Of all the work at home jobs, the most searched for jobs and popular one is Transcription.
It is also the most flexible job. Many of my readers and friends have requested for a list of companies which are in general transcription.
General transcription is most easiest and comparatively open to larger workers than medical or legal transcription. This type of transcription does not need much of expertise as opposed to legal or medical transcription. There are many companies in general transcription hiring globally. The pay varies with experience.
Though most of the transcription companies hire U.S residents, there are some which recruit worldwide.
After conducting some research, I am listing all the general transcription companies hiring worldwide with or without experience.
