If you're looking for high-paying positions for transcribers, then you're in the right place. You've probably already heard of transcription sites such as Scribie, but sites such as this won't allow you to earn a reasonable wage. Scribie is great for a small, supplemental income when you have nothing better to do, but other than that, it's just not worth it.
Today, I'd like to focus on some of the higher paying transcription companies that offer part-time and full-time positions from home. Many of the companies listed require that you're an experienced transcriber and that you have knowledge of legal and medical terminology. You may have to provide proof of your expertise, whether in the form of a certification, degree, or past job experience.
If you're searching for online general transcription jobs, then this might not be the post for you. It's unlikely that you'll find a general transcription position that pays a high hourly or CPL rate unless you have several years of solid experience and knowledge of specific terminology (medical, legal, media, etc.), so keep that in mind.
Transcript Divas is a reputable transcription company and they're looking for experienced, reliable transcribers. English must be your native language, and you must be able to deliver work on time. Attention to detail is important. Clients are the most important part of Transcript Divas, so providing them with the high-quality services they deserve is necessary.
You must have at least a year of solid experience as a transcriber (including face-to-face meetings, one-to-one interviews, focus group discussions, and telephone interviews). You must be availble during the weekday and must live in the United States.
Payment is aimed to "beat the average hourly rate for a medical transcriptionist working in the United States," according to the Transcript Divas website. This might range anywhere from $11 to $17 per hour.

SpeakWrite hires legal and general transcribers (it doesn't seem they are seeking general transcribers at this time, but bookmark their site and check back). You must have your own equipment (foot pedal, headphones, printer, plus specific software - see website). SpeakWrite transcribers earn 1/2 cent per word, so depending on typing skill, you could earn upwards of $12 per hour.
