Platform is user friendly. P ay is good. sm
The accounts are good for experienced MTs.

I can't say I produce more on this particular platform, but it is MT friendly. I average approximately 300 lines an hour. That is not my best, as I have done 400 lines an hour on a different platform. It all depends on the dictators.

Good luck to you. If you need flexibility, a decent line rate and don't mind being SE without benefits - go for it.

I prefer SE or IC status, so it suits me just fine.
Platform is extremely user friendly! They are one of the better
companies out there. I would suggest working for them and deciding for yourself.
First they use the Futurenet platform which is VERY user friendly.

however, there is a discrepancy in line counts.  They tend to try to use the line count that the FNET program gives.  I wrote down character count with spaces for each document and found that at the end of the day the FNET program shorted me anywhere from 50 to 75 lines per day.  The good news is you submit a line count sheet at the end of the pay period and they pay you off your sheet.  So if you keep track like I did, you won't get shorted.

My only beef with JLG was that I was hired in to do SR paid hourly and within weeks of being hired they breached their offer letter and contract and forced us all (all SR people) to go onto production, which would be fine except that the ASR program had just started and we were still teaching the engine, so you couldn't make any money on production because you were pratically transcribing the entire report. Then there was the game playing.  When we were hourly and management felt we weren't productive enough, they withheld work.  They wouldn't put any jobs in our queue for days at a time.  That didn't sit well with me.  I'm the kind of person that if you don't like something I'm doing, call me up and tell me.  Don't play passive-aggressive BS games!

I think they treat their MTs pretty well.  I just would be mindful of how some of the higher ups operate.  I think if you go in with your eyes open, you could make decent money on their platform transcribing.

Good Luck!

The platform is super easy and user friendly. I have never had sm
any problems getting my lines...plus!
Does JLG have nice accounts to work on and is their platform user friendly.
Escription is user friendly and 4 cpl is about average for that platform. You could easily do 400
lines an hour. Some people do even 500-600. Good luck with your decision. From what I know, it really is the best VR platform out there and I make more on that than  ever could straight typing.
I love the WMX platform. Extremely user friendly and fast. SM
I definitely do not have to enter a bunch of demographics, which is really a plus for me. I love it here, going on one year now!
I currently work at JLG and love it. Great, user friendly platform.
They leave you alone to type.  Pay on time, never late.  Pretty well organized and good communication.  And they do not offshore!  I be sticking around.   Cubicles 

Is Dolbey STAT Transcription Platform user friendly?

They use Dictaphone EX Text platform. Very user friendly and easy to work on.
It is all strictly internet based. No extra phone lines required. They do reimburse your high speed internet up to I think $40 a month, too.
Yep. Not user friendly at all. It
requires a lot of going from keyboard to mouse and back and forth. My backup account is Mongoose and I liked it much better.
user friendly software
Is there really a user-friendly software?  Is there one that you don't have to type in demographics anymore or at least get paid for it if you do?  Is there one that is actually fast and doesn't require a lot of changing from screen to screen?  What would it be?  I am not a computer savvy person, but it seems like all this technology is taking us backwards.  Also, I don't suppose you would like to tell us which company you work for.
Yes! There really is user-friendly software out there. /sm
You have to do your research, and ask questions in regards to companies with user-friendly software. Both companies I work for use proprietary software that is Word-based. It is all internet- The IC position software- I never change screens, the jobs download in seconds, press one key and demographics fill in (for which I am paid, including headers/footers)- tab down and there's the page you start typing, One click to physician roster- everything right at your fingertips, i.e. account specifics, BOS guidelines, etc. Full-time position - only two screens (demographic) then transcription screen. Everything at fingertips, doctor roster, etc.
I find it very user friendly. nm
Is it relatively user friendly and fast? nm
that is untrue. once you get used to it, it's very user friendly
and you can move around in it just fine, look up old reports on the same patient or any other for that matter --
Bayscribe is not as user friendly as they say
DocQscribe much better. I agree that Bayscribe takes to much mousing, too many slots. Have to reselect report type after each report even if same worktype. Bayscribe needs some upgrading as far as functionality. Yes, it is doable but other platforms much more productive.
I love MedRemote! Very user friendly.
Never used CM.
Anyone use Cquenc software? User friendly or not? Thx. nm
A lot of programs with their program. Not user friendly.
ChartScript is very user friendly. The only fields in the
demographics section that I need is the dictating physician's identification number.  It's a good program,with flaws like any other, but again, user friendly including very extensive, excellently written tutorial. 
yes, it is word based. And very user friendly. IMO.
I totally agree. NOT user friendly.
Has anybody ever worked in WinScribe? Is is user friendly and productive? nm
Has anyone ever worked for co who uses IntraScript? Is it user friendly, productive? Any comments
Very easy, user friendly, a little slow and awkward compared to DQS though. (sm)
One of the best features is that you are able to search for your own samples on a particular dictator or patient. You do however have to be aware these are typed by other people and could potentially have errors.
Can anyone give feedback on BeyondTXT such as user friendly, productive, etc? Any comments welcome.
I love it! Nothing like the old blue screen Meditech. User friendly and easy to use! sm
I also get paid gross line, which helps, but very easy to use!
Any information on program called Beyond Text by Transcend? Fast, slow, user friendly?
Can you make decent lines with it?  Is tech support good? 
Great place - ExText is easy to learn and user friendly. Good pay. Nice, COMPETENT people.
MedRite platform user

