Data entry specialist needed for long term project copying newspaper articles from historical photos

We have hundreds of thousands of historical photos from various newspapers that need to have their correlating articles copied into an online database accessed via a website login. The images are completed one at a time from a queue. You will be assigned to a specific newspaper where photos will be in said queue, in series. The categories range from politics to movies, musicians, wars, sports, celebrities, comedians, travel, and everything in between! You will keep track of your work in a Google Sheets document.

We are looking to hire someone from the Philippines. The ideal candidate will have fast typing speeds (preferably 70+ WPM), a good sense of urgency, quick decision making skills and good communication. Your quality is important to us, so fluent English is mandatory because titling the images requires full comprehension of the newspaper article, proper spelling/grammar are necessary for good titles and there will be extensive one-on-one training for 3-4 weeks (paid, of course!) with a native English speaker from the United States.

Please see the attached files for examples.
