Medical transcriptionists take audio recordings that doctors make and type them up so they can be read instead of listened to. It does pay well. You have to have good typing skills and you need to know a lot of medical terminology. Some employers won't hire people who don't have at least a certificate or associate's degree to be transcriptionists, though. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics has a great page explaining medical transcription in depth @ http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos271.htm
