Anybody know if they are compatible or if there are any glitches I should be aware of before I plunk down the dough? Thanks!

How did you get Stedmans SpellChecker to
Did you have to change some settings somewhere?  Please give me the details because when I try to install it it just quits the install process.  Thanks so much
You NEED the spellchecker. Go stedmans.com and get
Using Stedmans spellchecker with Meditech

Does anyone know if a Stedman's Medical/Pharmaceutical spellchecker works with Meditech program?

I currently use PCShorthand with it but mine does not recognize drug names.  I was thinking of buying Stedman's Spellchecker but how does this one work with Meditech.  I friend bought Stedmans and loves it so I was thinking of doing thet same but my friend is typing in Word and not Meditech. 

Does anyone know where a person could get a tutorial on Meditech as Help Button on the Meditech Help section when I am working is kinda of confusion.  This is what I get working as a remote IC person.  Trying to learn this system a little better.


 Thanks Pauline


Everytime you re-load Word you need to re-load Stedmans medical spellchecker.
It's not a MEDICAL spellchecker. You have to convince them to add the medical spellchecker.
unless you feel like adding 10,000 medical terms on your own time LOL
I think it's still $5.15 in FL until 2006...sm

it's going up to $6.15 in Florida this year I read......still not nearly enough in my opinion.....*tsk tsk*

But happy that the states may be taking it over....*S*

It IS ExText, Word is simply the word proccessor used. ExText is marketed
by Dictaphone with Transnet and ESP is the expansion software incorporated into it. I used this platform when I worked for the hospital. I believe Wordclient is the speech recognition portion of this platform.
No kidding. I was going to buy a 2006. nm

I don't expect anybody to read anybody else's mind for me?  Unless maybe you know how to read minds??

Will say it this way, seventies. Not 2006.
Class of 2006
Who said 0.00 because its just a high school graduation?  My middle son just graduated this year and we did give him a huge graduation party with a buffet, cake, ice cream, balloons, napkins imprinted with his name and "Class of 2006" on them, etc.  We did the party here in our home on a Sunday afternoon and invited family, close friends and a few teachers he had kept in touch with through the years.  Yes, it was his job to earn the diploma and such was expected of him; however, the party was our reward to him for a job well done.  He did receive lots of gifts -- some were money, some were things for college, etc.  The monetary gifts ranged from $5 to $200.  My son was just as grateful for the $5 gifts as he was for the $200 (grandparents).  He also received only cards from a few people who attended, and he was still grateful for their sharing his special day.  One of the gifts he was most excited about was a gift card to a bookstore.  He spent a couple of hours wandering around trying to decide what books he wanted to purchase.  Another gift he cherishes to this day is "A Book of Prayers for the Graduate."  Don't give more than you can afford.  If a card is the best one can do, then its enough because they're acknowledging an accomplishment and milestone in a young adult's life.
The 5th edition was put out in 2006. Definitely
Not able to see 2006 posts
How do I get to see posts from 2006?  The archives seem to show me 2004 and 2005.  Sorry if this is an obvious answer, but I am not seeing it. 
Sorry meant to say 2006.....- nm
$35K in 2006, PT. Last year sm
Argh! Probably about $28 to $30K. Took a job that kept running out of work. I have a full time job now and a PT IC. I think I will break $40K for 2008. I HOPE I do anyway.
Right, retired in 2006...sm
Due to medical problems, and I am certainly not up on the latest technology or who is getting what type of work. When I retired, V/R was just becoming widespread and I never was involved in it. I just loved the ESLs, but maybe they have gotten worse/more careless/truly don't GAS. My sister had one that I could hardly understand either.

Don't worry about the test. Like Iowan said, just register and take it. I had to drop mine when I retired, but I enjoyed having it when I was working. :)
Happy New Year 2006 to you! ...nm
NEWS = DISINFORMATION 2006!!! very sad...nm
Anyone else really disappointed with the 2006 QLDB?

This latest version seems like a beta version.  Could it be more time consuming with all the clicking, scrolling, and tabs required to click on?  Even the new search feature stinks as it does not bring what you typed in to the top, it just leaves it on the bottom and you must scroll to bring it up.  This one is definitely NOT built for production.  Has anyone figured out how to import things from previous versions of their drug book into this one?  I cannot figure it out with this version and my e-mails to them for help have gone unanswered thus far.

Is it faster than paging through a book?  Yes.  Is it up to the standards of their previous QLDBs?  Not in my opinion and I have been very happy with the electronic version since 1999.

Thanks...so much for Stedmans nm

I should have googled it.  Thanks again.

in Word click on Tools when you fully expand this option it may list Stedmans here if not then Click Tools then options and spelling and grammar and Stedmans should be listed under your custom dictionary.

Feel free to email if you need more assistance.
hi. Stedman's does run in the background. as long as your word dictionary is set to CUSTOM.DIC, it will be using it. There may be a folder in program files, and that is a good thing, in case you want to uninstall it. If you check your "add and remove programs" it may be listed in there, as well. as long as your medical words are not being underlined in red, you are fine.
I use Stedmans and
it works fine with Vista
Thanks for the links.
You can try Stedmans...

