Amusing job

Transcription - Intermediate

 

I speak at approximately 150 words per minute and a skilled typist can type at about 80 words per minute. At 10 hours of audio this project will take you approximately 15-20 hours. I tell you this because I am looking for a freelancer that wont shy away from hard work.

 

I TELL YOU THIS, becuase you don't have a clue about transcribing, he ought to try doubling the amount of time, or in fact just do it himself lol. 

 

Does anyone actually know how fast they speak in words per minute, new one to me

I seen that one too and was going to apply and explain this to the client, but decided not to waste my time.

Angela,

 

I agree that the poster is clueless about transcription.

To answer your question, anyone who does professional public speaking would (should) know their speaking rate in words per minute.

 

Best,

Michael
