You need to access the platform using a desktop/laptop (Windows, Mac, or Linux) device through Google Chrome , there you will be able to read the instructions and topics to talk about. You need a computer with a built-in microphone or an external microphone connected to your computer.
Helpful tips to consider:
Stay in a quiet place, with no noise around you (your tasks will be rejected if there is background noise, but you can repeat the recording as many times as you want).
Do not listen to music while answering the call.
Don’t repeat the instruction on the screen, you’ll need to answer each situation using your own words.
I have just done my first lot of these new repeat out loud tasks. The audio was uploading for a long time then the screen changed and said “no more retries available” and the task is not showing up under my tasks.
Last time I did this type of task it was done in blocks of 10 utterances, this time it was 100, maybe too many for the system to deal with in one go?
Hi , I am having the same issue, completed two of the new tasks today, both 100 phrases each so quite long . Once uploading both times failed and no record of me completing them. I think it is too many to upload and there is a problem your end. The last batches were uploaded in 10s and no issues there. Reluctant to try again as it’s a lot of talking to find your work doesn’t upload at the end.
I did these repeat out loud tasks 2 x 100 phrases and it’s not showing in my completed tasks.
Also I spent 3.5 hours doing the transcribing and it’s showing as $2.32. That’s insane.
Where’s the real money?
Can you please check my account, and let me know why I can’t get any tasks but the transcribing, I wanted to try the “What’s it About” Tasks which indicates there are tasks available, but I click it and it says “take a break”.
Hello, we constantly make revisions of tasks, can you tell me if they have been corrected? If you think your task should not be rejected send me the date you completed it and the text of the prompt, I will be able to verify if your task is correct.
Hello, “What’s it About” tasks are not available at the moment. You will receive an email confirming the tasks available to you. Have you received these emails?
There does not seem to be a problem with your account, it is likely that only transcription tasks are enabled in your region.
