VIQ Solutions is looking to work with individuals who have experience relevant to proofreading and correcting draft versions of audio transcriptions.
Our Vendors / independent contractors will be editing transcripts to match the audio content of criminal investigations, internal affairs, and various other legal and law enforcement audios. Contractors must have prior verbatim, multi-speaker audio transcription or editing experience. Whether you want to transcribe full-time or part-time, we have more than enough work to go around.
Prior verbatim transcription or editing experience is required, as well as having done interview transcriptions. We love working with typists that have had experience transcribing or editing for a law enforcement agency, courts, or a law office. You must be computer savvy and able to learn new programs quickly.
All work is completed within our all-in-one transcription platform. Editors will receive a draft of a transcript that has been created by speech-to-text technology, then listen to the corresponding audio while proofreading and correcting the document to ensure it meets accuracy requirements. Typical corrections include correcting speakers who were misidentified, correcting the accuracy of words spoken, adding words spoken that were not picked up by AI, fixing punctuation, and correcting formatting.
New orders are available Monday through Friday with turnarounds that vary from same day to 5 business days. The majority of our orders are 3 business days. Our order pool allows you to choose orders that fit into your schedule – displaying length of audio and turnaround for each order. You may claim anywhere from a couple orders a week up to fully booking yourself a “full-time” amount of orders.
A full criminal background check is required for individuals completing this work.
There is an initial assessment period before any vendor is able to complete client work. Therefore, it is essential that you have prior Law Enforcement transcription or court reporting experience and are able to proof your work to be at least 98% accurate.
Pay is per audio minute and dependent on the turnaround time. Detailed information regarding pay rates will be sent to all qualified applicants after the application is reviewed.
