iType is word based, iText Expander SM...
is included in the program and it works great for me. They were able to import my old PRD files right into it. Cost zero. You do need your own spellchecker. Pretty good program, reasonably MT friendly.
Do they use MT-World software? Is it Word based? Easy? Productive? Thx. nm
PS - pay based on 65-char line, SPACES INCLUDED. SM
Also paid for weekend work, 2nd and 3rd shift differential. Bonus plan based on production.
Anyone know of a company, easy clinic work, easy Word format, dependable pay? Help!
small to medium company that works in Word or Word-based program - email me. nm
anyone work for Oracle - do they use Word or a Word-based program - e-mail me nm
Does the Emdat platform use Word or is it Word-based? nm
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. 
word expander
Is there a word Expander that can be used with IDXrad?
Shorthand is a very easy expander program to import dictionaries into.
Other than that, I agree with most of what you said about Spheris.  I didn't care for them either.  They weren't completely horrible, but I was on three different accounts in less than three weeks because they kept running out of work on my primary.  I couldn't keep all those account specs straight and was off of QA after a week.  The accounts were serious ESL, and the reports were ultra short.  I couldn't make any money with them either.  I put my resume out on the MTStars database and accepted a parttime IC position with a small MTSO.  I made three times as much there per month versus what I made at Spheris.
It's the ExText software. Easy to use. Has it's own expander, if you want, and line counting b
TransTech Word Expander
You say that you like TransTech. What do you think of the Word Expander that has NOTHING in it? That is what has been driving me crazy. I am trying to get them to let me use Smartype for MS Word, but tech told me they weren't sure I could even use it given the platform they have. Plus I would have to pay for it, but it would be worth it to get all of my THOUSANDS of shortcuts back. I would have to start over, but words and phrases already loaded, it won't take me long. With the expander they have, you'll be adding shortcuts until the day you quit as you have to stop and look up the spelling of a word if you're not sure of it, whereas with ST, the word is already there. You either use SmarType's shortcut or create one you like better.
So again, I take it the Word Expander having nothing in it doesn't bother you? I like the company too, but the small print and worthless word expander does not make me a happy camper. I'm trying to find a different company. Also they do pay decent, but most all companies pay decent if you have a lot of experience, which I do.
Word expander with Precyse? sm
Does anyone know what word Expander Precyse uses? Thanks.
Does anyone know which word expander Spheris uses? nm
So if we use an expander and don't actually "type" word, then

we don't get paid for those Expanders used, huh?

This just better not be why our line counts are so low with TT  and Extext !!

Keystrokes/word expander
Getting ready to take a job with Keystrokes on Meditech software....I can't believe there is not a word expander...what are others using. 
Shorthand, any expander that works with Word
Great company to work for - some dictators are difficult to understand at first, very good compensation.
Glad to see I'm not the only one with a feisty word-expander! I totally.. (nm)
I am not following how you make the macro, in word? or expander like shorthand? Help me.
changing docQscribe word expander to auto-correct

I have been hired at a company that uses Word auto-correct.  I have thousands of expansions in DocQScribe aco.user file.  I have found the file in my computer and brought it up on notepad.  Anybody able to have this imported to auto-correct?  I called the company support and they said it is doubful.  This may be a deal killer as it would take hundreds of hours to start from scratch.  Thanks for your time.

They have Scribe and Allscripts for Ortho. Both are internet based and easy to use. sm
I should mention that I do not know if those are the only two, but I think they are the majority of the accounts.
It can if it is word based
Any word based Expander can be copied over into Medware.
DVI - MS Word based
But I thought that was not Word-based. Is it? nm
Is Emdat word-based?
Is that a Word-based platform?
I just applied for that position and they e-mailed me with some questions.
Meditech word-based?
Anyone working for company that uses this?  From my understanding they count lines according to the amount of minutes you type.   Those of you experienced on this version of Meditech, please share some insight.  Thanks.
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. 
What is Iscriptor (Word based??) and ... NM
No, it's not Word based at all, totally different...nm
Their own platform. Shorthand, Word based. nm
It's not word based - keystroke combos are different. NM
Sounds great! Is it Word-based?
I am totally clueless about it!
yes, it is word based. And very user friendly. IMO.
It's Rapid Text-a Word-based
program. It has most of the templates built in. Very user friendly. Pretty much, if you can type in Word, you can use this platform.
MT-World Transcription - which is word-based. nm
Is the platform good? Word-based? Is the new
position still recruiting? Just passed the written and doing the transcription next..
?If it's not Word-based, it shares a lot of the same commands..sm
So whatever. Ctrl-C, V, X, etc. Agree it can be slow but has gotten better. By far not the best I've used, but also not the worst. Almost last, though. ShortHand is crap, but you can use IT. Good luck.
Word based expanders work with Merit
Hope that helps
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
Similar. ExText is Word based. I prefer it to Meditech for ease of use.nm
Is Apex an internet word-based platform? Havent heard of it...
It does work, you do not need to "make" it work.. it works in all word based programs.
Work is easy, very nice owner, pays weekly, work in Word.

WordPerfect vs. Word - similar? Is WordPerfect easy to learn? OK with both on one PC? Thanks. nm
Yes, it's totally word based, but it's also totally slow.
I haven't had a very good experience using dictaphone EXText. I wouldn't recommend anyone work on this platform. I don't know how anyone can say this is a very productive platform in any way whatsoever. Actually, it is the worst I've ever worked on. I like Bayscribe, DocQscribe, and many others over this setup.
I probably should have included the hospital...
...in the addressees.  My point was that this penny-wise-pound-foolish approach to cost cutting is creating a monster, whether it's the client hospital or the MTSO making the decision to go VR.  (I've never gotten through my skull how it's more cost-effective to send work offshore, that needs to be completely reconstructed by QA here.)  I guess that once you have developed the software and installed the system VR works for free and cheaper editing labor would cost much less than having it transcribed by an MT in the first place.  But at what additional cost?  These reports end up in court as part of law suits.  You would think a hospital would prefer to get it right rather than cheap, wouldn't you?  But aren't these the same hospitals that cut nursing staff, then work the remaining nurses into the ground because overtime is cheaper than paying benefits for more employees?  Maybe we just have to face that, like the buggy whip makers a century ago, our skills are no longer required. 
Spaces included
I have been with Fast Chart over 2 years. They DO pay for spaces and the paperwork confirms it. They also compensate for headers. The Radiology and Acute Care pays the most, 9 cents I think. Most importantly they have work.
