What Makes a Good Transcriptionist?

When you think of a transcriptionist, one of the first helpful skills that may come to mind is being a good typist.  This is definitely a plus but it can also be learned if you’re not currently very fast. A good typing software program and a little practice will get you up to speed in no time.   

Along with good typing skills there are a few other key traits.  

Helpful Skills to be a Transcriptionist:  

         Ability to apply common sense.  Often times you won’t understand what the dictation is saying and you’ll need to try to put the phrase into context to figure out what the speaker means. 

         A keen eye for detail.  This will help in proofreading and editing to ensure you turn in the highest quality work. 

         Strong work ethics. You’ll have to meet deadlines and be extremely reliable. 

          Good organizational skills.  If you have a lot of clients it’s important to stay organized.  

         Good communication skills.  For marketing your business and dealing with clients.

         Professionalism and discreetness (often times you’ll be transcribing very sensitive documents which require full confidentiality). 

         Basic computer skills and the ability to get around a word processing program 

Note: Transcription is not be confused with medical or legal transcription.  Both medical and legal transcription require training to learn terminology.  General transcription (which we refer to here as "transcription") doesn't require any special training courses.  You just need an eye for detail, good typing speed ands lots of common sense.
