    i think it was a month or two ago, someone emailed the requester and received a message that every month each person can do 40. i think it was a different requester though

    I don't understand, and will never understand, cognitive bias, and all that goes along with it. I am also TERRIBLE with grammar and such IE. nouns/adjectives/pronouns. That stuff just never "clicked" with me.

    hey
    did anyone else get rejected from SpeechTranscript "Help phones understand you when you shout! [label speech as shouting or not"? I just got 5 rejections and 3 of them are still pending, this has brought my ratings down real bad :/ I don't see what I was doing wrong so I say avoid maybe, as I did everything according to the training bit. But is it just me? Or did any1 else get rejected?

    I did a few, but they were all approved.

    You have to listen REALLY carefully on this one. If their voices go up even a smidge, I usually put "shouted". I didn't do a lot because I was kind of nervous about their judgments. Probably won't do many more unless there isn't much else.

    I didn't have any rejected and I've done a LOT of them. Try contacting the requester and see what happens. I think the most important thing to remember is it doesn't have to sound like yelling to be their definition of shouting. It's whenever someone uses a tone that is higher or louder than the previous clips. It doesn't have to be loud at all, just louder or higher than the first sound clips.

    No one does. It's Amazons way of trolling.

    It seems to be pretty random, TBH. Amazon doesn't list specific criteria and it's entirely at their discretion. I don't have it, but I also only have about 2700 HITs approved. There are people here who have 25k + HITs approved and still haven't been granted it.

    I currently have 187,722 HITs approved and don't have it. It's pretty much random. Most likely based on some sort of quality control of doing some certain HIT type of theirs.
