I believe 10-key touch means

You can enter MR# and account numbers fast using the number buttons on the side of your keyboard.  Just put your middle finger on the 5 and look at the account number and enter it in without having to look at the keyboard, kind of like what you do with words. You are not actually calculating anything.

How do I get in touch with CIT?
Does anybody know how to get in touch with CIT
I have heard nothing but good about Charts in Time, but they don't have a website.  I would like more information about CIT.
How do you get in touch with them?
What is their web address?
Moretti-How do I get in touch-sm

with them? I would like to apply there. Do they have a website where I can fill out an application?

Thanks, Dorothy

Jester's Touch
Hmmm, well, I'm still not sure what the root of their problem is, but I was assured up front by the owner that they are very organized -- apparently not! I've been involved with companies that had a lot of turnover too, and if this is their case as well, I'm just not interested in playing that game again so I suppose it's just as well...
how can I get in touch with MDI Maryland. thx
What's the best way to get in touch with Transtech?

Apparently they are growing beyond their office staff and don't want people calling them unless it is an emergency and they aren't quick to answer emails.  I am not trying to start anything but seriously want to know the best way to get in touch with them where I can get a response in a timely manner.  I am interested in going to work for them after hearing all the good things.

I got in touch with Alphastaff...
since they do the payroll and they sent me my w2 electronically today. The emails stating they were ready apparently came out weeks ago, even before the ones that were mailed last week, but for whatever reason I never received one.
Thank you so much! I will get in touch with you:) You are generous.
Enough for me wouldn't touch it with
The managers are so out of touch!
They are so counting their money and bonuses they make by overhiring and having great TAT, they completely forget that we are making zero dollars because each of us are battling for each job. How self-centered and ignorant is that? Like a table which shoots its legs out from under itself, the table will soon be unable to stand!
W2 -- Anyone know who I can get in touch with to obtain my W2 from SPi? Here it is almost ...sm
the end of February and I have yet to receive one. I have all I need to file taxes except this one and the on from Focus. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. TIA.
It is interesting that some of us here are actually in touch
Networking can truly work between MTs, even on an anon board, and this is an example of it! I am glad MTs share experiences... even though it sometimes gets rough here, I think that LTMT is an example of a poster who always gives honest answers...
The ACLU won't touch this....sm
Why you ask? Well, first off, she works, and secondly I am sure she is in this country legally.

The ACLU doesn't take on the causes of native-born Americans unless, somehow, religion or politics is involved. THEN they will come after you with all their heavy-handed tactics. Like the atheist who wanted the pledge of allegiance rewritten because the phrase under God was an affront to his daughter. And the people who want the cross in the Mojave Desert taken down. I could go on and on.

Gourdpainter...I truly am rooting for you. Make an example of the really frivolous lawsuit this is. And a parting thought (tongue firmly in cheek of course), I don't think your company is in too dire financial straits if they can afford to sue you. I would ask for a raise.

Good luck.
Really?? I wouldn't let them touch my system

When you are sitting and typing and all of the sudden something is being typed in your computer while you watch, you wouldn't either! 

Yes, a couple years ago when looking I know I was in touch with them regarding....sm
a position and talked to the recruiter, I forget who it was, I will try to look in my records that I faithfully keep, but they were a recruiting company that works for many companies on contract as a middle man to help get prospective MTs, do some leg work, some phone calls, etc., weed things out, and send good prospects along, at least in my case with the lady I was speaking to.....have you spoken/communicated with them?
That's ridiculous. They must be completely out of touch.
I am desperate for work, but I won't even touch that. nm
I'd love to stay in touch via email...sm
just click on my user name. Look forward to hearing from you!
I gotta ya.. It really did sound like one certain company whom I will not name here as it will touch
off the debate and that gets old. Thanks for explaining.
Some companies prefer that - more of a personal touch. nm
It has a light touch though. I have had carpal tunnel

surgery and am very picky about keyboards.  I was pleasantly surprised that the one they went (Dell) had such a light touch. 

Congrats on the job - I think you'll be very happy. 

George says what he means or is it he means what he
but he sure does apologize in a way I've never heard a person whose company is valued at $8m a year apologize before and I've worked for companies who played who is the president of the week game! All I can say is that his personal interview about his high school reunion has a distinctly different style than his late January postings in which he degrenates the poster he tries to engage. Just remember George's quote we are misinformed.
I wouldn't touch this post with a 10 foot pole. nm
current info on jester's touch? i searched
archives and the only posts are from 2004 and 2003. thx!
That's exactly what makes them special. They haven't lost touch with the MTs. (sm)
That's why I believe they are such a success.  Seems like a lot of people are saying the same thing.  I believe this will be my last MT job - they are great.
WHAT is Touch Type? All I find is a typing test...nm
After getting in touch with ILHIMA and getting a copy, it was proven that the poster was wrong. sm
There are no spelling errors in the ad.

