Traditional secretarial typing jobs have evolved to PC-based word processing and data entry and today most typing jobs will involve some other elements of office administration. There are also specialist typing roles. For instance transcription is a kind of data entry that turns recorded speech into written transcript. Transcriptionists are normally provided with specialist software packages to complete this work or Microsoft Word can be used. Specialist fields of transcription include legal transcription, medical transcription and corporate transcription. Audio typing is used extensively in certain workplaces so there are audio typing jobs in architect firms, GPs offices, TV production companies and legal departments among others.
