Looking for someone (or a team) to transcribe audio files. Must be able to communicate through SKYPE. This project will be a test of your ability. I have hundreds of audio files. First, they need to be transcribed word for word (folder 1). Next, edited (folder 2), and third, organized (folder 3).
For this particular project a transcriber need only to transcribe (it is just a test of your ability). If a transcriber can do all three steps then that would be a good thing.
Price must be kept low, but when I get paid, more can be paid.
This project is for those who have more time than money. I have over 500 audio files and a $1,000 budget. I need to get as many files transcribed as possible. I will then pay a lot more to get them edited and organized. This is a long term relationship with someone who enjoys the topic: Devotion to the Welfare of Humankind/Peace/Team World. I have been recording my thoughts and ideas on this topic for over four years, and I will continue for years to come.
I hope to receive grant money in the future for my research, but that is the future, not now. If you do not use SKYPE then please do not respond. The subject is philosophical in nature and will need clear communication in order to avoid misunderstandings. This is a labor of love, so if you care more about money then people or peace, then I really do not want you on my team. You can type HiiG into yahoo video search to see some videos and get an idea of what I am doing.
Here are a few sample audio files. Files can run from 1mb to 30mb. Sometimes I record for a few minutes or for an hour or so. The average may be around 10mb.
I am willing to pay a small amount for samples if that is what it will take to find the right person for the job.
These audio files are just the tip of the iceberg. I have stacks of notebooks and research material that have to be dealt with. It is a huge project.
I see this as a great opportunity for someone who is interested such a topic. The sample files are about creating a World-Wide Human Internet, accelerating human evolution, changing the polarity of the Collective World Mind, the purpose of life, unification and peace, and much more. It is a study in human nature and why people do what they do.
Those who see this work as just another job to make money, well, I hope they look else where because I am really tired of dealing with such people.
Here are a few more files to help get the wording and spelling right.
Some people sent me samples that had absolutely no structure or plan. One sample was one long paragraph. Can you imagine anyone wanting to edit 500 audio files transcribed in such a manner? I am looking for someone who can prepare material for the next phase, which is editing; then organizing.
There has to be an identification system. Most files were numbered by the digital recorder and I have no idea what is in them, and neither will the person who organizes them. A short description should be made to identify the content of a file. Whoever edits this material will benefit from the thoughtfulness of the word for word transcriber.
One person structured the transcriptions almost like an anthology. Everything was broken down into meaningful sentences (no long paragraphs).
I've never done anything like this before so I don't know how a professional transcriber prepares material, but I will know what I like when I see it.
No one has yet SKYPED me! prof.tim
This is a lot of work for a little money, but in the long run there will be a big payoff. If you like the subject, well, there are some very exciting ideas tucked away in these files. Enjoy them. I just spent days organizing the audio files. Those who are really interested I can send them a list of topics that I talk about.
Here is a file I revived as a sample.
I need a good structure for transcriptions at the start of this grand project.
I know I don't want a file transcribed in one long paragraph or even a few paragraphs. This must be a professional job; and I am not even sure what that means. I am looking for the person(s) who demonstrate good form, as well as, accuracy and speed.
The files must be identified; and the contents of a file must be identified in a short and sweet synopses.
There are over 500 audio files!!! Think of the persons doing the next phases of the process: Phase one; word for word. Phase two; editing. Phase three; organizing. Phase four; writing.
If someone has a good idea, well, I am listening.
