Captioner in Work from Home
on 17 December 2021
It’s freelance work so you can work at your own pace.

The work is good for some extra earning but in no way will it cover your basic expenses. There will be time when there’s a lot of projects you can pick from but sometimes there’s none to caption. There’s a lot of trials and errors too when you first started learning so it’s best to consult forums first.

You cannot meet the targets due to the ridiculous grading system...

You have to meet a certain target in order to become a 'Revver'. However, the people that grade your work are other transcriptionists and the grading is, like one person said below, all over the place. What is acceptable for one person is not acceptable for another. I had extremely high grades, and one person graded my work extremely low and has now pulled my grade right down. I probably will not meet the targets now as when you get a higher grade your grade then only goes up one or two points. Don't bother trying to dispute the grade either because they will never be on your side. Additionally, you spend so much time transcribing a project for $6. It's ridiculous. I would have loved to have continued with Rev, if the grading wasn't so all over the place, and it was actually achievable to reach the desired grade. Last thing, there are hardly any jobs to claim either. When there is, you have to be extremely quick to claim a job or you miss out. It's truly a set you up to fail type workplace. I'll be taking my work to another company that values their workers, pays an acceptable rate, and doesn't set you up to fail with their grading system.

Poor quality, poor pay, rubbish company

The pay is minimal, it takes way too long to review audio and on some jobs make less than $5 per hour. Guidelines for transcription are not accurately monitored and what may be acceptable for one grader is different for another. Two poor gradings will have your account deactivated and there is no way to question a grading or account deactivation. Overall it’s a poor way for a company to be run.

Hours of time spend working form them and paid in cents

The review process is cruel and not very friendly people. Seems they want the task to be done for free. Would not recommend for any one to work there.

Not Worth It

Trust me - not worth your time. The decent paying jobs are almost inaudible so it takes forever to complete the transcription after several rewinds. You end up working for like $2-$3 per hour.
