Please give us some ideas on how to earn through typing?
You may start by choosing some part time jobs online. You can work in the comfort of your own home and you can study at the same time. Just choose what is applicable for you and what job fits your skill. Here are some online jobs that you can try: Virtual Assistant, Content Writer, Social, Media Specialist, Web Developer, Online Tutor, Video Editor, Business Admin, Graphic Artist, Online Survey Jobs, Blogging, Data Entry Jobs, Captcha Jobs, Freelancing. There are many online sites as well by which you can find these jobs. But before going online, you should be equipped with the necessary tools and skills. Tools would include desktop computer, camera and good internet connection. Skills such as social media expertise, admin jobs, computer and good typing skills are also needed depending on the position you are applying for. The basic skill that you should learn though is touch typing because some employers would require a specific speed for you to qualify. Need not worry about this because there are lots of typing program for you to choose from. One good example for this is Typesy. So if you might want to go digital now, might as well develop the necessary skills as early as possible.

Hello there, @albywalmsley!
If you are a really strong typist, check out the possibility of becoming a transcriptionist. Work is relatively easy to find online and relies solely on one’s typing ability. In general, typing at or above 57 WPM is deemed above average, so that should give you an idea of just how well a transcriptionist needs to be able to type. Much of the work out there involves transcribing audio files into text files, and a lot of that involves typing out speech in real time.
One of my favorite activities to practice is to type along to speech. This could be typing along to a conversation, a song, a movie, etc. It’s a good way to practice typing but also focuses in on the needed ability for a transcriptionist to actively listen while transcribing.
Wishing you the best of luck with whatever you do!
