Do you have access to DSL or cable?

What you're thinking of doing may be more stressful to you than you think. The price for the high-speed Internet would certainly be worth it.

I have cable phone access and my C-phone works - sm
I am not sure about you problem, because it sounds just like I have mine hooked up.  The only thing I can think of is that mine has 2 line hookups in the back of the phone.  If you have this too, I would just try the other one, which you probably have already done.  Sorry that was not much help.  I wish you luck
My telephone service is VOIP, but it s through my cable service, along with my cable internet. .
We have had VOIP for about a year now and I love it. I really can't tell a difference in traditional service, except the price. One of the best calls of my life was to Bellsouth to cancel our service!
Comcast cable has ULD that goes through their cable sm
and there are no limitations. I asked them. They said that you could use the phone 24/7 and it would make no difference. The cable modem has a telephone connection and backup battery in there, all in one unit. If you lose your power, the backup battery kicks in for 12 hours I think they said. I personally was reluctant but it is clearer than Verizon regular phone service. Clear as a bell! It is $39.95 a month. If you have any cable service, you might want to check and see if they have this. This is VOiP protocol but I just have never seen anything that was as clear as theirs.

If Comcast has this, it is my guess that the other cable internet services either have it or will have it in the future. This is fairly new with Comcast.
Of course you can access them

What do you mean you have no program to access them?

Why can't you just do a file search?


1.80 for me ... have to use their access. nm
Am I the only one who could not access this
Access sm
I had a terrible time and kept restoring my computer to an older date late Sat., early Sun.. I think it just showed me how valuable this site is to me. I would hate anything to happen to it. Glad to see it back!!
I can access it.
If you still have trouble after scanning for malware, you might want to try polycola.com and see if you can access Google through there.
access disconnect
They disconnect the phone line and you see on your computer that the connection was disconnected.  Then they only can get back in when you let them, by clicking on an icon and working with them at your end to get them into your computer.  Dont worry, it is done all the time.  You will see the disconnect on your screen.
It's very frustrating trying to access
This qualifies for the Stupid Business Decisions award.
What are you using to access their FTP site?
You don't use Internet Explorer to access FTP sites.  You can download CoreFTP Lite for free and use it to upload and download from FTP sites.  If you want to, you can email me and I'll try to walk you through it.  Win98 shouldn't make a difference with regard to FTP.  As far as docking pay, well, hmmm, that's mean of them.  Anyway, download the FTP program and email me, and I'll see if we can't get you up and running.
But, I can access all other web sites
So, would it really be my Internet Explorer causing the problem???

I use to go to this one web site where I could always log on even during them updating the site but many others could not - some could, some could not. I just have a feeling this may be the same type of thing - something with the website itself or else I would have problems with other websites, wouldn't I? I can access any other website I want but this particular one - wwww.weightwatchers.com

I thought maybe I needed to clean out my cache or whatever as they may have changed something where it keeps using something on my computer that is old/no longer valid in order to access the site but wouldn't everything I have done so far have eliminated a possible problem such as that??? I did not actually go in and delete anything in any cache so I don't know if that may need to be done yet and, if so, I have no idea where to go and/or which one(s) I need to do that with.

Thanks so much for trying to help. I sincerely appreciate it.
can't access right now, but try Kansasii or something like that
no message.
count access........nm
Same here..with ExText cannot access...
voice file unless asked for the voice file. Only QA has access. You can pull up the report just no voice file.
if you can access the internet, you can
work. Not a problem.
Wireless access?
So how do you have access to the internet along the way? Satellite?

/Would absolutely LOVE to do this as husband is schoolteacher off all summer, but I'm always working.
Wireless access. sm

In my past dial-up days, I used pay phones and calling cards to upload/download work. It is so much easier to connect to the Internet than it used to me because wireless access points are everywhere! (I am an IC and download voice file; I don't have to be connected to a system to receive work so if that is your situation, you may not find it as easy to work on the road.)

