You probably have a lot of words in the autocorrect exceptions if
you backspace a lot. Click the exceptions button and go through all of the tabs in the dialog box and delete the words you don't want in there. Uncheck automatically add words on all of the tabs. That's the setting that will add words and change them to no proofing.
The autocorrect dialog box has an exceptions button. Click that and delete what you want.
If MT has checked off list of reports delivered,
You can import your AutoCorrect list

Hi Patty,

You can import your AutoCorrect list into Instant Text so you can continue using the list that you have already created.

IT will expand using the font that is currently active in your document.  If you have an entry that you want to be in a certain font every time you expand, you can do that as well using Formatted Entries.

For more information on IT V Pro, please see the link below.  Or you can always give us a call at 800-355-5251.

Kind regards,


Printing AutoCorrect List
Does anyone know how to print the autocorrect list on Microsoft Word 2007?  I've searched it on Google, but I keep getting odd articles that don't make any sense to me at all.  If anyone can explain it to me in layman's terms, I would be forever grateful!  Thanks!
Autocorrect list of everyday
I am looking for a list of everyday short phrases that we type alot because I know I am missing some.  Is there a website that has a list?  Also, is there a way to compile a list from the reports we type to show which phrases and words are used the most?  Isn't there software that does this?  Thanks a lot 
macro to import expansion list into MSWord Autocorrect

Here is my macro that will import your expansions into MSWord.  Your list needs to be in the following format for this macro to work:

tp=the patient



There needs to be a hard return at the end of each entry.  If you have any expansions that contain an equal sign or a hard return, you will need to enter those into your autocorrect manually.  Here is the macro:

Sub Add2AutoCorrectList()
Dim AddName, AddValue As String
Dim W, C, A, L, Y, T, N As Long
Dim CountWords As Boolean
Selection.WholeStory: Selection.Collapse
N = ActiveDocument.Words.Count: C = 0: A = 0: T = 0
ScreenUpdating = False
While N > 0
x = Selection.MoveEndUntil(cset:=("=), Count:=wdForward)
    If x = 0 Then
    End If
Selection.MoveEndUntil cset:=("=), Count:=wdForward
AddName = Trim(Selection.Text)
L = Selection.Words.Count
With Selection
    .Delete: .Delete
    .MoveEndUntil cset:=Chr$(13), Count:=wdForward
End With
AddValue = Trim(Selection.Text)
Y = Selection.Words.Count
AutoCorrect.Entries.Add (AddName), Value:=(AddValue)
Selection.Delete , Count:=2
T = L + 2
N = N - T
C = C + 1
A = A + 1
If N < 1000 Then
ScreenUpdating = True
N = ActiveDocument.Words.Count
End If

If A = 100 Then
'ScreenUpdating = True
StatusBar = N & " " & C & " " & " entries processed!"
A = 0
End If

End Sub

One word of warning:  When I posted a line counting macro here some time ago, I could not get a quote mark in the code to post, so the macro as posted would not work, and I had to followup with a post explaining how to correct that.  This macro is a bit more complicated than the other one was, and although I will look at the code as soon as this posts, if it doesn't come through perfectly, and you don't understand my corrections, you can e-mail and I will send it to you.

Also, I wrote a companion macro that will list your autocorrect into a document so that you can import it into another computer or just keep it as a backup in case you lose your normal.dot.


Can I transfer instant text word list to autocorrect??
Hi all. Well I have a ton of entries stored in my Instant Text program. The problem is, that now that I am using Editscript version 8 instead of version 6, whenever I use my instant text program, it freezes up on me.. So I am just wondering, is there any way that I can transfer over my IT word lists over to autocorrect in microsoft word?? I think this is the only text Expander I can use with editscript 8. I really appreciate any help with this!!
Did you check and see what's checked or not checked in Preferences. Maybe something got messed up
Well, there are exceptions to every rule, and as always, the few ruin it for the many.

I am a newbie, even less, I am still a student, an online student. And yes, I am hoping to work from home, and bring in any amount of money I can.

