Does anyone know what Transtech pays for its Escription accounts?
I'd be willing to work weekends if the price was right. I've just seen too many Escription accounts pay too low, which to me, is 3 cpl and lower..One company actually offered 1.5 cpl. No thanks.
Just be aware that not all Escription accounts pay the same. I worked for one company on Escription
struggling to maybe make $50 in 8-10 hours. I didnt know the difference as that was my first job on that platform and I just thought it was not a money maker. Then, I switched companies. I average $20-30 an hour and once I made $50 in an hour. I tried yet another company and I was lucky to make $9 an hour. The bottom line is that not all companies are alike, even though they use the Escription platform. What I have found is that goes according to how they set it up i.e. paying for footers, headers, spaces etc. Just dont be shocked if you dont make what you think you will. The companies know how to set it to where it benefits them and not you. As is the norm, not all companies are created equal out there regardless if they all use the same platform. That is what I am getting out.. Good luck.
Escription work is on Word. Transform has a SUPER word-based platform and as of yet does not do VR editing.
For eScription VR Transtech seems to pay the best by far.
MDI-FL hiring for eScription accounts
We just acquired three Escription accounts and our MTs LOVE THEM. Please e-mail me at Liz@medicaldictation.com or call me at 1-800-205-7047.
It is a fun program to work on.
Hope you are keeping safe down in Texas. God bless. We are all thinking of you guys in the way of that horrible storm.

Anybody hiring for eScription accounts? nm
I work on escription accounts.
pay 4/9 for 60-90 days, can't remember which, then 4/10. Very nice to work for. I've been there since Octoberish.
It's about average on eScription accounts.
I get 4/8.4 as an employee.
Has TT always had eScription accounts? Is this new? Just curious..nm
I can only speak of the Escription accounts.
It's been low for a long time so if that is the account your on and you can be flexible, go for it. AND I do mean flexible.
I edit for Transcend on accounts using eScription. sm
I really like it, make more money than transcribing, and am in and out of more reports. And it's a lot easier on my wrists. I've always found the people nice to work with, in spite of the horror stories being related about the hiring process.
I have no experience with any editing programs other than eScription being used at Transcend/MDI, but you could request assignment to accounts using eScription. One thing, since new accounts (ones often needing new employees) typically are transitioning to VR, you could start out heavy on transcription of reports as the computer learns to take over that job, with a few weeks of lots of corrections to eScripted reports, and then finally doing almost all editing on a trained account. I think it's going to be that way on any account new to VR with any company. Transcend did adjust the pay rate as the account I was working on progressed so I never lost money and eventually ended up making more. Good luck wherever you end up.
Good luck. Are you on the Escription accounts?
I like it there. I've had my moments there, but I haven't found anything better out there so I'm staying for the long haul.
Yeah if I remember right, they are one of the low-paying Escription accounts out there, maybe 1.5-2
cpl or something ridiculous. Not actually livable US rates...
With Nuance buying Focus, what will happen to the eScription accounts? sm
I really don't think eScription is going to like the fact that Dictaphone/Nuance is going to be working on their platform and learning their secrets to their software.........do you?
This is so interesting to me as I am an eScription editor. Maybe it is time I start my own business again and contact all of the eScription hospital accounts or contact eScription and get their input on this.
In reading Nuance's press release, Bringham Women's Hospital is an eScription account not a dictaphone account. Very interesting......Don't you think? Would love to hear opinions on this.
They send a majority of the Escription accounts to India. There are a few of the hospitals that said
they could not send their work there but I suspect they do anything. In any event, yes, a lot of the easier work goes to India and they are proud of this affliation, not bad it doesn't pay my bills. Then, they wonder why we are so angry about India taking our jobs.
TransTech, any current info? sm
The information in the archives is pretty dated. If anyone has any recent information such as ease of platform, pay, incentives, etc., I would appreciate it! TIA
Companies w/Escription accounts that offer affordable family insurance??
I realize that affordable is subjective so whatever information anyone can give woudl be appreciated. The majority of Escription accounts offer IC only. Thanks
this cracks me up "ALL my current accounts..are .wav formatted."
the OP says, However, ALL my current accounts and most of my accounts throughout my career are .wav formatted. And I started with tapes and a Selectric typewriter. Oh, and the word ergonomic had not been invented yet...uphill both ways, ya know
Any current TransTech MTs out there that can offer any info
regarding pay, platform, etc. Any info appreciated. Did archive search and only came up with 2 posts. TIA!
Current information on WordZXpressed, how they are to work for, accounts, platform etc.. anyone??
Thanks for any input you may have.
TransTech does and SOME of DTS in Tenn. accounts do. nm
Are all of TransTech's accounts out of work?
When are the new Transtech accounts starting?
Transtech has new accounts coming soon
Transtech will be hiring for new accounts soon
Does Transtech have ER or Radiology accounts? TIA (nm)
Sounds like TransTech and it's NOT how the majority of accounts are. nm
When I worked at TransTech, there was a doctor on one of the accounts sm
who stuttered. At first, I was really frustrated, but then I also saw it from his side, how frustrating it must be to know what you want to say and then face that challenge. I do not know about the physician you are referring to, but in the case I am referring to, I do not think the patient record suffered because of the doctor's stuttering. I just kind of grimaced when I got him. You would think that people like that, as well as the ESLs who are so challenged they can barely form a sentence, would hire a P.A./N.C. to do their dictating for them. Go figure.
