PsychoBlonde Posted October 27, 2012 Author Share Posted October 27, 2012 The remaining percentage may know how to write professionally, but their work still needs a lot of correcting/editting. Heh, irony. I feel your pain, though, I used to manage a transcription company and it's amazing even how many "professional" transcriptionists are functionally illiterate, and all they have to do is write down what someone else said. That being said, I have also run the logistics on this kind of enterprise, and it's doable. The best way to do it is to make people prove up front that they can produce quality work and have integrity instead of just asking for "submissions"--you have to weed from the beginning not try to institute weeding after the fact. As for the legal side of it, it's perfectly legal not to pay people if they volunteer. You can even inform them that they won't get direct credit for it. The legal hassles begin when there's money involved. Volunteers are much less of a logistical hassle.
