HI. I have been approached about helping out a solicitor with some remote transcription. I have software installed already to play the audio files but I am worried about secure file transfer and encryption... any advice?

How or what program will you use to access the remote files?

For example, if the remote files are to be accessed via a web browser and the web address commences with the 's' character indicates a secure encrypted web session connection.

Hi Svol Well I don't know really. As it is transcription I guess they will email the files to me or we could use something like Dropbox? then I will type up the document from Express Scribe... I think I would have to save the file if emailed onto my desktop and then import it into Express Scribe... I haven't got that far in discussions with them yet... They do have a secure email address we could use for sending files back and forth, but I need to know that I am sending stuff securely... Does this help???

Thanks, Jill

Have a read here is about tax documents but is relative to your situation.

If documents are sent back and forward I would have thought encryption would be what you need the solicitor must have some form of encryption they use.
