Work Experience Strada Communication, Vancouver, WA Staff Transcriber, Mar 2016 - Nov 2017
I provided both remote and onsite TypeWell transcription, primarily for college students as well as at company meetings and public events.
• Teamed and solo assignments
• Communication with the student to adjust the transcription style as needed
• Ability to troubleshoot technical issues quickly in the moment
• Always strived for clean, accurate transcripts, even with fast speakers Additional communication access work I did at Strada: Captioning
Produced high quality, readable captions from start to finish: transcription, editing, line breaking, and final timecoding.
Converted textbooks to screen reader format for blind users. The process included image description, technical formatting to build a logical and useful table of contents, and cross- checking against the original book for accuracy.
About me Transcribing combines my long-standing love for typing (actually not joking) with a need to do meaningful, challenging work. The mixture of attentive listening, quick thinking, and accurate typing is something I've personally come to enjoy. It's mechanically satisfying work, and the fact that it's all in service of students working to achieve their own goals makes it all the better. I learned a lot during my time at Strada, and after a small hiatus since they closed their doors in late 2017 I'm ready to return to the world of TypeWell. Thank you for any consideration!
