Anyone work for Oak Transcription or Nicholas Transcription- please e-mail me nm
Nicholas Transcription??
Does anyone know anything about this company? They have an ad for an Editor, but would like any positive/negative info before applying. Thanks!
Nicholas Transcription - SM
I did the test on Sunday. There were a few blanks which I thought were rather difficult but overall I thought that I did pretty well. I still have not heard from them. I have been a MT for over 11 years. Is it possible that I did that poorly or does it take a while for a response? Thanks for any help.
Nicholas Transcription
Anyone have any experience with Nicholas Transcription?
Nicholas Transcription
Any info on this company?  Thanks a bunch.
Nicholas Transcription
Does anyone work for or know anything about Nicholas Transcription Company?  I checked the archives, but nothing since 2004. 
Nicholas Transcription

This company does not use a platform. You work with templates in MS Word. It is impossible to crash a computer using a template. Templates do not break hardware. If you were unhappy with the line rate than why agree to work with the company. When you are interviewed with this company it is explained up front what is expected of you and you are given a contract to sign again with what is expected of you in writing. If you can't live up to what is expected then do not sign the contract or agree to work for this company. This company works with each MT and if a problem arises and you can not meet your 24 hour TAT all you have to do is talk to them. They will work with you by extending additional time for you to complete the work, or have it reassigned. In regards to a $2 fee for the direct deposit. That is your choice, it is not required. You can receive a check in the mail, its your choice. If you feel that a company that provides samples, answers their own phone and email, works with each and every MT, requires no line minimun, has plenty of work, allows you to work on the same provider and not pull work from a pool, and allows you to complete your work at your convenience in a 24 hour TAT is a bad company to work for then perhaps its a good thing you are not working for them.  

Anyone with information on Nicholas Transcription in NH? Thank you! (NM)
Nicholas Transcription/not Valentine
My head must have left me...I was wondering about Nicholas Transcription in New Hampshire not about Valentine Transcription.  Anyone heard anything about them or has anyone worked for them.  JMD 
Nicholas Transcription FTP question..

I'm just wondering which File Transfer Protocol they use.  I don't mean to sound like I'm prying, but the last couple I've used I had a problem slowing down the dictation, meaning you could absolutely not slow the voice down, or even adjust it.  It was the way it was.  Now, how in the world can you start a new account without being able to slow down occassionally? 

Anybody else had this problem?  Are they all like this?  I'm on C-phone right now.  Not perfect, but I like it okay.

2 cents for blanks, 2.5 for voice, 5.5-6 hours a day, IC
I don't know who Nicholas is so
that does not tell me a thing.
If you want to email me, you may.
I applied with them and do hope to hear from them.
Re: Nicholas Transciption

The owner is wonderful.  They have great accounts.  You are not in a pool.  You get your own dictators.  The pay is on time.  The support is great.  Overall, a wonderful company.

Nicholas Transcr


Did you test with them yet?? I was contemplating taking the test, but do not know much about them. 



Nicholas Test

Yes, I did.  I was not a difficult test, basic knowledge of grammar.  The dictations were clear and not too difficult.  One was a little tricky.  I'm thinking if the test was clear, then their sound quality should be to, if I were to work for them. 

I just don't like most of these internet based platforms for the simple reason of the sound quality - the handful I've worked on can't be slowed down or tweaked.  ExText could but not the rest.  You can email me privately if you want.

Everything bad that left Nicholas Trans
I always got paid on time at Nicholas..sm
I think there were possibly a couple of times where it was 2-3 days late, but she always let us know what was going on ... she's a nice lady to work for, friendly and flexible.

Biggest drawback for me was pay was only 7 cpl at the time (about 4-5 years ago), and there was slight disorganization due to rapid growth. New tech issues, specs, staff changes, etc. Decent dictators, though, and I liked working there. I left due to the pay.

All that being said, I now have my own MT service, and I personally do not agree with paying ICs when an MTSO gets paid. I consider that a business expense like any other, and I allow for and recoup those costs from the clients accordingly. An MTSO's collection issues/methods should not be the IC's problem, IMO. I believe an IC has the right to expect regular payment for services rendered.

If you can accept the payment arrangement knowing there MIGHT be times you'll have to wait, it's a nice place to work, though.
Playback Software at Nicholas

Gotcha!  Getting my terms straight here   So, I did my research and the software used to 'play' the voice is Professional Digital Transcription Playback Software )DTPS).

The few I've worked with always have that annoying feature where you can't modify the voice speed.  Are they all like that?

I'm just wondering what the PDTPS is like at Nicholas.  BTW - I made up that abbreviation - may not be accurate!

Thanks for letting me pick your brain!!!



