Voice Recordings

Everything you require, you probably already have in your hand: your smartphone. The biggest advantage is that you can work these jobs completely independent of the time of day, or the place you find yourself. Use those irritating commercial breaks when watching television, or boring wait times while commuting to simply record single words or short sentences. Different content will be requested, depending on the project. 

Audio Transcription

Transcriptionists listen to audio files and convert them into written language. They’re often heard, but rarely seen, although they play an important role in today’s world of technology and communication. The most important skills you will need to become a successful freelance transcriptionist are strong listening skills, excellent grammar, knowledge, good typing skills, and an ear for audio.

Data Categorization

Audio segmentation is a process in which human listeners can distinguish spoken words from background noise, music, and silence. By labeling what you hear, you help create a database that can be used to improve speech recognition software. Audio annotation is a necessary step in making voice-control technology more natural for consumers. If Siri isn’t always able to understand what you’re saying, it might just be because someone hasn’t labeled all of her training data yet!
