No PTO for part-time. Not sure if you can work part-time or not since recent rule change. sm
You do pay a deposit for their equipment.
Time change info......sm
Go to Microsoft.com and look for patch for time zone edit...easy to find..should be on the top. Download and you'll be fine.
Okay. Flex your time. Change your schedule if necessary. sm
If you have been in this business any length of time, you should know how work volumes fluctuate, especially around the holidays. 
I took the plunge too ... definitely time for a change. Thanks to all for the input. nm

I'm thinking............Time to change careers.
Why do people struggle so hard until they are so miserable that they live, sleep, and breath misery. You are right though about struggling, it's never going to change so I am taking classes to get my coding degree. I am choosing NOT to be miserable anymore.
You fill out a time sheet. If you need to make a change sm
to your schedule, you just email them.  They seem pretty flexible about everything.

Hope this helps.

Time change is earlier this year so computer
probably will not ask you to change now, may ask you  at the usual time. 
EX-MQer maybe its time to make a change in your name and get on with your life
Have a wonderful evening
When is an SE allowed to change to employee (full-time) status?

Is it 11/01/2005 ?????

Thanks so much for informing us who have not received the packet as of yet.

Weren't they at one time OmniMed? If so, they were terrible then! Leopards do not change their
companies change all the time - her info is old, she said. (sm/small message)
A turnover in managers,QA, leads, even recruiters can make an impact and happens all the time, so you never know; old info - grain of salt. newer info more reliable and needs to be found while considering.

Yes I thought it sounded nice. Just hard to change but it is time. Always a little bit of anxiety
about another company and leaving what you know and sort of starting over but sometimes it is time. You know, the fat lady sang.
Nope, more like a matter of time before we're all working for chump change.
Your puter should ask you Sun. morning about making the time change. Just follow the 'custom'
...got played. They also had accts using MedRite, so maybe
Since when has our "Uncle" ever played by the rules?
If it's good enough for the big-shots at the top, then it's good enough for me.
That very scenario played out for me last month.

Transcription Express was hiring ICs, but expected me to work every evening after 6pm and every weekend, both days.  They said that the owner might agree to giving me Sunday off, but nothing else.  Not exactly an IC position!!!

I think Transcription Express is hiring again.  So, any of you who enjoy being called ICs but treated as employees, there's an opportunity for you.

I hope the IRS has Transcription Express on their list of companies to audit.

I once had a supervisor who played the kids-card all
Now that was one situation where I'd rather she stayed home with him rather than dragging him to work and allowing him to disrupt everyone in the office.
And MQ is still trying to figure out ways to keep accounts and MTs since they played hardball with
everyone and got caught. I dont think they will ever overcome this situation entirely in my opinion. Our office has certainly lost accounts and has more threatening to leave. I dont think there is one happy person in that office anymore where I work. It is pathetic and on it goes.
In the "old days", the machine on my desk that played the tapes was called the transciber. sm

People who type the dictation are called transcriptionists.  I realize in this new day and age where people would rather google, spell check and guess rather than look it up in a dictionary or other word reference and actually know the meaning of what they are typing, such things make little difference, but it means something to me.  I also have hated the word typist since I do so much more than just copy type.

I know ... pay me and you can call me anything is the predominating theory here.  I just have noted that it is usually the Indian-based company that uses the term transcriber.

I use express scribe with my INfinity USB pedal. My is totally compatible.
Nothing will change unless we make it change..SM
As long as we accept the exploitation that this MT profession has reduced us to, it will keep going on.  The top of this is the outsourcing.... well, get your legislators involved....better yet, the MEDIA.  How many patients know their private medical information is being outsourced to halfway around the world? The squeeky wheel gets the grease.  Do the patients know that their info won't be sold by some unscrupulous MT (halfway around the globe) to insurance companies, etc., making all this Medical records privacy a joke. It's not just our T-shirts being made in other countries; it's our most personal, private medical information, of which the public is not being made aware of.  Not to speak of undercutting out profession to the bare bone.  Granted, most US MTs are willing to work below market wage just to have a job, especially in economically-deprived areas, where outside jobs are scarce, and kids need to be fed and mortgages need to be paid.  MTSOs know this.  I'll bet they'll be the first to lobby against any action against outsourcing.  (Wouldn't you be...if you got people to work for pennies while you're raking in the big $$$'s ?  Still, notwithstanding the outsourcing problem, we're still going along with all the BS...working for pennies, whatever the client wants, he gets... ever notice how all of the MTSO flak seems to be re. unpaid work...mostly, demographic issues we're not even paid for... bec. It has to be done.. Part of the job... The client put the wrong info but we have to correct it...all unpaid work.  Just give me a job with nothing but straight transcription, w/o the unpaid/demo. flak..I'll take it even at the present, absurd pennies-per-line state of the profession.
Transcription Express
Anyone have experience with this company out of Houston?  TIA
Express Scribe

Does anybody know if earphones can be used with Express Scribe?  I can't find any information about this anywhere.  Thanks. 

had the same problem when I got my new computer. Easiest way is to take it from desktop, and you can drag it into escribe.
Do you have Express Scribe......
Transcription Express, Inc. ...
out of Arizona.  Anyone have any information (good or bad) regarding this company?  Thanks!!
Transcripition Express
I tested with them, very simple. That was going on two weeks now.  For this one account I was checking on they paid 8 cents a line, no more.   I used DocQScribe for testing and never heard back from them.   I would have liked to heard back from them though regardless to see if I passed or failed.  I was going to be typing ER reports.  Good luck. 
freedom to express

I agree with the above poster. If you can't vent to people who are in the field about your good or bad experiences, then this is not a democracy. Personally, I do keep a lot of mine to myself basically because I don't like dealing with negative people who will judge me. It stems from not having a very supportive family and not being able to express myself growing up. What is heaven for one is hell for another but either way, people need to express themselves and get it out.

