LOL! You calls 'em as you sees 'em, girl!
Love 'em or leave 'em
I don't have a real solution, but I have been known to log off of that account whenever I see this happen.  I then try to find work on one of the other accounts to which I am assigned, but there is often no other work available.  I conclude that the only choice is love 'em or leave 'em.  A private client might be nice, but that brings other headaches.
If U can't beat 'em join 'em
This is NOT the only industry that outsources and you are fooling yourselves if you think that it will stop.
Well, good luck!
Don't shoot her down
As with any business idea, some work out and some don't. She may do very well. In fact, she may run across a local clinic/provider who is dissatified with the quality of the current work he or she is gettng and will want to give her a chance.

I wonder how many people told Bill Gates to forget it when he was working on computer stuff in his garage?
well, tell me cuz I wont shoot you down
I believe everyone that says they make that much.  I can type over 2000 lines a day but find that it is hard to do that everyday for myself.  how many lines do you type daily and then how many hours do you work.  my pay tier is this 7 cpl to 3000 lines, 9 cpl to 6000 lines and then after 6000, 10 cpl. 
I usually do 1250+, I shoot for 250 lph
Shoot yeah! If they need someone else, let me know!
Shoot I forgot
You can order it here cheapest for a 1 year license. At the end of the year, you can renew through Kaspersky or buy another from these guys. Shipping is fast.
Shoot, my animals are all cute.

My dog will jump on her hind legs and "box" with you by smacking your hands with her front paws.

My cat likes to go berserk inside cardboard boxes.  He also perches on my desk and dips his paws in my betta bowl.  Then he climbs all the way up the screen door and yowls if I'm outside.  Typical cat behavior, I guess, but this is my first kitty so it's funny.  He's a loverboy, too.  He crawls up on me, sticks his head under my hair, chews my hair, bites my neck, purrs and goes to sleep.

RE: Drop shoot software

Can anyone explain what Drop shoot software is and where to get it? Thanks

I consider job searching in the MT field a crap shoot
You can never tell which would be better than another until you try it. Too many bait and switchers out there.
Hey Lynn, Shoot me an e-mail. I'd love to know
what Webmedx offered you!!! If you wouldn't mind sharing.
Shoot - just apply at different companies stating your background
& your desire to learn OPs or orthopedics. My only experience was in radiology (10 yrs) & ENT (4 yrs)when I applied at a company to work at home(many,many years ago). I was hired - with no experience other than the above. They started me on DS, then HP & Consults - then "asked" me to try OPs. From then on, after more time spent looking things up than transcribing,with many tears shed, they kept me on OPs solely.

I'm now with another company after 12 yrs,& OPs are my speciality & all that I do.

Just keep applying to any & all companies that meet your criteria with your wishes known. Hopefully, you'll find a company that will let you expand your expertise beyond radiology & give you the opportunity to try such.

I wish you the best. Don't give up. If I could find such a company - so can you. Just keep on trying !!!
Well, shoot. quit! A recession's a great time to SM
go back to school anyway, like Amanda. I've forgotten some of the exact quotes I've read, but various economists have predicted that, because of the ongoing technology revolutions, people these days should plan on having to retrain for new jobs approximately 5 times during their lives. And they weren't talking about a little brush-up now and then either, but throwing in the towel and moving on. So how about having some fun figuring out what you should have done if you could go back and do it all over again, and then going for some version of it?

Since your family won't miss your income, if needed, you could spend your very last months in this field piling up tuition money to move on to something better.
What a perfect analogy! Shoot, I switched offices in my own home and it took a good 2 wks
This will vary depending on dictator style and speed, but the average to shoot for initially shoud b
around 3 times the length of the dictation. So, if the dictation is 5 minutes long, you should be able to complete the transcription in roughly 15 minutes. Again, that can vary, but it's a good rule of thumb to go by.
Isn't that what causes 'em to sag?
don't let 'em get to you, KB
As we teach our children, ignore it.
you tell 'em

Can you hear me clapping at this end and yelling BRAVO!!!  Right on!!!

Has anyone ever died from doing hanging indents?  I may be the first.  LET ME DO WHAT I NEED TO DO MICROSOFT!!!!!  (yes, I'm yelling). 

Cut 'em off???
stump 'em
I'll never forget my first day of college when the instructor wrote on the chalkboard -- panhysterosalpingooophorectomy and said "You will know what this means by the end of the day!"  This is an easy one for us now, but back then it was like "Yeah, right."  This is one of my husband's favorite words to throw at people at parties, etc. -- and he even knows the correct meaning of the term!!  I hate when people say stuff like "Where can I find a job like yours, typing at home, I could do that no problem."  They think that if they can type, they can do our jobs.  I'd like to see 'em try.....heeheehee
found 'em (sm)
did a search for clairsol, found Cheviot technology, and here they are in New Delhi. Search in these two pages for clairsol, and/or Cheviot, you will find www.clairsol.com, with an Indian name for owner.




Cheviot Technology (Software Div of Cheviot Intl Ltd)

Specialisation: Client Server, Telecom/ Networking, Internet, E - Commerce, Migration and Conversion

Website / Email: www.clairsol.com

City: New Delhi

And.....Found Clairvoyant Solutions, in Mumbai, which looks like the same company to me...


