      Pros

      stay away from this company

      Cons

      they don't pay, their editor do somthing wrong will say transcriptionist is wrong and they give you a low rating, also the editor will show you a different audio file with what you transcribed and give you a low rating, thus you don't get any money

      Pros

      - Build experience and get feedback - A variety of audio - Choose your own hours - Can get paid OK if you are picky with your jobs and if you're from a low-income country

      Cons

      - The work is not easy and the pay is pretty low even for the industry - Stretches of weeks without jobs, then almost too many to keep up with - Not very viable if you are from a higher-income country
