Transcribe.com have both transcriptionist jobs and transcription editor jobs. There is an online assessment for both.
Scribie divides their audio files into 6 minute slots. You need to go through a certification process and the pay seems to be a bit low from $5 to $20 per audio hour. So considering an audio hour takes around 4 hours to transcribe that would result in $5 per hour for the higher rate.
Amazing transcript offers transcription, translation and typing services. In the application it asks for a rate per hour but doesn’t give any indication of the pay.
The Vanan Transcription form to complete appears to be the same as the Amazing Transcript. Not sure if they are the same company or just using the same website template.
