I agree that it really may be quicker to generate income by transcribing. With your experience, you should be able to hit the ground running. Just get your digital software installed and become familiar with it. Many use Express Scribe (free), and just purchase pedals. Use a good headset (but that's true if you're scoping to audio too).
Here's just one of many groups that specialize in transcription.
I'm not trying to discourage you from scoping, but it is often easier to get started in transcribing. Then you can generate income while you pursue scoping.

I have 30+ years as a legal secretary/paralegal in many areas of the law.....straight transcription for many of those years, and my experience also involved summarizing depositions; in addition I have a degree in English. My mother is elderly and I need work I can do at home and which enables me to travel...I think I am highly qualified to do scoping (I am aware that there is software involved, etc., and have a good friend who has scoped for years).....any ideas please on the least expensive way for me to enter into this career...anyone want to train? I am in altadena, california. thanks.
