Trans Tech Definitely the Best Choice
I cannot say enough good about this company. I previously had a horrible horrible job, dealing with the most hostile and unfriendly backstabbing managerial staff. Oh well, paycheck not there, well it must be your banks fault. Total lack of respect, incompetence to name a few, and could care less if your 6 feet under. Glad I made the change. I was miserable. So happy to be at a place where your happiness counts for something. Go for it!
If insurance is your primary concern, then Trans Tech may not be an option for you.
The family insurance is horrid, over $1200 a month I believe, and the single coverage would have cost me $300 a month. I had to pass on the job due to this. I would be working just for the insurance.
Your husband tech guys are not the bible. You have go give access for tech sm
support to get onto your computer. Just sit there and watch everything they do. If you still feel uncomfortable do not take the job.
Agree. You could be a Surgical Tech or Respiratory Therapy or a Med. Tech. nm
Re: AMA Trans
Hi. I also did their mentoring program, but after 7 months, I found my own part time IC job. They called me one time to offer me a hospital position, and asked if I was interested in it. I never heard anything more about it after that, and passed up a couple of good opportunities elswhere while waiting. I eventually gave up and found two part time IC jobs on my own. The only thing I got from them was experience, I suppose. I think alot of it depends on how well they like you. Also, with the $400 I spent, what was included was a digital voice player, etc. I ended up replacing it because when i wanted a foot pedal, nothing was compatible with their software. They are affiliated with Opportunity Software, who tends to charge more than anyone else for a similar product, just to be compatible with their products. Make your own determinations, I guess, about whether it is a scam or not, I just know that they didn't do a whole lot for me, other than give me some experience. Good Luck.

Does anyone have any information or opinions on this company?  I am considering a position with them.  I searched the archives, but the postings are all old.
A. I strongly discouraged anyone I meet who has signed up for any kind of program at the community colleges or elsewhere who wants to learn transcription. It's really distressing to see people pay their hard earned money for training in a field that is virtually in the toilet. I find myself making 1/2 of what I was making 10 years ago as an MT with no benefits and 50% more grief.
Anybody do chiropractic trans?...
Have only done radiology before...was wondering if, with this background, would it be possible to break into working for local chiro's or if totally different type of work.  Anybody having done this type of transcription before with any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
chiro trans
Yes, I do several.  Not overly difficult.  You must absolutely know your anatomy, and there are several "maneuvers" and tests that you need to know.  If you have a Stedman's Ortho book, you should be fine. 
California trans
Yes, they are a great company.
med trans student
Please consider starting with something ultra-stodgy and respectable... like a large teaching hospital or a university. the larger, the better. You will need this kind of atmosphere for learing, and exchange of ideas. Once you've been there a few years, you will know your field better, and the +/- situations around you about other companies. You will know a WHOLE lot more about what you want to do with your time, and your career. Let them pay you, teach you, give you days off and benefits, and then from tht position of SECURITY, you make better decisions.
Med Trans Schools?
Hello!  Hoping that someone may be able to provide some guidance.  I am looking at starting school in about 1 month, but trying to determine if distance or class room learning would be best.  And how difficult is it to get started in the field?  Any assistance that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
Med Trans Schools?
I did distance learning through a community college for all of my courses, it was the only way I could even go to college with a job and family to tend to. I got just as good an education as some one who sat in class three times a week. However, you must be self disiplined to be able to set aside your own time to work and study. You also have to have a Proctor site, somewhere to go take test. You local community college should be where you go through for that. I also heard some libraries and schools participate too.
psych Trans
I did psychiatric years ago at a psych hospital before there were line counts and we were paid by the line. However I do remember that even the ESLs were somewhat repetitive. I don't know a lot about Expanders as I didn't learn with them, but from what I understand, they may be instrumental in helping you all making this line count. I would think that you should get the same line count as the rest of the company and it is unfair for them to make you get 500 more. Psych is sometimes considered easier in terminology, but on the other hand I found the reports to be very much longer. An op could be done much quicker. They should treat you all the same. I don't do radiology so I don't know why they have so much more, but this whole thing seems a little unfair to me.
cambridge trans
I tested at cambridge transcription and realized very quickly I hated legal transcription. However, I think they are a good company you can find them on the web. I think they also do corporate transcription, not sure what that's about.
There's several different "Global Trans"...
do you mean Global Transcription Services out of Davie, FL?

