical transcription, Pacific requires a minimum five (5) years experience in a minimum of four (4) specialties. Also, there is a huge difference in the technical skills used by medical transcriptionists and research/finance transcriptionists.

      Our experience is that medical typists are fantastic at typing dictations, that is, one voice in the audio. They also possess an in-depth understanding of medical vocabularies across many medical specialties.

      For people who have not had medical transcription experience, medical vocab can be daunting, to say the least; and as great as Google is, discerning between homonyms such as “humeral” and “humoral”, many times in the one dictation can be a slow and cumbersome process.

      Research and finance transcriptionists are experienced at transcribing audio with multiple voices featured, such as focus groups and financial media events, and possess exceptional research skills and general knowledge. So even though both are transcribing from audio, the technical skills involved are quite different.

      I hope this information is helpful. Please do submit your application with us, as your skills are in high demand. Good luck.

      27 Jun at 2:14 am

      Hi Seethal, Thank you for your query – great question! Pacific only takes on experienced typists, generally with a minimum three years of industry experience. We train new typists to our systems, but we do expect an existing good level of English/grammar skills, great listening skills, and a typing speed of 60+ wpm (for medical), and 70+ wpm (for research).

      Once the applicant is successful, paid training can take from two weeks to two months, depending on the level of experience the typist possesses.

      Please do visit the Careers section on our website to find out more information, and to apply to be an online transcriptionist with Pacific Transcription.

      Your medical knowledge, experience and skills are certainly an advantage, and it is great work to obtain when balancing family caring responsibilities with paid employment. Good luck!

    Hi Catherine,
    I live in Adelaide, South Australia and am very interested in working from home. I have dictaphone experience albeit years ago when working for lawyers but then my husband and myself bought a lighting business which we sold last year.

    I am very interested in working from home as I have plenty of time on my hands as my children have now grown up and married.

    My typing speed is around 100 wpm. I have thought about doing this for quite some time and I realize that although I have not worked in the legal side for quite some time or the medical side I feel that I can bring experience and I am sure it will not take me very long to get up to speed.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Regards
    Alison

      Hi Alison, Great to hear you are interested in working from home. One of the benefits of working from home as an online transcriptionist is that you can work flexible hours, which really does help in maintaining the right work/life/family balance specific to you.

      Having a typing speed of around 100wpm is fantastic! Even though you haven’t worked in the legal sector for quite some time you don’t lose that knowledge or experience. These skills are so valuable and enduring.

      I do encourage you to visit the Careers section of our website and apply to become an online transcriptionist with Pacific Transcription. The application process is entirely online.

      Do also have a look at the Recommended Technology page,which outlines the equipment required to transcribe. We all use the Alto Edge foot pedals in the office, with Express Scribe Pro transcription software, and of course, a comfy headset! Best of luck.

    Hello
    I am a retired clinical nurse who spent 44 years in nursing, the latter 30 odd years in psychiatry. I learned typing at school and have used this skill my whole working life more so over the last 10 years since computers were introduced into the hospital systems. I am a good and accurate typist and am now interested in doing some typing from home as a part time work position. However, I am not sure if I am computer literate enough to set your programme up.

    My name is Clancette Clift. I have done some Oral History transcription on the old tape players, with a foot control many years ago.

    I have a degree in Communication, gained after running a small Printing Press for a few years, using a 200 year old Platen Press. The venture involved working alone at night in my darkroom, making letterpress printing plates from pages laid out in Pagemaker by myself.

    I expanded into small Publishing and personally published several books, which were printed on my own press. Marrying a man I then met caused me to spend from 2007 to 2014 managing a supermarket, and learning many new skills.

    I then discovered I had cancer of the breast, and my husband died in early 2014.
    Therefore I sold the supermarket, and am still having Radiotherapy which is to be completed by the week after Easter.

    It is my wish to work part time, and have thought of doing Editing, but prefer to stay at home and work if possible. Solitude gives me great pleasure.
