In a previous post – 5 Work from Home Transcription Jobs with “No Experience Necessary” – Mike told you about… well… 5 Work from Home Transcription Jobs with “No Experience Necessary.”
Since we get so many queries about this kind of work, here are five more companies that hire work from home transcribers.
If you are an accurate transcriber and can meet their “AFR” standards (accuracy, formatting, reliability) standards, 1-888-TYPE-IT-UP could be a great place to make some money.
According to their site, they pay at least $36 per audio hour. Pay rates vary per file depending on the client’s budget and your past performance.
They pay twice monthly mid-month and on the last day of the month.
If accepted, you will need a foot pedal (cost approximately $55).

Transcribe “voicemail messages, memos, letters, legal files, medical files, recordings of phone calls, conference calls and other audio files.”
From what we were able to find on compensation, they pay about 1/4 of a cent per word (4 words for a penny). That’s not high pay but, depending on how it could be a nice little egg to add to your extra money basket.
Pays weekly. Position requires a background check which will cost you about $15 (as an independent contractor, IRS regulations prohibit the company from paying for your background check).
Way With Words Ltd.
