When I am cruising along... - bw

I love keeping track and monitoring production and performance, and every couple of weeks or so, I'll add up the total length of the recordings I transcribed in an hour.

I consider myself a very fast transcriptionist. I typically average about 30 minutes of medical dictation per hour. 40 minutes if I'm really flying with easy work, and 20 minutes if I'm running into problems.

Now, keep in mind that is medical transcription with one speaker. Lots of repeated terminology that a text expander helps out on.

By my estimate, $20 per audio hour translates to $10 per hour in real work... much less if you are transcribing meetings or something that does not lend itself well to speed typing with a text expander.

My advice: Make them what you feel is a fair offer, take the job, and see how it works out. If you find you are getting paid jack s**t when you sit down and get to work, tell them so. Tell them you want to renegotiate, or tell them you just can't go on working. It's not like you can't just walk away if it doesn't work out.
