There’s an interesting opportunity for Indian Appen workers (with access to an iOS device) to earn up to 40$ by just recording their voice. The whole task will take around 2-3 hours. Recently, Appen has been flooded with micro-tasks for “improvement of ASR Speech Technology”.
You are approved for these tasks within a few hours and the speech recording process will take no more than 3 hours (max).
How to work on ASR tasks?
Log into your Appen account. Go to “All Projects”.
Look for projects having this image in their description. There are around 7 such projects (micro-projects). Each one requires you to record 100 phrases, for a payment of 6$ (0.06$/approved recording).
Qualify for all these projects. You will be asked to select your Language and country, select English or Hindi (either one works). I am assuming that since you live in India, you have a basic understanding of Hindi/English.
Wait for 2-3 hours and check your active processes. You will see a “View Task” button near these projects (instead of the usual “View Status”). You will be taken to sign a document.
Now Download the AMR app (if you haven’t already) and complete all these micro-projects within 10 days (that’s a requirement). Your submission will be reviewed and the amount will automatically be added to your invoice in the upcoming payment cycles.
Even if 75% of your recordings are approved, you will earn around 30$. The approval rate of recordings done on iOS devices is higher since they have better microphones. Micro-projects disappear quickly, so hurry up.
