ProsMessaged the requester about the issues and they replied almost instantly saying it was fine and that I would be approved.
ConsThis one was a little tedious. It was meant to automatically advance after each recording but sometimes it skipped over a couple and other times it stopped altogether and I had to walk back and forth from my computer to the other side of my room.
Native speakers of American English, LISTEN TO and TRANSCRIBE 20 short phrase audio files.(20190215_MA_trans) - $1.50
$16.07 / hour
00:05:36 / completion time
ProsA few audio files were not there so I wrote to them really just as an FYI to let them know and they got back to me immediately and even told me basically don't worry the HIT would be approved and I didn't even ask about that! I was impressed.
Respond to 20 prompts, pretend to order at a fast food restaurant. (20190510_SY) - $1.50
$25.35 / hour
00:03:33 / completion time
Pros4 hour 50 minute timer
ConsThis Acme HIT was garbage because the prompts were way too long to read, the prompts moved on automatically regardless of your recording quality, and the timers were either too short or too long depending on the prompt length. I highly doubt that Acme would want to do this again, as they're going to get a lot of blank or garbage recordings with their automated system.
