General Audio Transcription is Getting More Popular For years general audio transcription was an unknown job and really took backstage to the more popular medical transcription jobs, which is still very popular today. However, doing medical transcription requires a lot of training in medical coding so those jobs were hard to get.


With the popularity of social media networks general audio is a rapid growing opportunity. Today people want to turn anything audio into text so they can post to their website, blogs, Facebook or Twitter page to name a few.

Why not just post the audio directly?

Everything nowadays has to do with getting ranked on the search engine results. Whether it is your website, blog or social pages. The higher you rank, the more traffic you get. And in most cases traffic equals money! The problem is search engines don’t recognize audio or video as content. In order to have content, you need text. In order to get text from audio, you need a transcriber and that is why general audio transcription is making a huge comeback. This is why you will see many opportunities from businesses and individuals needing transcription work completed.