Sure looks to me like they are in India, in some shape or form....I hope this helps you....good luck, and let us know how it goes.
Tell 'em sister....

Do you see how fast the haters come here to say "big deal."  Any one of us can have our own accounts (I have 2 of my own).  I make the same as you round about $50.00 an hour.  What a relief because I also IC for an online company making 8 cpl (round about $20.00 an hour).  We can't sit around and complain; that accomplishes nothing.

BTW, I think 5 cpl for VR is good...  In case anyone cares what I think!  I just think it would be hard for me to learn the hot keys to make it go faster, but then again maybe I'd be quicker at it (20+ years in the biz). 

Just let them drink their Hatorade and be haters all their lives!!!! 

VR funnies - 3 of 'em

Cardiolite stress test which was negative for reversible skin.

HIDA scan negative for cystic duct or common bile duct obstruction with normal feeding of the gallbladder.

Ultrasound of the abdomen demonstrated a fatty liver but no evidence of a dietitian.

It's worth it...Git 'em!
I had one customer who tried to stiff me for some work I performed. I had all the paperwork in order, all the ducks lined up, etc. It was a amount somewhere near $1400.

I didn't go the SCC route at all. I filed a lien against the woman's home for the amount owed, the filing costs, and >>monthly late charges<< that had accrued up to the point of the filing of the lien. Then I waited for about 17 months or so.

When she found out that she couldn't sell her property until the lien was settled, SHE got in contact with me. She "offered" me her personal check (nyet) to settle the debt, but with her track record, I refused and would only take cash at that point in time.

She hemmed and hawed and tried to con me again, but I didn't budge, and the lien stayed put. She finally ponied up the cash, because she had to sell the house, and it couldn't be sold until the lien was satisfied.

I did lose in that deal, however. I forgot about the lien removal filing fee, so I was out $35, but I recovered the majority of the money owed.

You may just want to check out your state's lien laws.

You tell 'em girl!

stay off the porch!  Life is what you make it!  Only you can make it happen, not the President, not the Pope, and certainly not working for a national.  Some say they make boatloads off of a national, but they are hard workers that love to stay chained to the desk with no kids, (as I've seen posted) and no LIFE!  Get a grip people!  If this gal is thriving, let her thrive.  Why call her out for that?  Why?  She should be able to voice her opinion, and no I am not the poster above, I am a different poster before anyone even starts with that! 

Good golly for you Miss Molly - you hit paydirt!      Some of us love this profession enough to make it work, and yes ma'am I've gotten my fair share and then some!  I am living the good life!   

Give 'em the Beatles!
ALL little kids love 'em (seriously!). Give John, Paul, George & Ringo a try!
I love 'em too. I can dream, can't I?

If you hate 'em, verbatim!
Oh yeah!!!!!! Keep 'em comin'!!!!!! nm
Gosh, I wish I loved OP, just can't do 'em
or just go in and be so obnoxious about "hang 'em all" that
no one WANTS you on their jury!  But don't get smart on the jury form. A guy in Florida got contempt in court and spent the night in jail along with a fine for writing on his jury form that he had been a mail bomber, etc.

Yeah, right. You go change 'em. LOL

I so agree - ESLs once ya get 'em ya really

I happen to be very_good w/accents, also living in a very diverse area (and let's not forget, being an MT am we are also supposed to be excellent listeners)

what I think the OP doesn't get is ALL LANGUAGE commences in the heart - we are all the same - just *hearing* different words for much of what we all talk about on a daily level.....they say the similar things about similar issues ongoing in the world, and, instead of getting ALL freaked out when one *hears* an accent, my suggestion (unsolicited as it is) would be to try to become a better listener.

To the OP, about your hypothetical blurb telling them to *go back to their countries*...guess what?  Your relatives came from elsewhere, unless you're native American....and somehow I doubt that you are;

Would you have liked your ancestors to be told similar, holding that same exact thought as you, about they should all go back to their own countries?  hmmmmm?

Time to open the brains nice and wide to things that are different but ongoing all over the world 24/7/365....better late than never...I have some great ESL dictators and some not so great, but first and foremost have AMERICAN ANGLO mushmouths who just care less for the most part.....

Have a nice evening....

You gotta love 'em
I had a CNP who prounced epistaxis without the "s" - epeetaxis.  I won't even tell you what she did with some drug names.  The really fun one was when she stumbled three times over cerumen, never did pronounce it correctly and then spelled it for me.
Osmosis. Sleep with 'em under my head...
and absorb the knowledge. :)

Besides, this is way too fun.

Did you get the download? Now press "play".
They're great - give 'em a try!
Nicest company I've worked for in years - respectful, patient, plenty of work and they appreciate their employees. They're a breath of fresh air.
Newbies, you gotta love 'em
That bubble will soon burst! I don't make 16 cents per line, and I have 10 years of experience in all specialties, acute care, ER, clinic...Ah, to remember the newbie days...I had that "go get'em" attitude. I miss those carefree days.
Been doing 'em for months now in the NYPost. Cool! nm
scheduled days, I work 'em.....nm

2005 MINI Cooper S - two of 'em.

That shoe fits a lot of 'em. MQ, MDI/Transcend, the old Edix.
