Here is a link to many many reasons why...
These will tell you why this program is the best thing that ever happened to my production.

I do and would highly recommend
Always plenty of work, awesome communication, just an overall wonderful company. I'm going on 2 years with them and have never been happier! Good luck!
I highly recommend . . .
You may have heard that they outsource, but what they actually do is hire people in other countries to do work in those countries.
From numerous conference calls of over 50 people just on my one team, I detected no non-US accents.
(I'm in NC, work out of the Richmond, VA office, and work for agencies in 10 different states.)
Anyway, I don't know what their experience requirement is (and I'm one of those ancient veterans with over 20 years' experience), and I can't seem to find out on their website, though the fact that it does NOT mention a specific experience requirement and the fact that the testing site mentions new grads, it would seem they're more interested in what you know than for how long you've known it.
I'd be surprised if the requirement is all that much because most of the work is disability, mostly psychiatric, some orthopedic, and therefore not so technically dense, if you will.
They even seem like if they do have a policy, they might make an exception if you test well.
Anyway, it's worth checking it out--you can test right on the website.
(Never out of work, very clear dictators, allow use of former reports as templates; full employee status, part-time and full-time, including great benefits--even a few, like 401k, for part-timers, like me; only hire actual MTs as managers, etc.)
Sorry to gush; I really am an MT and not a recruiter, but I've worked for so many lousy companies that it's good finally (again, after 20 years) to be able to highly recommend one.
(And now, in fact, I do need to get back to work--yes, at 1 a.m.--flexible schedules too.)
Check it out:
Good luck, Dawn,
I would highly recommend
them. Pay always on time and direct deposited. Work easy and also as long as you do your work in the required TAT, they basically leave you alone. I would say accept the position, as they are really good to work for. R
I took Webmedx's course, highly recommend it...
I've been an MT for almost 25 years, but was still quite nervous about the exam. The course helped to keep my attention focused on the task at hand, helped to keep me studying faithfully for the duration of the course until I took the exam. I tend to put things off until the last minute, so the weekly webinars & study materials were invaluable in helping me to study consistently and to stay focused on my goal. Also, I learned a lot! The CMT Review Guide showed me my weak areas, but I concentrated my study time on the Language of Medicine, the 2nd ed. BOS, and an anatomy & physiology text. Also read Human Diseases by John H. Dirckx, MD, but I'm not sure that was very helpful. In the Webmedx prep classes, you'll get a lot of very helpful information & handouts, and the review questions will force you into the books!
I work for them and would recommend them highly. Email me if you
want to ask specific questions. email@example.com
Great company. Would highly recommend!!
Pays on time. Great owners. Very helpful. Nice software. Flexible schedules.
Amphion - I highly recommend this professional, fair company
Best of luck!
Instant text and OSI
When I was there about six months ago, I used IT and it worked fine. You need an expander to make any money there....and still not easy to make with the system/amount of demographics you have to enter.
I use Instant Text sm
I use Instant Text with EXText without a problem.
I believe the EXText software is better than some, and certainly better than DocQScribe.
I think the pay is fair -- the more difficult accounts are paid at a higher rate.
The real problem with OSi is running out of work due to overstaffing, even with backup accounts. The flip side is the bonus program for high production when the account falls behind. Seems like am employee stability problem for some reason I can't figure out.
Does anyone know if Intant Text has a trial version to use to decide if you like it before you buy it?
All I can say is that I have Instant Text and it has interfaced with every kind of platform I've ever connected it with. Never have had any trouble with it whatsoever.
Can Instant Text be used with
I'm trying to use Instant Text.
I also have the the Saving Keystrokes book, but am so busy, don't have time to check it all out. I used to do macros back before Windows was born, but now cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to do any that work.
Hopefully, when the work is a bit more caught up, I can spend some time with the book.
Does anyone know if Instant Text
Have you tried Instant Text?
I tried that with Dragon, too. Major waste of time and money. If only I had bought Instant Text then, instead of Dragon. The best way to make money in this business is to become the absolute master of Instant Text. In less time than it takes to INSTALL Dragon, you will be using Instant Text with ease. My productivity increased massively the very first hour! It's a great investment. I really, really need to reduce the mileage on my wrists, so I decided to give IT a shot, and it's working!
Does anyone here use Instant Text along with Extext Word Client? Thanks.
Any MDI-MD MTs using Instant Text? I need help (sm)
Okay, when I use Instant Text in Bayscribe, it will not capitalize after the colons, and this is so irritating. Does this do this to you? Also, for some reason, sometimes it will capitalize after a period and sometimes not. There seems to be a glitch. I called tech support at Instant Text and I updated with the latest revision but it is still sporadically not capitalizing after the periods. I have both Bayscribe and Instant Text set to capitalize after a period. Are any of you having this problem? It is costing me a bunch of time and not to mention causing a lot of frustration.
I purchased IT from another MT on this forum and I love it! She sold it to me for $95, plus $5 shipping, so that was around $85 off the retail price. I always buy my software this way, and I check ebay also.
I like IT because most of the macros (glossaries) are already pre-loaded, versus having to make every one yourself. It will also continue sentences and you pick the right phrase, or you can customize your glossaries. It takes a little time to learn it all because it does so much, but it is worth the investment, in my opinion.
InstantText has a forum you can go to to address this problem as I have just recently had this very same thing happen to me. I only resolved it when I went to the link provided in the form to download a revision of IT Pro.
