A transcriber is a transcriber no matter what device they use to record their text. Using a pen or a typewriter or a keyboard, we can all get tired, bored  silly, or just have a bad day. 

All good transcription projects will build into them the means to check and cross-check data entries, no matter what the original method of transcription.
However, a well-constructed computer-based data entry program has a number of advantages that can be built into it, that manual methods cannot match.
