Instant Text works with EMDAT's platform
Inscribe as it does with eScription's platform editScript.

No adjustments are necessary. You just link Instant Text a first time to these platforms and from then on IT links automatically.

If you have a ShortHand spf file you can easily convert it to an Instant Text glossary.

Instant Text works with 5.1. s/m
It's a bit pricy at $189, but it's the best program I've ever used.  I'll sell you mine (very cheap!) along with extra glossaries I bought if you are interested.  Just shoot me an email.  You can check out their website.  Just Google either Instant Text Pro V or Textware.  Good luck!

You should be able to use Instant Text with both applications. If you need help with any issues, let us know by sending an email to support@textware.com

Instant Text also works with Meditech
Instant Text works with Meditech..no need
to download anything as IT links to it.  IMO, Instant Text is the best Expander on the market, much more flexible than anything else. 
Instant Text works with Bayscribe.
Instant Text expander..Does anyone know if it works with Bayscribe? sm
and how expensive it is?  I currently use ShortHand but reading some of the posts below feel I might be interested in trying Instant Text.  Do you know if I would be able to transfer my Shorthand abbreviations into Instant Text?  Thanks for your help!
Instant Text works with Meditech and most any other program.
Which version of emdat are you using?
What version of Emdat?
I have been training on Emdat for Lee Perfect and you can use PC ShortHand if when you are at the log-in screen, you mark the box that says something like Windows Media (Inscribe full control). I use PC Shorthand and it works just fine. I just wish I could figure out how to use my Stedman's Medical/Pharmaceutical Spellchecker. How long have you been using it? Good luck!
EMDAT Version 4.91.309
This is the version of EMDAT that I work in. Before logging on, in the log-in screen there are options you can choose and in my version you can choose Built In Player (Inscribe), Express Scribe, Windows Media (Inscribe Full Control), I check Express Scribe, and then you can use other expanders. I use PC Shorthand, but I would imagine you could use just about any one you like. Also, I don't know what company you work for, but it does not mess up the format where I work. The spellchecker in EMDAT is the worst I have ever seen. I would not work in EMDAT if I had to use it...it just can't be trusted.
older version Emdat Inscribe
after receiving the info on here, I decided that I wanted to KEEP Emdat Inscribe 4.3.202. (It can still be downloaded and my company has not told us to upgrade.) If I DO upgrade to the newest, which is 4.9 I think...are you saying that the Infinity pedal will work with the newest Emdat by configuring the pedal? I've done that in the past, but would you mind sending the process in case I do have to upgrade. I wish they'd leave things as they are.
Emdat Software Question for Emdat Users


I have a question about the Emdat software.  Regarding the cc: box, sometimes, you have to type in the address, because the address is not in the database.  I have found that when you try to pause the audio with either the foot pedal or the "F" key assigned to pause while typing the address, the audion will not pause; it keeps on playing.  You should be able to pause the audio while trying to type the address into the database.  Anyone else notice this, anyone?  Thank you kindly.

Emdat Inscribe Auto text

New to Inscribe and when I try to expand my word in auto text the cursor jumps to the next line.  Even did this when I tried a key other than the enter key.  Also have Instant text(older version, Instant Text III Pro, but seems to be taking a long time to get used to.  Any thoughts on these two expanders, which is better to use?  Thank you

Instant Text Version here sm
Does Emdat work with F keys or is is something else? Is Emdat
Works is a dumbed down version of Word and Excel. You get the full version of Word in the Suite.
The Works Suite is a cheaper way of getting a full version of Word if you don't want or need the other applications in Office.
ShortHand is up to version 9, at least, now, as it's what I have. Maybe v.10 is in the works?? nm
Version 10 only works with Vista. You need 9 for XP.
I went with the Student version and it works fine...
certainly haven't found anything missing that I'm in need of! 
Just downloaded the newest version, 4.17, and it works with .dss.

I'm glad that the NCH people fixed this. Three cheers for them!

Yes the Works Suite is a full version - sm
of MS Word not an upgrade. It just has a lot of other programs most people don't use. I only use the MS Word program and do not install any of the suite stuff as it is.
If you have the Works Suite you qualify for the upgrade version.
I just recently bought the Small Business version upgrade with Word 2003 (the computer came with Works Suite)for my new computer. It still has Windows XP. I have Word 2002 with Works Suite on my other computer. I am thinking about getting the Student Teacher edition for my other computer and my mom's computer, as it can be put on 3 computers. My license with the Small Business upgrade says one computer only. I was a little disappointed about this, as I wanted to put in on both computers. I thought I could use it on both as long as I personally used both of them, but not at the same time.
Works ok, but you get what you pay for. I think there is a free trial version. Not nearly as good
You just have to be careful which version of Works you're buying. sm
Plain Works does not have Word at all, only a word processor that "looks" like Word. The Works Suite has Word 2002. To get Word 2003, you have to get the Works "Plus" 2008 version.
No, the Works "Suite" has a full version of Word... sm
that is compatible. It's the plain Works version that usually comes installed on new computers that uses a different file format and is not compatible. You just have to be careful that you are buying the Suite.
What is the version of word for windows that works best for you? Still working off 2000.
No. EditScript works fine with my 2003 Word version. sm
It is ExText with Word 2000 that I am worried about interfering with my EditScript from eScription.

