Unless you have another way to play your voice files, use
No experience because I couldnt even take the transcription tests. The voice files would not play.
How about you? I was bummed. I was really interested in the job but I tried everything to get the voice files to play but they wouldnt. Oh well, I guess if it were meant to be, then I would have been able to take the test.
Just click on Play then click on Play again to pause dictation
I'm working in Bayscribe right now and that appears to be the only way to do it.

Play to play
Play again to pause
Play again to start play again

Hope that helps.
You should be able to right click on the files in

You could also double click the files.  Make sure express scribe is open even though it shoudl automatically open express scribe.

FTP is just to move files around, not play them. That would be software like ExText, ChartScript,
Don't need to record files. Pull them into Express Scribe (free on line) and play them thru there
After all these years, if I use Media Player, I just have my test outline ready and play the voice
I didn't think their voice files were of
good quality, lots of difficult dictators, and they are now offshoring.  MTSO said that files were surprisingly good.  I had to QA the entire report and basically retype most of it because reports were not surprisingly good.    MTSO was nice and up front about offshoring though. 
Yes, typed 3 voice files
The recruiter gave me three voice files and I had two hours to return them.  Not bad, one was kind of hard.  You only have to fill in the blanks, not transcribe the entire report.  Just like doing an edit.  From the time I applied on-line, got a call from the recruiter and tested and then offered a position was less than two days.  They sent me an equipment package and paperwork, I trained and now I am working my way through the three week full QA process.  Nice people so far, I am very happy with Medware.
Voice files disappering act

I am a former Transcend employee. 

I do hope all current and future employees have better luck than I did.

When I would ask about  lack ofwork I was told sometimes it was necessary to be flexible so I tried working at night. 

The platform I worked on had a queu wih all t jobs and you had to take in  that order.

At 10 PM there would be upwards of 100 jobs in the queu.

Then mysteriously they would vanish.  It was interesting that if, and I do mean IF, there any jobs were left they would be  ESLs or impossible dictators . 

There was no way they were not sent somewhere---- the average worker would be unable to sort the good from the bad dictators because the jobs had to be downloaded in order. 


As I said, I wish anyone with them good luck.  Some people must have had good luck.  I did not.  My team lead left shortly after Trancend aquired the company I was with.....mabye things would have been different if she had stayed. 

Two page of testing, ten voice files Med and Rad sm
for 8 cpl? No way. Thanks again.
Maybe they forgot to attach the voice files?
You usually get sent the tranny part as voice files and you'd do them in that particular
It is Chartscript. You can use WP5.1 or Word. Voice files
are DVI. 
Voice files that was sent to me were of totally awful quality!! sm
Would not touch it with a 10 foot pole and I have lots of years of experience.
Maybe a problem with voice files downloading like yesterday. nm

DOn't feel alone, I couldn't hear voice files and (sm)
thought there was a problem again, then realized I was using the wrong foot pedal. Double Duh for me this morning.
Are there any companies that I would download voice files and then send back but would be able to
transcribe on the move so I can travel but not use all my vacation time?  I wish I had paid attention earlier this year..but I didn't know I'd ever be in the position to need to do this.
they email you some voice files to type and send back
Test dictations are often bogus and not true voice files from the company. Need to ask. nm
I'd have to agree with the testing of 6 voice files. Turned me off. Who has time to spend doing a
of those tests... I need a job not a day of testing.
Any place to get free practice voice files or does anyone offer testing that could be accessed w/o

Click on State Boards to the left then click on PA
click on your post and then scroll down a bit and click

on related messages.  You'll find posts there and also there have been posts within the last couple of weeks if you'll scroll down. 

There is nothing good to say about SoftScript.

They play a lot of games. Pay was on
time, but they do have their favorites who get the good work. Used to run out of work all the time and have to wait for more overflow to come in, so bailed out.
Play favorites.....
pay is good, but they still play favorites and some typists make off like bandits on cream of the crop dictators while the rest of you get the scum.
It all boils down to who will play the game
There have been a lot of good MTs at OSI. Most of those who do excellent work and have years of experience have left OSi because of tactics such as this. She may have a good work ethic and sunny disposition and do good work but is not in a better position to supervise other MTs who are better all around. The point is that people new to either the MT industry or to OSI are most often the ones promoted because they are most assuredly YES people since they don't have enough experience to know any better that OSI consistently does things such as break the wage and hour law among other things.
make sure your player is set to play
Can't play the game unless you have the equipment.

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!
Two companies that do not play games
are MDI-MD and Landmark. Good honest people at both companies.
It's one of the tricks that companies play on us
so that they can control our productivity, penalize and pay less, despite getting their work done.  The same thing happened to me a year ago, we were asked to follow dossier given by the client, but then a few QAs followed AAMT BOS, etc.  Nevertheless, we were penalized left and right and eventually when we stood up and reported their actions, then it stopped completely.
The beauty of this job has been that I can play with Junior (sm)
and still make decent money. It all depends on the company you work for. And 20 years from now, I'll be doing something else.
Help! How do I play this test file?
I'm taking a test for a job.  I was sent a file that opens in Creative MediaSource.  How am I supposed to transcribe this when it's going so fast?  I need to use my foot pedal but there is no option.  Please someone help me!  I want this job!
our fund of knowledge comes into play

with each report we type.  If that doesn't justify a decent compensation, I don't know what will. 

Should we just hop to the problem parts of the report since we are only getting paid for that part of the report, eschewing the rest, not making sure it makes sense?  It's outrageous, and we should all refuse to do it unless we get paid the same as straight typing.  Why should technological advances cause us to lose pay?  No one else is taking a cut except us, yet we are the glue that holds this profession together.  I know it's all been said before, but it's wrong, and if the MTSOs read this board, they will at least know where we stand on it. 

We earned our knowledge through blood, sweat and tears over the years, and we should be compensated for it.  Why shouldn't we?!

Ask about what role American MTs will play versus their

I'll play - EZ lunch decisions
I don't have to make the decision the night before or in the morning whether to pack a lunch or buy. Can decide to make rice in the cooker, microwave a meal or just eat a sandwich, or even not eat till I'm famished, all up to me and not a clock.
I know, that wasn't the point. It was simply the play on words....
......simply the play on words in the Google blurb that fit the situation, not the whole related article.
Can you download Express Scribe and play the file thru there? nm
ho ho ho but the hosp can play Russian Roulette w/going to court with

Those medical records became cheaper for hospitals how?  When they go to court with those expensive incorrect records and LOSE, wonder if they think it was cheaper?


I had that happen and had to play them in Windows media player-nm
You'd play lousy poker - obvious bluffer.

Don't have to have the last word to have the last laugh, and I'm having a good one.

Such an easy mark. . . such a short fuse.  WOO!  I am laughing out loud. 

Fatcat, didn't we play chain socks once?
I hope you're the same Fatcat from the other board.
DocQ, hmmm, how to play audio from keyboard??
Can you share.  Didn't know, worked on platform twice and nobody ever said this.???  Can you share?
Very similar thing happened to me. They play head games.
Your friend is better off moving on - but I am so sorry this happened to her - they really are a horrible company.
Odd way of doing business. Most places dont have time to play those games. They just get rid
of people and move on.
