The Day I Met A Transcriber From San Diego

I knew a lady who worked transcription San Diego for her job. I had no idea what her job really was, so I asked her. She told me that she took verbal information and input it into a computer. I was like, what are you talking about? She said companies hired her to do this because they wanted an assortment of services for their projects. Some people wanted you to fix noise in their voice, people in her company fixed that. Some people wanted you to edit their information and fix grammatical errors. She told me this was one of the important aspects of her particular job. She said people like President Obama used plenty of um's and ah's when they talked. Her job was to take those out and make a speech sound better. It took me awhile, but I finally understood her job.

She also told me there are people who want your to actually rewrite their work. This is quite a project at times because some people write or talk very poorly. After we talked for awhile, I was impressed with her job. I had no idea how many people need transcription services. She told me, she actually went to college to learn her career. She began in a doctor's office, listened to what he said on voice and transcribed it into files on his computer. This way, the doctor could save a lot of space. He kept all his files safely online in case he needed them in the future. She said one day, there was an opportunity for her to move to sunny California. She always wanted to go to San Diego, she took the job. She spent seven years working with a company and was on a two week vacation to Orlando.

I love to meet people, they are very unique. When you really talk to people, you learn things you never thought were possible. I remember the old doctor's offices filled with file cabinets. The patient's files were listed in alphabetical order. How things have changed over the years. Some doctors still use these kind of files, but many have their files transcribed to save room and make their jobs easier. Who knows what the future in technology will bring us.

This is a sponsored post however, all the points and views are my own.
