iType is word based, iText Expander SM...

Posted By: Long-time Fnetter on 2008-08-24
In Reply to: FutureNet MTs, do you type in Word or do they have their own SM - looking

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.

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?
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.

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
Do they use MT-World software? Is it Word based? Easy? Productive? Thx. nm
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.
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.
Futurenet technologies. You like this program?

Does anyone else have trouble with iType?  I have been working only a couple of months and it seems to me my hands hurt more with this platform than some of the others.  My imagination??  I know I use my left thumb a LOT, with the alt key, and it's getting to be problematic.  Any suggestions?? TIA

Who uses itype?
Tell me more about it please Wendy.  I fear everyone is going to read your posts and think you are me or I am you.  Yikes!  Readers please remember there are many MTs with the wonderful name of Wendy. 
Used to be iType. sm
I agree with the above post. Mostly letters which are very time consuming as it is the MT's responsibility to fill in addresses. Hopefully, this has changed. Not the worst place in the MT world to work.
iType platform...sm
does anyone currently use this and it just takes FOREVER for the voice files to download with iPlayer? I have always had this problem.
I have been using iType platform for approx.
a year and have had no problems. Check with your tech to see if there is a problem.