Are you on the email group for Instant Text? If so I just sent out an email today with some commands. You can reply to that so I know your email at work. I think since you are on Chartmatrix, you might not be in that email group. You can do reply by email here but I actually have an older email on here-- but tell me you are emailing me and I will check that one. Just trying to get around putting my email on the board here, know what I mean?
Instant Text user
Does anyone out there using Instant Text have problems with it? I have used IT for years and recently upgrade to Pro Version 5.23, using with WP 12 and Word 2000. Just within the last couple of months I have been having trouble with IT just unlinking itself with WP or Word, whichever I'm using. I swear I'm not doing anything but just typing away; I'll type a shortcut and it won't expand and I'll notice that IT has unlinked itself. I have written to IT and they have basically told me they don't know what's wrong, that it must be my computer. I've gone on their website and upgraded the fix for WP 12 users and all and I'm still having that problem. Another problem I'm having (and I'm sure there's got to be a setting that I don't know about) is that when I go online to research something (while I'm working/typing MT stuff or whatever), IT will automatically link itself to the internet, etc. Anybody have any suggestions to help me out? Thanks, I appreciate any help. Maybe it IS my computer, but if anybody else has had this problem please let me know if you and how/if you were able to fix it. Thanks again.
Instant Text user
Try www.worldstart.com and ask one of their techs in the message board if they can help you. This site is great for all kinds of computer problems. They have helped me quite a few times and it is free. They also will tell you if you want to know the best antivirus, popup blocker, etc to use and most of them are free. Good luck.
Can Instant text be used with OSI software?
I really would like to know if anyone working at OSi use Instant text. If not, how is the software? Thanks.
I use Instant Text with EXText. NM
Can you use Instant Text with Transhealth's
Instant Text should work
It has the capability to link to any program you have running, even email, so while I've never tried it with IChart, it's worked with every program I've ever run.
Any MDI-MD employees use Instant Text? nm
Can Instant Text be used with ExText instead of the
built in ESP Expander program?
re: AutoCorrect/Instant Text
I, too, have used AutoCorrect exclusively for the last 2 years and have been able to do very well on my line counts; however, after some recent research into Instant Text I ordered it (and actually just received today). While I have not had time to use it yet, I really like the fact that it has WAY more capability than AutoCorrect. I can't wait to experiment with it and believe it will prove to be a worthy investment when I learn all of its possible functions.
I use Instant Text and Bayscribe (sm)
Instant Text has a converter program within itself. The Intant Text technical support can answer any questions you have and will help you if you decide to purchase $189 and worth every penny!
Instant Text question
It's probably in the manual but I can readily find it.
How do I bold type something and same it as bold type???
Instant Text and Chartscript
Just got switched to a Chartscript account. I am wondering if anyone has been able to use their Instant Text in Chartscript.
Or, should I simply bite the bullet, and abandon it in lieu of the Expander program that comes with the system.
Instant text pro V and DocQscribe
Any Precyse people currently using Instant Text Pro V on DocQScribe platform? Just wanted to know how well it works for you and if it is really compatible with DocQscribe.
DocQscribe and Instant Text
I have been using DocQScribe and Instant Text and they work great together. Instant Text is compatible with most Word-based platforms, and it is the BEST Expander I have ever used.
Instant Text and ExtText
I worked on ExtText 2 years ago with Instant Text Pro V, and it worked great!
I Know Med Platform - Instant Text?
Is there anyone out there that has used the I Know Med platform? Does Instant Text work with it? I was offered a position with Aces Up and that is their platform. Thanks
Instant Text Answer
You're actually typing in your own copy of Word for this particular client, so anything that currently works for you in Word, will continue to work.
I also vote for Instant Text. nm
Will Ichart interface with Instant Text?
New MT Looking for Instant Text Friendly Company
Hi, Just graduating from the MTEC program and wanted to know which companies out there allow you to use Instant Text. Gotten way too used to it during school and can't give it up! TIA!
Shorthand and Instant Text will work
Don't know about any other programs though.
I check my counts against Instant Text sm
I've only been at TT for a short time but I use Instant Text to check my counts after every report based on inclusion of spaces on a 65 character line and when iChart is done updating, the counts agree. In fact, iChart always has more lines than IT does, probably because I don't include the cc or signature line in the count. So, I don't feel cheated.
Shorthand versus Instant Text
I was wondering if someone could tell me if there is a big difference in these 2 Expanders please. Any info is greatly appreciated. TIA!
There are glitches with MDI-MD's platform and Instant Text. nm
Which company platforms allow Instant Text?
Was wondering if anyone can tell me some company platforms can use Instant Text - Keystrokes, Axolt, Amphion? Thanks.
Instant Text and Shorthand both work with it. nm
Can Axolotl MTs use Instant Text as their expander?
I read in the archives that you have to use their computer. Does anyone know if you can keep using Instant Text as your Expander or do you have to use their expander only?
Instant Text versus PCShorthand, etc.
I am looking into purchasing an expander. I posted somewhere on the board yesterday, but can't find my post or replies. Are there any pros/cons to either of these expanders? How hard are they to learn? I have been an MT for 20 years; would it be worth it for me to use one? Are they better than the expansions I would use with Dictaphone ExText? Thanks for any advice!
Bayscribe/Instant Text question
I can't get my Instant Text to work with Bayscribe. I know it is linked. What might I be doing wrong?
Ijust purchased Instant Text
So far it works with everything I have, even this post.
