Great pay, awesome platform, and wonderful account.

Like everything else in life, you take the good with the bad. Get bored sometimes, but I make a great line rate and work for a great hospital. I will take the boredom - really can't complain.

From what I have heard, you either love VR or hate it. Personally, I love it, but I think it really does depend on the VR platform. eScription is the best VR platform out there in my humble opinion. I have worked on several and some were just downright terrible.

EditScript/Escription - Fell in love with it the first time I used it
Editscript-Escription - Jay, sm

Jay, do I still use a foot pedal with this software? What is the difference between editscript and escription? Sorry for the questions, but I have never used this platform before...Thanks!


eScription is the name of the company. They make a dictation system which takes the doctors' dictation files and runs them through a voice recognition engine once they reach a certain level of accuracy. At any given time, there will be some dictations that have to be transcribed from scratch and others that need to be edited.

EditScript is the name of the TRANSCRIPTION component of the eScription system, the part that you as an MT would use. It does use a foot pedal, yes. It integrates with your MS Word program so you can still use your AutoCorrects, macros and expanders.

EditScript & eScription
eScription is the company with EditScript. They do not take over departments. The hospital will contract with them to use their software and servers, etc. EditScript is voice recognition software. They do not take over departments.

However, there are some transcription companies who are certified ES users and will try to bid for the department or hospital's work.

Please know that not every hospital or department who uses the EditScript platform outsources their transcription work to companies or anyone else for that matter. Recently, many have been keeping their transcription in-house and training their MTs on the new software.

I hope this answers your questions.

EMR is an electronic medical record. Most companies are trying to sell their software to the healthcare industry as EMR. Paperless records so you could be visitng in Alaska, have an accidnet, and the doc could pull your chart up from the hospital in your home town, like New Jersey, etc. instantly.

Hope this information helps.
My favorite platform.
eScription EditScript
Does anyone know what the standarized definition of a line is when using the eScription platform (EditScript)? I understand bolding and underlining are not permitted, so that has been eliminated from the line count. How about two spaces after a sentence? Has that been eliminated from the line count also? How difficult is it to confirm your line count that the software is gathering for you? If you partially edit and partially transcribe a report, does it separate the two functions and provide individual counts? Thanks!
Another eScription EditScript
If you had to transcribe a report on the eScription platform instead of edit, would you be able to use the AutoCorrect feature in your Word program, or another Expander program, or are you using the Word on the eScription server and would an expander program be available?

Anybody ever having trouble downloading EditScript on initial setup?   I get so far and the templates will load but the next part that lists the providers won't and I get kicked off my provider (VZ wireless air card).  I have been told that they do use this for the laptops, so that shouldn't be an issue.  Just didn't know if anyone had any possible suggestions.  TIA!

Editscript/Escription ???
I have used Escription when I worked for TransTech.  Now I have been offered a position with a company that uses Dictaphone VR.  I thought Escription was a Dictaphone product.  Does Dictaphone have more than 1 platform for VR?
Editscript/Escription users
Am I the only person who has a squatty hourly average line count with this system? I would love to hear from those who don't mind sharing how many lines you average an hour.

For those of you who are thinking about posting a response that says 'I don't give out this info'...save it please.
My question is for people who ARE willing to share this info.

Editscript/Escription users
I'm worse off than you. What does Editscript/Escription stand for?
What is eScription Editscript? Is that strictly

has an ad for MTs that says nothing about editing positions.  I am confused for sure.  I transcribe.  Don't want to do editing for a company.  Don't want to apply for a job when I do not know what I applying for.  TIA!

Can Smarttype be used with Editscript/eScription?

Is EditScript and Escription the same platform? sm
I am only familiar with Dictaphone EXText, EXSpeech, and now EXEditor, but have heard that escription is even better than these platforms. I want to get my fact straight (the difference, if any, between EditScript and Escription) before applying for companies using those platforms. TIA!
Are all Escription accounts EditScript? I could not use this platform. sm
I see so many people that use Escription and like it.  Are there other Escription platforms, or are they all EditScript?
eScription only makes EditScript/EMON
Why couldn't you use EditScript?
eScription is actually the company that makes EditScript.
:-) Welcome to the boards too.
eScription - EditScript - question missed from below.
If you insert a list of recipients into the report from the hospital directory base, does the MT receive any credit for this in the line count?

Also, are any of the demographics included in the MT's line count?

Thanks for your reply.
EditScript absolutely tracks your reports and your line counts
You edited lines are calculated, your standard transcription lines are calculated, and all of your reports are logged.

If you click on the metrics tab on the toolbar, that gives your line count - you need to insert the date range, and voila! Your counts come up.

