018 Tech Tip Tuesday - Easy to Use and Inexpensive Transcription Service

By Tia Hain

We're going to go over an easy to use, super, super simple to use, and inexpensive transcription service for if you want anything transcribed. I'm talking about rev.com. Some of you may have heard of it. Some of you may not have heard of it. But I'm going to talk all about it and how you can use it and how much it costs, etc. First, an interesting little fact about me. I used to work for a closed captioning service. Long, long time ago, it seems like forever, I wanted to be an actress. So I moved to LA. Getting a job waiting tables is actually really difficult in LA. If you can do it, you can make really good money, but it's actually kind of difficult. One of the jobs I had was working for a closed captioning service. I wasn't the person that did the closed captioning live, because I am not that fast of a typist, but I'm really good at timing. Even though I wasn't the best typist in the world, I did really good at the closed captioning stuff. I thought when I wanted to transcribe things like my podcast or videos that I've made or any of that stuff, I'll just do it myself and it'll be really easy. It'll just be like when I used to work at the closed captioning place. It is not easy, and it takes a lot of time. Unless you are a super duper fast typist. Typing wasn't required when I was in school, so I never learned how to type without looking at the keyboard. Sometimes I can type well just because I've been doing it so long since now we work on computers. But trust me when I say that unless you are a super fast, accurate typist, one thing you are not going to want to do is type any of your own transcriptions. Any of your own closed captions, if you are doing them for videos or anything. This is not something you want to do for yourself. This is the first thing you want to outsource. This is the first thing I outsourced, it is super easy to do, and it's really not that expensive when you think about how much you're spending compared to how much time it would take you to do your own transcriptions for anything you're doing.
