Given the type of transcription to work with, which one do you prefer: Medical, General, Legal?
I asked this question to Yahoo Answers, and this is the only answer I get.
General transcription is a very tough job when you compare with medical transcription. Why? Because in MT, if a patient comes with diabetes, the file will be discussed regarding diabetes only. In general transcription, the dictators or speakers can use a number of terms. There is also speedy dictation and in some files more than one dictator will be there in one audio file. There is a large chance of confusion.
In legal transcription, we have to transcribe for attorney’s, most of the dictations aren’t easy. There is no work gurantee in this field.
