A leading operator of online courses wants to hire text transcribers to help make courses accessible to visually impaired individuals. You will watch lecture videos online from home or any other location, and, sometimes starting with an existing text file of subtitles (i.e., a transcript of the words that the instructor says out loud), you will produce a “video transcript,” which both corrects errors in the subtitle text, and additionally describe the relevant items appearing in the video. This way, visually impaired individuals (who are unable to see the lecture video) will be able to read your transcript, using either screen reader software or a braille printer, and understand the content of the lecture from that.
The material will sometimes be technical in nature. You won’t need to understand all of it, but you will need to pay close attention to be able to describe it accurately. This is highly detailed work. The documents you create should be in HTML, and for cases where data in the lectures is displayed in a table you’ll need to create an HTML table. You don’t need to do any fancy HTML formatting however; if you aren’t familiar with HTML, you’ll be able to quickly pick up everything you need to know. Any mathematical equations in the videos should be described using LaTeX, so prior knowledge of LaTeX would be helpful.
You will be paid at a rate of $20 per hour worked for completed video transcriptions on a per-video basis. Note that the hourly rate is based on the time you spend, not on the length of the video, so for instance if it takes you 60 minutes to transcribe 20 minutes of video, you’ll be paid for an hour of work. Successful applicants must be authorized to work on the US. Each video will typically be between 5 and 20 minutes in length, and you will be paid for completed videos, transcribed in an agreed-upon timeframe, usually 48 hours.
