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.

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.

EXText for Word
What companies use EXText for Word and Transnet?
No, I used to work for OSi and they were good to work for, just didn't pay enough. I was offered a job with Trans-Tech, who pay much better, but then I ended up taking another offer.
We use EXText Word
expanders and normals, which is the only way to make it anymore in this business.
ExText word
Don't know what company you work for or if my short-cuts would apply, but I was taught very specific short-cut navigation keys, plus I can use my regular expanders/short-cuts within speech text as needed. Did you get a tutorial/training?
The correct word is stat. as it is a Latin abbreviation.
It is not all caps and there is a period after it 
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).
extext word/transnet
OSi and Trans-Tech use that platform.
Extext is basically like typing in Word.
Very easy. My favorite platform of any I have used.
Extext word speech question

I am a new MT, and I am greatful for my new opportunity, but I was told being a new MT means I have to produce like the experienced MTs and show what I can do.   I am working on Extext word speech program, and it seems like no one has an answer about using short cutkeys to produce quicker.  Is there any shortcut keys to use for this program and if so where are they?  Is there a shortcut key for using the numbering without going to the toolbar? any functions to move spaces quicker without clicking the mouse, etc.

I really want to do well.  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!!!!!!!

Is Dictaphone EXText compatible with Word 2007?

small to medium company that works in Word or Word-based program - email me. nm
I really don't know what part of the English language they do not get.. I think the word NO
comes to mind. I would not even be working that day when I'd get an IM, can you do a STAT? and I'd tell them no that I was heading out the door, so, your going to do it? and again, NO.. I said I'm heading out the door.  This would go on until I finally had to click the IM off. I felt badgered and I am not sure how much was just them not understanding or just being pushy. There is a fine line and I got tired of it so I quit.
anyone work for Oracle - do they use Word or a Word-based program - e-mail me nm
The ExText will be interfaced with your own Word version unless the company installed something
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.
They've used ExText in the past. Ad from 2006 said you need Word 2003. Offered 8 cpl for
Similar. ExText is Word based. I prefer it to Meditech for ease of use.nm
Does the Emdat platform use Word or is it Word-based? nm
Auto correct

Is there a way to keep the first letter becoming a capital when using an Expander after an abbreviation with a period?

Example:  1 tablet p.o. (and then when type bidx, expands to Twice a day, with a capital T because of period after the o.).  It seems I spend quite a bit of time fixing this type of thing.

Thanks for you help!

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.
They use a built-in expander like Auto Correct
Put them in auto-correct - copy and paste. Quick and easy! nm
Similar to DocQScribe, expansions go in auto-correct, horrible spell-check. nm
In my Extext experience count was about 10% less than the Word count. nm
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
A (only one word)
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!
One word. (sm)

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.