In this profit-driven healthcare industry, MTs are under appreciated and in many cases abused by management and perhaps isolated and ignored by other MTs. We definitely need a support system and these forums are supposed to serve as a support system out of the work place where we can vent and hopefully be comforted by kind words. We work in an industry that refuses to acknowledge the fact that if it were not for us, they would not have jobs. We are the industry but many of us do not feel we have much clout in the way we are treated, i.e. coldly, indifferently and there-are-more-where-you came from attitude. Lets start cooperating instead of competing especially in the forums and let people have their say and try to embrace with kindness. We all need a pat on the back.


Express Scribe
I second that nomination! I'd do it, but I do not express myself
eloquently enough and this issue is too important for it to be written in a way that might come across as abrasive or offputting, even though that would not be the intention.
Has anyone used Express Scribe to take an on-test SM
test? I downloaded it, but I can't get the function keys to work. Any help would be appreciated. I am technically dumb! TIA
Those who applied at Transcription Express, sm
Has anyone heard anything back from Transcription Express?  I applied on Sunday and have not heard anything and was just curious as to whether anyone else has heard anything.  I have a lot of experience and thought I would at least receive the opportunity to test.  I do realize, however, that with the number of views the ad has received, they are probably wading through tons of resumes.  TIA
How to load Express Scribe
If you already haven't found out how to do it, save the files to a folder on your desktop, then go into Express Scribe, click on Load or load files (I don't have it on this computer, so am doing this from memory), then click Browse, then click on C drive, then click Desktop, click on the folder, then click on the files you want to load.  In my experience, Express Scribe will only load a job if it has been saved in a folder.  Hope this helps and good luck
Just feel the need to express my thoughts on VR, ASR, etc. ..sm
It is just tough to sit back and watch this evolve. I've been in this profession for many years now, and have watched voice recognition start to surface in some capacity years ago. It still is not where it needs to be, and I do not believe it will ever be as efficient as a skilled MT. Regardless, what really bothers me is that there are so many in this field being sucked in by these companies who are hiring for .03-.05 line of so called voice recognition editing when in reality you are basically typing the entire report over again, or taking just as much time as you would to type from scratch. The other scenario, in my opinion, these job offers being filled are simply to cover the incompetent work that comes in from overseas. Hire 100 Indian MTs and have a few good U.S. editors or voice recognition MTs who are willing to work for pennies, and what a profit you make as a company. I just wish more MTs would put their foot down and say enough. Let these large nationals lose their experienced MTs, and they will either fail as a company or up the pay scale for a qualified MT.
Transcription Express - Wisconsin
Does anyone have any information on this company?
Express Scribe does play that!(sm)
Not sure about Gear Player, but in open Express Scribe and go to settings, and then settings, and go to the tab files, and you should be able to check the box there. You can also go to the WMA file right click and select open with and then select your Express Scribe. Good luck on the test!
Are you talking about Express Scribe?
It's a little primitive, but it works well enough to take a test with.
Huh? I'm using Express Scribe v4.3 with Vista - nm
I did download express scribe but sm
I may be doing something wrong. I can't open this file in anything but windows media and it goes directly to windows media. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?

BTW, why did you leave and do they pay on time?

I tried downloading it into Express Scribe and it wouldnt go into that.
It's a mystery and they have never gotten back to me so I assume as I cannot play their sound file, I wont be considered for the job. I tried everything to get it to work.
isnt express scribe free? sm
i had to purchase my own bos and the software/pedal they told me to purchase was $129 (with their discount). they did provide the spellchecker, drug book, and Smartype though, so that was good. thanks for the fyi.
foot pedal- Express Scribe

Yes, I've got that far.  I'm actually able to play now, but I still don't have all the kinks ironed out.  When I play, it is warbled...I'm sure the problem is with my settings and my F-keys...can you help me?!  At least I know now this pedal does work thanks to your telling me yours did...I kept plugging and accidentally discovered I had to click on Express Scribe when I signed in.... Thank you for your help.

If you are using Express Scribe, you can use your function keys and...
the instructions are in the Help section or maybe it is in Setup.  Good luck on the test!
I used express scribe. Worked just fine.
I like the post and wanted to express MY opinion, just as you
You can also use Express scribe with a foot pedal and do it that way... nm
Bytescribe pedal & Express Scribe
I use a Bytescribe pedal with Express Scribe all the time and it works great.
Download Express Scribe.....it's free
Well I was trying like h--- to get my DQS pedal to work with Express Scribe and no way.
Thanks for telling me you had the same problem.  I thought I was the only stupid one that was having this problem.  I thought Infinity would work but it doesnt.
I'm beginning to suspect it's the Xanax Express n/m
