Business transcription and medical transcription both can be done from home and they are financially very productive.

It is easier to get medical transcription jobs compared to business transcription. The only requirement from most employers who provide medical transcription is that some training or experience in the field

With the ready and economical availability of internet, transcription is a very good method of having a steady source of income. As long as the home atmosphere is not disturbing, home transcription can be successful.

There are companies who also play around with money to be paid. So, it is important to check and then start doing the work.

Hi,

I know medical transcription requires a certain level of qualification and experience. Though I don't have that qualification but I have a Medical Terminology book (US)
.
However, other transcription job I can be performed. What they require are discipline. dedication, and commitment. Need the equipment also which I don't have now.

Hi,

Transcription of any sort requires speed, dedication and a slight background to the subject they are transcripting.
Equipment is a neccessary element, which can be made available as and when required. The most important factor being the quality of English. Grammar being the most essential item with spelling just behind.

Honestly speaking.... I am not familiar with the exact job of a person who transcribes. I did transcription as a part of my Communication Skills class in 1st year, engineering, if thats the phonetics transcription. What I do not understand is why do companies or individuals want medical or business documents transcribed. Or else I misunderstand the job itself.
Could someone clear this confused head of mine?

You should be trained for doing medical transcription. Without any training it is very difficult to do. You require training in medical terminology, drugs, and should practice on files for at least four to five months. Then only you can start working on live files and start earning.

Hi Mr. Vijay,

To become a medical transcriptionist though doesnt need any basic level of education, minimum should be 12th+. It requires minimum basic traning of 4-6 months,which many companies offer. In the traning period they will teach both theory which includes English grammar, americal accent and Language of Medicine. Then practical training will be given, which includes typing tutorial, first listening to the audio files, then slowly transcription will be started. At the end of the training period, one will be in such a position to transcribe audio files with a minimum of 30-40% accuracy only.

Medical Transcription needs many softwares like, Quicklook, Stedmans dictionary etc. So, one has to be competent enough to use all these software, to be eable to search google, yahoo for doctors name, hospitals name and a lot.

Initialy, it will be defficult to find jobs, one can join as OJT in any company and most companies take people at the intial stages with a 1-2 yrs bond.

Medical transcription field needs long hours to stick to your seat. But the growth prospects in this field is very high. Mts are knowns as hotcakes in the industry. Initial pay may be very low as 2k but if you want to make a carier in this, you can rise to a position of Quality Analyst within a span of 3 years with a pay cheque of 20k.

Best of Luck to all those who want to make a carier in this industry.
