Copy typing solution

I no longer offer a copy typing service as there is not a lot of call for it now. However, I recently had an enquiry for some copy typing. When I said I no longer provide this service, the innovative client dictated the work onto a digital dictation machine and was able to send the sound file to me via the internet. Problem solved!

One of the reasons I no longer take on copy typing is because a few years ago I agreed to do some copy typing for a student who sent me reams of paper and the print was so small I would have needed a magnifying glass if my eyes weren't so good. Needless to say, not a pleasant job.

Therefore, if you have need of copy typing and cannot find someone who provides that service, perhaps you might consider dictating the material onto a digital recorder. You can then send the sound file via the internet for transcription.
