    I haven't had any issues with editing, at this point I think I've probably done 15-20 of the transcriptions and my rating is still at 98.Hopefully it stays that way.

    Tons of Home Inspection transcriptions/review posted today. I managed to make about $10 after I got home from work at $5, about $9 of that was SpeechInk. Very nice surprise, I don't expect to make much Monday-Friday anymore now that I'm at the office those days. Thank you SpeechInk.

    did anyone here ever taking the test for video tagging?

    is learning all of that worth doing the test - the accuracy rate required is incredibly high and things are very strictly ruled - but the gosh darn rates seem really good. would an hour video be done in a few hours?

    It just depends on how fast you type and if you've got a video player that you can start and stop using hotkeys or a foot pedal, which I don't think express scribe does or at least the version I have doesn't. I can do one hour of audio in three hours, but I haven't done one of these yet for them but the rates seem a bit low to me. If it's not at least .50 per audio minute, I tend to pass on it, but that's just me

    yeah, when i break it down by audio minute it's about .40...and that seems really good until i think of all the formatting issues/rules that go with the video tagging for those HITs. It's not just speaker tokens.

    I think I'll pass for a while longer.

    Anyone more experienced with the home inspection transcripts, should we hyphenate right-hand and left-hand side?

    That's how I've been doing it, but a few times it's been corrected to right hand, and today while reviewing, I noticed other people leave out the hyphen. I put it in, but now I'm having second thoughts about it.

    The insurance style guide says to hyphenate, but the inspection guide doesn't seem to mention it.


    Thanks!

    I leave it in when I review. The few corrections I have made is when people don't capitalize brand names, or "A working glock on the wall" changing glock to clock

    I always put in the hyphen for left-hand, right-hand.. that is how it's supposed to be and I've yet to have it corrected. I have had very silly stuff that is clearly in the style guide corrected [my favorite was the 21, 4, whatever - the grader went thru and changed them all to spelled out numbers] but when that happened I quickly sent them a message thru the hit in my dashboard and got it corrected.

    Thanks Scott and Turkalicious. I'll follow your lead and hyphenate those words.

    @Scott. I did one completely wrong where I thought they were reading a list of action figures on a shelf or something. The audio said Picasso, flamingo, penguin, sausage dog.
    I found out that Flamingo Penguin Sausage Dog is a title to one of his artworks.

    I'm getting rather irritated, because I submitted a video transcription and tagging hit via e-mail, per her instructions, to Priscilla almost a month ago, and she still hasn't told me how to get paid. I've called the phone number she gave me, and it sends me straight to voicemail every time. It's made me very skittish about accepting SpeechInk hits at all. Does anyone know if there's a supervisor above Priscilla that I can get a straight answer out of?
