- Research skills
An outstanding research skill is a must-have for transcriptionists. Files on diverse topics are assigned to them every day. Having a great research skill is a big help for catching words or terminologies they’re unfamiliar with, as well as for researching crucial information and proper nouns like names, acronyms, companies, establishments, or brands in general.
- Ken attention to detail
A good transcriptionist is a keen listener and punctilious to small details that smart and pure verbatim transcriptions require to be transferred in print. For instance, the speaker said “like” five times, the audio transcriber should type exactly that – “…like – like – like – like – like…” – in the transcript. Utterances such as hmm, uhm, and uh-huh also perceives different notations imperative to market researchers. Laughter and pauses are also detailed in transcripts. Small details like these contribute to the meaning conveyed by the speakers in the audio, which is why transcriptionists should be particular with these as requested by the client.
- Focus and determination
To be a qualified transcriptionist, one must be focused and determined to getting the job done competently. A 1-hour file takes an average of 6 hours to transcribe. It’s not a child’s play. A transcriptionist should be able to neglect unnecessary distractions and concentrate in long periods of time whilst transcribing to ensure complete accuracy and timeliness of work.