If so...I'd highly recommend them. There always seems to be work and the owner always pays on time (sometimes early).
can you work for two different trans. companies?

What harm is it to the company for another trans to know
what accounts they have? I know what account a lot of trans work on for other companies! I am another one who doesn't see what everyone is fussing about. It's not like hearing that hospital's name is going to send another transcription company after their work - everyone already knows that they have to have transcription so it's no big secret that SOMEONE is doing it???
It doesn't have to do w/ medical trans - SM
That's why this is the general board. Smoking and dinner message don't have anything to do w/ trans either. You ARE allowed to skip over posts that you aren't interested in instead of being sarcastic. :)
Did any of you not get paid by a trans. company?

This transcription company that I might work for says if you don't maintain 98% accuracy or higher for three consecutive work days, you won't get paid for those days that you don't maintain the 98% accuracy rate.

Has that ever happened to any of you?  Do you think it's a bad situation to get involved in?

Doctor office trans
Probably smaller companies is what you want to look for instead of large nationals.  Have you looked in your local newspaper?  How about approaching a few docs on your own?  I've done that before and did overflow for them. 
Global Trans in Florida

I posted this on the company forum, but no one replied.  I thought maybe it was overlooked.  Does any work for or know anything about Global Transcription in Florida?  Thanks a bunch

Are you sure you're not talking about e-Trans Plus? e-Tranz

e-Tranz does not offer benefits and have no employees, all ICs. 

The owner has a habit of not paying the NEW MTs whom she hires just to get back into TAT but then does not to pay them.  I was an MT for that company, and it was an awful and terribly stressful experience, and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. When I would email her (at first) and practically plead with her to pay me, she shot back some very sadistic and unprofessional emails, sounding as if she was getting joy from what she was doing.  It was the worst experience I'd ever had with any MTSO.  She blocked my emails, and I couldn't ever reach her by phone. 

She ended up paying me eventually after 2 months had passed since that last invoice, but that was only after I informed her via a third party that I would definitely be paying her a visit in person for a little face-to-face, one-on-one "discussion" about our little problem.

Please, please don't ever work there, especially if you live paycheck to paycheck and need that money to survive each month.

Any info on CTS central trans. serv.??

Can't find anything in archives.  You have to reveal so much with these companies so would like to know about your experiences with them.


On job board "New World Trans" ...I am wondering
firstly what kind of company they are when they cannot spell the word "pedal"  correctly and also 7 cents CAD??? What is the CAD?  Something fishy about his ad.

If so, any pro's or con's

Medical trans versus credit cards, what I had happen
I have a credit card for a department store who has a bank (a big famous band, by the way collect for them). I always pay online, but I have had trouble with this bank in the past. I couldn't get online to pay so my payment was late. They had someone call me from overseas, he would not tell me where but wanted to collect my payment over the phone (I had already by them paid through my bank bill payer). He wanted my address, telephohne #(which he had, he called me), my banking information to collect the payment). I said no way, how do I even know you work for this bank and I can hardly understand you and dohn't want my personal information overseas. He stated, "what do you care, I don't even live in the united States." Duh, what did that mean.

So, what I am saying is, he already had my information, he just wanted me to verify it and he probably did work for the bank but I really resented them sending my financial information overseas and have somebody in another country want to collect a payment out of my bank account. The bank did not have my account # though.

But.... what is happening is like with these kids taking guns to school, we get so desensitized by TV with so many cops and robbers, knowing creditors will be calling if we forget or don't make a payment, we just blurt it out. I don't anymore just because of knowing what can happen. This guy could have cleared out my bank account and what legal means would the bank have to prosecute someone overseas? Fire him? I won't even give this bank my account # because they want to charge 10.00 over the phone but it is free on line so I refuse to pay them over the phone, so they do this.

