How do you apply for this kind of work Jon? When I search on the Opportunities section I can only see "Web Search Evaluator" and "Crowdsourcing"

Hi Jon

I filled in the application to join the talent network - it said sending a CV was optional do I didn't and it hasn't asked me to.

I had an email but not inviting me to do any particular work. Basically a welcome and 'view all jobs'. There were some transcriber ones there but they wanted Australian/New Zealand English speakers. Saw the Web Search Evaluator roles on another page.

Guess it's a case of sitting to wait and hear now?

Correct-a-mundo

Are there any tests you can do when you login to quality for transcribe type work?

I decided to re record the first 130 just in case. I'm over 200 now, leaving them to upload whilst I get a drink.

I've had odd payments from then before, definitely under $50 so I hope it is okay.

done it, didn't take more than 20 minutes to do

i remember my methods from last time.. it's all about the clicking of the mouse

say word
CLICKCLICK
say word
CLICKCLICK

you get those 2 clicks to be as quick as possible to close the recording on one utterance and then beginning of another and you can rattle this thing out in double speed

Just realised

I may be able to invite some Shedders into this ;)

The deadline for this project is 11pm tommorow (22/7), local UK time. In addition, people who complete the task today and with high quality may be invited to further rounds, or to further opportunities being paid to recruit others to the task.

I have emailed them and asked ;)

Oops, didn't read the instructions and did A-D sheet. Luckily it coincided with my last name :).

haha yeah i've never seen them do that before for the past tasks

£8 for 20 minutes work is pretty tidy, shall see if I get sent more to do

I do feel like a moron doing it though, that never changes

OK GALAXY

Just checked my email and I'm invited on this too. I appreciate the smaller chunk of work TBH, last time I tried it on a smartphone and the browser crashed :eek:

Never do it on a smartphone

Always PC

I had the same experience as you and learned that lesson quick smart!

Definitely! The extra couple of quid they were offering was what made me do it...
