Of the many things I love about having joined SyncScript, the one I enjoy the most is that it’s given me an opportunity to earn money virtually anywhere I have internet access. Whether I’m at home or visiting another city, I can always get work done without missing out on events important to me. I’m also a fan of the flexibility SyncScript provides in allowing me to select the days I work each week. I get to plan my work around my life instead of the other way around. In addition, the SyncScript team does an awesome job of communicating with and supporting its transcribers whenever questions arise or assistance is needed. I really appreciate the care put into ensuring everything runs smoothly for everyone on board. Overall, SyncScript is an accommodating company that I’m happy to be a part of and would recommend to anyone looking for work to suit their independent lifestyle.
As a graduate student it is so hard to find a job that can fit into my hectic schedule. SyncScript allows for the flexibility I need and offers an interesting and unique way to earn extra income. The staff are incredibly friendly and extremely understanding of our busy lives and the process couldn’t be easier.
SyncScript provides a lot of resources to help us with our speed and accuracy (manuals, tips, and monthly webinars), and you can always ping them directly with questions. They’ve also created a friendly environment on Slack where the transcribers can chat with them – and each other. I’m very happy working for them and hope to continue to do so for many years to come!
