As some of our audio transcribers say …

“I’m a stickler for detail, always loved language and had done dictaphone typing before, so working as a contractor for Auscript made sense.”


“Working for Auscript at home suits me perfectly as I don’t like being curtailed by the 9 to 5, and I want the freedom to live wherever I want.”


“Some members of the public picture people sitting in court rooms. They’re surprised that I work from home and that I’m doing it with incredible digital technology backed by excellent tech support.”
