I don't think it's a platform. I think it is just typing in Word. nm

    Does the Emdat platform use Word or is it Word-based? nm
    The platform is Word. Their program works with Word but does not change how Word works. nm
    The benefits just changed the first part of this month. I don't have them but I remember them being reasonabl for a single person. Family and spouse was not reasonable in any way (in my opinion).
    Extext is basically like typing in Word.
    Very easy. My favorite platform of any I have used.
    Let spellcheck to its job. When typing and I knw I typed a word
    The platform is not Word, but it is Word-based. I
    had little Word experience and the recruiter told me to try to find a book to learn the basics of Word as their program is Word-based. 
    I don't really have a platform. Straight typing in
    either Word or WP5.1, a macro provides all the demographics and only have to type in patient name.    My company isn't hiring currently. 
    Does DSG use the same typing platform as Precyse? nm
    typing right in EMR hospital platform
    I saw an ad, no QA ability, it goes right into hospital system right off. .  Wondering how this would work, just clicking this and that and getting paid for WHAT?  Not sure one could make a living.  Anybody??
    That's silly. Its a typing platform, not a company!
    Many companies use it, or used to use it. I even said that I knew people weren't lying about Vienetta out of job worries as the company I was going to work for was a 2 woman local office run out of a garage. Lots of MTs educated me about Vienetta on this forum, and they weren't my competition at all! Nor am I out to keep the original poster from taking a job using Vienetta.  Just shared with them the info that was shared with me a while back. Shame on you to imply otherwise.
    Do you know any MTs who use Word for their platform?
    Thanks. What platform do they use and is Word compatible?

    How about straight Word platform at
    Easy enough? Is Meditech anything like that? I've never used Meditech personally.
    Is that a Word-based platform?
    I just applied for that position and they e-mailed me with some questions.
    If you are working in a Word platform
    and not some confabulated platform, then the autocorrect that is part of MS Word is more than adequate for macros and expanding words. That is all I have used for the last 10 years and do just fine. Save your money.
    Word based platform
    Are there any GOOD companiesthat work on a Word-based platform?
    they run off a word-based platform
    it's not very stream-lined and kinda klunky, but efficient enough.  I know they've made recent updates to make it run a little faster, but there were times when i would spent two to three minutes after filling out the screen waiting for my work screen to appear. 
    FN uses iType platform for Word...nm
    MDI-FL - is the internet platform/MS word a good

    platform.  I understand they have about 4 different platforms.  I would be interested in the proprietary internet platform that uses MS Word.  Is it user friendly and productive, can you see your line counts immediately, what type of short cut Expander is used, and the type of voice player to download jobs?


    Company that uses MS word insteadof their platform.

    Did  a search, did not come up with any.  TIA

    Their own platform. Shorthand, Word based. nm
    I type in Word and use the Scribe platform...
    but I don't use a C-phone...
    Is the platform good? Word-based? Is the new
    position still recruiting? Just passed the written and doing the transcription next..
    It is their own platform but not word based. Shorthand is the macro stuff.
    Pretty decent place to work.
    What in your experience is the most efficient Word-based radiology platform to work on? nm
    RE: What in your experience is the most efficient Word-based radiology platform to work on? nm
    Is Apex an internet word-based platform? Havent heard of it...
    small to medium company that works in Word or Word-based program - email me. nm
    ExText is integrated with Word. Auto correct is a part of Word.
    ExText is a Word based platform. When the page opens for you to type the document it will be just like you are typing in MS Word.
    anyone work for Oracle - do they use Word or a Word-based program - e-mail me nm
    Just wanna work in Word - need company that works in WORD! nm
    Their program works with Word and does not change how Word functions. sm
    You use your own expander. Overall I feel it is user friendly and I like it.
    Are you on straight typing or VR/typing?
    Word for Word Medical Transcription
    Pros and cons please.
    In his ad, he's asking for Word Perfect, not Word, if that matters. nm
    Now I wish they would just call me back......no word no word and
    What is up with these MT companies that advertise. They don't even answer. I have a great resume, tons of experience. I'm confused.
    RISS is not a platform. RIS stands for Radiology Information System. The platform sm
    would be EXText.
    MDI-MD platform is fast, not full of problems like Transcend platform or MDI-FL

    On Transcend platform you have to click, click, click all day and still get errors, change screens constantly -  its a nightmare to work in. 

    word for word company
    does anyone know about word for word transcription company?  how are they to work for, platform?  thanks in advance!
    I was told I could use word pad since I don't have word

    I have 1 computer to speak of that I did not buy personally.  the company has their own platform and their own computer to be rented.  I would not be typing in word.  I have never had a problem testing this way before.  I am not saying certified is better.  I was explaining my circumstance.  I have my own personal computer ordered for my use and I wanted to test fast without waiting. geez.

    Yes, SPi does use this platform....it's a great platform, but not worth working for SPi. nm
    Bad Platform. I personally know of 3 MTs who left because of the platform.
    If you are like me, the bottom line is wages and what I get in my check. I have never worked for Amphion, but I personally know of 3 MTs who worked part-time at Amphion before quitting their other service to see what Amphion had to offer before it was too late. All 3 quit Amphion and stayed with their other service because of the Amphion platform. Too hard to make any decent lines.

    Something to think about.


    Here is one post from a couple days back:

    To all of us trying our hardest to grab our work when it is available, and then still only make 24 bucks a day because of the garbage platform.

    "overtime" is not a generic word. "incentive" is a generic word. Over time means time
    Keep typing, my a__.
    Good company to work for.  Been here 10 years and not birthing out babies.  Thank you very much.
    D&L Typing
    Does anyone have any info about D&L Typing?  They have offered me some work, but I have never heard of them before.  TIA
    D&L Typing
    I just started with them about a 2 weeks ago.  Yes, they have tons of work--I have turned away several different things from them.  As far as the pay, it depends on what acct you are doing, but it is rather low.
    D&L Typing
    I am not sure if they have accts that pay 9 or 10 cpl--that is something you will have to ask them.  As far as the direct deposit, I don't believe they do, their website says that checks get mailed to you twice a month.  Hope this helps :)
    Does anyone know anything about D&L Typing?


    D&L Typing

    They do have lots of work, they hire IC's only, and for themost part the people there are great.

    They have issues, can't get into it here, but if you want steady work, they do have it.

    Just keep your eyes and hears open, as with any company.

    Any D&L Typing MTs out there get their
    If they send out the checks on Tuesday, shouldn't you get it Wednesday or will it be Thursday?
    d&l typing
