Work at home with typing and online transcription jobs.



Still, don’t know which work at home suits you? Out of the many work-at-home jobs, Here’s something that might interest you. How would you like to get paid to type and or transcribe? There are companies that pay people to type that won’t require any experience. While some companies look for those with experience. Are you a beginner? Experienced? Read on and check out how you can earn some extra money from home typing.


What is transcription? Here’s a typing job that may require experience. Although, some companies are willing to pay beginners as long as they perform tasks well. You must have good listening skill. Because this job requires listening to audio materials of interviews, lectures, videos etc and then typing them to text.


What do I need to get started?


-Reliable internet connection
-transcription software (that you can easily download over the internet or company will provide one for you)
-foot pedal


How about skills?


– Fast typing skills
– Accurate typing skills
– Good listening skill
– Good grammar


“But I’m not experienced”. Not to worry. There’s a lot of work at home that doesn’t require a degree or experience? And this is one of them. Although having one won’t hurt. All it takes is a skill that you acquire through the years or something that you could learn on your own or with some training. It’s called data entry.


What is Data Entry?


This is one of the many work-at-home that I find easy. But you have to be aware that there are also many data entry scams all over the internet. Most companies will ask you to type and input/edit data into their system. They also have skill requirements.

Don’t worry If you’re a beginner some of them hire people even if they are not very fast at typing. Because once you get the hang of it, you will speed up eventually. Requirements are very much the same with transcription jobs although you don’t necessarily need headphones or foot pedals. But a good computer and a reliable internet is always a requirement for almost all work at home jobs.

      Data Entry is okay but, they don’t have a more regular job offers/tasks. If you want a consistent job offers. You should go with transcription. They have a regular pool of clients bringing more jobs to everyone.
