If you only transcribe 200 lph, IMO, you are an average-speed MT. This means you realistically will be looking at 50% increase in lines when you move to editing. The really slow MTs usually do better with VR because they are actually able to produce the product faster.
Those of us who transcribe at conversational speed or faster, totally struggle with VR because you can't do it any faster than faster. So our wages generally go down thanks to the pay cut for VR lines.