Maybe your employer unabled your toolbar?
Also LOVE LOVE ESCRIPTION and make good money but...
Can I ask how you sit there for 8 hours. Lately, I'm having a motivation problem. When I focus, I can rack up the lines, but lately, I get so easily distracted. My mind wanders and I struggle to get my lines. Any tips on how you stay productive who do you work for?? I work for Transcend.
LOVE eScription
I love it and don't ever want to use anything else. 
I love eScription.
It is very user friendly. Good luck!
I also work on eScription and LOVE it.
I work on eScription and love it.
With the part-time position I have using eScription, straight transcription I average about $27-$28 an hour and with VR I can average up to about $34-$35 an hour. It did take me a little time and concerted effort to get there, though. I had to learn to keep up with the dictation and I have to really pay close attention but even with difficult dictators, I still do as well or better with VR than straight transcription.

I get 10 cpl for transcription and 5 cpl for VR.

Absolutely, I absolutely love my job and

Absolutely, I love my job! nm
I absolutely love
I absolutely love them, I fly through them
and miss them when all I get are Discharge Summaries all day long. Once you get your docs down, they are a piece of cake.
I absolutely love when
Someone walks in or another phone rings and they put me on hold and I have to listen to elevator music for 5 minutes.
I absolutely LOVE Directv!!!
The picture is clearer than cable. The only time the picture may go out is if there is a severe thunderstorm and even then mine will usually work. I will never switch back to regular cable. We have the HDTV TIVO box and we absolutely love it. If you can get that, do. TIVO is awesome!!!
I absolutely love pediatrics....but then
I absolutely LOVE Quicken....
Just started using it this year, and don't know why I never used it before. Now I won't live without it. javascript:editor_insertHTML('text','');

I absolutely love it and have for 25+ years.
I honestly believe this is a job you either love or hate.
I absolutely love ER/ED reports.
When I worked at a hospital, we had a rotating schedule on who did those and x-rays. Like poster below, if you don't want them I will take them.
HAHAHA, Absolutely love that! nm
absolutely gorgeous and charming. love him.
so glad he got out of that ashley/jessica/joe family mess. nick was too smart and classy for that obscenely creepy family. Loved seeing Nick cheer on Drew in the audience. Sweet brothers. Love them both but Nick is way cuter.

I absolutely love mine...see message
I have health issues and this bed has been wonderful for me. My husband up until we got our sleep number bed was always up by 4-5 in the morning because of pain. He hasn't had any pain since. It was well worth the money for us.
Anybody have a digital camera they are absolutely in love with?
I'm looking to purchase one this weekend, preferably under $300, and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.  The one I have now is cheap and you can't even see what you're aiming at, so I think a disposable camera is an improvement, but was hoping to get some "expert" advice!!  Thanks!
Been editing VR for about 5 years now and absolutely love it!
I also have CTS - it has done wonders not having to transcribe my fingers to the bone.

Yes, you can make awesome money editing VR; however, it depends on the platform and line rate. Personally, I have been workin on eScription's EditScript for the past 5 years and absolutely love it and can't say enough about it.

You can tend to get a little bored from time to time, just like with anything else. When that happens, I take frequent breaks to rejuvenate.

Good luck. I hope it works out for you.
Yes and absolutely worth it. I love to work
outside when weather permits.  I don't do it every day because hooking up and unhooking and having to carry everything gets to be a pain, but I do it on occasion.  I also like to travel, which is why I got a laptop to start with.   It allows me to work in the car or a couple of hours a day wherever we go so there is still some income, but I also have time to enjoy time with family.  
I have to agree. Absolutely prosper with it and love it! sm
I, like you, produce 2500 to 3000 lines per day and CAN pay my bills on it; however, I do make way above the average cpl on EditScript.

absolutely love discharge summaries nm
I've got a DX6490, 4 megapixel and absolutely love it. sm
It is so easy to use. Daughter is in the High School band, so we've taken a ton of pictures of the band kids over the past 2 years, always get compliments. So good that the band teacher just bought a Kodak for himself. Very easy to e-mail, print pictures. I have great action shots with mine. Just one tip, if you're planning on using the night-time feature, be sure to get a tripod. You really need to be steady for that. You will be very happy.
I love chihuahuas - they're absolutely adorable!
There is also a 30 day free trial and I absolutely love this expander!
Absolutely would. Love my job/career! Make great money. nm
I absolutely love Pogo, although not much time to play these days...nm
I absolutely love GearPlayer 4, the newest version. It plays all files
and combine that with a good stereo headset, you'll be all set to go.  I am able to hear so well all sorts of dictators.  I cannot, and will not, work with Express Scribe, and I have found no other player as superior as GearPlayer.  They have a free download you can trial it for 5 days and see if works in your platform/voice files, found at transcriptiongear.com 
EditScript help

I am about to start working for a company that uses EditScript.  I need to know if a USB foot pedal will work with it.  When I looked at the foot pedal they said I have to have, I have the same exact one except it is USB.  Does anybody know if this will work?  I really don't have the money to spend on a new foot pedal, and I use a laptop for work that doesn't even have a 9-pin serial port.

Thank you in advance!



Is anyone using this program.  I just started it and it seems to be good - the first voice recognition that I have used to date - just wondered what others thought since this seems to be the way of the future in MT.
