Thank you all who have answered! That's what I like...

about coming here, the diversity of answers.  You ladies (and maybe guys) have been a great help!  Thank you. 

thanks to those of you who answered
think I'll give the 5htp a try - i'm in a stressful situation and I think my depression is situational,thanks again. 
I'm sorry nobody answered you. I am sorry
for your dad, too. I have no personal experience with those exact meds; however, I am very allergic and/or intolerant to many meds, and Zantac actually does that to me - makes me an emotional mess. I am on other meds that give me GI upset, and I have to take Zantac for a few days until either my GI system calms down, or my emotions are shot. It makes me very labile. For elderly people and those with allergies or intolerances, that can be a very common side effect - also, as I'm sure you know, elderly people are hyper-sensitive to many meds and/or have bizarre reactions - not the usual warnings on label. I hope things work out - he'd probably rather have GI distress than be agitated or upset. Good luck.
I answered their ad and
So I got my own job. I have many years of experience. I went through 2 other jobs before with larger companies, then I found this one with a small company and I just love where I am at now. I did not use them at all. I don't know why they would put themselves out there and then not bother to reply.
Many thanks to all who answered!
Answered below and yes
you just answered your own sm
question! you have only been doing this for a few months! Are you doing acute care or doctors office stuff that you already had been doing. There is no way with only a few months experience you can go home and work on acute care for a MT company and expect to make any money.

Same thing I have been talking about in this field forever. Too many folks want to get very little experience and then leave and "work at home" not realizing they have to have some experience.

You need to go and get some in-house experience.
thanks to all who answered
you are the best...and no sarcasm!
Curious -- Who are you asking? Someone else answered..? lol nm
Thanks to all who answered! I will try your suggestions. nm
see question answered above -nm
Okay, you answered my question. nm
NEVERMIND. No one answered anyway.
Answered you down at your other post

See down under your other post.  E-mail me and I will try and help but I don't thinkyou will need some equipment, etc. to start.  Gotta go do deliveries. 

You answered your own question...
Enjoy it. You will regret it if you don't!
thank you. someone answered this on the mq board
thx though
and she answered you. why the 'tude? nm
We answered this the other day - The average is 3:1
1 hour of dictation will take 3 hours to "type" transcribe.
Dont know if JAM answered but....

I copied this from his/her email. 

Position the curser where you want to start, (beginning of sentence)
press F8, hit the period key. It will then highlight to the period and
you can delete.  This will work with commas also.  If you get stuck in
the mode or change your mind, just hit esc.  Just remember to hit F8,
then hit whatever key you want to highlight to, then delete.

Again some companies do differ in amounts by the last month paid as you can invoice out for December in January and they sometimes accure that amount so they can deduct it in that year.  I have still claimed it in the year that I received it and did this for many years and never had a problem.  So as long as there is not a huge 10 to 15K difference I think that the IRS knows this.  Again 1099's can be corrected and sent in if there is a discrepancy in the amount.  Feel safe as long as you have the records to indicate what you received in the year. 
I have answered your question above. (nm)
Your question was answered and not at all with
any sarcasm from what I read.

It seems that the poster just answered in as few words as possible.

I understood he/she to mean without experience, the company would hire from within.

Very simple.

How did you get that they were assuming you had no experience? seems that you are the one assuming eh?!

Thanks to you all who answered. One more question.......
How do you know which C-phone will be compatible with everything?
They answered. Said he was from Pakistan and that all MTs
You answered your own question!
They can't spell!
LOL! Thank you and everyone who answered without complaing (nm)
My question is not answered though
Are these records done by MTs or is this the punch a screen and put on the information.
I also want to thank DeeAnn who answered
my question so kindly and the person who posted with BINGO-LOL is confused and needs help.

Stop trying to be Sherlock Holmes, it is pathetic!
sa, thank you so much, this answered all my questions...nm
You answered somebody's inquiry

a few weeks ago about my company and it sounded as though you were a current employee. 

Hey, it's okay to vent.  I know it must be frustrating. 

I'm glad I have not had to buy a BOS 3.  That would make me mad.  They are waaaay too expensive. 

This is answered on the Word board. SM
Just go to that board and scroll down, or do a Find (in the Edit menu if you have IE).
No one was being rude. They just answered her question.
She IS a newbie and thought she was being trained wrong when, in fact, she is probably being trained right. She doesn't know the rules of transcription.
Well, that pretty much answered my question!

