Express Scribe does play that!(sm)

Not sure about Gear Player, but in open Express Scribe and go to settings, and then settings, and go to the tab files, and you should be able to check the box there. You can also go to the WMA file right click and select open with and then select your Express Scribe. Good luck on the test!

Can you download Express Scribe and play the file thru there? nm
Don't need to record files. Pull them into Express Scribe (free on line) and play them thru there
Express Scribe

Does anybody know if earphones can be used with Express Scribe?  I can't find any information about this anywhere.  Thanks. 

had the same problem when I got my new computer. Easiest way is to take it from desktop, and you can drag it into escribe.
Do you have Express Scribe......
Express Scribe
Has anyone used Express Scribe to take an on-test SM
test? I downloaded it, but I can't get the function keys to work. Any help would be appreciated. I am technically dumb! TIA
How to load Express Scribe
If you already haven't found out how to do it, save the files to a folder on your desktop, then go into Express Scribe, click on Load or load files (I don't have it on this computer, so am doing this from memory), then click Browse, then click on C drive, then click Desktop, click on the folder, then click on the files you want to load.  In my experience, Express Scribe will only load a job if it has been saved in a folder.  Hope this helps and good luck
Are you talking about Express Scribe?
It's a little primitive, but it works well enough to take a test with.
Huh? I'm using Express Scribe v4.3 with Vista - nm
I did download express scribe but sm
I may be doing something wrong. I can't open this file in anything but windows media and it goes directly to windows media. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?

BTW, why did you leave and do they pay on time?

I tried downloading it into Express Scribe and it wouldnt go into that.
It's a mystery and they have never gotten back to me so I assume as I cannot play their sound file, I wont be considered for the job. I tried everything to get it to work.
isnt express scribe free? sm
i had to purchase my own bos and the software/pedal they told me to purchase was $129 (with their discount). they did provide the spellchecker, drug book, and Smartype though, so that was good. thanks for the fyi.
foot pedal- Express Scribe

Yes, I've got that far.  I'm actually able to play now, but I still don't have all the kinks ironed out.  When I play, it is warbled...I'm sure the problem is with my settings and my F-keys...can you help me?!  At least I know now this pedal does work thanks to your telling me yours did...I kept plugging and accidentally discovered I had to click on Express Scribe when I signed in.... Thank you for your help.

If you are using Express Scribe, you can use your function keys and...
the instructions are in the Help section or maybe it is in Setup.  Good luck on the test!
I used express scribe. Worked just fine.
You can also use Express scribe with a foot pedal and do it that way... nm
Bytescribe pedal & Express Scribe
I use a Bytescribe pedal with Express Scribe all the time and it works great.
Download Express Scribe.....it's free
Well I was trying like h--- to get my DQS pedal to work with Express Scribe and no way.
Thanks for telling me you had the same problem.  I thought I was the only stupid one that was having this problem.  I thought Infinity would work but it doesnt.
I use my infinity pedal with Express Scribe too with no problems. nm

help receiving encrypted files through Express Scribe

Is there anyone out there who could tell me how I could listen to encrypted files in my Express Scribe which I receive through email???  I am able to receive and listen to them just fine when not encrypted, but cannot figure out how to set ES up to use a password.  When I click on the voice file in my inbox, it now takes me to ES, but displays an ERROR box stating  - unable to open DSS file, this means the file might not be a true DSS file or the file is corrupt

The files are coming from a dss program called Olympus if that matters.  Any insight would be greaaaatly appreciated!!!

Do most MTSO's require Express Scribe for on-line
It's been a while since I've job hunted.  I never had problems with the actual tests, but using Express Scribe to access the tests was always confusing.   Is it still a problem for anyone else?
If you can get the pedal configured using the Settings in Express Scribe, it should work. nm
I had the phone interview. I did the report part of the exam with Express Scribe (sm)
last week, but haven't heard back from them. Does this usually take this long? tia
If you have an Infinity pedal, you can pull the files in thru Express Scribe, (free download) and
Star Stop works better than express scribe. If you want start Stop, yea it is kind of sm
expensive. I wish they did pay their QA hourly as I think they would see better quality work, but they per line and it is higher than the other person posted.

I have never had a problem with management, so I am unfamiliar with what the other person experienced with management.

Pay is always on time (most of the time early). I like the software. I guess you just have to see if it fits for you.
Just click on Play then click on Play again to pause dictation
I'm working in Bayscribe right now and that appears to be the only way to do it.

