What is Training Like at Net Transcripts?
There is not much training as so to speak, because you should be an experienced transcriptionist with a good command of the English language. If you apply for General Transcriber, they want experienced transcribers with financial interpretation experience. If you apply for the Law Enforcement Transcriber, they want experience in law enforcement or criminal justice as a transcriber.
Net Transcripts will go over most of the information after you apply and pass a criminal background check (it appears they may cover the cost for this). Everything you do as a transcriber is web-based, and you will use their FTP client to upload your audio files.