It doesn't look like you'll get paid by Nicholas
you don't know when you'll get paid.  The others I have no idea.  Just my 2 cents. 
I looked into Nicholas, but I felt that it was too risky

Webinar -Evolving Medical Transcription: Technology's impact on traditional transcription process

Hey everyone, check out this link. This is what we are up against. Be sure and note how 3M or whoever is the sponsor of this webinar throws in that dictation and transcription is time-consuming.  Nevermind that EMR and VR take more time and money to be successful and it only takes 38 seconds to dictate a returning patient and 2 minutes to dictate a new patient versus 500 clicks on a point and click EMR or the mess VR makes and having to have an Editor come in and clean up the mess. Propaganda that we should know about.

I am looking for a new home and have applied and accepted by one of these companies.  Hoping to hear from the other very soon.  Can anyone tell me the good/bad of these 2 companies.  Soap is out of Michigan and US Transcription is out of Iowa. 

Thanks in adance for your help/support. 

Do you mean TMT Transcription or Tidewater Medical Transcription sm
known as TMT. Their tactics are to look for you so it sounds like them.
TRS Transcription (Transcription Relief Services)

Please let me know if you work for this company and what you think of them. I am testing right now and hope they are a good company! :)

Thanks :)

Chase transcription/USA transcription

Does anyone work as an indepedent contractor for either of these companies?  If so, could you tell me a little bit about them.

Thank you

Don't confuse CC Transcription with C&C Transcription
Please don't confuse CC Transcription with C&C Transcription, they are two totally separate companies. Also C&C Transcription does NOT offer direct deposit.

D&L Transcription
Can anyone tell me anything about D&L Transcription??  Just wondering and curious.... THANKS!
TM Transcription - sm
Anyone ever work for TM Transcription?  I think it is Transcription Mommies which is kind of scary but I'm looking for a smaller co.
T-C Transcription
I started last week working for them.  I was promised my main account would be radiology.  Of course, lied to again.  They have ME on five accounts.  I have only done VA.  The instructions for the account are absolutely ridiculous.  Who has time to review 18 pages of dialogue for an account???  Then some have templates, and VA  you have to fill in headers and footers, and use periods in MD and other stupid stuff.  Then you have to do a monthly schedule, and I have had nothing but trouble with that.  I sent it as an attachment, as required, but it is not the "right" format.  I am supposed to have tech support fix my email, and the account manager is snooty as heck.  I am literally shaking I am so frustrated and angry with this place.  I took a chance and re-contacted my job I just resigned from, and I got my job back.  eTransPlus is a great place.  I highly recommend applying there.
QA vs. transcription
I have done QA for about 4 years and left the company, and I would like to do transcription, but I only type about 55-60 words a minute. Should I try different companies to see if they will hire me. And will speed come?  I have enough medical terminology, but it's the speed I'm concerned about.
QA vs. transcription
As you probably already know, quality is much more important than speed in transcription. Just keep plugging away with quality as your #1 goal, and the speed will come with practice. Also, I suggest trying one of those typing test websites to work on your speed. Good luck!
Transcription help

Is there anybody out there that would be willing to mentor an MT.  I try to find MT friends but have no luck, as nobody wants to give me their name.  I like these boards but sometimes I need longer explanations about things.  I was just wondering if there was a group or something or individuals who do that.

help with ICD-9 transcription

TM Transcription
Ever hear of TM Transcription?
I do transcription
but use Meditech. What platform does Transtech use?
Key Transcription, anyone?
They have an ad on the job board for oncology MTs, but they require up to 2000 lines a day.....seems a bit much to me.  Anyone know anything about this company?  Thanks!
A to Z Transcription
Does anyone have any information on A to Z Transcription Services?  I can't seem to find anything.  Thanks.
TM Transcription
Anyone heard of this company?
What is the status of this company?  Have they gone under yet?  I hear they are losing accounts left and right, just curious if any one is left working for them.
Actually it is SW Transcription....nm

Transcription at Its Best
... does anybody have any info on this company. I work for a psychiatric hospital and am considering working at home. I saw their ad in MT jobs but can't find anything in archives. Please help. Thanks.
Pj transcription
I did work for PJ for months and you might as well go back to school, cause at least then you dont expect pay, with PJ you wont get paid either. I did give notice and never recieved anything except experience. good luck
Pjs Transcription
All is works for as we speak. Your right, there is no excuse for it, and others will get caught in it too which is a shame to take advantage of new MTs.    
PJs transcription
I have nothing to gain from this posting. This business owner has already stolen over $500 from me and I will have to fight to get it back -- might get ugly. I do not take pleasure in demoralizing anyone. Just don't want it to happen to anyone else -- so here we go....word of mouth. By the way, congratulations on your business ownership -- it's quite an accompliment to run an honest, productive business.
PRN transcription
Does this company have radiology and urology? If this is the one I am thinking of, I was going to start working for them, but then the girl training me admitted that she didn't like certain reports or dictators and would skip them - that was all I needed to hear - of course that is what would be left for me to do - the crap work - and I have done all of that kind of work for most of the past 15 years - and I am tired of it - ESLs, long reports for little pay, etc. If you have the names of someone with the company - I would be happy to confirm if this is one in the same.

I tried this address and it says not found.
