do what I do - type in WP and then convert to Word - sm

Posted By: give it a try on 2005-09-15
In Reply to: WordPerfect companies - T.J.

All my "stuff" (and you know what I mean) is on WP and I didn't want to spend the $$ to get all new for Word ... so, I do all my typing in WP, do a basic WP spell check, then open the document in Word and save as a Word document for my final proofing. I know some other MTs just proof as they go, but I find a double WP spell check/Word final proof gives me pretty near 100% accuracy. The clients get what they want (Word, accuracy) and I get what I want - awesome production out of WP, even accounting for converting and proofing. Works for me!

Do you type in Word?
If so, maybe I can help you. I have to pull in a template with all the doctors' names on the side and I cannot charge for that. After I type each letter, I highlight the text, then use the Word character count including spaces. I take this total and divide by 65. I also, unfortunately, have to generate a report for this client with each patient's name and the number of lines for each letter.

At any rate, that is what I do. I hope I was of some assistance to you.
You just type in Word. Very simple. nm
FutureNet MTs, do you type in Word or do they have their own SM
platform? Thanks
And I like how they say to keep Word open and type as they come in...sm
Like I am going to sit here for 8 hours and wait for one job an hour to come in and type it right away so it can meet the clients needs.  I understand it's slow today cuz of the holidays but sick of their emails telling us we need to be on when they are off and there isn't even work.
Cathy Type Word Processing
Anyone ever hear of this?  Any info on pay, staff, etc.  TIA!
I type in Word and use the Scribe platform...
but I don't use a C-phone...
Cut & paste. They expected us to type in Word and
I've been with AccuSTAT WI for 7 years. We don't use VR. We used MS Word to type in and depe
on the accounts, Dictaphone C-phone, regular c-phone or Lanier VXP player.
And don't try to type them into Word or an electronic dictionary to check spelling. Recruiters h
convert shortcuts
We are able to convert shortcut files from many programs, including DOS based, for use in other systems/platforms. Tim S. at technocare@adelphia.net
No, but TT can convert your expansions over for you. sm
They did it for me. 
WMX uses Shorthand. If there is a way to convert your files (sm)
the trainers will know how.
The platform is Word. Their program works with Word but does not change how Word works. nm
The benefits just changed the first part of this month. I don't have them but I remember them being reasonabl for a single person. Family and spouse was not reasonable in any way (in my opinion).
small to medium company that works in Word or Word-based program - email me. nm
ExText is integrated with Word. Auto correct is a part of Word.
ExText is a Word based platform. When the page opens for you to type the document it will be just like you are typing in MS Word.
anyone work for Oracle - do they use Word or a Word-based program - e-mail me nm
Just wanna work in Word - need company that works in WORD! nm
Their program works with Word and does not change how Word functions. sm
You use your own expander. Overall I feel it is user friendly and I like it.
Does the Emdat platform use Word or is it Word-based? nm
Word for Word Medical Transcription
Pros and cons please.
In his ad, he's asking for Word Perfect, not Word, if that matters. 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. 
Now I wish they would just call me back......no word no word and
What is up with these MT companies that advertise. They don't even answer. I have a great resume, tons of experience. I'm confused.
Webmedx watches every min you type or don't type.
I personally didn't like logging off to go to the bathroom or get a drink or whatever. Drove me nuts. They were too regimented for me. Not sure if you are aware they do that. Part of working at home is the flexibility and they just weren't. Good Luck
word for word company
does anyone know about word for word transcription company?  how are they to work for, platform?  thanks in advance!
I was told I could use word pad since I don't have word

I have 1 computer to speak of that I did not buy personally.  the company has their own platform and their own computer to be rented.  I would not be typing in word.  I have never had a problem testing this way before.  I am not saying certified is better.  I was explaining my circumstance.  I have my own personal computer ordered for my use and I wanted to test fast without waiting. geez.

"overtime" is not a generic word. "incentive" is a generic word. Over time means time
In Word..
Select the tools menu and then Autocorrect. Then check the box next to capitalize First letter of sentences.

Are you using Word? sm
If you are using Microsoft Word you can change the background to something that suits your eyes and the text to a lighter color. 
One word - RUN!!!!
Owner is not all there, if you know what I mean. There are better places to work. Let them hire overseas. Perhaps those workers will put up with their garbage treatment.
Everything is done in Word
plenty of samples though, and she pays per gross line, not 65 characters.
I have Word 2003 and it works just fine

One word? Looks like 6 to me.

I worked for them and they can be fair, which is hard to find these days with others. I was a new MT and they gave me a chance that no one else would consider doing. good luck
Same here...no word nm
The new word for lay off.

The new word is idle, used as a verb.  I doubt that the MTs will remain idle for long.  What terrible writing, and what a terrible deal for MTs.  I wonder whether Ormond will be happy when people from another country are transcribing his family's medical records.


Meanwhile, the company issued a federal layoff notice this week that it will idle 102 workers in its Heartland Information Services medical-transcription unit. Seven employees are in Toledo. A company spokesman said the cuts will occur in early July.

Toledo Blade.



Still no word.....sm

Patience is not one of my greatest virtues! lol  Anyway, if someone gets a response from Editors Wanted, could you email me please?  Thanks!

Take MY word for it, -
I simply must disagree...
Take my word for it,
I've been paid both ways. Yes, they will say that all the exams equal themselves out, but with CT and MRI exams, etc. you can get some really long reports. You may get lucky and have short reports, but I highly doubt it!
Does anybody still use MS Word
I have started with two companies in the past six months (as an IC) using MS Word on my own computer, and no sooner did I get up to speed than they switched over to a platform.  I can learn the platforms ok but just want to type and get paid; no BS.  The platforms I've worked on all created more problems than they solved, especially with word expanders.  And the line counts are no longer under your control, you have to accept whatever they tell you.  Am I the only one who feels this way?  The people I'm with now tell me to have patience and they'll work out the bugs in the system, but tell that to my mortgage company!

Anyone have any info on this company? 


Word for Word
I worked for a company by that name about 30 yrs ago in New Mexico.  Wondering if it is the same ladies, Sandy and Marie, who may have started it up again after the facility they  worked for outsourced everything overseas.  If it is true, both of these ladies are wonderful to work for. Please let me know, I would truly appreciate it. 
Word for Word

Thanks for responding!  I will definately let you know once I have found out!

Word for Word
Has anyone had any experiences with them, good or bad?  TIA!
word for word
just wondering since there is an ad for IC on the job board.  they say pay commensurates with experience.  this job hunting is scary.  are there any good ones out there?
word for word thank you

I really appreciate it.  I would love an IC status as I had SE before with my company that no longer has it.  I would not mind trying something parttime till I see how the land lays.  Thanks again, very sweet!

I could not agree with you more! I don't like these so-called MT friendly platforms either. Give me Word and FTP any day! Right again! They do bog your computer down. I just haven't found any that are as good as plain old Word. Production is higher with Word. The faster, better way to go! Rah! Rah! Rah!
one word....RUN!
They are not the most honest company to work for and their platform is a PITA at best.