Play to play
Play again to pause
Play again to start play again

Hope that helps.
They play a lot of games. Pay was on
time, but they do have their favorites who get the good work. Used to run out of work all the time and have to wait for more overflow to come in, so bailed out.
Play favorites.....
pay is good, but they still play favorites and some typists make off like bandits on cream of the crop dictators while the rest of you get the scum.
It all boils down to who will play the game
There have been a lot of good MTs at OSI. Most of those who do excellent work and have years of experience have left OSi because of tactics such as this. She may have a good work ethic and sunny disposition and do good work but is not in a better position to supervise other MTs who are better all around. The point is that people new to either the MT industry or to OSI are most often the ones promoted because they are most assuredly YES people since they don't have enough experience to know any better that OSI consistently does things such as break the wage and hour law among other things.
make sure your player is set to play
Unless you have another way to play your voice files, use
Can't play the game unless you have the equipment.

Two companies that do not play games
are MDI-MD and Landmark. Good honest people at both companies.
It's one of the tricks that companies play on us
so that they can control our productivity, penalize and pay less, despite getting their work done.  The same thing happened to me a year ago, we were asked to follow dossier given by the client, but then a few QAs followed AAMT BOS, etc.  Nevertheless, we were penalized left and right and eventually when we stood up and reported their actions, then it stopped completely.
The beauty of this job has been that I can play with Junior (sm)
and still make decent money. It all depends on the company you work for. And 20 years from now, I'll be doing something else.
Help! How do I play this test file?
I'm taking a test for a job.  I was sent a file that opens in Creative MediaSource.  How am I supposed to transcribe this when it's going so fast?  I need to use my foot pedal but there is no option.  Please someone help me!  I want this job!
our fund of knowledge comes into play

with each report we type.  If that doesn't justify a decent compensation, I don't know what will. 

Should we just hop to the problem parts of the report since we are only getting paid for that part of the report, eschewing the rest, not making sure it makes sense?  It's outrageous, and we should all refuse to do it unless we get paid the same as straight typing.  Why should technological advances cause us to lose pay?  No one else is taking a cut except us, yet we are the glue that holds this profession together.  I know it's all been said before, but it's wrong, and if the MTSOs read this board, they will at least know where we stand on it. 

We earned our knowledge through blood, sweat and tears over the years, and we should be compensated for it.  Why shouldn't we?!

I use express scribe with my INfinity USB pedal. My is totally compatible.
Ask about what role American MTs will play versus their

I'll play - EZ lunch decisions
I don't have to make the decision the night before or in the morning whether to pack a lunch or buy. Can decide to make rice in the cooker, microwave a meal or just eat a sandwich, or even not eat till I'm famished, all up to me and not a clock.
Transcription Express
Anyone have experience with this company out of Houston?  TIA
Transcription Express, Inc. ...
out of Arizona.  Anyone have any information (good or bad) regarding this company?  Thanks!!
Transcripition Express
I tested with them, very simple. That was going on two weeks now.  For this one account I was checking on they paid 8 cents a line, no more.   I used DocQScribe for testing and never heard back from them.   I would have liked to heard back from them though regardless to see if I passed or failed.  I was going to be typing ER reports.  Good luck. 
freedom to express

I agree with the above poster. If you can't vent to people who are in the field about your good or bad experiences, then this is not a democracy. Personally, I do keep a lot of mine to myself basically because I don't like dealing with negative people who will judge me. It stems from not having a very supportive family and not being able to express myself growing up. What is heaven for one is hell for another but either way, people need to express themselves and get it out.

In this profit-driven healthcare industry, MTs are under appreciated and in many cases abused by management and perhaps isolated and ignored by other MTs. We definitely need a support system and these forums are supposed to serve as a support system out of the work place where we can vent and hopefully be comforted by kind words. We work in an industry that refuses to acknowledge the fact that if it were not for us, they would not have jobs. We are the industry but many of us do not feel we have much clout in the way we are treated, i.e. coldly, indifferently and there-are-more-where-you came from attitude. Lets start cooperating instead of competing especially in the forums and let people have their say and try to embrace with kindness. We all need a pat on the back.


I second that nomination! I'd do it, but I do not express myself
eloquently enough and this issue is too important for it to be written in a way that might come across as abrasive or offputting, even though that would not be the intention.
I know, that wasn't the point. It was simply the play on words....
......simply the play on words in the Google blurb that fit the situation, not the whole related article.
ho ho ho but the hosp can play Russian Roulette w/going to court with

Those medical records became cheaper for hospitals how?  When they go to court with those expensive incorrect records and LOSE, wonder if they think it was cheaper?


Or the voice files may already be there "somewhere" for you to click on and play and you
