FTP stands for file transfer protocol.

It is transferring files.  You log onto the FTP site using software, such as Core FTP Lite that is free, then you can upload and download files on the company's FTP server.

Here's the link to the free download of Core FTP Lite.


File transfer protocol
FTP is File Transfer Protocol.

It is a method of sending files between two computers that requires a software program to accomplish the task. Think of it like Windows Explorer to move files between computers.

You need to have a server that acts as a holder where files can be uploaded to and downloaded from by parties who have access to that specific site, identified by their ISP numbers and not a name (like mtstars.com).

Ever tried CC File Transfer? sm
I wonder if it is HIPAA-compliant. Any responses are appreciated.

File Transfer
I am currently using Novuscript as my file transfer provider.  I only do a very small amount of transcription for 1 doctor, and this is costing me around $50 a month.  Does anyone have any suggestions for a more economical HIPAA compliant file transfer method.
large file transfer
My MTSO sends large volumes of new account info (tons of normals, etc) in compressed files thru e-mail. Don't know anything else about compressed files, but thought it might be worth checking out.
File Transfer Questions
I work with C-phone for dictation - internet for transcription. Is it possible to dial into the C-phone and transfer the voice to a file on the computer, simulating voice file. All suggestions for software conversions available, would be greatly appreciated. Please email to aloha2@yaho.com.
File transfer suggestions

I currently do a small amount of transcription for a doctor's office and have been using Novuscript to transfer files and dictation.  Does anyone have any suggestions that might be less expensive that are HIPAA compliant for file transfer and dictation transfer.

VPN or secure file transfer
Are all VPN's secure? If not, which ones are? I need to purchase one soon.
Secure file transfer......(sm)
I've heard of several people using FilePhile for secure file transfers, although I have no personal experience with it. It's supposed to be free, easy, and HIPAA compliant.

Anyone get their MQ aco file to transfer to Keystrokes DQS? sm
I have tried and tried to get this to transfer over, but their is only spot I can find in the DQS system for it. I have copied my old file there, and it still only shows the header file preloaded in DQS. Anyone else have any luck with this? Thanks :)
I wasn't able to transfer my file, but someone referred me to..sm

this Productivity Talk board and I e-mailed the "moderator" of the board (and who seems to be the only person in the world who knows how to do this) two weeks ago and I've gotten no response, so that may just be a waste of time, but you could try it.  I have had to manually re-enter my auto corrects yet again.  I went from SmarType on YOG to DQS to new job in Word all in two months.  I so hope I don't have to do this again for a very long time.

Good luck.

Easy backup file transfer alternative for non-tech-savvy client
Hello all,

I have a new client who is not tech-savvy at all. She lost her Transcriptionist and transcriptions are backing up. She is so desperate she is willing to try digital with me. (yay) I hope everything with the FTP setup goes easily for her, but if for some unforseeable reason we cannot get it to work, I was wondering if someone here could recommend an easy alternative, if only to get the first few dictations to me while we work out the FTP. She is incredibly frustrated and on edge at the moment, so anything to ease this transition would be a lifesaver!

Thank you all so much for your help!
I don't think so...they have changed the protocol--sm
for numbers, in particular, at least three times in the last five years. I know, because it gets annoying to have to change the way I do things everytime they want to sell another book for $80 a pop. They started out with numbers 1 through 10 being spelled out and using numbers above 10. Then it was numbers instead of roman numerals, and then it was back to using all numbers and not spelling them out....shheeesh make up your minds! and that is all within the last five 5 years. I swear they do it just to sell more books and not because any of it is right or wrong, or *standard*, because it isn't. JMO
ARDSNet protocol
What is the correct way to transcribe ARDSNet? I've seen it as ARDSNet and ARDS-net.
SCIP or SKIP protocol
Has anyone ever heard of SCIP or SKIP protocol? This is a surgeon talking about prophylactic antibiotics. I have found on the internet SCIP protocol for skin care intervention program but am not sure if this is reliable info. Does anyone know which way to spell this/what this is and have a source to back it up?

Notice on the "Admission protocol" page the picture of the
that's what it stands for?
I never knew what AHDI stood for, it stands for ass for healthcare document in INDIA!!!! or is that just a joke.

No, I think it stands for -
Association of Hindi-speaking Dufuses, Inc.
Rename your normal.dot file to something else then restart Word. It will create a new file.
I think the "R" actually stands for reserved. nm
As it stands now, according to the chat
room, is that Kaysar and Jennifer are the only two left. Apparently James gave up and walked out. Go Kaysar!
SM stands for see message
I simply believe in God and what he stands for..
I can't really say I am a Christian or any other particular faith. I know you have very strong convictions and I think it is wonderful, but isn't it funny how we follow and obey the bible in some instances and don't in others. The bible is a guide for us to live by. If we took it seriously, women would be in dresses, men would be working, women would not, women would have long hair, etc. Actually, Halloween is a religious day.. "The festival of Halloween is based on a combination of the Christian commemoration of the departed faithful (All Saints' Day) with the pre-Christian Celtic feast associated with a celebration of the end of summer and the Celtic New Year."

