  • If you have visited online freelance platforms trying to find the perfect job so you can start working from home, you might have encountered the term “non-voice” at least once or twice. It is perfect for beginners, but what is it exactly? And what are the non-voice jobs available for you?

    What does a non-voice account mean?

    In the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry, work is classified into voice and non-voice accounts. Non-voice means you do not need your voice as the main tool of the trade. In this account, most tasks are purely office work, including administrative, email handling, writing articles, chat support, and more.

    What are the non-voice jobs out there?

    There are many kinds of non-voice work that you can do even if you are a beginner or have little to no work experience. Some require serious skills, but there are also those that you can master as you go.
