Top Typist related questions

What questions should I ask a typist?

Some great questions to ask a potential typist include:

  • How does this role fit into your career plans?
  • Why are you interested in this position?
  • What’s your typing speed?
  • Can you work with minimal supervision?
  • How do you minimise the risk of errors?
  • Do you use any special software when typing?

If your line of work involves one kind of typing (e.g. audio typing or transcribing interviews), you could also ask the Tasker about their experience in that area. 

How fast can a typist type?

It depends. Average typists have speeds of around 43 to 80 words per minute (wpm), while more advanced ones can hit up to 120 words per minute. If your industry has somewhat time-sensitive tasks, you may want to book a Tasker with an above-average typing speed. Naturally, this might mean potential Taskers will have a higher asking rate, so be prepared to increase your budget. 

Can I have a confidentiality agreement with my typist?

Yes, you can definitely arrange to have a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) with the Tasker you hire. You can also state this in your task post so those who will apply will know about the NDA ahead of time. 

How can I minimise my errors when typing?

There are many ways to do this, including:

  • Getting a comfortable keyboard (as well as a comfortable desk and chair)
  • Maintain good posture
  • Use the correct finger positions
  • Use keyboard shortcuts
  • Slow down and try to be more mindful as you type. Only then should you think about speeding up again.
  • Keep practising!

Can a typist do other admin tasks?

It depends. If you specified in your task post that you’re looking for a typist who can also take on office admin work, and your budget has enough room for this. You and the Tasker you hire can agree on how much of the day is spent typing your inventory and how much time is spent looking over your books. 

How do I become a stenotypist?

To become a stenographer, you will typically need a high school diploma and training in stenography. This can come from a vocational school or community college. Some stenographers may also have an associate’s degree in court reporting. If you plan on becoming a court stenotypist, you may also need to obtain a licence or certification from your local authorities.

What do typing services include?

These can include writing down your business ideas, transcribing market research interviews, and keeping track of your growing inventory. 

Whether you need someone to catch your ideas as you spitball them, someone who can work through all the recordings that need transcribing, or an expert in data entry, Airtasker can help you find a freelance typist who can help. Here’s what you can expect when you book a typing service through our platform:

Copy typing

A copy typist encodes correspondence, reports, books, and other documents by using a printed or handwritten source. For example, suppose you have hundreds of handwritten historical documents that you want a digital copy of. 

In that case, your hired Tasker can help you put all these into Microsoft Word, Google Docs, or your own choice of word processing software. Or say you have books scanned into 1000-page JPEGs, and you want to be able to edit, highlight, or find words quickly. A copy typist will turn these photos into workable word documents for you. 

Speaking of different file formats, if you struggle with this daily, you may want to seek the help of a tech support specialist near you.

Audio typing

While a copy typist relies on written sources, a freelance audio typist works with audio sources. This can be your dictaphone, audio recordings from your smartphone, or even video interviews. These specialists have a good ear and quick hands and can save you a lot of time. No need to keep playing backwards and forwards to find that little nugget of an idea! Simply look over the document that your audio typist will give you. 

Data entry typing

Data entry clerks specialise in quickly and accurately documenting all the data you (or another source) will provide. These can include typing your inventory of items, the numbers and codes of various documents, or documents your office bookkeeper may need. They can also organise all this data into your desired format. 

Steno typing

Steno typing is a bit different from other typists since they use a particular keyboard based on sounds (instead of letters). The stenographer’s keyboard is also tiny compared to a regular “QWERTY” keyboard, so their hands don’t need to cover a lot of distance when working. This lets a stenotypist type exceptionally quickly and keep up with court proceedings, C-suite meetings that go a mile a minute, and other time-sensitive jobs.