Stedmans CMT
Has anyone here purchased the Stedmans CD to ready for the CMT exam.  I am thinking about purchasing and was looking for some feedback about that one or any others some of you have tried and found that worked for you.  I understand the exam is very difficult and I really want to take it and pass it for that matter LOL.  Any help and guidance is much appreciated.
about stedmans
Hello, I just went to Word 2007, which is very helpful but now I have no Stedman's. My Stedman's is very old. I was wondering if anyone knows where to get Stedman's O7 or 08 cheaper than 99.00.

Thanks so much. Have a wonderful holiday.

wp and stedmans
Go into your wordperfect and open the spellchecker. There should be a tab for user dictionaries. Open that and insert new dictionary. There should be 3 with the stedmans title. Use all three
stedmans or you can
or you can just run the disc again and download it into your wordperfect. It should ask you what program you want to put it in
Yeah, I know, that's kinda what I'm thinking too. It's the only one I've used in all of my MT career, so kind of afraid to purchase something else. Thanks!
Health Insurance policy for 2006
is now charging a supplement payment for smokers and those that live with smokers. Does anyone else have this policy or getting for the next year? This not through MT companies.
Interesting article about best careers in 2006. sm
I know the Club Med there will not be open until June 2006, if that is of any help. sm

No doubt a travel agent could give you an idea of how things are.  If it was me, I think I'd wait a bit.  They were hit pretty hard, and there is a lot of cleanup, I'm sure.

Wherever you go, have some sun in the fun for me! 

2005-$12K, 2006 expect to make about $21K - sm
2005 --I would have made more but when my daughter got sick in 3/05 I could not work much with her going to chemo and just dealing with everything, so that hurt my income big time. Have 2 PT jobs, 1 is a small MTSO and the other is my own account. My goal for 2007 is $24K...would like to eventually get up to $30K.

Save your money on the 2006 version - why -
I have used the CD version ever since it has been available and loved it, UNTIL the 2006 version. It is very different from the prior versions. It is far more cumbersome to use, is not designed for speed, and was such a waste of time I went back to using the 2005 version and just adding in the new drugs. My comments and questions to Stedman's about their latest version went unanswered. Like I said, I was very pleased with the prior versions and updated every year, but I will never buy this product again unless it is MT friendly, which the 2006 version is NOT.
Please help - Stedmans/WP 5.1 question...
I recently switched to a new computer (Windows XP) and for some reason I cannot get my Stedmans spellchecker to work.  I use WP 5.1 dos and my Stedmans is version 6 for dos.  In WP location of files, it shows Stedmans correctly but when I run spell check, some really ancient version shows up.  Any ideas?  Thanks.
Stedmans GI & GU words
third edeition Is a good one. Been doing nephrology for 7 years email if you need to.
I rarely use my Stedmans
Its so much easier just to type in what your looking for!  I must have 20 books just sitting on my shelf!
Don't buy Stedmans Path/Lab CD!
I'm SO mad at Stedman's! I finally decided to go electronic and bought a med/surg equip CD and a path/lab CD. No problems with the former, but the latter will not work and disables MS Word! And I'm not the only one, as you can Google it on the internet and others are having the same problems. Somehow it interacts wrongly with different virus/spam protectors and will start throwing pages and pages of licensing cleanup alerts into your task manager, disabling your word processing. I called tech support last Friday and they said they'd get back to me. I called them back Tuesday and they said they still hadn't figured it out. I called them today, still nothing, so I got mad and returned the stupid CD for the book. Six days of "trying to figure it out"???? He had said before they could install an unlicensed copy since the licensing was the problem, but then days later said they couldn't figure it out.

They also send you an invoice saying your payment is due by X date (with the return envelope and the space to fill in how much you are paying of the total) when you've already paid by credit card. They also charged almost $20 shipping for 4 CDs that weigh a few ounces. I'm NOT happy!
Meditech and Stedmans
Does anyone use Meditech and Stedmans Medical/Pharmaceutical Spellchecker together?  I just purchased Stedmans to use while typing in Meditech and now someone told me it would not work? I have not tried it yet though.   I will keep Stedmans though to use in Word so no big money loss.
cmt reference stedmans sm
My main reason for wanting to purchase the Stedmans course is to get the feel of the test itself.  This way I am not going in totally blind as to how the test is done.  I have read the description online, but would really like to have an actual pre-type test to give me a feel for the platform.  That is really what I am most worried about.  That and grammar.  I have a great accuracy rating, I am just worried about not passing and want to be as prepared as I can be.  With that being said is the person out there who was offering the book for sale.  I would like to know how much you would like for it.  Thanks. 
Need help with Stedmans speller

My Stedmans keeps not loading or something.  It was working fine when I quit work Friday night.  Then yesterday it would not work.  I finally did a system restore and it worked after that fine.  Then today, same thing, it will not work. 

Can someone help me out with any suggestions?

Get the April 2006 Consumer Reports magazine...sm
It gives you a rundown on all vehicles as well as which ones have held up well and which ones haven't over the years. It's in the stores now or your local library should have a copy you can look at for free. :o)
