Hi. I know there are already lots of threads on this subject but I can't find a recent one regarding what software is required to start transcribing audio files from home (please feel free to point me in the right direction though!). I have an internet connection, Windows 7 OS and MS Office (albeit the 2003 version, but can get a newer one if necessary). It seems from the companies I have investigated (Dict8, Accuro, Sterling) that they download some kind of software of their own? However, I would like to work for more than one company so as to ensure plenty of work and wonder if I would have to have several programmes running on my computer, taking up a lot of space, or whether there is generic dictation/transcription software that can be purchased so as to make one programme compatible with several software programmes at the other end. I am not in anyway a techi so forgive me if I have missed the obvious. I would be grateful for any help or advice.
