Do I have to work a minimum number of hours? Do I have to work at specific times during the week?
We have no minimums for when or how much you work. The beauty of our platform is that you can work as much or as little as you like! Some of our transcribers work part-time, while others work consistently throughout the week. Jobs are always available, and you can choose a file to work on at any time of the day. You decide when you start and stop working.
What other opportunities are available for transcribers?
Transcribers who consistently produce high-quality work and achieve high scores have the chance to become Reviewers. Reviewers are responsible for proofreading and, if necessary, editing transcribers' work.
When and how will I be paid?
You can be paid in two ways: payment per audio minute or payment per word. The payment methods differ from one another based on job type. Payment is currently made via PayPal and is transferred every second Monday, based on all the audio files you completed in the prior weeks. Please make sure you register for Verbit with your PayPal account email and that your PayPal is active before requesting payment.
Who can I get in touch with if I have more questions?
Feel free to contact us at email@example.com or use the support chat available on the bottom left corner of the platform.
Why are transcription and captioning necessary in higher education?
All publicly funded universities must comply with the ADA and Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, which require all video content to be fully accessible with captions that are 99% accurate. Transcripts and captions have also been proven to help all students, particularly those who are deaf or hard of hearing, with better information recall and higher engagement. Read More
