I have a series of six (6) articles that I need to be transcribed from QuickTime Audio files into Word documents. The articles average about 750 words each. Some are a bit shorter some are a bit longer.
I will provide the audio files and a text file with directions for each article. The directions will mainly contain hard to spell words or words that could not be easily spelt just by listening to them.
The winning provider will type out the articles and return them to me in Word format. This project is not very difficult but it does require some skills as listed below.
The winning provider must be fluent in American English. You must understand pauses in the dialog that indicate the end of a sentence. You must understand where a comma would go by listening to the inflection in my voice.
I understand that transcribing text to voice will not always be 100% but you must have the intuitive ability to grasp the grammar and apply it correctly.
You must understand the difference between words like: To, Too & Two. Or There, Their & They're.
Excellence in spelling is of course a must which is why I'm requesting the articles be returned in Word format, it has a spell checker.
I prefer that you have experience in transcription & excellent feedback. However since this is a fairly simple project I am willing to consider providers new to Freelancer who offer me a compelling reason to give them a chance.
The price for this project is $30 for the completion of all six articles. Once this project is completed if we are both happy I have literally dozens more articles that need to be transcribed and could conceivably provide you with enough work to keep you busy for quite a while.
If you check my feedback you will see that I am fair, honest and am always looking to build long-term partnerships.
How It Works
Please post your $30 bid with some information about yourself. I have attached a sample .mov audio file to this offering. Please download the file. Transcribe it, attach it as a Word file and PM it back to me. The file is very short but long enough to give me an idea of your skills.
Thank you for taking the time to read this offering. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