I am not trying to step on anyones toes, insult anyone, or the like. Don't think this is an easy profession, never did. I was a paralegal and a CNA before I stayed home with the kids.

Anyway, I agree with the negativity on here. On the other hand, I have also learned alot and got a lot of great info from some members of t his board.

Sorry y'all feel that way. Guess I can't really blame ya. :)
and there are so many exceptions to all those rule! lol
that's the english language for ya! I really don't know.
Maybe there are exceptions per client.
One client I has uses part of the BOS, other things they ignore.
Tell her NO exceptions, work has to be back. If she is not

able to do the work don't give it to her.   You wouldn't tolerate it with the other MTs and I sure which I had an account that wouldn't drop me if work was that late.  Send her (if you haven't already) a form where you state TAT and ask for her commitment on a monthly basis.   You can state in the form that failure to meet TAT could/would result in termination.   She is taking advantage of you but only because you allow her too.  

Maybe only give her work 2 days a week  and give her only an amount that she seems to be doing currently.  If you give her less work maybe she will be able to meet TAT. 


Exceptions to everything but majority parents
There are exceptions when Word won't cap after periods, like in numbers or after colons.
Personally, I think the books are a waste of money, with a few exceptions. sm
These days, I would get the CD instead of the book, if that option were available.

That said, I don't see the need for, nor can I justify the expense of, the standard reference series, like Stedman's. For the most part, anatomy doesn't change from year to year, and neither does the vast majority of the terminology. Of course, there are new procedures, new terms, etc., but chances are your book won't be up to date on those. So, a ratty old (cheap) used copy might be handy, but the Internet is much faster (provided you know how to use it properly and don't just accept any ol' c--p you find :-).

At most, I'd recommend (A) Stedman's Medical and Surgical Equipment Words (or whatever they're calling it in its latest incarnation), and perhaps the Stedman's word book pertaining to your speciality, if you have just one or two.

Otherwise, save your money.
those are exceptions to the rule and those are KING-PIN drug dealers, not the middle men who run
the drugs. If you have an EDUCATION and make enough money you don't have to deal drugs. The kids in ghettos running the drugs who are getting busted are doing this because they have no education and nothing else to do to make money. THEM's the proven statistics.

You are talking about apples and oranges. Yeah there is a temporarily rich meth guy living in a nice house but the majority of the rich guys are using punk kids with no education to sell the drugs. They aren't their on the corner in the ghetto dealing their own drugs.
well it added up for me,
characters divided by 65 -- they DO count spaces.

plus i just rec'd the unexpected check for 'errors' of over $400, yeehah!! and another letter explaining the new 'pay plan' which includes another week off for FT'ers, pay based upon experience, etc. MQ, like i've said before, is always improving, i love this company!! i just hope they continue to be who they are and not ever sell out!!
Thanks for your Feedback.

Should have added.
new platform, even after 3 months typing about 300 lines less per day.  Plus they might be doing away with incentive pay, so seeing what is "out there."  The insurance coverage also got so much worse with 3,000.00 deductible, no meds covered, etc., which is a huge benefit loss.  Will probably stay there, but seeing what other companies offer for a good overall pay/benefit package.
Oh I also added more RAM
I also added more RAM and it made not one whit of difference
ADDED: She knows she's likely to lose some accounts due to poor quality but figures she'll worry about that later. I think it's a horrendous way to run a business, but nevertheless, it's exactly the way it's being done.
Also, I should have added that if your
facility goes by BOS, a copy of that is also an excellent idea. BOS2 is what is most commonly used, however there is a BOS3 out now. I would not purchase these, however, until I had a job and was told that I needed them as they can be quite expensive and not everyone has flipped over to BOS3. There are many things in these books on style, how to type certain things in reports (not always logical), etc.
Have you added in the other benefits

The company has great benefits that can add up to several thousand a year. Paid downtime. Paid holidays. Vacation/PTO starting the first year. No equipment rental fee. Big discount on word books. Rental library for medical education. Reimbursement for continuing education. Decent insurance. Might make a difference.

