Are you a fast and accurate typist? If so, there are jobs that can use your skills. Here are a few typing jobs plus information on what’s required and how to get hired.

What Kind of Typing Jobs are There?

There are a number ways you can get paid to type. Here are a few:

Skills Required for Typing Jobs 

Some work from home typing jobs don’t require experience, but most require that you type fast and accurately. Some have a set minimum typing speed, and many will ask you take a typing test. If you’re not sure how fast and accurate you are, you can take a free typing test online. You can Google “free typing test” or try a site like TypingTest.com.

Pay for Typing Jobs

Many factors go into how much typists get paid. In general, the pay is usually around $10 to $15 per hour, however, that goes up with experience and quality. It is possible to earn as much as $75 per hour if you’re really fast (i.e. 180 to 220 wpm). Further, some types of typing jobs require additional skills, such as medical transcription or translation, that often leads to higher pay.

Pay isn’t always per hour (although in general the per hour rate will equate to what was mentioned above), but instead by word, keystroke or audio minute, which means the faster you type, the more you can get paid.

Note that most of these jobs are contract, meaning the companies don’t withhold your taxes. Don’t be afraid of this type of work though because it can offer some benefits that include more tax deductions that can lower you tax liability.

Work Schedule For Typing from Home

Work schedules in home based typing can vary. Some companies will ask for a regular schedule, but often, since it is contract work, you can work when you want as long as you get the work completed on time. Some positions ask specifically for evening work.

Equipment Needed for Online Typing Work

Needed equipment for typing jobs from home may vary slightly depending on the job and the company. Some of the common tools required include:

  • Computer with high speed Internet
  • Real-time Captioning soft-ware
  • Audio Playback
  • Digital Foot Pedal
  • Email
  • Word processing software

    Scoping is not court reporting! A scopist takes the reporter’s notes and basically transcribes and edits them. Then they go to a proofreader to finish the job by cleaning it up. Sometimes the court reporter does their own scoping and then sends it directly to the proofreader.

      Thank you for the clarification!

  5. Lauren says

    Getting started as a transcriptionist is a wonderful way to earn extra income, or to start your very own transcription company! Depending on your marketing skills, taking on your own clients and setting your own rates is another viable option. Learn more: Transcription Jobs for Beginners

    I would also stress that when you are working as any kind of typist, speed is not the most important thing when it comes to typing. At least not in the beginning. Focus on being accurate and speed will come, but you will want to train your fingers to hit the right keys first!
