All you have to do is just listen to audio and type it in a text file. The payment rate varies from each company to company. Companies who pay high obviously expects high quality from transcribers. We are going to review about the Scribie transcription opportunity here. We have started with the Scribie review first in the category of legitimate work from home options for everyone as we thought it is a good website to start with since it is not particular about medical transcriptions. Many websites provide mostly medical transcription files which are not very easy to work with. Read on for Scribie review.

Scribie Review - Scribie Transcription

Scribie provides you work from home option and pay you for transcription work. was founded by Rajiv Poddar, an Electronics and Telecommunication graduate from NIT Silchar, India. He has worked for few years in reputed IT companies. In 2008, he started his own venture Scribie.





If you have put an effort to search for good transcription jobs, then you might have across so many websites but most of them offer only medical transcription jobs. Medical transcription is not something easy for everyone at least in my perspective. Scribie provides general transcription options so any one of you can try your hands on.
