I average 1200-1400 lines per day with a national, and am only getting around 600-800 lines per day.

It's been this way since the day before Thanksgiving. I've been doing this for almost 30 years now, and more often than from Thanksgiving until the new year is the slowest time of the year. I have some months where I am swamped with up to 2000 lines per day. I stash that little extra money, and take advantage of a handful of extremely slow days this time of the year to actually cook dinner, decorate for Christmas, or do Christmas shopping. I actually anticipate this slow time every year and have grown to enjoy the breathing time. Any time I have attempted to pick up extra work with another company to supplement these slow times, the minute I get adjusted to the new accounts, etc. I have no time to finish all of my work because my full time job with national gets slammed again. Hang in there if you can, and hopefully your work will pick up significantly around New Years.

Average of 1200 lines per day.
1800 lines is easily achieved. I average 300-340 lines per hour. nm
10 lines per minute = 1500 lines for 150 minutes - average. nm
Try getting your facts straight before you decide to shoot down a company. Keep on wandering and you may find some unlucky company who would love to have your attitude.
ProScript only 8 cpl for 1100-1400 lines a day, THEN you go to 8.5 cpl. nm
In 2005, they were offering 8 cpl up to 1400 lines a day. Over that,
ETrans doesn't hit 9 cpl until you're at 1400 lines a day. nm
even if you are only doing 1400 lines a day at 8 cents a line that is still $15 an hour...
How many jobs are you going to get outside of the home making $15 an hour, especially in this economy and most parts of the country? That is only 175 lines an hour and most nationals expect at least 150 an hour, so that is not that much of a push. If you do 200 lines an hour, or 1600 lines a day, look at the raise and that is $16 an hour. This is also only making 8 cents a line, which by the time you are making over 1300 lines a day you probably are getting some sort of incentive, at least a lot of companies you do, and that would push this number up even more.
I used to be a graphic designer for many years and to this day pay for a good designer is only $12 to $14 an hour and you have to commute to the job, so how is it not realistic to make this type of money. I do not see where your logic is and if you are making so bad then maybe it is time to re-look at your profession and find something that is more a fit to you and make the money you deserve. I just do not see how making a minimum of $14 an hour is so unrealistic. Geez.
Last year offering 8 cpl w/spcs on 1100+ lpd, 8.5 cpl for 1400+ lines. nm
You get for over 1200 lines a day
and this is just MT, ME is different and too complicated. MT gets for over 1200- extra penny, 1301-1450 +0.015 per line, 1451-1550 +0.025 per line and so on. But on DEP what are the chances of this?? I hope good but hear not so good. plus to move up a pair tier from 1 to 2 and so on must pass test and have AVAILABLE POSITION IN HIGHER TIER, must meet work availability and must be manager approved. So just getting better at your job doesn't make you automatically move up.
1200 lines per day (nm)
only 1200 lines
ONLY 1200 lines you say? When you sign on in the morning and work 45 minutes, then run out of work for most of the day...........are you able to type 1200 lines? That would translate into 1200 lines per hour, can you do that?
1200 lines or more
Now, tell me this, how does a company expect you to have 1200 lines a day when all dictators are foreign, have to download the report to type, which takes a while to download, not because my computer is slow, but it does show slower in the other side, and when the transcriptionists do not type the hard reports get to be the first ones to come up? I am not a perfect transcriptionist, nor a slow typist, but it takes me one hour and about 40 minutes to type 150 lines....frustrated!!!!
12,000 lines/pay period not 1200
I'm sure it was a typo, and I'm not picking on anyone, but I just want to clarify that it is 12,000 lines per pay period that is required of an SE which is roughly 1200 lines a day. Hope this helps!
1200 lines/pay period?? nm
1200 lines a pay period
The requirement for direct deposit is 14,000 lines a pay period CONSISTENTLY, so in breaking it down over a 13-14 day period, a bit over 1,000 lines a day -- hope you can brush up on you math too
More than 1200 lines a week?
so what's the point in being so rude to wandering MT?
I hit 1200 lines a day easy, sm
I hit 1200+ daily at Axolotl. I was reaching my line counts within the first week. As stated in another message, it could be the difference in accounts/dictators. I work on several accounts though.