Added" rather pay to have it done right the first time.
The added pay for the CMT some companies SM
pay, like mine, is on top of basic pay, so you'd even make more than yourself if you had the credential.
One more thing that can be added - (sm)
You said: 'I was informed by 48 out of 54 potential employers that the CMT Credential that I thought I earned was false, counterfeit, and not worth the paper it was printed on.'

To all thinking of obtaining AHDI's CMT test (supposedly the 'legit' certification):


How do you spell S-C-A-M ?
TL is a do nothing, worthless added layer of
management to make some people think they are more important than they really are.  Most of them know jack-sh** about anything, are just company pets and get paid to be a PITA.  
I have explained several times now that we have added the
Indian URL to the Google Adsense filter so that it will stop appearing, but it does take a few days for it to take effect.  We have NO control over Google when a banner appears, but we can remove it though it does take time on Google's part.
Cool! Thanks. I added it to my favorites!
That is because tobacco co. added 10% more nicotine
I quit for fives years beginning in 1989. It was difficult but five years is a long time. Then, married a smoker...well, tried to quit again numerous times, going for 1-1/2 years without only to start again in 2002 and then 10 months without and starting again this past June.

I want to quit, the price is outrageous. The cough is so unappealing. And my mother just died of respiratory failure.

sry that should be c'mon, my shorthand was on and added the th. nm
He added over 200 to the counter right from the start.

It's a trick.

Hi, Lisa. Have you added macros to SM
your Expander yet for many of the common VR changes--such as for backspacing over a comma, adding a period, and capping the first word of the new sentence? How do you drop common words like, say, "she" into a sentence on the run? I hit "k" and in it goes, but I'm off scanning the next line by then and don't actually see it. Do you constantly use your program's function for jumping the cursor to the point of dictation and vice versa (assuming it has one)? This is a big speeder-upper.

And a reality that's hard for some to run into: Editing skills and talents are different than transcribing skills and talents. Reading fast and accurate becomes big. Punctuating fast on the run was always desirable, but it's more significant now as the ability to simply get the letters on paper becomes less so. Are you one of those this work suits or one it doesn't? If yes, keep working on speed. If not, move on sooner rather than later.
Glad you added that (:) to clarify. (nm)
I signed it, and added my 2 cents, as well.
Productivity board to be added today.
The India ad is a Google ad and has been added not to show, however

it does not not remove instantly. It usually takes hours to a day for these types of ads to no longer appear.  We have no control over what ads pop up, but we can set them up to no longer appear once we see them and can block the URL. 

Thank you.

Should have added below that my Infinity USB pedal works with it as well.

It would be a lot of added risk to an already risky surgery. nm
oops..i added my feathered friends.
I guess I should have added, now I use EXText with ESP and I love it. I just wonder if I could
even make it better.  I have ShortHand too, but I stopped using that when I started this job because they have ESP. 
I signed it, and added my 2 cents' worth, as well!
Maybe we should print copies of this letter, stand outside hospitals and clinics, and hand copies of it to patients as they're leaving. Or else put it on their windshields in the parking lot.
medical abbreviation list and medical drug list

Anyone there who could help me out finding the latest abbreviations list.
I even want the latest drug list because my current program does not have many drugs.

So if anyone could suggest anything which is available online for informationd quick look purposes.

any help for medical abbreviation list and medical drug list would be very helpful.

The ad above for Naukri is a Google ad & is not allowed on this site. It has been added to our

our Google filter, however it takes about 4 to 6 hours for it to be removed.  We have no control what Google ads appear, but we can filter them out.

Only US MTSOs whether they outsource offshore or not can post on MTStars, however offshore services and offshore job banks cannot.

I should have added to type it as "corneals" if verbatim account.
As per your request, Pets and Entertainment forums have been added.

Just added a favorite funny to the Comedy Stop

It was popular in the 1990s, but I was able to find it again by googling.   I discovered that it is not a true story, which is disappointing, but just pretend it is. 

You were just snotty, rude, and added nothing intelligent to the thread.
