This is a good time for taking up transcription projects because this is an era when we have booming audiovisual contents. For example, conversational programmes on YouTube might need subtitling service. And contents related to the work of law firms, hospitals and clinics also need transcription files as backup.
It is best if you have a pair of good headphones and a tranquil working environment for transcription work. You can get distracted if your office is noisier. Contrarily, you will enjoy higher productivity if you have a quiet office.
Cafes and crowded co-working spaces are apparently not the best choice. Work spaces that you screened and visited to confirm them to be quiet enough for transcription work, are always the better choices.
Of course, peace of mind is also very important, particularly in this era when the situation across the globe is not very stable. Most of the time I avoid taking up transcription projects, when I feel impatient and impetuous. But thankfully, I feel quite peaceful most of the time.
