Practicing is the only way to get skilled at any type of transcription

  • Become familiar with the transcription process, transcription software and transcription foot pedal.
  • Get used to listening to audio and typing at the same time.
  • Improve your listening skills, accuracy, speed and overall transcription skills.
  • Increase your typing speed. The higher your speed is, the more work you’ll be able to produce and the more money you’ll be able to make.

But how can you practice before getting work?

If you have looked around for formal general or business transcription training, you know there isn’t any. So… how are you supposed to learn general and business transcription and prepare yourself to get work?

Practicing using a wide range of Practice Files
will improve your transcription speed and skills in no time!

Practicing transcription with real-life practice files is the very best way to:

  • Prepare yourself for transcription work.
  • Improve your accuracy, speed, and overall transcription skills.
  • Develop an ear for transcription.
  • Become familiar with transcription conventions and formats.
  • Learn to follow transcription instructions.
  • Find out what mistakes you are making so you can stop making them.

Now you can practice transcription and acquire experience as a general and business transcriptionist with real-life dictations and transcripts!

Introducing real-life general and business transcription practice files.

You can find medical and legal transcription practice files on the Internet, but there are few practice files for general transcription or business transcription.

General or business transcriptionists transcribe anything that is not medical or legal. General transcription includes business, academic, insurance and media transcription.

General transcriptionists get work from a wide variety of businesses, individuals and organizations and transcribe a wide range of topics, including interviews, single person dictations, meetings, focus group discussions, presentations, conferences, teleseminars, voicemails, podcasts and more.

You must practice to become a successful transcriptionist. But how can you practice?

Since general and business transcription are quite different from medical and legal transcription, using medical and legal practice files is not the best way to develop general or business transcription skills.

That’s why I made sure to carefully select real-life general and business audio practice files and transcripts to help you practice and learn general and business transcription. I have requested special permission to make these files available to you.

After practicing with these real-life audio files,
you’ll feel more confident in your skills.
You’ll be ready to pass transcription tests and
work for transcription companies and clients.

Who can benefit from these practice files?

  • Anyone who wants to learn general or business transcription.
  • New and aspiring transcriptionists.
  • Medical and legal transcriptionists who want to expand their markets by offering general transcription.
  • Medical transcription students who want to make money during their 6-12 months of medical transcription training.
  • General, medical and legal transcriptionists who want to improve their transcription skills, speed, and accuracy.
  • Transcriptionists who have been inactive for a while and need to refresh their skills.

Real-life dictations and transcripts

These audio files and transcripts have been dictated and used by real business people. They were not created by actors as most practice or student files are. You need to practice with the type of work you’ll actually be getting from clients! This is a unique opportunity to practice with audio files that transcriptionists were paid to transcribe.
