Slow, slow day for me so far.
Depends on your definition of "a lot", there were ~1,200 when I first saw leelu post about them.
What requester do you normally work with? I tried Claritrans, but their audio files won't download. Have you experienced this? Who do you recommend doing transcription for?
Do you agree with these inferences? (8 minute survey) ☑ View a HIT in this group

How do I contact MedCrowd? My qualification is at 70. Ugh.
Does anyone do transcriptions for SpeechInk? How hard is it, and is it worth it?
Ok...did I miss a lot while I was Thanksgiving shopping? Do I need to cry?
Holy moly, look at all these young'uns! ;-)
Here is the Speechink PM I sent a couple of people earlier:
Speechink is a very reliable requester, and pays nice bonuses, up to 50% of the HIT pay, depending on your accuracy. You'll need to take a qualification HIT for verbatim transcription, for example (these are the ones I do) and how you do on this will determine your initial rating, though you can take the qualification HIT up to three times, I believe.
I usually get around 95-100 percent accuracy, though sometimes certain reviewers seem to be more picky than they should. I would suggest listening to the preview of each HIT and making sure you can understand the accents, speech patterns, etc. of the speakers, because most any time I get a low score (below 95 for me) it has to do with me doing a HIT with that involves poor audio quality or very heavy accents.
You'll need to read the style guide and keep it handy for a while. The first few months, I went back over every transcript to make sure they were all grammatically correct, but now I simply listen and type, pausing after every sentence or so until the end, and then submit. (Make sure you have notepad or something open while doing the transcription and copy your work over every once in awhile, there is a save function but it doesn't always work correctly.)
Right now, you'll get paid around say, $1.13 for 4 minutes and 2 seconds of transcribed audio, but on this $1.13 you can make up to $1.69, including the bonus, though I usually make around $1.40 or so on these HITs on average. So, I can usually get between $5.60 and $8.40 an hour, though this varies a lot.
These HITs are very nice, if you enjoy transcribing, and you don't have to worry about rejections, unless you really mess up, you just need to keep your rating above 90, which isn't hard as long as you concentrate while you're transcribing.
Hopefully this has been helpful to you. Good luck in your endeavour.
Oh yeah....and MedCrowd got back to me (did I mention how awesome he is? Only like 30 times yesterday....) and for some reason the system marked my quals wrong, so he had to fix it. Definitely email him. (Go into your dash, go to a day you worked for him, find a HIT, click "MedCrowd")
Anyone here do the Speechtranscript shouting HiT's? There's a lot of them and at 6 cents, they don't take me -too- long, especially when nothing else is available.

What a day on surveys. Did you try to open the site? On one of those Hits I couldn't get the link to open. Emailed the requester.
1 review good TO (5) all but comm which is no data
And no way to verify the work. I call BS.
Be Aware this is the same requester for ALLClear
