Working From Home Transcribing

Is anyone here a freelance work-from-home transcriptionist that has tips on finding good gigs?

As a beginner, I’m curious to know…

  • the categories of transcription work
  • typical requirements for transcriptionists
  • your take on transcribing books, videos, podcasts and audios
  • hours - how flexible are they?
  • training - what training have you done and what do you recommend?
  • experience - what experience is suggested to have?
  • scams - how do I avoid being scammed?

I would like to hear your past experience on this before I start investing my time and effort.

Thanks.
