Audio typing HELP!Watch
speaking and having the computer type it (voice dictation)
but I think it's transcribing audio eg someone plays a tape/speaks and you have to type what you hear. Look on google but I think that's what it is. I call it transcription because it's from one format to another. Good luck.
That is basically what audio typing is, although they usually use a tape player with a footswitch, used to stop and start the playback so your hands are free to type. You could practice with a normal dictaphone though, if you want to blag your way in without having done a course (I'd give it a go!). The proof is in the pudding. You might find they'll test your ability before offering you the job, so get practising!!! Good luck.
I've got an interview tomorrow with this company. They want me to be able to audio type except I don't have any idea what the hell audio typing is. I can touch type fairly fast so do I need special training to audio type? I really want this job but I think I'm gonna make a fool of myself in the interview
Its quite a skilled profession, if a secratary from the type writer days applies for the job then you will probably have no chance as they would have formal training in this like my mum who used to be a medical secratary. You have to have a very fast typing speed as well as very high accuracy.
Obviously if youre trained in it youre gonna be a hellova lot better than someone who uses it for a laugh. Do some more research on the net then if your still feeling unsure about it. Soz i cant help.
Provided you type quite fast and can spell and punctuate, there's no reason why you shouldn't get the job. Hopefully, they'll give you a bit of time to practise with it to get into your swing, use this time to work out how to play and stop the tape
