Totally up to your client as to a plain underline, a bracketed space, blank w/the time on the
Don't be afraid of it. It's really hard to mess up Oriental cooking.

Here are the links to the recipes that I printed off of Google.  (I love the Internet!  No more cookbooks, only Google for recipes.)  I cheated on the plum sauce by buying a jar because our plums aren't quite ripe yet.  Buy the egg roll skins instead of trying to make your own, too.


For the fried rice, you can use any type of rice.  I use brown basmati or jasmine rice mostly.  You can also throw in extra vegetables and leftover meats (pork, beef, chicken) to make a meal out of it instead of a side dish.  I like those Oriental pea pods, bok choy, water chestnuts, baby corn, and Chinese cabbage.


I'm going to combine and modify the eggroll recipes so I have shrimp/pork egg rolls.  I use canola oil instead of vegetable, peanut, or sesame oil.  I don't care for sesame seeds or bamboo sprouts, so I add extra water chestnuts.  Use frozen or fresh instead of canned crab or shrimp.  Use diced, boneless pork chops instead of ground pork or sausage.

Is there a space or a hard return at the end of your entry? sm
that's the only thing I can thing of that would cause this. In the "text to expand" box, hit ctrl+end and this will take you to the very end of your expansion. Maybe there's a space or something there that you can't see.

I know you've been having a lot of trouble with this lately! Good luck!
I always double-space. Single is too hard to read, and
i'd be afraid I would type what I heard on the radio

When I worked in-house my manager and a coworker were having a conversation and I typed a couple sentences of it without realizing. 

Shorthand users: Is there a way to type a word, use a slash and then type another word..sm

immediately following the slash and have it expand.  For example if I needed to transcribe mass/sebaceous cyst, is there a way to use my expanded sebaceous cyst without having to back space after I type the slash mark?  TIA

A KVM switch will let you use 2 different hard drives on the same monitor. Saves much space
Check out KVM switch.  I used my hospital computer provided to me when I first started with MQ.  I used the KVM switch and that way I didn't have to invest in a monitor right off the bat.  All I needed was a hard drive to dump the MQ program into.  Then I could switch back and forth from one hard drive to the other.  I don't know if this is what you are looking for but just thought I'd add this here as it has saved me much money and space.
If there is a company out there that let's you type on a blank page, I haven't found it. I
been an MT for 13 years now and worked at home for about 11 of those years and never found a company that I felt truly treated their MT's fair.
GOT IT!!!! -year-old works and just type 15- space yo
Thanks so much!!
Word counts the blank lines between paragraphs unless you change
your paragraph style to double space when you hit enter. You need to change the "after" setting in the spacing section of the paragraph dialog box to the point size of the font you are using and click the Default button. You'll probably want to do this in a separate template unless you want this setting for all new documents.
I thought Word counted blank lines using this method. I think the OP is looking for Abacus. nm
You can set Word to not count blank lines by changing your paragraph style
to automatically double space after the paragraph.
EXText word client blank screen everytime I login
I am using EXText Word Client software with Transnet. I am getting a blank screen everytime I login. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software an upgraded but still errors out the same way. Are there any EXtexters who could help?

Please don't type in all caps, hard

to read and is considered screaming on the net. 

I can barely type I'm laughing so hard
Yes, you are going to get slammed for saying some of that stuff, but it is Hilarry-ious!!! And, oh so true. Oh, my side hurts!
MedQuist? Ctrl+shift+F, period, space, tab, period, space, space, change all. nm
So what do you do to keep motivated to type during the work day? Sometimes I find it so hard to...

stay focused.  When you're working at home it is soooo easy to turn on the TV, take frequent breaks to answer the phone, talk to hubbie, play with the kids, take a hot bath, play solitaire on the PC, surf the net, post on a message board, etc.

I just wondered if anyone had any miracle cure for the wandering mind?

We have a cocker spanial who is afraid of storms and afraid of the dark! He is up every night severa
Even with a night light he still gets afraid of the dark and I have to get up and pet him and tell him it is okay, et cetera. He will finally settle and go back to sleep, but will do it again throughout the night. I let him sleep in my room thinking it would help..but it didnt. He is just a big baby, so we love him and try to make him feel as safe as we can. If we have to deal with thunderstorms and the dark we are in for a long night!!
I type the letter "l" in IT and the word cholelithiasis is my word selected?Why?
I want to get rid of this. Entered left again but it is still giving me cholelithiasis as the only word option to select from.