This person was trying to stir the pot for no reason and had people upset, thinking that an ad was run without sending it to KS for proofing.

What it means to me?
As an employee of Heartland, what my understanding is of what that means to me....I am still an employee, and more than likely the purchasing company will need me just like Heartland needs me now. Waiting for the conference calls to hear more information.
It means
That SoftScript screws everyone who has a brain between their ears.  The "newbies", and no offense intended, run the company because that is all they have because anyone with any experience has LEFT and rightly so.  They take your lines, make you think you are insane, have you work 24-7 to get a decent pay, and god bless if it is on time, which it actually has been x2 since they have been bashed on this board.  THAT IS WHAT ALL THIS MEANS.  The management is the worst, QA the worst, and lies beyond belief.  That is what all this means.  DUH.
It means they need it right now!
What stat. means to you as a Transcriptionist is that the turnaround needs to be fast! It would be identified in your accounts specs or your contract or whatever what the turnaround is.  Maybe it is an hour, maybe 2 hours, maybe 4 hours after it is dictated.  Whatever it is, it means that they need it back quickly. It has priority over anything else.
what does this means?

Im a newbie MT and trying to find a job.  I would like to ask what does this means as for compensation?  Is this good? 

Compensation Information: Subcontract, 9 cents for 65 keystrokes

what does this MEANS....
Yes, I think that is what it means. Not sure why they don't just say so LOL.
It means there is no more. nm
So that means
You can thank the politicians in DC (both parties) for passing NAFTA and giving us the SHAFTA...
What do you think this means?
I'm wondering what this new COO means for us down here typing away in the trenches.  Does anybody know anything about him? 
for now usually means

until we get all our people making half what you do trained, then  . .  . .


SE means
statutory employee. Like an IC (independent contractor) you pay your own taxes, set your own schedule, etc, but as an SE, the employer pays part of the SS taxes. No benefits come with either IC or SE positions, other than freedom.
Thank you all, that means a lot to me
exactly, which means
if you are going to claim yourself 100%, you need to present it also. Talk is so cheap.
OT for some means OOW for others

I normally work 3-11 pm.  I come on and look at my email.  The boss approved OT early this AM because we were out of TAT; by the time I punch in we're within an hour of dictation, BUT SHE LEAVES APPROVED OT UP THERE, and by 8 pm I'm OOW because all the day people got the OT (and are still on there wanting more) and I'm lucky if I get my 8 hours working secondaries putting in a 10 hour day.

How so? If they are IC, and know what that means,
OK, that means no. I'm sure if the SM

money was in your account right now, you'd be posting it all over the boards about how you were right.

My pay was in the bank on the day it was supposed to be-I wish yours had been also.

I'm not sure exactly what this all means
but I'll see what happens if i still decide to send my resume. Thanks for the information.
By all means, when you having nothing
proclaim yourself in charge of mtstars QA, fondle that typing police baton for a moment or two, then launch into full-blown attack mode and WHUP UP. FOP.
I would like to know what it means
Know what IM means, but what do they
I don't think that is what she means
I think (and I could be wrong) her hospital was bought by CHS and she was an in-house employee. She and her co-workers have to be trained as if they were new hires to Spheris.  They will go through a 90-day probation period as would any other new-hires.  The Spheris Specials Team will be covering her hospital's acounts while she and her co-workers are being trained.  Somewhere on here it was discussed that CHS or whatever their name is was out-sourcing their work to Spheris and it involved the hospital employees being transitioned at their current pay scale but then it could go down to the Spheris pay scale.  She's not training anyone with samples, etc.
So, not sure - EMR means??
Electronic medical records and does this mean they are entering template dictation or their own typing dictation, what?  Does that work, time-wise for them as they chug out 6-8 patients an hour.. 
What it means
is probably FELLOW. They probably saw it on some physician's certificate or some place in academia. The difference is that in medical school or academia, the title of FELLOW is earned, not conferred upon oneself's like the nonsense spewed by AHDI. And, like you, I think it stands for something unprintable. At least to my own mind, that is about all it is worth.
