Get the training you need to work successfully as a general transcriptionist--from setting up your foot pedal to getting paid--all through easy to follow video tutorials.


Getting Started

Way, way, way back in 1999, I got started in the transcription industry as a subcontractor for a transcription firm. I've made mistakes along the way and learned some great tips & tricks. Now, I successfully work directly with my own clients all from my home office.

I know how overwhelming it can be to get started, all the questions, all the doubt, and I want to help you to be a successful general transcriptionist. It's not about teaching you how to type, but all the nuances to the career so that you can build your own transcription business!


Now you can create closed captions/.srt files WITHOUT CODING! If you're not using closed captions, you are missing out on a HUGE CHUNK of your potential audience! It's SO, SO important to add closed captions to your videos! Now you can DIY it - without using time codes!
