I have worked on a few different platforms and this one works well. Very explicit account specifics as well so it makes it much easier to do your job.

Their platform is easy to learn...
Softscript's work interface is three-fold: a proprietary report client which downloads, uploads, and retrieves ADT; an audio player in the background; and MS Word which automatically opens the report for you--all you do in Word is type and save. I don't see why Instant Text wouldn't work; MS Word itself has a similar auto-replace function as well.
The platform is Scribe. EASY to learn and use.
The line count is straight 65 characters with spaces and you can see your count which is important to me.

Today is supposed to be my day off. I needed to do a bunch of errands and catch up and do closets. So far, it's almost 10:30 and I have been on here all morning! I need to scoot!
Platform is fairly easy to learn, pay is

low/average, trainers/supervisor are helpful (at least the ones I've dealt with have been), bennies 35+ weeks.

Platform super easy to learn
I had heard horror stories about SoftScript before I accepted the job (realized you can't believe everything and took a chance). I gave them a shot and have been thrilled. The platform is super easy compared to some of the other Nationals I have worked for. Pay is a about 8 cpl, but that seems standard for Nationals. Tons of work.

I would recommend SoftScript to anyone and I have worked for the worst, MQ, Transcend, Medsribe, etc.
TT has plenty of work. The platform is super easy to learn and
I'm not having any trouble at all making good line counts doing ESL discharge summaries. Super nice people as well.
easy to learn, but not good for productivity
ChartScript easy to learn/use/good line count?

Please post any experiences you have had with this platform. Also,does Diskriter provide good insurance and have plenty of work?

Is it easy to get required line counts?

Great place - ExText is easy to learn and user friendly. Good pay. Nice, COMPETENT people.
I love it. It is fast, easy to learn and easy to use.

Pay is good, platform very easy. Got line count within days. (sm)
The people you work with/for are extremely helpful. There is an incentive plan which they will explain to you during interview process. No 401 match - that is a bummer. First year PTO only a few days, but picks up the next year.

Apply and have the recruiter go over it all with you. It is well worth the time.

Good luck.
been with spheris 4.5 years, easy platform, good clinic account
It's easy to learn...

Not sure what kind of advice you're looking for... I don't think you should be freaking out.  It's the best platform I've ever used and it's very easy to learn.  I'm sure this isn't giving you anything helpful, but not sure what you want to know. 


I usually do it the hard way too, but I learn the easy
way in the process usually.    We have to remember that computers are only machines - LOL. 
Bayscribe is very easy to learn.
The training lasted about 1-1/2 hours, but most of that was installing it.  The trainer went over a few functions and the rest is in the manual, which is very easy.  I went from DocQScribe to Bayscribe without any problem.  Bayscribe doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but it works well.  Everything is on 1 screen (all the demographics).  I have no problem making my counts on it.
I found it very easy to learn and like V8 even more. sm
I felt comfortable within a half an hour. The demographics are even easier on the version 8 (newest upgrade) and most of them are filled in for you with very little need to make changes.  Once you learn the shortcuts the editing becomes second nature.  My suggestion is to practice them one or two at a time until your fingers do them automatically and then move on to adding to your shortcuts and eventually you'll be using them all as second nature as normal typing.  I do about 90% editing and 10% typing and I'm happy with that mixture, sometimes more, sometimes less. I make more than double my lines with editing so the decreased pay per line equals more than I do with straight typing.  Of course there are days that are the exception and I get a lot more edits than usual and it brings my counts down but on a majority of days I will do about 550-600 lines editing and typing about 220 lines per hour, on a comfortable working hour.
Love Ex-Text - easy to learn
This is Dictaphone's ExText and very easy to learn. Have
Don't know, but similar to typical and very easy to learn. NM
Medrite is very easy to learn, transcription friendly...nm
Just started it last month. It is nice and easy to learn
as long as you have experience with ExText or ExSpeech....All the things I thought were flukey with ExSpeech have now been corrected in EX Editor. You will enjoy it.
Platform very easy and quick - easy to get used to. :)
It took me, no lie 10 minutes, to learn the platform. sm
When the trainer called, I already loaded the expander, logged into the system, and was ready to go - no training needed. It took me all of 10 minutes to learn the platform; however, the account specifics is what takes a while. Like every company and account, there are certain specifics for each account.

