Transcription Equipment

Complete Transcription SolutionTranscription jobs have been always popular across the globe, for stay at home spouses, college students, and people changing careers. Whether you’re considering transcription as a side job or you’re interested in a full time position, there are tools you’ll need for smooth transcribing:

Computer or laptop: 
You will need a computer or laptop. Some people can work using multiple tablets, integrating with cloud word processing systems (such as Google Documents), but we would suggest you stick to a desktop or laptop with a big screen. While you  won’t need a top of the line model, an efficient system that functions properly and doesn’t slow you down is something you should arrange.

Transcription Software
Surprise: efficient transcription requires an advanced software. You can still work using word perfect or notepad software, but if you want to make a decent pay per hour, you should consider getting professional software before you get started.

Luckily, most people already have high-speed internet in their homes, even if they don’t typically work from a home office. If you don’t have a high-speed internet you should arrange it as soon as possible.

Finally, one of the most important tools you shouldn’t skip. Along with software and foot pedal a good quality headphone is a must. Noise canceling headphones are ideal for the transcription work.

A Comfortable Chair
You’re going to be sitting for long periods of time and you don’t want a back pain. Get a comfortable chair for your transcription work. Or opt in for the stand desk and forget about the chair. Enjoy your work while burning additional calories.