1200 lines per day for VR is extremely low.
With VR, a person should be doing at least 2000+ per day. You're kidding yourself if you think you will find a VR job that only requires 1200 or less!
I'm FT and it's 1200 lines...Not sure what PT requirement is (nm)
I do 1200 lines a day in 2 hospital accounts and I can
usually get my work done in 4 to 5 hours. BUT, if the kids are around or whatever, then of course, it takes quite a bit longer. Also, I have a lot of Instant Text saved etc. and normals that my doctors repeat in their reports.
pretty sure they require 1200 lines/pay pd for SE (nm)
0.085, but I am averaging 1200 lines in less than 5 hours - sm
and I have only been on the account for 4 months. Personally, I do not think $20/hour is all that bad, do you??? Consider this, most hospitals are hiring at $12-13/hour in the south where I'm located.
Full time = 1200 lines per day. nm
MedQuist requires 1200 lines a day
I do voice recognition and am only required to do 1200 lines a day, 12,000 per pay period.
1200 lines at 3 cpl equals 36 bucks
You can work at 7-11 for that kind of money.
Wait, you can only type 1200 lines a day?
You can't type more?
I do 1200-1300 lines in 5-6 hours. I am not very fast
though. My fingers are getting old :)
For companies that hire FT 1000-1200 lines, what happens when
Due to low work or a particularly bad day maybe in which you struggled with difficult physicians? I am an IC so never had to deal with how many lines to get in a day or having to keep up with a certain quota. I am not particularly interested in any insurance or anything but perhaps PTO and 401k, so taking a look around and trying to figure it all out. Thanks MTs!
Make sure you ask what the required lines per day is. Could be 1200-1800 or higher. nm
Low line counts - difficult to make 1200 lines in 8 hours. sm
25 years of experience as an Acute Care MT and I had a difficult time getting 200 lph with Bayscribe. Any other accounts with other companies, I could easily transcribe 350-400 lph. Not at MDI - very difficult. I loved the account, but again it was difficult to get a decent line count.
It doesn't matter if you pay me 11 cpl if I can't get a decent line count. Couldn't take the 3 x day e-mails either.
Old posts say they dock lines if the client is unhappy and starting pay is very low for 1200 lpd. nm
Did they happen to mention the average lines the other MTs were getting?
I average 300 lines an hour
but some days I do have to work over 8 hours to make it work because of things going on around the house, this will definitely disrupt things
AVERAGE LINES PER HOUR
Can anyone tell me what their average lines per hour are on speech recognition, such as escription or extext?
Medware - how many lines average?
Can anyone who works for Medware tell me what your average line counts are? Can you get good line counts with them?
What did your hourly lines average? sm
When you say you couldn't get your count up...how low was it, approximately? Must not have been worthwhile, huh?
How many lines per hour do you average?
185 lines? The company I'm working for wants 250......what is the average???? Anyone???
150-170 lines per hour is pretty average.
Imagine that times 40%. 150 x 40% increase using an Expander is another 60 lines paid per hour. At $.07 per line, it's the difference between $10.50 an hour at 150 lines or $14.70 an hour at 210 lines. Work smarter, not harder.
Been here 4 months and average 250 lines per hour, sometimes 300.nm
How many lines do you average daily on eScription?
Doesn't matter where you work, how many lines do you average daily on eScription?
I average 1800-2000 lines a day on BeyondTXT.
I usually average anywhere between 2500-3000 lines per shift
oh dear I average 350 lines an hour straight
typing! If that's the average for VR, then that's terrible!! I cannot express how insane that sounds to me!!!
1200 lines daily is great if you have the work, personally, I never had enough work so
I left and have NEVER been sorry!
They work with you to make sure you get the lines required or the amount of lines you want...
I have never had a problem getting more work
Minimum lines for FT used to be 60,000 keystrokes a day, about 925 lines. Pay was good. Just not a
Yes it is possible to double your lines. I cant type 460 lines an hour but I can get those with VR
Regular lines, not weighted lines
was what I got paid for....
12K lines payperiod is 6K lines a week.
