Hey there,

I'm looking for general information on audio typing, and if anyone has any, specific information on the TakeNote company.

One specific question I have is - how much typing time is an hour of audio?

Any general information would be helpful, too.

Thanks,

James

Hi James,

You can find out more about the company if you do a search for them on Google - their website should come up top.

They do a lot of transcripts, and note taking for clients. It seems a great job in that it's not 9-5 and you can get jobs as and when.

Ok - about your specific question, it depends on what you are taking notes for. If it is someone talking constantly and for example churning out a constant stream of thoughts then you could say a few words per second. Lets say around 200 words per minute. If it's a more relaxed environment it could be less.

I'm just thinking how many words you could say in a minute... probably a lot!!

If anyone has any more specific information to help James out let us know..

Good luck..
