I am always in awe at the search engines/search phrases that find me.
transcription irritate my ears?"
1. If referring to listening to the vulgarity and obscenities that go
hand-in-hand with recorded statements, etc., and worried that you will go deaf as your parents always warned -- it
2. If you are referring to irritation because of putting the "ears" or earphones into
your ears or the need to push them further and further in when trying to make out a word or phrase, then yes, you will probably
experience irritation. There are all sorts of earphones -- buds that go inside your ears, earphone that only cover your ears,
bulky headsets that completely cover your ear, noise-canceling headsets. Heck, you even have the choice of bypassing earphones
and playing the audio as loud as you want and irritating any animal or person within hearing distance.
3. If worried
about radiation, you don't have to worry until you begin glowing green in the dark of night.
that even has to ask the question of transcription irritating their ears, has NEVER transcribed any kind of audio dictation/transcription
in their life -- but now they want to be an up-and-coming transcriptionist. [end of blog]
me: No. I work independently and don't hire or place subcontractors. I'm also not a temporary employment office.
caller: Yeah, well, I found you on the Internet -- Carolyn's word processing.
me: I come up under
many search phrases.
caller: Uh, um, do you hire anyone?
me: I protect my client's (and
their client's) privacy and confidentiality. As I said earlier, I do the work myself and don't sub or farm my client's work
out. I have been self-employed and working independently without the need of hiring employees and/or subcontractors
since 1992. I don't see that changing anytime in the future.
caller: Do you think that will change?
me: What will change -- the way I handle privacy and confidentiality or subcontractors/employees?
caller: Well, everything.
me: tired of this cat and mouse chase, I simply clicked my phone shut without
saying anything further.
This person has obviously seen my web page. I haven't actually
counted the number of times my site states that I don't use subcontractors. But then again, why bother to read -- when
you can't even get your head out of the sand to ACTUALLY hear.
Transcription is not just typing -- it is hearing
and listening. Even if I were buried with work and couldn't see the light, I would never consider contacting this individual.
My husband has a saying that it is hard to see where you're going when your head is up your A$$ --- apparently, it is also
hard to hear!
And this one phone conversation is the reason I do ALL the work myself and don't use subcontractors
or farm out my client's work -- can you undestand H-E-L-L-0? [end of blog]
With a typing speed of 120 wpm, Carolyn Bodley began
offering independent contractor/secretarial and transcription services to the Denver metro legal community in 1992.
I am not a court reporter or medical transcriptionist and I don't
videotape depositions -- I'm strictly a legal transcriptionist which means putting spoken words on paper. All my transcripts
contain a certification stating that to the best of my knowledge, belief and ability, the audio/video I received has not been
altered in any way, and the transcript is true, accurate and complete. I have never been advised that
a court rejected one of my audio or video transcripts. If my transcript is rejected by the court, you will
be reimbursed in full for my services. Because I certify that the transcript is true and complete, the entire audio/video
must be transcribed--I am unable to transcribe "just a portion" that you need.
that your transcripts will be typed confidentially, accurately and with attention to detail at a fair price.
Discovery is often turned over in a format other than hard copy.
This discovery includes, but is not limited to, recorded telephone conversations, police interviews, depositions, investigations,
witness statements, and more. The audio and video "words" need to be put to paper,
and your already overworked legal staff often don't have the skills, equipment, the inclination or the time.
Discovery is often the deciding factor of whether a
case goes to trial. Most of us hear, but do we listen? Recently I transcribed a video that had been viewed and listened to
several times and by several people before I transcribed it. There was a one sentence statement that not one person caught
-- this one sentence was not the only reason the case was dismissed one day before trial--however, it carried quite a
bit of weight -- and I'm the only one that "heard" it. Had the video
never been transcribed, how many other words would never have been heard?
