Pre-Check

Before we begin…

There are a few pre-requisites we need to check before we jump into the assessment.

Do you own the computer you will use?
Our clients value privacy and security. If you don’t own the computer you will be working on (a computer at an internet cafe, for example) then other people may be able to access the files you will work on, resulting in a breach of security and privacy.
 
 

Question 1 of 3

Do you have up-to-date anti-virus software running on your computer?
Due to the nature of the business, files and documents are shared between transcribers, clients and staff. Without up-to-date anti-virus software the risk of potential viruses and malware is always present. Even if you are on a Mac, we encourage you to run an anti-virus app to prevent the spread of viruses to Windows users.
 
 

Question 2 of 3

Do you have secure and reliable internet access?
Our clients value punctuality, privacy and security. If you don’t have secure internet access (such as a shared internet connection at a coffee shop) then other people may be able to access the files and data you will work on, resulting in a breach of security and privacy. A reliable connection is also required to ensure you are able to download the audio or video files assigned to you without issue and upload your transcripts when finished.
