    "I have been a medical transcriptionist for over 20 years now, employed by others, but reliant on being employed. When circumstances changed for me, I explored the possibility of working for myself and was super impressed by what Jo has created with The Transcription Directory. A one stop directory for those seeking work and those needing expertise. I highly recommend registering with The Transcription Directory as a transcriptionist."

    ~ Tania

    I was lucky enough to secure work with a client through The Transcription Directory. We’ve been working together since October last year and have clicked really well, so I’m very happy. At the end of the day, I was lucky to fall into the perfect position thanks to your site!
