All experienced positions require that you have or be willing to obtain a digital foot pedal.

Entry level may start without a pedal but will be expected to obtain one within 60 days if the position works out.

Using a pedal enables you to work up to four times as fast as a typist without a pedal.  This allows you to be offered more work.

Legal positions will require a complete background check and finger printing as we do federal court hearings.  Legal pays .50/page for standard 7 days to .75/page for Rush.

Experienced corporate ranges from a low of .40/audio min. to a high of 1.00/audio min. depending on the client you are working with and your level of speed and accuracy.

The lower range of the scale takes into consideration your work will be proofed for accuracy.  The upper range of the scale will be given to those not requiring any proofing with 99% accuracy.

Experienced Medical Seminar ranges between 0.0030/word to 0.0040/word depending on the client you are working with.

Inexperienced without pedal will start at .35/audio minute.  As you progress in speed and accuracy your rate will rise accordingly.

Pay per audio minutes is determined by how many minutes of voice audio you transcribe and is NOT dependent on how long it takes you to do the work.

Example:  .35/audio min = $21.00/audio hr. If you had 60 min of audio, you would receive $21 if it took you two hours to do or if it took you five hrs to do.
