Hello Odesk Member,
I have an mp3 audio (25 minutes long) that I need to be transcribed. The audio features me reading some notes that I made about a book on the topic of "Eldercare."
Most of the words in this essay are pretty standard and generic ... anybody that can write well in English will be able to listen to them and transcribe them. A few of the words contain peoples' last names, which I do not expect the transcriber to necessarily spell correctly (just please write down what you think the spelling is, put the name in parenthesis, and that will be good enough)
A few other simple requirements are as follows:
-- I will ask chosen candidates to transcribe the first 2 minute portion of this audio and send the work to me so that I can gauge their ability to transcribe the complete audio recording.
-- If you don't know or aren't sure about the spelling of any particular word then please put that word in parenthesis ... like (this).
-- I need this done rather quickly, so please don't bid on this job if it is going to take you more than a couple of days to complete.
-- Please "double space" after each full sentence that you transcribe.
-- Please send me the finished transcription, typed-out, in a standard pdf (8.5 x 11 page size)
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