Sorry that happened to you. I have been running Word 2003 with eScription for about 4 years now. Everything works great!
Full Word is in the Works "Suite," not plain Works.
Works saves files in a different format, but you can open them in Word if you have the correct filter installed.
RIGHT!!! Someone who works 16 hours and someone who works 60 will have a HUGE difference. NM
Shorthand works with every program, it works outside the program you use, does not interfere.

Looked at it for our company as well.....and after using it as an MT for a week, decided it was not for us.....Too expensive, slow (cut my production by half) and uses HTML base rather than plain text base. Our investigation has confirmed that MedPen is a far superior program and you don't have to pay a huge sum up front, then per line just to use the program. EMDAT also outsources to other companies and outsource overseas as well, so please do your homework before you make a decision.

In Reply to: Emdat and 4 cents a line - Please help! posted by Mary on October 06, 2004 at 08:12:51:

First of all, let me clarify something for you. Emdat is a transcription platform, and while it is cumbersome to some and not so cumbersome to others, the MTSO who uses Emdat is the one who controls the line rate, etc. 4 cpl is ridiculously low for anything other than QA. Your dictators will vary in quality, obviously, just like anywhere else. If your skills are good and you are insulted by 4 cpl (which you should be), keep looking. Something better will certainly come your way.

I wanted to clear the air about Emdat because my company uses Emdat also; however, our starting line rate is double what you quoted, and I didn't want people to associate Emdat with low line rates.


Is there anyone out there that can say good things about EMDAT?  I would love any kind of input about it?  I am interested in working for a company that uses it.


I did not think IT worked with emdat. Is it hard to install on emdat? Would like to try and use it if it would would work.
Just CURIOUS!!! Do you enjoy being an IDIOT/JERK? If you go around looking for ways to cut or degrade others comments then you must have some problems. GET A LIFE!!

I like Emdat.  I have been using for over 2 years.  When they made the upgrade though, they took out the option to key in word.  I don't like that. But since I have a bad leg on the right side, I can use the hand controls and it works pretty good.  It takes a while to set up your autotext, but again, once it is done, your line count can soar.   




Does anyone know if Voice Recognition software can be used with Emdat Inscribe.  The office is closed and I am way behind in my typing.  I know that it does type on the screen, but I also know that they have had issues with copy and past (although that is not what this would be) before and I did not want to use it if that would cause the same type of problem.

Emdat- what's that?
Emdat-Inscribe is a platfor that you work out of. It has a spell checker, it has the capabilities of putting in all pertinent patient info for you so all you do is type. At least that is how it was when I typed in it...hope that helps, plus much more on that.

I've used Emdat for the last 2+ years.  I hated it at first but it's ok now.  We have to put our demographics in, it all depends how the company is set up.  I don't think line counts are that great compared with Word or other platforms.  It was definitely not developed with Transcriptionist input but has gotten better/more user friendly.  Good Luck!

I have completed their training and just can't seem to get anywhere with AutoText.  Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I have tried putting in AutoText different ways, but that does not make any difference. What I hate is having to put in all of my autocorrects over again from scratch. I guess I will just keep working with it. IT Pro V looks good too. I will probably eventually buy that. Thanks for the replys.
wondering, I wrote out a lengthy e-mail about Emdat but then found out you could not receive it.  I don't have time to write it out again but if you have a specific question, maybe I could help you with that.

Have you completed their on-line training?


I am going to Emdat training this morning and will post again if I learn anything I think would help you.  Emdat is not my favorite and I find it hard to get a good line count with it too.

the low was is with Emdat
(Inscribe) and the other line count is just using MS Word.  I have heard others say Emdat has a low line count too, now that I think about it.
I just think if you are placing an ad for a job from a transcription company and expect perfect work back, then the ad should not have any mistakes. Wonder who is proofing their work!lol.
I had trouble with it.  I don't like typing in boxes, so I would choose the type in Word option; however, it doesn't pull all of what you type in Word and put it in the appropriate place.  The symbols do not translate between what you type in Word and the Emdat format.  An example . . . when I would type the ' and " signs it would not come up on the Emdat screen as such.  It was a complete waste of time.  Perhaps it just doesn't fit well with Word 2003?  I was constantly getting faulted for things I was told I did not type and I know I did.  The spell checker is horrible.  It flags all medical words incorrect or correct.  I will not ever work with it again.
