How can I start working as a transcriber?

Fill out the registration form. You will then receive an email containing a link to a test for potential transcribers. Once you complete the test, you will receive an answer via email indicating if you have passed or not. Those who are successful are eligible to begin working.

I passed the test. How do I get started?

You can log in to the platform and claim files to work on by clicking on the file name – we do not assign them to you. Our algorithm will automatically generate a transcript for you to edit, and, upon completion, you simply send for review. Sections that have many transcription errors may be deleted and retyped from scratch. In a case where a transcriber claims a file and does not perform any action on it for two hours consecutively, the file will be automatically unassigned. Transcribers can always return to the jobs list to find the next audio file to work on.

Notes and Documentation Best Practices – Legal

When uploading a job file, providing as much relevant supporting documentation as possible is a crucial step in ensuring that you get the most accurate transcript. Your court reporter is an invaluable resource to us as s/he is physically present during the proceedings. S/he is responsible not only for trying to get the best sound capture possible and facilitating best practices, but also for taking detailed notes and asking questions when necessary. At Verbit, we want to partner with you to optimize the transcription process by using your quality input to produce excellent output. Depending on the type of proceedings that is being recorded, there are different documents that will be available to you. Below, please find the list of documentation that is required or recommended for each proceeding type. All Verbit transcribers are trained to research and confirm the spelling of every entity they encounter (i.e. names, businesses, addresses, medical jargon, etc.). Typically, court reporters will also ask to confirm spellings after a proceeding has finished. Attaching this information can reduce research time and the incidence of phonetic spellings. Please note: A sample image of each type of documentation is provided in the appendixes. Read More