You keep using your high school diploma and playing "I win" games back and forth on the computer. I have a feeling that's all you have anyway, which, my dear, is not much.

I guess we can assume you only answered it to be able to put down the original poster? I hope you get the same one day, I really do. Wish I could see it happen. You are hateful.
Is there a reason you answered for Sheri

I think *that* shows a lack of respect for someone. I also said Sheri ONLY was to answer the question (because she is the administrator of the board).

And in terms of "when in Rome do like the Romans do ..." Just call Rosa Parks.

I'd like one, too! I answered your post on the other board.
I'm sure they'll need an experienced technician to work at home, though. Just like any other job, they don't hire newbies without experience to work at home right away. It's better to learn in-house from experienced people than to try to go it alone. You can't troubleshoot over the phone and fix someone's computer if you've never actually done it in real life. College merely lays the foundation, it doesn't make you an expert in the field.

I've been trying to find an at-home tech job for over 10 years now. It's not easy. Too much competition out there with all the youngsters and Y2K layoffs. Totally saturated market with much lower wages than 10 years ago. People generally don't quit at-home tech jobs because they're hard to come by.
wow...okey dokey..answered my ????
wouldnt of been DTSS in springfield MO was it?
Monitor/Admin answered that below
I agree because this question has been answered 100
times over on the New MT/Student Board.
We just answered this question a few days ago. nm
answered you on drug board

Cancel please. Question answered.
This post is a duplicate, and it was answered (nm)
Thanks so much. Your posts answered my question. nm
Dum Dum answered her email last week--sm
and received her email asking for a resume. I never answered because I have a job and do not trust this one's methods. sorry.
I answered Erin too with the C answer
By the way, mm, did your original question ever get answered?
The original question actually wasn't about Ebonics or syntax. Your original question was about markers and blanks.

Marker: A coding mechanism used to signify a spot in the dictation where the Transcriptionist cannot understand what is being said or there is a discrepancy. In some software platforms (DQS for example), a marker will allow the transcriptionist or QA person to jump directly to the spot in the audio recording and listen to the problem, without having to manually fast forward the audio.

Blank: Usually signified by underscores, either 5 or 10 or whatever is specified by the client. _______ This shows a space where the dictator can hand write in what he meant to say on the paper chart copy of the report before signing it.

Hope this helps! And best wishes in your anger management class, and also in your "playing well with others" class... LOL! (And yes, that was a joke!)
She asked, I answered and my answer
not what OTHERS wanted so they answered, not her. If you donít want a variety of answers, should never throw out on this board.
Hi Eva! Answered here because I don't know which category to go under on the religion board.
The book of Daniel will have a lot of clues about this, but in a nutshell, the wild beast of Revelation is a composite or sum total of the beasts pictured in the book of Daniel. The beasts in the book of Daniel represented the ruling powers, or governments, of the day. The beast of Revelation represents the same today and gets its power from the great dragon, which is Satan (Rev. 13:2, 12:9), so it isn't surprising that the bible calls satan the ruler of the world (John 12:31, 16:11) and the god of this world (2Cor. 4:4). However, at Daniel 2:44 we're told through prophecy that eventually God will bring an end to all human rulership and will begin exercising his rulership over the human family as the one true universal soverign. He will do this through his son, Jesus Christ (Dan. 7:13,14). The Kingdom mentioned in Daniel 7:14 is the same one Jesus taught us to pray for in the model prayer or Lord's prayer. God's will is being done in heaven because he rules there. So, praying for his his kingdom to come and his will to be done on the earth as it is done in heaven is the same as asking him to take over the rulership of the earth, which he will do. However, that will mean an end to all human rulership here on the earth (Rev. 16:14), which is why the beast of Revelation will be destroyed along with the one that gives the beast its power. That destruction will take place in the "battle of the great day of God Almighty," which is referred at Rev. 16:16 as Armageddon. That is the battle over sovereignty, and that is why it is with the governments (or kings) of the earth. All those supporting those kings or governments will have its figurative mark on their hands and/or foreheads showing that they support the beast with their mental energies (mark on their foreheads) and with their actions (mark on their hands). Those supporting the beast and putting their faith in it will be destroyed along with it (Rev. 19:20,21).

In a nutshell.
Some people answered your question rather rudely below, SM
I think you came here for suggestions. I am in a similar situation. I have cleaned offices, done the pawn shop thing, sold things I already had to try and keep up with my bills. This isnt much help, but I can't believe how rude some people are on this board.
This was answered on the Company board down a few posts. nm
