I do both and recently I had two responses from my - post above. One never

followed through, and the second called me directly, and we had a very, very good productive conversation. The second one is well on her way to getting a job as a legal scopist and/or straight legal transcript typing for depositions.

To answer your question more specifically, I make a very, very healthy income and have not encountered the problems you have. We do get some of the CR notes as you described; however, I have been doing this long enough that many times I do not even use them or need them. When we do the audio files based on the the AI system, we have very, very little corrections required. You can shoot through a 300, 400, 500 page transcript in short order. Just to give you an average, depending on the system I am using, I average between $ 35.00 to $ 60.00 an hour. Legal is similar to MT in that you can have crappy audio at times, but we are NOT held to their slop -- it goes back to the attorneys/clients and they have to figure out their own slop. We give them as clean of a record as we can based on the quality of what they submitted to us.

I love my job, and as I stated before, I have helped many others get into this field. Most recently, I had two from this board email me directly (about 2 weeks ago); one did not follow through with the phone contact and the second one did. We had a great conversation; and I am now helping her get established in the legal field. From speaking with her directly, I think she will do very, very well.

I am not sure who you work for, and I suppose I really don't need to know that, but if there is any way I can help you, I would be more than happy/willing to do so.

Good luck! You sound like you are on a good path, and I wish you all the best.
