The thought of earning money through online typing jobs might seem odd at first. After all, text material that appears online has already been typed and it's not clear what someone might pay you to do. However, there are several general and specialty sites that offer online typing jobs, usually by transcribing dictated files.
Check typing job sites such as SpeakWrite. Users of these sites upload dictation files. Freelance typists access the files online and type the material for a set fee. Most sites require prospective freelancers to take an online typing test to demonstrate their speed and accuracy.
Check freelance sites such as Upwork and Guru by entering "typing" into the job-search box. Large online freelance sites typically have thousands of typing jobs listed. Other freelance sites include freelance.com and iFreelance. You have to register at each site in order to bid on available jobs.
Visit legal transcription sites such as Ace Federal or GMR Transcription. Transcriptions services generally cater to professional clients, such as law firms. You must be familiar with legal terms and court procedures for many of these jobs. Check for the "Careers," "Work for Us" or similarly-named section of the site to find information on online typing opportunities.
Check medical transcription sites like MedScribe. These companies specialize in transcribing medical text from dictated doctor's reports. Many medical transcribing services offer pay rates well beyond general typing jobs but require specialized training and experience. Check job requirements carefully before applying for a position as an online medical transcriber.
