If you have acquired legal experience, you will be marketable in a typing business
specializing in legal documents. Transcription can also be part of a business
service such as a secretarial/word processing service or office support service.
What you will need is a basic computer, word processing software and a printer
(if a printed copy of the transript is required). That's the easy part. The
ability to listen and type accurately is a must. So is familiarity with the
terminology used if you are transcribing for specialized areas like the medical
and legal profession. Accurate and timely completion of your projects will usually
result in repeat business. Your clients will generally come back to you when
they feel comfortable with you and your service standard.
