60 minutes in UK English to be transcribed – $12 – 24 hr deadline – SKILLED WORKERS ONLY – Upwork

This job is open to skilled candidates only with a proven track record on this site.

This job has a 24 hour deadline, but is a very easy job for someone with the required skills. Do not apply if you can't meet the deadline.

A high standard of written and spoken English language is required.

This is an audio with two speakers.

Due to the deadline you MUST:

1. Be able to show a record of transcription work in your profile.
2. Have a very good command of English – you simply will not be able to handle the audio otherwise.
3. Fast typing speeds (above 70 wpm ideally).
4. Transcription software such as Express Scribe.
5. A foot pedal to slow the voices down.

Clean verbatim required – i.e. every word except ums and ahs and stutters.


The use of voice recognition software is not allowed as the text makes no sense and takes too long to put right.

Candidates must be ready to start RIGHT NOW and deliver the final transcript within 24 HOURS of receiving the audio and template.

You will be required to check in with me EVERY FOUR HOURS during your working hours. If you cannot do this, don't apply for the work because the contract will simply be cancelled if there is no check-in.

The job pays a flat rate of $12 INCLUSIVE of oDesk fee. Bids higher and which do not include oDesk's fee in the $12 will be rejected, so don't waste your bids.

Budget: $10
