Career opportunities for audio transcribers

Queensland-born global company Auscript celebrates five years of servicing the Queensland courts in 2018 and we’re going ‘behind the scenes’ to talk with one of our audio transcribers who work remotely from the courtroom and are key to delivering our industry-leading transcription service.

Alison White has been a court audio transcriber for 17 years, starting in Cairns at the State Reporting Bureau (SRB) – which was the in-house transcription arm of Queensland’s Department of Justice and Attorney-General.

In February 2013, Auscript was appointed the exclusive provider of court recording and transcription services across Queensland. Around this time, Alison moved to Ipswich (near Brisbane) and successfully applied for a position at Auscript.

Since the awarding of the contract, Auscript has created career opportunities for 232 Queenslanders, including former SRB employee, Alison, whose work has adapted alongside her lifestyle.

“I love the flexibility of my job and working from home,” she says. “I simply work around my own schedule.”

“And the great thing is that it doesn’t matter where I am, as long as I have a computer and internet connection. So there’s always the option to relocate again,” she says.

Pride is an important by-product of Alison’s work and skills and she adds:

“I’m proud of the work I do and that I can present an accurate transcript with integrity.”

Auscript has supported flexibility for close to a decade with audio transcribers working from their homes, geographically dispersed around the country and world.

“The Auscript advantage is our local network of highly-skilled court reporters, stenographers and audio transcribers – which Alison is a part of – who work every day to deliver quality transcripts on-time to our clients,” Auscript’s COO, Kate Gaske adds.
