Thank you for your interest in typing and analyzing files for Quicktate and iDictate!

Who we are

Quicktate transcribes voicemail messages, memos, letters, legal files, medical files, recordings of phone calls, conference calls and other audio files.

Quicktate also audits, summarizes, evaluates and analyzes audio recordings and phone conversations.

Some audio files, like voicemail messages, may average just 2-3 minutes in length, while other recordings may be significantly longer, perhaps several hours.

IDictate transcribes all types of files, except for voicemail messages.

What we require of our contractors

  • Accurate spelling and punctuation.
  • Individuals that know how to follow instructions.
  • Typists that can listen to voice files and accurately type what they hear.
  • Experienced and professional transcriptionists.
  • Typists with their own equipment, supplies, facilities (office/ work space).
  • Honesty, integrity and reliability.
  • No convictions of a felony or misdemeanor on your record. (Do not proceed if you have ever been convicted)
  • Take a typing quiz for each language or specialty you are interested in (examples: English, Spanish, French, Medical, etc.). You may also be given an opportunity to be tested to analyze audio files.
  • Take a test to ensure you understand Quicktate's requirements.
  • Depending on how you scored on your Quicktate typing test, you may qualify to be tested to also offer your services to iDictate.

As an Independent Contractor, you can select your own hours that you want to work. You can work as few, or as many hours as you want. We are open for business 24 hours/ day; 7 days/ week.

Make sure you write down your typist account username and password during signup.
  • When you create your typist account, you are agreeing to abide by our strict confidentiality requirements and code of ethics (outlined below). You will also be providing us with references. You should use NON-family members as your references.

I acknowledge that I decide when, how much, or how little I work, and that I set my own hours.

I am responsible for my own continuing and recurring liabilities or obligations for my work facilities (rent, mortgage payment, utilities, computer repairs, etc.)

My ability to make a profit, or risk of suffering a loss is based on the relationship between my income and my expenses.

If and when I am offered an assignment, I am free to accept or reject it. If I accept it, I acknowledge that Company cannot tell me how to do the work.

Each file that I am offered is considered one assignment.

I acknowledge that company cannot control or direct the order or sequence that I do my work.