Is this accurate - since MedRite is MSWord based, while in the program one cannot minimize and go into your PC and open another saved Word document ( such as a saved list) ? It will freeze the screen.  Anybody?

 If it freezes does that mean you need to reboot?

I just tested for Precyse, is their platform user... sm
friendly?  I am looking for something else because I just started working for a company that has a HORRIBLE platform .  Had to use the mouse a lot, no shortcut keys, and somehow the lines I got when checking with Word line counter didn't add up to what they were getting (about 20-30% less ).  Anything you can tell me about Precyse would be greatly appreciated.
It is not the most MT-friendly platform, that's for sure, but if the company sm

is a good one, I wouldn't pass it up just because of Meditech.  I am using it for the first time, and after a month I no longer loathe it like I did, but I cannot honestly say it is my favorite.  It IS rather clunky and antiquated.  Fortunately, ShortHand works as an expander, so that helps, and one of the pluses of the Meditech system is the ability to access lab, medications, other reports, etc.

Good luck to you.  I am sure your trainer will have some helpful tips, or at least I hope so.

Is Chart Matrix an MT-friendly platform? How about
MQ speech platform MUCH easier and MT friendly than TT's

Dictatphone Exspeech is just awful !!!!  You will see, I guarantee you  !!!

DQS is excellent editing platform.

No complaints at all. Platform is super MT friendly. Great QA department.
Very happy at Medware.
great friendly people, IC work, pay so-so (9-1/2 cpl), clumsy platform. nm
Transtech platform?
Wondering what platform Transtech uses, also any comments on likes/dislikes. Thanks in advance.
How many employees at TransTech? What platform
Transtech new speech platform

Has anyone tried this out yet, and what is your opinion.  Please feel free to e-mail me if you wish.  Thanks!

I'd say TransTech; Transcend's platform is horrible. nm
What type of platform does TransTech utilize?

Is it hard to learn?

Transtech does have voice recognition. Horrible platform for editing.
Dictaphone Exspeech is the very worst VR platform I have ever worked on.  Yes, the MT line rate is much reduced for it, too.
I think it sucks and is not very user
I will never work on Meditech again, but to each their own. Good luck to you.
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.

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.
Not re Jax, but just gotta say your user name is hilarious!
Beyond Text is extremely user
friendly and I've never had a problem making lines on it.  In fact, I made my min line requirements by the end of my first week with it.  I've been there going on 2 years now.  I find it very simple and a lot of things are automated as far as formatting, etc. 
Yes, pay is on time - software user hostile - what's most important to you?
It is an expander, so it is up to the user to enter the words and phrases. nm
Opti-Script is also a big offshore labor user. Do your homework.
