Before this course, I didn't know it was possible to make more than a decent earning from transcription and captioning. Before taking the course, the whole concept seemed complex. But I love how the course was very thorough in how it broke down transcription and captioning and explained every point clearly. It used very relatable examples that made it easier to understand. Also, the fact that they had video formats of the lessons, made it easier for me to learn. I could be doing a different task, while still going through the course, which was a plus. It's been a dream come true working full-time as a transcriptionist and earning a full-time income from it.
