I researched various online transcription programs, but I questioned the quality of the programs. This program for General Transcription by Zoom Transcription is finely crafted and worth the investment. When I began the course I had my fears, but the course has a plethora of information, very detailed and thorough and Janet has been an extremely patient and resourceful guide. I am grateful that such an excellent program exists and that it is reasonably priced. Now, I am very confident and I am looking into beginning the Legal Transcription program next. Denise L.

Thank you, Janet, for creating your wonderful transcription course. I retired a couple years ago and recently decided that I needed to do some part time work to help pay those darn bills! However, as a caregiver, and also someone who didn’t want to have to get dressed up again for a job, I decided it would be wonderful if I could work from home.
So, I began exploring various ideas and opportunities. I happened to see your course being praised on another website, so I thought I’d check it out. Your free introduction gave me enough information to decide that I definitely wanted to sign up. So, I plunged right in! I had done a little transcription several years ago using the old style microcassette machines, and I was surprised to find out that now it can be done easily online, and that I can have an up-and-running business in a short period of time that pays well, and with very little investment -- except for maybe a foot pedal and earphones.
Even though I had done some transcription in the past, without your course, I’m sure I would have fuddled around, not knowing all the latest techniques and shortcuts that help make a profitable business. I’d have not known about time coding or the difference between “strict verbatim” or “standard verbatim” transcription. And without the help, guidance, and tips from the course, I’d have probably gotten frustrated and given up if trying to start a transcription business on my own.
Your course is not only great for anyone who has previous transcription experience, but also for someone who has never done transcription. If a person can type well and has a decent command of the English language and grammar, this course should give them what they need to get started with a profitable business in a fairly short period of time. And the fact that you are so accessible to answer any questions is a real bonus!
I am a homeschooling mom to six cute kiddos and wife to a wonderful husband. I found this transcription course when looking for a way to supplement my husband's income. I was excited to find something I could do that would use some of the skills I've improved upon while teaching my children. The course was an easy read and provided me with exactly what I needed to break into the transcription business. I am immensely grateful for the 60 + sample files that gave me the opportunity to learn from my mistakes. I would not have wanted to make the same mistakes on paid work. The knowledge and experience I'm gaining from transcription is helping me to better teach my kiddos as well!

I purchased this general transcription training course recently to help me get started in a new career and I couldn't be happier with my decision. This is an *extremely* comprehensive course. There's NOTHING out there like this (believe me, I looked) and it has ALL you need to get started! I highly recommend this course!

If you are looking to get into transcription, this is a great course to buy. It gives you a true look at the business and what you are getting into! I bought and completed the original course in Jan 2010 and by May 2010, I was hired by several companies, and have as much work as I could ever want. In my opinion, this is worth every penny.

I have purchased a General Transcription Training course written by Janet Shaugnnessy, finding this to be one of the best programs I could have ever put my money towards. I have checked out and paid for several other work-at-home programs that never worked for me other than taking my money. I have recently purchased this course and find it to be exactly what I have been looking for in advancing myself in a career. If you are looking for a work-at-home program that has an easy walk-through description and helps providing all information in beginning your own business, this is for you. Working from home has been one of my passions and could be yours also. If you are a college student, or stay at home mom, or just tired of the rat race of going out working in the work force, this program can work for you. I am very pleased with this product and hope that you will not waste time investing in programs that don't work, like I have in the past. Seriously, this program is for anyone that wants to make serious cash whether it is part time or full time. This program is well worth the money. Thank you Janet for leading me into the right direction for my career and success.
I purchased the transcription training on when it was onDVD. I loved the mini course! It maps out everything that you need to
know as a general transcriptionist.
I am excited to get going on the course. You're an awfully nice lady, so caring...I plan to post a very positive review of the course for a consumer website that I write for. I'll email you with a link to it when I do.
I purchased the course and…HOLY COW! This program is every bit as comprehensive as most programs out there costing in the $2,000 range! Your General Transcription course is well worth $1200. Had I spent that much on it, I'd not have felt ripped off.
I highly recommend General Transcription: Theory and Practice! I had never transcribed anything before taking the course; however, I found the course to be a simple, quick process while giving a thorough understanding of general transcription. Janet was great throughout the whole process and was available to answer all of my questions. Less than one month after completing the course, I had already been hired for my first job!
