CrowdSurf Work Transcription HITs

Our Mission

The CrowdSurf mission is to solve media challenges for the hearing impaired and second language viewers.  Our focus is to build a community of optimistic and thoughtful transcriptionists to create online media that is enjoyed by all, “for the crowd, by the crowd”.

We work with thousands of independent freelancers with little or no previous transcription experience to provide 99% accurate transcripts and video captions. We provide all of the training and support you need to get started earning money from home.

But that’s enough about us, let’s talk about you.
