10 seconds worked (average) per clip:
If a person did 375 clips an hour at $.03 the pay would be 11.25 an hour. Some are faster, some are slower, so the actual rate depends on your total clips completed per week. If you did more, your rate increases by every second you save.
You can do as many hours as you want until we run out of clips.
A little practice, and you can really kick it up. There will be
many extra hours of work. This is just an estimate at an average
pace of 375 clips per hour.

Transcription Guide (Detailed):
1. Choose valid or invalid. If a word is used that you can’t possibly spell, mark invalid. You should not have more than 5% invalid total clips.
Non-English words would be considered an invalid clip.
Example: “supercalifragglespaniel,” sounds cute, but it’s just not going to be
in any Scrabble dictinary. Just let it go.
2. Capitalize Proper Nouns (Names and Places)
No Arabic numerals (0-9) or standard . and ? punctuation.
Example (spoken): “Today it was 43.4 degrees in Abu Dhabi.”
becomes: “today it was fourty three point four degrees in Abu Dhabi”
NOTE: There is no dash in “fourty-three,” since we are not using punctuation.
Example (spoken): “It’s 18 miles to Graceland from grandma Irene’s house, I think.”
becomes, “it is eighteen miles to Graceland from grandma Irene’s house I think”
3. If you hear the speaker make sounds like “uhm, uh, err”, do not omit them, transcribe them as well as you can. NOTE: Punctuation is not used.
Example: “I umm, can’t remember where I left my wallet and keys.” becomes, “I umm can not remember where I left my wallet and keys”
4. Stuttering should be typed as spoken. Example: “I-I-Ice cream is delicious when it’s warmed to s-s-seventy-five degrees Fahrenheit!” becomes: “i i ice cream is delicious when it is warmed to s s seventy five degrees Fahrenheit”
5. Avoid spelling mistakes. Please be careful. You could be penalized for this. Do your best to make sure every word is correct.
Example (spoken): “Every one in the house was asleep.” Incorrect: “every one in the house was asleep” Correct: “everyone in the house was asleep”
6. Cut-off words should be typed to the closest syllable. If there is not at least a single syllable like, “wha, who, the, sub, din, you, etc.,” the entire clip must be marked invalid. Do not complete words that are not spoken.