Sorry you have that to deal with.
TransTech has 2 huge Editscript accounts
Info on GIMT and TransTech oncology accounts
Anyone out there familiar with the oncology accounts for GIMT or TransTech are advertising for? Would like to know if there is enough work, platform they use, general pay range. How flexible are they on scheduling?
Medquist or TransTech? Comparable offers from both. Who has the better accounts
better platform, reliable pay days, etc.
Yep, exactly -- TransTech lost accounts and I truly believe is in financial trouble right now !
That small overflow account acquired has not paid yet, and the HUGE hospital they lost is no longer paying them.
I really think TT is in lots of trouble right now money-wise. Keeps changing payroll companies due to *floating* and not having the money for the payroll company, is my thoughts.
We had the best payroll company in the world -- but TT all of a sudden changed . . . and I mean ALL OF A SUDDEN, so much so that all our payroll information was WRONG, etc. Horrible time with this new payroll company, but it was a FAST decision made on TT's part. Probably had no choice except to change payroll companies.
TT is not stable as far as financial backup. Just imagine after losing a HUGE hospital account how much less money was coming in this week and prior. Those little overflow accounts just don't bring in a lot of monies. Dictaphone controls how much money TT gets -- due to Dictaphone owning the platform and dividing up the work between Dictaphone's customers !
times for TT now.
TransTech has no work; that is why; lost accounts; overhired significantly BAD nm
Does TT care? No, they get their big paychecks no matter if the MT's do or not.
TransTech accounts are ALL very quickly going to VR and pay is half line rate
If you like VR and the pay cut, then TT will be a good fit for you. If you are experienced and will let someone pay you less than you are worth, then go for it.
Other than accounts going to VR there and MT pay cut for editing VR reports, TT has been a good fit for me. I am very disappointed in the recent VR pay cuts.
They are changing platforms and cutting our line rate in half as the accounts go live with VR.
Maybe if this deal loses clients, I can work out an at-home deal with one of my current accounts.
Or else get a McJob at McDonald's flipping McBurgers....
MOST of TransTech's accounts are obtained through Dictaphone/Nuance -- not by any TT mgmt people
out seeking work for all the MT's that they have recently hired on. That is not a good thing when Dictaphone has control of how much work TT gets, when we can have some work from them, etc. They have other MTSO's who want work for their MT's, too, so Dictaphone/Nuance has to share with all MTSO's who have contracted with them to use their equipment; thus, doling out jobs as Dictaphone/Nuance sees fit for their good.
Are they losing accounts. Do most of their accounts stay for long period of time. I have
heard pros and cons about the quality of their work. I guess it is much cheaper than other companies can offer.
Because the girls that monitor the accounts in the office were told the accounts either go on DQS or
move on. All accounts to be with MQ must be on DQS and no more different platforms. ONE ONLY DQS. They can send more work overseas then.
MDI-FL but not all accounts. Only the internet-based ones. C-phone accounts are fine.
So, yes, let me clarify before everyone gets in an uproar.. There is work IF you want to use a C-phone. IF you signed up for an account that is internet-based, you will be disappointed. Not enough work to go around. Just my personal preference.. I have no desire to do a dial-up C-phone account using my long distance.
Some do and have good accounts and fully loaded ESL accounts
Take a look at what is happening in India. For the first time, workers there have money to get themselves into debt by buying high priced items (cars for example). They now protest lower castes being allowed into universities at almost double the previous allowance. Wait until they are highly in debt, begin to feel entitled to a wage equal to that paid inthe US and then, try to form unions, get tossed out into the street and sit back with some Ben and Jerry ice cream and watch the economy collapse and all that dictation come back across the ocean. Timing is everything.
Find out which accounts they are hiring for. They have some ESL accounts that are extremely
difficult to do. I dont know how many accounts they have altogether but as I say, a few are very difficult and I actually dont have a problem with ESLs but these accounts are almost totally ESL. I dont do them anymore.
Well it sounds like no work happens a lot at DSG. How are the accounts as far as decent accounts
and their QA.
Different accounts have different platforms. Most accounts require sm
high speed but I am not sure if satellite is OK.
I don't think that they're hiring right now. I spoke with my lead on Thursday, who said they are focusing on making sure everyone has enough work and moving PTers to FT, eventually moving towards FT only with only weekends as PT. Not 100% sure when that is though.
Hmm..well it goes to show how different it can be between accounts. My "high" ESL accounts s
at WMX are pretty easy in my opinion as well. I wish I had a better answer for you. Hang in there if you can. You have to do what is right for you.
No. TransTech is out of Texas TTS is in New Hampshire. TransTech
Well I don't work for Transtech and this discussion isn't about Transtech...
and that is not age discrimination....give me a break...
I've heard that DaVenture Health Partners was recently made an approved vendor, but as of today they are not posted on the eScription website yet.
Has anyone out there worked on Escription? If so, what are your thoughts. Can you make any money at it since it pays so much less?
Does anyone know of any companies that use Escription, OTHER than Transcend and MDI-FL? Thanks in advance.
