To Be a Transcriptionist

I want to be a transcriptionist so I purchase Typesy. I want to know what typing speed should I aim?

Hi Archer,

I hope you are having a great day.

Typing speed of excellent transcriptionist ranges 80-100 WPM.

Thanks, and I hope that helped.

Hello, @archerhardling!

What a great goal! 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.

One of my favorite activities to practice typing skills (now that I am typing above average) 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! You’ll have to come back to update us on your progress!
