This is the first thing I’m writing this morning. It’s almost 9 AM and it’s time to start working on the applications. I wonder if there are going to be any good ones today.

Most of the time, people just cut and paste what they find on the internet. Unfortunately, that doesn’t work too well, in most cases, as online sites such as YouTube and TikTok are chock full of scammers. The biggest problem is that most people don’t look to GoTranscript guidelines or the test instructions.

There are so many basic mistakes they make, which could so easily be remedied if they just take the time to proofread and look up the instructions. For example, a lot of people don’t format the speaker labels correctly.

I talked about that in an earlier test. Another issue is that people don’t enter paragraphs correctly.

So there are very specific instructions in the guidelines about how long each paragraph is supposed to be. It’s spelled out exactly and yet for all intents and purposes, I think it just said to make your test one big blog of a paragraph. That’s not actually what it says though.

So if you’re if your transcript of what I’m saying right now, has anything less than, oh, let’s say three paragraphs, I can pretty much guarantee it’s going to be rejected.

I mean, even if you’ve got all the words transcribed correctly, so what

if you don’t pay attention to the formatting guidelines? How are you any better than an AI program which we could get for free? No, if you want to pass the test, you really have to focus on making sure your paragraphs are 500 characters or less.

Okay, granted, every so often, they have to be a little bit longer and of course, it’s possible for your paragraphs to be too short as well.

Some people will put every sentence on a separate line so it winds up looking like freeform poetry like Archie unhittable. If you’re old and or well-read enough to get that reference. We get that it’s not hard or it’s not a rigid, hard and fast rule. But it is a rule and you are expected to get as close as possible to that instruction.

You’re also expected to read the rules for format numbers so that if I tell you that nine out of 10 people won’t pass the test, based on the numbers I just dictated, you’ll understand why? Please be that one out of 10 people who do it right won’t show.
