  3. 3. Important Transcription Tools Foot pedal: Foot pedals allow a transcriptionist to navigate through audio files with their feet, not their hands. It thereby gives you the freedom to type away as you control the recorded file with your feet. Headphones: It is important to invest in a good headset. Sometimes audio files may have a lot of external noise or may be difficult to decipher. In such cases, a headset that picks up the treble and delivers crisp and clear audio is the way to go.

  4. 4. Required Transcription Equipment You must have a computer with word processing software (i.e. Microsoft Word), spell check and a headphone jack. You need a high speed Internet connection. You need a transcriber machine. A digital transcriber with a foot pedal will cost approximately $150 - $250, depending on which one you buy. Express Scribe is a transcriber that can be downloaded free of cost online. You can use your keyboard to start and stop the sound file instead of using a foot pedal.

  5. 5. Online Transcription Tools Aside from the basic requirements just discussed, there are many online transcription tools and software that are widely used today. Online transcription has evolved significantly over the past 20 years. While early transcription services always required transcriptionists, nowadays there are many automated transcription tools available that can provide a rough transcription through machine learning techniques. You may be able to indulge in more advanced tools as time goes by, but these basic tools are very important in the transcription industry. The quality of your tools will define the quality of your work, so research and compare different ones to identify exactly what you need. Accurate Transcription at Affordable Rates
