Transcriptionist Job Application Process

Check out our streamlined evaluation process and the steps you must follow to apply for a transcription job opening at SpeakWrite.

Step 1

Start Your Application

After you have read the job requirements and are ready to start, click the orange button below and enter your contact information.

Step 2

Passing the Typing Speed and Accuracy Test

Log in using the username and password you established in step 1. There you will find
a short exercise to validate your typing speed and accuracy. Your typing speed must be equal to, or above 60 WPM and you must achieve 90% accuracy to advance past this point.

Step 3

Confidentiality Agreement, Work History and Availability
You will be asked to review and sign a Confidentiality Agreement. You will then be asked to provide more detailed information about your work history and availability. You must meet our work experience requirements to advance past this step. 

Step 4

SpeakWrite Policies and Formatting Training 
Once your work history has been approved, you will be given access to training videos and quizzes. Just complete a few exercises to get you up to speed on how our system works and our formatting policies.

Step 5

Training Jobs
The final step is to download our software and complete a few training jobs. This lets you practice in the software before accepting live jobs, and helps to verify that you comprehend all document policies. Your completed transcription jobs will then be evaluated for adherence to our policies and procedures.

How to Mail Your Recorded Tapes

Many clients have recorded mini or standard cassette tapes to submit to us for transcription, but would rather not use their staff and resources to input these tapes into our system. In these instances, you can have these recorded cassettes delivered to us, and we will upload them into our system for transcription for you. To use this method of submission, you must have an existing SpeakWrite account. Send recorded tapes via overnight courier or USPS to the following address:

SpeakWrite Tape Processing Center
6300 Bridgepoint Pkwy
Building 1, Suite 100
Austin, Texas 78730

(800) 828-3889
Attn: Production Manager

With each delivery, you must print out a Recorded Tape Transmittal Sheet and enclose it with the tapes to be transcribed. Your package must include properly addressed and pre-paid packaging and label for the return of your tapes, using a service that provides for delivery tracking. If this is not included, we will return your tapes to you and charge your account a $10.00 delivery fee. Immediately upon our receipt of your tapes, we will input them into the SpeakWrite system for transcription. You will receive the transcription of the taped material via the email address on your account, just as any other SpeakWrite job. Your tapes will be returned to you via the delivery method you designate 48 hours after the completion of your transcript. All work transcribed will be charged at the standard, per word rate. There is no additional charge for handling or inputting the tapes. Be sure to erase all previously recorded tapes completely before recording any new dictation in order to avoid having old work transcribed by mistake or jeopardizing the quality of the newly recorded material.