This is why I find this program crazy. Everytime I sit down for the day, there is a whole new experience with it!!! I have to stop and think before each word!!!
I've got my fingers crossed; makes it hard to type!nm
No, you don't type directly into ES. You type in Word -
or whatever their platform is, just like you did with your tapes.

Then you do your line count in Word or the platform.
That only tells the grammar checker to flag spaces. Word does not auto space.
I meant bought. Hard to type and listen to the music at the same time.
I would not; most of the time those type files, although not usually hard medical terms, take lots l
to type and are very difficult as it is hard to hear with background noise, different speakers, usually no macros, etc. I think they are worth more pay, not less. I also get paid by the word at 0.008 and had figured mine to be about 0.09/line as well in the past. stick with where you are.

EXText word client blank screen everytime I give ok in DIS screen
Thanks your suggestion was very valuable. At a specified time (which the technical side say, when the net speed is very good), it is working without a problem at all (whereas this was half working and half not working before even at this time), but other times, still the same problem exists.

Actually the blank screen comes every time I give "ok" in the DIS screen (patient details info screen).
type word, then alt-C


What type of word is umm, ahh, etc.?
What is the technical name for such sound phrases, and where can I get a list of them?
Do you have a word you can never type correctly

Mine is "initiated."  It makes me nuts.  In 20 years, I have never typed that word correctly and I keep forgetting the expansions I develop for it.

What are your least favorite terms to type?

Shorthand ? When I type the word I the

first letter in the next word is capped.   There is no period so don't know why it caps.  Anyone know how to fix it. I'm new to ShortHand and I really HATE it.   My company offers a short class in it, but they want me to have more experience with it before I take the class. 

type it as 1 word midphalanx..nm
I meant "One space or two", not "l space or two" nm
It is like Word in a lot of ways, with the same type of AutoCorrect. sm
But you have an ADT utility to select the patient demographics for the report you are doing. Actually very nice. I enjoyed DQS while I was on it.
If a company has you type on straight Word..
is there any way to put your own Expander software with that and if so, what is recommended.  I have always had the company supply the software including expanders, but wondered if there is a way to use these in Microsoft Word.  Thanks for any help!!!
How many WPM do you type with auto corrects/word expander?

I have never tested my speed using my Expander and have no idea how many WPM I type.  I became a certified master typist last year at over 100 WPM without my expander.  I've been doing this for six years.

I'm really curious what the average is with an expander.  TIA.

Type whatever word/phrase, bold, highlight, sm--
select Autocorrect, add.
Question for all who type on a Word-based platform.
Does anyone else use F3 to go from expansion to expansion?  For instance, I have gent that expands to gentleman, then I hit F3 to go to gentamicin, F3 again to go to Gastroenterology, etc., etc.  My question is this:  I am typing on ExText, and I have been making these entries, but in the morning when I turn the computer on they are all gone and I have to start over again.  In ChartScript they "stick" and in ExText they don't.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to get them to stay?  TIA for any suggestions anyone may have. 
I used Stedman's when working in Meditech, but I would type in Word and
copy to Meditech. 
Is there any way to type in microsoft word and then get the document into wordperfect?
open a word document, under help type in auto text--sm
and you can learn how to create, save, delete, edit entries.
Word will not correct two letters in caps. You must type a third letter for
that feature to kick in. You need to practice letting up on the Shift key sooner or you need a macro to go through your document to fix all of those instances.

Word 2000 and later does not cap after colons or numbers followed by punctuation even if you have that option turned on in Tools. You can use the change case command of Shift + F3 immediately after typing the first word to get a cap. I use Instant Text and there's a feature in that program that automatically fixes the cap issue in Word. Otherwise, you need a macro to go through the document and change that as well.

Cumbersome is a good word here to describe Meditech. The designer obviously doesn't type.

I'm going to type an acct at home for local group. What is a good word expander for

things to know on doing tapes from an office?  Is it best just to give them a disk and let them print it out at the office like they want to? 

Anybody doing an acct like this?  Thanks.

If it rains hard, the wind blows hard and there are trees
nearby, it snows heavily it will mess up the signal.  The speed is not constant, sometimes as slow as dial-up, but at least still connected.  Many companies will not allow satellite. 
So, you think it is okay for hard-working MTs to earn 7-8 cpl for their hard work?? nm
don't type double spaces. Type single. Then no one will be cheated.
That's what I was afraid you were going to say.