Depending on what wireless card you have, you can either use that software or Windows to find a wireless network to access the 'net. I've hit access points in campgrounds (that's our big pasttime), from parking lots at community colleges, hotels, libraries, Panera, McDonald's and even open home networks from the grocery store parking lot.

Your BIGGEST issue in all of this, however, is security. Make sure that you're using encryption to both send and receive; a VPN client is even better if your company has that set up.

You may want to buy an AC/DC power converter (about $35 at Wal-Mart) that plugs into your car's lighter. You then plug your computer's power cord into the unit for power.

Footpedals can be optional, depending on your software. I know that with ExpressScribe you can use the F keys to control playback, etc.

I have always had an access # assigned....
If you could get into a records system without a private passcode, that would be a major HIPAA situation! I always have a sign-in ID asigned by the facility for any C-phone account I have worked; but it is strange that you are hearing a beep and not an operator giving instructions. I've never had that situation before. If you don't have an account Lead you can contact to get help, I'm thinking you'd best tell your employer this isn't working! Good luck.
Help - I can't access my Email
It lets me sign in but the page says unavailable or something like that, the error page that comes up if you can't get on the Internet.  It happens on two different accounts - verizon and yahoo. and on both computers in my home.  I was chatting live with support for an hour and I accidentally closed the chat and I'm too tired to start over again.  Anybody know what happened?  Sorry if this is the wrong board for this.  Thanks in advance
No productivity access
Did you request a copy of the productivity log submitted by the hospital? That is all you have to do if your company did not submit one to you automatically. In addition, keep your own private long with accession numbers and times, anything you would need to support a discrepancy. There are a lot of programs out there that do not support that type of operation, so do not think you are being lied to. Just make sure they are right.
Has anyone ever let the company they work for access your..sm
computer for tech help? The place I am starting with has a program I need to download and use. I am having problems with the program and they didnt offer much help via emails. They just wanted me to "register" my computer so that they could access it and find the problem and fix it themselves. This sounds extremely dangerous to me. If they can access my computer to fix it, then what stops them from coming in to look around at personal info, such as on line banking info, or other personal info? Also, my husband has a lot of high security stuff from his job on his computer and since we are all hooked together, could they access that too? Sounds really odd to me. Has anyone else heard of this? Thanks.
Yes, I've let my company access my computer.
I used to do the same for one of my MT clients and for remote users as a computer technician.  You can sit there and watch everything they do.  It's not like they're hacking your computer or keylogging your data.  You can shut them down if you're uncomfortable with what they're doing, and delete their access capability when they've finished.
THank you! Many people have access at this monitor.
Thank you!!
There is internet access but they charge big $$$

We went on a cruise in April and I did not even think of work.  It would not have been financially beneficial.  I would have paid more in internet fees than I would have been making.  I would just go and enjoy yourself. 

Digital Access Transcription

What can anyone tell me about Digital Access Transcription as a company?  I searched the Archives and came up with nothing.  I have not gone to the "other site" yet.  Just wondering in looking for different companies and what they have to offer pros and cons.



Fair Access policy
I have DW7000 professional and even with the extra download and upload capability they will still shut me down if I go over their limit. Also I am on SatMex and have had occasional trouble as long as I have had the system. Sometimes I just want to run over the dish and modem with my Jeep!!
C-phone access code ?? sm - HELP!
I bought a C-phone from E-bay.  When dialing a number, I get a message telling me I must use the "access code."  I am sure this is something that was put in there by the previous owner(s).  Can someone tell me how to "erase" this directive or clear the machine? 
Access code is required...sm
This is what it says when I try to get to that site:

Satellite Internet Access

I am currently living in rural Iowa, and my only options for Internet access right now are dial-up (can you say S-L-O-W ?) and satellite.  I know I can get HughesNet and WildBlue.  My questions are:

1.  Are there any other providers I may have missed?

2.  Anyone have experience with HughesNet or WildBlue or any other satellite access for MT work?

I have to make a decision on this within the next week or two, so any help would be much appreciated.

