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 For example, suppose you have hundreds of handwritten historical documents that you want a digital copy of.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.

Must pickup receipts in Melbourne. I need help to enter my receipts on an Excel spreadsheet which will then be emailed to my accountant abroad. Receipts need to be categorized under each header for that specific month and some understanding of accounting is a plus. The business is small so this task should not take more than 1h/month + one face to face visit to handout/pickup receipts.

This was my first experience with Airtasker. Lena entered my business' accounting data on an excel spreadsheet. She was punctual and went above and beyond to organize all my receipts, delivering work on time. I highly recommend her.