Want to know what BOS stands for? Oh yeah,
I think it is the same type of file, so rename it and replace your autocorrect file with your DQS us
Help..I lost my word file. How can I retreive a file that has been changed? sm

I was working on a large file and had saved it in Word. I then went back to work on the file and hit a key that made the page go blank.  When I went to close the document it asked me to save any changes on the document. I answered yes, and now when I click on that document it is all blank! Shouldnt the previous info saved be there, even if the current stuff is not? Please help me!! Thank you

Depends on the file format of the Short Cuts file.
ShortHand comes with a utility file that can import various formats. You can get that file with the trial download of SH.

No, it stands for Screw Subcontractors!

DVI stands for Digital Voice something, I

can't remember.  I use this system.  My company provided my foot pedal/software.  I think the company has to provide the software, as I've never seen a single user software available.   Foot pedal will be $60-$80 depending on where you get it, may be able to find on e-bay cheaper.  

Do a Google search for DVI compatible foot pedal.  I don't recommend TVPS.com.

Thank you, but I'm quite aware what HIPAA stands for.
That's why it bothers me is because so many people have it wrong. Obviously, the MTSO doesn't care about quality if she can't even get it right. What's the skin off your nose if it bothers me? Why does it bother you that it bothers me? I don't need to get over it. I'm quite happy being bothered by it. Bother, bother, bother.
The industry is changing and as it stands

now I would not recommend this field to anyone, but I am not worried about not having a job, at least not in the next 5 years.  I am good at what I do and can do any work type, can do ESLs with little problem, have done QA, so I feel like there will always be a job as long as I want it.  The pay may never get any better though. 

There aren't that many jobs available, but there are so many people looking for work that a lot of companies don't feel like they need to pay to advertise.   Check with employment agencies or temporary agencies.  I worked for  temporary agency years ago and got offered full-time positions with every place I worked.

Not sure what your career of choice is in, but you can get just about any degree on-line, or at least do all the basic courses. 

Not sure of your financial situation, but if still paying for technical school, going part-time probably won't work for you so you could go to school or get in some type of internship for whatever you wanted to do.   

You can sit back and wait for someone to knock on your door and offer you your dream job, but you'll most likely die waiting, or you can get your goal and work towards it.  If you aren't willing to do that, then you are stuck where you are. 

Taylor looks constipated when he stands still
Focus stands for Foreign

Focus is an Indian company, you know.  Most who have been there were not happy, and many MTs only go there because they are fresh out of school and find it hard to get the experience they need.  Just FYI.

Oh, man. The things I am thinkin' BD stands
No you're not wrong but my statement stands too
If it was your daughter missing and the media basically concentrated on a demographic other than yours, you'd be wondering why you can't get help for your daughter too. Media looks for sensationalism and the since outrage currently involves young children or affluent, pretty, white young adult females, that's what the media flocks to.
Maybe you are just uptight about one night stands? You should have stayed to the end.
Ooops, my NM stands for nightmares in my expander, NM
MTSO stands for Medical Transcription
Service Owner and that is what Nationals are so, no, there is no difference. Not a dumb question at all!
...with your user.aco file. Save your autocorrect file to somewhere else. nm
You can save the SH file in a text file and import to IT that way. sm
You may have to do some cleanup in the SH text file, but it sure would be faster than re-entering them all manually.
File taxes under the name on file w Social Security....
Name on W2 doesn't have to match, but your tax return has to match SS records. They don't want your marriage license or anything else. Did that for 13 years as instructed by IRS. Didn't have to change it with SS until state changed rules requiring drivers license to match SS records. Still use my maiden name in some limited circumstances.
Sorry about that. It doesn't really matter what the "R" stands for. Please accept my apolog
being catty. Hope you have a good evening.
MQ transfer
Don't bother - they are now transferring those "wonderful" Birmingham employees elsewhere and the company is going to the dogs.
MQ Transfer

Would you mind telling us where you were transferred to?? One o f the MT's in our office is ruuning into the same problem you had--she works 7 days a week and runs out of work  in all of her 4 accts but yet they (Foxboro) will call her on monday morning to tell her that they are out of TAT in her primary act. She did exactly what you did and used another ID number and lo and behold there was all the work, being held for someone else

I was transferred from Old Bridge, N.J. to Warminster, PA. Old Bridge closed March 31. Another MT, who is an email friend of mine, also works out of Foxboro and she is out of work a lot lately, too.
How do you transfer

AutoText from Word to a disk or flash drive. I can't figure out how to get it on there. TIA

an .exe file is not a voice file
I'm no techie, but it sounds like they might've sent the wrong file by mistake. Or could it be a program you need for testing/working for them that they sent? What is the name of the file (if it is something you can say here)?
