Yep. Not user friendly at all. It
requires a lot of going from keyboard to mouse and back and forth. My backup account is Mongoose and I liked it much better.
user friendly software
Is there really a user-friendly software?  Is there one that you don't have to type in demographics anymore or at least get paid for it if you do?  Is there one that is actually fast and doesn't require a lot of changing from screen to screen?  What would it be?  I am not a computer savvy person, but it seems like all this technology is taking us backwards.  Also, I don't suppose you would like to tell us which company you work for.
Yes! There really is user-friendly software out there. /sm
You have to do your research, and ask questions in regards to companies with user-friendly software. Both companies I work for use proprietary software that is Word-based. It is all internet- The IC position software- I never change screens, the jobs download in seconds, press one key and demographics fill in (for which I am paid, including headers/footers)- tab down and there's the page you start typing, One click to physician roster- everything right at your fingertips, i.e. account specifics, BOS guidelines, etc. Full-time position - only two screens (demographic) then transcription screen. Everything at fingertips, doctor roster, etc.
I find it very user friendly. nm
Is it relatively user friendly and fast? nm
that is untrue. once you get used to it, it's very user friendly
and you can move around in it just fine, look up old reports on the same patient or any other for that matter --
Bayscribe is not as user friendly as they say
DocQscribe much better. I agree that Bayscribe takes to much mousing, too many slots. Have to reselect report type after each report even if same worktype. Bayscribe needs some upgrading as far as functionality. Yes, it is doable but other platforms much more productive.
Platform is user friendly. P ay is good. sm
The accounts are good for experienced MTs.

I can't say I produce more on this particular platform, but it is MT friendly. I average approximately 300 lines an hour. That is not my best, as I have done 400 lines an hour on a different platform. It all depends on the dictators.

Good luck to you. If you need flexibility, a decent line rate and don't mind being SE without benefits - go for it.

I prefer SE or IC status, so it suits me just fine.
I love MedRemote! Very user friendly.
Never used CM.
Anyone use Cquenc software? User friendly or not? Thx. nm
A lot of programs with their program. Not user friendly.
Platform is extremely user friendly! They are one of the better
companies out there. I would suggest working for them and deciding for yourself.
ChartScript is very user friendly. The only fields in the
demographics section that I need is the dictating physician's identification number.  It's a good program,with flaws like any other, but again, user friendly including very extensive, excellently written tutorial. 
I totally agree. NOT user friendly.
Is TransTech platform user friendly?

Is it difficult to get lines there?



First they use the Futurenet platform which is VERY user friendly.

however, there is a discrepancy in line counts.  They tend to try to use the line count that the FNET program gives.  I wrote down character count with spaces for each document and found that at the end of the day the FNET program shorted me anywhere from 50 to 75 lines per day.  The good news is you submit a line count sheet at the end of the pay period and they pay you off your sheet.  So if you keep track like I did, you won't get shorted.

My only beef with JLG was that I was hired in to do SR paid hourly and within weeks of being hired they breached their offer letter and contract and forced us all (all SR people) to go onto production, which would be fine except that the ASR program had just started and we were still teaching the engine, so you couldn't make any money on production because you were pratically transcribing the entire report. Then there was the game playing.  When we were hourly and management felt we weren't productive enough, they withheld work.  They wouldn't put any jobs in our queue for days at a time.  That didn't sit well with me.  I'm the kind of person that if you don't like something I'm doing, call me up and tell me.  Don't play passive-aggressive BS games!

I think they treat their MTs pretty well.  I just would be mindful of how some of the higher ups operate.  I think if you go in with your eyes open, you could make decent money on their platform transcribing.

Good Luck!

Has anybody ever worked in WinScribe? Is is user friendly and productive? nm
The platform is super easy and user friendly. I have never had sm
any problems getting my lines...plus!
Does JLG have nice accounts to work on and is their platform user friendly.
Has anyone ever worked for co who uses IntraScript? Is it user friendly, productive? Any comments
Escription is user friendly and 4 cpl is about average for that platform. You could easily do 400
lines an hour. Some people do even 500-600. Good luck with your decision. From what I know, it really is the best VR platform out there and I make more on that than  ever could straight typing.
Very easy, user friendly, a little slow and awkward compared to DQS though. (sm)
One of the best features is that you are able to search for your own samples on a particular dictator or patient. You do however have to be aware these are typed by other people and could potentially have errors.
I love the WMX platform. Extremely user friendly and fast. SM
I definitely do not have to enter a bunch of demographics, which is really a plus for me. I love it here, going on one year now!
I currently work at JLG and love it. Great, user friendly platform.
They leave you alone to type.  Pay on time, never late.  Pretty well organized and good communication.  And they do not offshore!  I be sticking around.   Cubicles 

Is Dolbey STAT Transcription Platform user friendly?

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.
Can anyone give feedback on BeyondTXT such as user friendly, productive, etc? Any comments welcome.
I love it! Nothing like the old blue screen Meditech. User friendly and easy to use! sm
I also get paid gross line, which helps, but very easy to use!
Any information on program called Beyond Text by Transcend? Fast, slow, user friendly?
Can you make decent lines with it?  Is tech support good? 
Great place - ExText is easy to learn and user friendly. Good pay. Nice, COMPETENT people.
small to medium company that works in Word or Word-based program - email me. nm
anyone work for Oracle - do they use Word or a Word-based program - e-mail me nm
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. 
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!
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.
