From my perspective, the most important piece of transcription equipment is a ""transcription software"". It saves me a lot of time while transcriptioning for multiple freelance projects. You can find multiple different transcription softwares across the internet, but make sure to choose a software which has a high accuracy. I would avoid the free ones. I personally make use of tools from Maestra.