Yes, tried that, no luck. Cant access GMail.
OOPS cancel that, I see you are trying to access one. nm
I do with mine plus online access nm


Voice files & access to VPN sm
I use a DVI system for the voice files and connect to a VPN to transcribe, and I am using just the mobile broadband connection. I applied to a couple of companies that said the connection would not be compatible, although I'm not sure why. My main issue is that I need to get a unidirectional antenna put up as my omnidirectional one tends to get fluctuating signals. As far as usage, I haven't really tracked work only or surfing only, but I would estimate no more than 1.5-2 GB of usage per month is strictly work-related. If anyone wants the name of the company I went through for my equipment, it is 3gstore.com. Excellent customer service, even if all you do is ask a question and not buy anything. They even answered some tech questions for me a couple of weeks ago, more than a year after I bought my stuff.
Thanks for the info...how do you delete their access after they finish? nm
Maybe ALL the tourists didn't have access to the mayor
Yeah, he's a regular Rudy Guiliani isn't he? You don't have a clue.
If they want that access, they would have to pay for the computer, the high-speed and the
portion of electric. Just my opinion. I own and run a national service and think this is ridiculous and a HUGE invasion of privacy. If worried about trust, how can they trust you with patient information. Refuse.
Onesuite has local access now for 0.025 cents


The name change was not to allow other who work in the industry access....
The name change was done to create more revenue for the organization. The association is losing money on a monthly basis and more and more American MTs are dropping their membership with quite good reason. All of the meetings I have attended regarding these changes have been connected to their association with the overseas MTs. Until AAMT becomes 100% American again, they will continue to lose. Do something for the American MTs, and they will come back. Very simple solution.
..you up to do this. ExText needs a system or an account to access before you log in
I access an acct via a VPN and I have full internet, too. nm
Satellite Internet Access - wireless?
Where are you located?  I'm in rural Iowa, about halfway between Des Moines and Omaha.  We are on a hill with no trees around, but there are higher hills around us, and we can only occasionally get cell phone signal.  No line-of-sight for the cell towers around here.  I don't really know much about wireless, though, but I'm not even sure I can get it here.  I don't even know what to look for, I guess.  Can you or someone else clue me in?
It is astonishingly easy to access a system
Sorry you are going through this. I am facing a major change that could result in loss of income in job site. The economy right now is demanding immediate cut backs from the looks of it. We are collateral damage of it and it is a darn shame. Do present a bid - contact the tech dept at the hospital and have them give you the necessary information to investigate what it would take to get you one their system - usually a VPN, internet access and a wave pedal which is basically a CD you download - and a pedal you plug in with a few things to type to get you where you need to be in the program - it is easy to master. If not this hospital you are with, then check the jobs listed in the two MT websites ***edited by Moderator*** and I just know you will find something soon. There is a lot to chose from but many are applying. Focus on your strenghts and I think we will be able to make a living out of this work for another ten years, albeit without a raise.
EEKK!! Cant access Google, get the dreaded
Hospital Disabling Internet Access for MT's
I have a question and hope someone might be able to help me. I work at home as an MT. The company I currently work for does overflow work for a hospital; however, while on the hospital's platform to transcribe their reports, your email and internet are disabled and you cannot access either one - is this legal? I feel like this is an infringement of MY rights, &c. It is my equipment, I pay the bills, yet I'm limited - and everyone knows the quickest and easiest way to find something is to look it up on the internet. I can understand the hospital is worried about patient confidentiality, &c., but for them to dictate how and when I can use my own computer is ridiculous - like telling me I can drive my car, but can't use the A/C in the middle of a hot and muggy Florida summer! This really burns me up, esp when we don't have QA and are supposed to send blanks directly to the doctors - who just love to b**ch when you're wrong while we are constantly correcting their mistakes and helping further inflate their over-sized "*I* am GOD!!!" egos!!! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!
