Maybe, but do you have the training you need to transcribe accurately? Typing fast and accurately is certainly one of the top qualities of any successful transcriptionist. However, transcription takes training and practice to be profitable.
5Isn’t most transcription work being outsourced overseas?
It is true that some companies are looking for the cheap way out and are outsourcing their work. But there are still a lot of reputable companies that depend on the American worker in order to keep their businesses going. It’s not easy for a native English speaker to understand and transcribe the English language, let alone a non-native. With the proper training, education, and application, you can be a part of keeping our work here in the U.S.A. 
6Voice Recognition Software is going to take over the transcription world?
It is true that VRS or voice recognition software has grown in the past years, but not even the most tech savvy companies have been able to get its accuracy to 88%. Human interaction is needed in the transcription process. Properly trained transcriptionists have an accuracy rate of 98%. Who wouldn’t hire a human transcriptionist over a software program?
