Elite Transcription Course Series Overview
Yes, it has been a good match for me. I like that the courses are divided up into many different courses. This way I can choose to continue or stop without paying for ALL of it.
Although it's just an introduction, I learned a lot and decided to proceed with the next courses. I think this job would be perfect for me. Thank you so much.
I now know what the role requires, how to get paid and how much at the initial stage. A very practical overview of the industry and the software/hardware required. Now I feel confident to get started and approach recruiters for my first general transcription job.
"An Introduction To Transcription" is very thorough and educational. Krysty is easy to follow and has years of experience which I appreciate her sharing. With the information I now have from this course, I feel confident that general transcription is the industry for me. I really enjoyed this course!
The course is amazing, but the problem for me is my listening and I'm foreign. My main language is Spanish and it looks like what you need are native speakers. Lovely job from home. Thanks Angela De Barbieri
I was hoping for some more in depth learning about actual transcription. Also, the intro (used in each lesson) was unnecessary and added more time to the training that needed.
Currently in a job that involves transcribing and this course has provided simple and effective techniques to help improve your skills.
The course is exactly what I needed to have an overview of the transcription field and to help me decide to discover it more in depth. Thank you!
This course was very informative. It helped me a lot to let me know more information about transcribing. It was a little too much about what the narrator feels about certain aspects of the job, rather than just information about the job itself.
I have done some transcription in the past, however, this course is updating my skills, and giving me more of a business aspect of transcribing.
Still very basic information to this point in the course, although helpful, I need more detailed information which may come later.
This course gave me a good understanding of the transcription field and what is both required and expected of me. Krysty is direct and to-the-point. I would recommend this course to anyone considering this occupation. Krysty made it clear it is not just working from home in your pajamas.
I thought she had great information and resources. Sometimes we went too fast and rambled a bit and in some of the sections, I felt there should have been more content.
Thought this course covered everything. Discovered in the last video it's only an introductory course, the first of ten in the series...
I enjoyed the course which provided me with useful information, and points with regard to transcription and its process. The tips given with the practice file are helpful to a rookie thinking about taking the transcription route. I also found the articles given as examples useful, so you could relate to the actual events that had happened when referred to in certain sections of the course. Thank you.