I am liking it very much; however, I am not ready to quit my other job. I prefer working for two, so I have something to fall back on.
WordPerfect vs. Word - similar? Is WordPerfect easy to learn? OK with both on one PC? Thanks. nm
Easy platform...sm
Basically, I have several accounts that I work on, but for the most part all that you have to enter in is the patient's name, DOB, DOS...the rest is usually filled in for you, click Enter or something like that, one button, and then it sends you to the report...when you are finished with that, you just click one button, check mark for QA or not, and send it through..SIMPLE and GREAT platform...not difficult at all...
The platform is NOT easy to use, sm
They do bother you and I just was not treated the way I expected to be.  I am happy you are happy with them but it did not work that way for me!!!!
Very easy platform, but I won't say it can't be tweaked a certain way. Don't think anything
Tell us more about why you like it. Benefits? PTO? Easy Platform?
I'm with them. Good work environment, easy accounts and I'm making really good money. nm

Anyone know of a company that uses a very easy platform with templates...
and lots of fill in the blanks? I am trying to find part-time work that doesn't require a whole lot of typing because I have pregnancy-induced carpal tunnel syndrome. I still have several months of pregnancy left and I still need to work, so my only option is to find work that requires a lot less typing! I am just happy that this CTS is usually only temporary! I do wear wrist splints and take frequent breaks during my shift but this provides little relief. If you know of companies that use easy platforms with templates, fill in the blanks, cut and paste, etc - please let me know! Thanks in Advance!
What kind of platform does Diskriter use? Is it easy
Platform is easy to use, and the people are great to work with. sm
I only work there part-time, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.  Good luck on whatever you decide. 
The platform is super easy and user friendly. I have never had sm
any problems getting my lines...plus!
if easy platform and few ESLs, you'll do okay with same doctors daily.
Pay always on time, platform is easy, they've always been nice to me, do have several accounts to
avoid running out of work.  I do MT and QA.
I agree. I am only part time so far, but I love it. The platform is easy, and sm

the people are great.  I feel very fortunate to have stumbled onto them.

They are good production and interesting, but hard to learn. nm
Ditto - it's never a good thing to learn transcription

They use Dictaphone EX Text platform. Very user friendly and easy to work on.
It is all strictly internet based. No extra phone lines required. They do reimburse your high speed internet up to I think $40 a month, too.
I love it here; easy platform, plenty of work, great communication
I agree that it is an easy platform, but compared to other platforms I have used, lines are harder
to get, probably counted or weighted differently.
depends; can make more $ on easy platform/7 than hard platofrm/8-9 cents
Easy platform, assigned accounts, always plenty of work. Great OM and boss. nm

Easy platform, PTO if you are employee, production incentive, direct deposit, work flow varies on
different accounts, but usually have enough to keep busy, lots of QA feedback.
Strictly IC, good company, hard accounts, good platform.
Good pay, always on time, no direct deposit though.
Is Transcend a good company with a good platform to work on. They are advertising.
SoftScript employees? Good money? Easy program? SM

I am interested in current information on Soft Script.  Is it possible to make good money ($40,000 year/full time). 

Is the programming easy? 

Sound quality good?  I was told it was good.

Thanks for all your help.  Please email me if you wish.  Thank you.

SoftScript employees? Good money? Easy program? SM
Although I realize this post is months after the original post, who in the world told you that MTs make $40,000 per year, especially at SoftScript? If you were talking to the owner (ewww!) or manager, they told you a bold-faced lie.


Just curious
Great company -- good benefits, average pay, easy-to-achieve sm

incentive tier, ExText platform, pay by direct deposit every 2 weeks, always on time.  The people in management seem to genuinely care about the employees, which is a nice plus.  I have been there since October and am very happy.  Of course, one man's paradise is another man's hell it seems at times, but it is a good fit for me.


Good luck! 

No PT bennies. Easy interview, but don't remember details. Good luck. NM
Anyone know of a company, easy clinic work, easy Word format, dependable pay? Help!
Except for the good platform, the
rest of it sounds just like Transcend.