Big business can pay for the lobbyists on Capitol Hill, big, big bucks to get legislature for them to be able to do business overseas and save tons of money. Our president is one of the biggest helpers to this. I'll bet his records don't go overseas.
I had a lot of trouble with static in my C-phone. I replaced the phone cord and that made a big

difference.  Also, have you tried a different headset?  Also someone told me one time that there is a microphone under your volume control on the right corner of the C-phone.  It's a tiny hole.  If you break off a Q-tip and stick that into the hole that will squelch a lot of background noise and that worked as well.  As far as getting your C-phone service, I heard that Dictaphone is "sunsetting" C-phones at the end of this year.  Meaning, they aren't going to service them anymore as they are considered an obsolete technology.  So, I would contact Dictaphone and see what your options are.

I know very little about Lanier equipment.  I've not used it as extensively as Dictaphone.  Is there a local appliance repair place in your area?  You might ask one of those places to take a look at your equipment and see what they think.  Kinda scary, cause they could do more harm than good, but maybe worth a shot.

Not much help, I know.  But I thought I would share what tiny bit of obscure knowledge I do have. 

I've changed them between an old phone and new phone, but the same company, i.e. Nextel.
I use my c-phone whenever we travel. You can hook it directly into your room phone. Be sure and as
Couldn't open it but is this the one with music by the Trans-Siberian orchestra, the house? sm
If it is, it is totally awesome and I know I have saved it in my computer at home. I am not on my computer right now so can't view what you posted.
If co is Trans*m stay away! Do search for co info before making a decision about unpaid training
I think you can dial into most systems that require C-phone without having a C-phone nm
I am wondering if there is a way to use your C-phone with Vonage phone service?
May have to change phone companies, have switched to job using a C-phone. sm
Currently have Embarq (formerly Sprint), and my usage will be going up about 12,000 minutes a month.  What phone companies offer really unlimited for a flat rate?  TIA.
C-phone and ATT. There is no problem with the C-phone, but ATT wouldn't let me use unlimited.
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
I have a very loud hum when using my C-phone, but no hum when I'm using the regular phone. SM

Anyone else experience this problem with their C-phone?  Is there a problem with my C-phone?  At first I thought it was my telelphone line and called the phone company.  They sent a technician out to replace the lines and check the house, but the hum is still there on the C-phone.

It's driving me batty!

C-phone info regarding phone lines etc.
I am completely clueless on the subject of a C-phone.  Can someone help me understand exactly how this works?  Do you have to specifically have a separate "dial up internet" service to use the C-phone? I currently have cable internet and am wondering if there is anything else I need to get.  I guess I should contact my phone company.  At any rate, any help anyone could give would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you!
If you use a C-phone for work and have a digital phone

through cable, have you tried to take an incoming call?

We only have one phone line.  I rarely get/make calls and when I do we have cell phones.  I just started working with a C-phone and got digital phone.  I can go a month and my phone not ring, so far have gotten 3 calls today, but I'm afraid that if I try to answer the phone that I will lose my report. 

I guess I could pull up a report and have my husband call on his C-phone and test it that way and then if I lose it no biggie. 



Anyone use/try C-phone with Medicom's phone service?
Wondering if it works?
C-phone and phone line
I have cable for my Internet so I have my C-phone on my regular home phone line and forward my home phone number to my cell phone.
A c-phone is just a phone, with headphones sm

and a foot pedal.  You call into a number (hopefully 800 number), put in your codes, and a voice file comes on.  You use the headphones and the foot pedal, and transcribe on your computer into a word processing program, then send the finished file back per their directions.

The c-phone is not connected to the internet in any way.  There is no downloading involved.  It is just a phone by means of which you get your voice files.  It needs a phone line and you stay on the line the entire time.

c-phone from cell phone
I believe if you check with your cell phone carrier they have an adapter that you can use to plug into your cell phone from the c-phone. Not sure about this but I think I had a friend tell me she had to do this but it was a year or so ago. Hope this helps.
