Can a carpenter work without tools? (sm)

Posted By: anon on 2008-02-21
In Reply to: New in-office job has NO spell check - Jennifer

Tools are tools, whether it be for carpentry, taking blood pressure readings, or transcription.  I rely on my tools to be productive and do my job efficiently.  I don't think I could work without the Internet, my e-books or spellcheck.  It would be like typing on a manual typewriter, ICK.  Good luck with your new job, but they need to step up and get with the times.

This is 2008. Why work without the correct tools. nm
My carpenter looks like Kevin Costner.
I think there is only one better, Karen Carpenter, a natural.

Try going to tools
Then options, then to the view tab. You probably have something check marked in the formatting section you don't want.
Tools and then Options looks like it may
have commands that determine this
bayscribe tools
i'm no pro, but am using bayscribe. The Expander tools i think was done separate. Try www.bayscribe.com/expander and see if the instructions there help. Also, if you are using tabs -- for the stuff to all work right, bayscribe has to be in the first tab on the left.

I am using the BayScribe platform and hate it.  I can't seem to find a tech support person to tell me if I can load all my expansions at once from Word to transcription tools and hate having to do it one at a time.  Does anyone know anything about it?  If you can tell me how to do it or how to contact someone in tech support, I'd be eternally grateful!  Thanks in advance! 
Tools > Options > View
Make sure nothing is marked under Formatting marks.
Yes - go to Tools, Options, then Edit tab
On the column on the right side, unclick "when selecting, automatically select entire word."
Mine says tools at top left - sm
Click on tools, user documents, then put date range. Click print preview button, not print button. It won't print on your printer.

If you need to have a print copy, here's what I do. I open a new document in Word. Then go back to your print preview screen with the totals, hold down ALT and click print screen, then go to Word and CTRL V.
Did you click on Tools while in Word? -
Click on Tools, Options, then Spelling and Grammar, and under dictionary, it should have "Custom". Click on Custom for the custom dictionary, apply and OK.

type a medical word incorrectly and see if it is working....

Other than that, it could be in a Stedman's folder.

It's on the tools/options menu
Untick the show startup task pane option on the view tab.
In Word, under the Tools section there
is a place for language set. Have you tried this??
Go to Tools, Internet Options,second choice down,
delete cookies and delete temporary files. Also, you can clear your history at the same place if it's still a problem.
Yes, tools and then auto correct options.
There are lots of tabs in there for different automatic options - you can undo them by removing the check marks. Just go thru all the different options you don't want and click on the box to remove the check marks. If you remove all check marks on most auto options, it allows you to basically straight type! Good luck!
figured it out, tools, options, format! NM
I use the Compare feature on the tools menu.
When I click on productivity tools on desktop
but strangely, I can pull it up while in Bayscribe. Don't know what's happening there.
Good point about their "new tools".
By the way, I'm emailing and don't have to print them.  Thanks everyone!
We are just tools, like staplers or a lamp. The company
Macros are found under the Tools option.

However, for what you describe, you would be better off using a text expander. Auto correct is limited and macros are overkill for the task.

Word does have Line Count under Tools.
not have an add on.  I use MS Word 2003 and it has a line count on the tool bar.  Are you sure you know what you mean when you say there is no line counter in Tools in MS Word?
Got into Word/Tools/Options or Customize
and try around, it's somewhere in Word!
Tools - Options - Spelling tab - settings button
Tools, Set Background Color, then make your choice.
In Word 2003, Tools, Options, Spelling tab.
It is about halfway down and on the right-hand side. Speller type is above the drop-down box.
deleting cookies-go to TOOLS, internet options

Once you get to internet options from TOOLS at the top of your browser, you have a radio button to delete cookies, one to delete history, one to delete online files and then offline files - that is how you delete the cookies AND the cache/memory/history.

Is that what you need to know?  Hope that helped!! 

Under Tools, Workspace Manager will bring up the box to change.
Great reply-- Can you list the productivity tools you use? Tx NM
Great reply-- Can you list the productivity tools you use?

Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools.
Under tools/options, you can have it upload the files once the recorder is detected. I ...

have all of my accounts set up this way.  It makes it much easier and all the doc has to do is plug in the recorder.  I use DocShuttle with Olympus DS-2300 recorders.

Hope this helps.

Tools>AutoCorrectOptions>Uncheck 'Cap 1st letter of sentences' box. (nm)
And make sure Tools/Options, you check to save every 1 or 2 mins. nm
Check the status bar setting on the view tab in tools/options. nm
You can drag options back from the tools customize dialog.
Windows 2003?Under Accessories, System Tools, Restore (nm)
It's something in Word, not ExText. Check your Format/Insert/Tools headings. nm
Overtype option is on. Turn it off in the tools options or click twice on OVR on the status line.
Phone Tools is a Bvrp software program that allows you to not only fax and receive data/documents v
your pc (including coversheet and confirmation of date/time received), but can also act as an answering machine.  It's a very good product.  The receipient/s just need to make sure that their fax machine is turned on and has a paper supply loaded (thereby saving you the expense of purchasing reams for this purpose).  If you expect to receive faxes, you also need to be sure that the program is running and set the control to fax modem, rather than answering machine.
Tools, AutoCorrect, Autoformat as you Type, uncheck Automatic numbered lists. nm

Click on tools, AutoCorrect, and click on tab that says
AutoFormat as you type and uncheck the ordinals option.
Go to tools, language, set language--nm
I get my work from an FTP site that they load the work to, however I don't have pool work so to
speak, but I tell them how many minutes a day I want.  The work is generally put in my box by 5 pm every day, then I have until 10 am the following day for some priority work, or 3:30 pm for the rest, so TAT is not too bad. I would like to work less at night though, but I working on that. My downside is I do not get the same dictators day to day, there are a few I do on a semi-regular basis though, some generate great lines but take longer to do that other doc's and are not "money-makers", I also do not get paid for spaces so that hurts a bit too.  This is WP5.1 too.....so very antiquated but that is what the hospital uses, so not much choice there. But I understand what you mean about the C-phone. I was just doing another job with C-phone recently...they incidentally did not tell me how to get off of the system, which was very simple.  I'd finish a job, then hit stop and hangup if I wanted to get off or quit working.  That is what you need to do if you want to sleep, eat, etc.  Don't feel guilty, do what you signed up for, believe me they watch the pools and will get others to do the work you don't finish.  If they get on your case remind them that you are only PT and only want 500 lines a day, etc.  It's not worth killing yourself over.  Good Luck.
You go by your schedule and have no work. Everytime I get on to work, there is always work.
Then you would have no life at all except work, work, work if you did that. I wouldn't do it. nm
Same thing with nationals. You work all the time to keep the account caught up when others dont work
and then when they decide to put a whole lot of extra people on your accounts and run you out they could care less about how much you worked.
Have a hospital I work for and they consistently change work types and do line counts. (sm)
Management just doesn't understand in order to crank out the work you need to be proficient by typing the same accounts. Go figure, they just don't get it ??
Usually work "live" on a Cphone, while connected. There are ways to record & work off line, bu
steady work...gearing up to start new account....but there was no work on Tues as it was a holiday
Be patient with your eyes open....
I work for Warminster at MQ and I am sick to death of being jerked around with no work all the time.
I would like a job where I can depend on the work and it does not seem to be in this office of MQ.
Speaking of offshoring MT work, who does not directly send work offshore?
Just curious.  Has anyone got a list of companies who do not send work offshore?  Precyse?  MQ?  Spheris?
