Clark Fork Communications provides audio and video transcription as well as research and data processing to corporate, governmental, educational, legal, financial and non-profit clients. The company uses a workforce of home-based, freelance transcriptionists who set their own hours and availability. Turnaround times are generally same day for corporate work and three to five days for legal work.
Clark Fork Communications hires only U.S. citizens residing within the U.S. All applicants are tested and may be asked to provide references. Some government accounts require a full background check and fingerprinting before a transcriptionist is cleared to work on them. Home office requirements include high-speed Internet access, a high-quality headset, a compatible digital foot pedal and, for transcribing video files, a Start Stop Pedal Control System. Transcriptionists need to have specific programs including Express Scribe, Real Player, The Record Player, a File Transfer Protocol program such as Core or AceFTP, and Yahoo Messenger. Although most work requires Microsoft Word, some legal tasks require Word Perfect for word processing.
Corporate and legal transcription openings are available for independent contracting only and not for regular employment. Legal transcription compensation rates range from $.75 to $1.75 per transcribed page. Corporate transcriptionists receive from $.40 to $1.00 per audio minute transcribed. Thus compensation is based on completed work rather than on an hourly rate. Factors affecting compensation include the required turnaround time, the client and type of work, and the speed and accuracy of the transcriptionist.
