Hello All,

 

I don't know if it's okay to talk on these boards about a particular job, so if it is not, Moderator please delete this post.

 

I have an assignment that I am supposed to complete. However, I can not get the correct program on my phone (WebHound - I can only get "Hound" and yes I tried for what seemed like hours to get WebHound) nor can I get the audio online to work. Keep getting "Error" messages.

 

I have a major high-speed internet connect, the right phone, and such.

 

Friday morning I wrote and to let them know this. I listed my question as: 1) 2) 3) etc. I waited all day for an answer and nothing. Eventually, they answered late Saturday night, with only ONE answer to my 6 questions. The answer was to make sure "I have high speed WiFi" - I do.

 

So today at 7am I cleared my history. Cleared all cookies, re-started my computer and..., yep, I'm still getting the "error" messages I got Friday. I am following all instructions to a "T" but it just will not work. I did a speed test, which looks good.  I wrote them again, but it looks like this assigment is going nowhere.

I did a search and all I find is an app on Git and something on Amazon for website analytics. I refuse to install apps on my computer unless it's reliable. Like Adobe gave me their software.

 

I see the project in Git but meh I wouldn't install this. It could do anything.

 

I would refuse this job. You're asking for malware. There isn't enough info on this software.

It's an app that one of Upwork's Talent Groups uses for audio collection jobs.

I worked on such a PTC job 2 weeks ago and used Webhound on my MacBook as I didn't want to install anything on my phone. I just logged in online.

Worked fine, just a bit slow to upload.

 

When you say you wrote to "them" - is that the ADC email address?

They were slow to respond to my questions as well on that project.

ooooh is this the $40 for 1000 audio recordings one? I declined that one. Guess it was a good idea cuz no installation stuff for me.

The German one paid slightly better Smiley Wink

 

I only did it because I wanted to become a member of that group and check out PTC clients. And there was no need to download anything if you used a laptop. The second PTC job (editing) was more lucrative.

You Germans get all the fancy stuff. Smiley Happy

 

Yeah, I considered it because just speaking into a mic can't be all that hard, but I imagine it would have been a few hours maybe, so it would take up too much time. If it was an hour maybe but $40 including the Upwork fee just wasn't worth it.
