Billing/Coding VS. Transcribing

Would you say that it is easier to work from home as a Medical Biller or as a Medical Transcriber?  I have yet to sign up for my distance learning course; I'm trying to find out which career path to take.  Any advice you have would be super.

I have done both, and have done coding at home. Coding at home is certainly more of a mobile task, you can take your books with you into any room or outside, but I find that I get easily distracted from coding at home. I would think transcription would be more structured, and therefore a little easier to accomplish at home.
