As a transcriber, you are able to work on your own schedule day or night. Pretty simple process to learn procedures for scoring especially for those with a background as a teacher. When work is plentiful and the pay rate is high, great supplemental money can be made.
When work is sparse and the pay rate is low, it's not work the time and effort. Also, not available to work as a transcriber in states such as California now due to the change in the definition of an independent contractor.

Literably makes it easy to provide transcription and scoring. Pay is easy - every Friday to my PayPal account!
Sometimes there isn't any work available when I have the time to work.

I enjoy transcribing for Literably because they provide transcription services for educators and I feel I am making a positive difference. The pay fluctuates but as you gain experience you will also get better at transcribing which will make you faster at scoring. The company wants their transcribers to succeed and they have been helpful, motivating, and positive. I have been transcribing for over 3 years and I enjoy the flexibility and extra money.
This is not what I would call an "easy" job. It requires concentration, focus, a great command of the English language, and the ability to follow instructions to the (literal) letter. The training transcriptions are challenging and you really have to be able to distinguish between a "sh" and a "ch" sound and be able to transcribe accurately even with noise in the background. If you are willing to put time in and train, you'll get it. If you are looking for fast, quick money, this isn't for you.23

You receive pay every week which is helpful.
Work isn't always available. There can be long periods without work.

Easy to set own hours, transcription segments are short so can be done any time. There are sometimes price surges when there is a lot of work.
Not always work available, even during school hours
