as this one has completely gone to the dogs, rarely does anyone go to the other boards that we are constantly being directed to, that is why the main board was so much fun, now it seems there is a place for everything but not here, I will probably be mosing on too. See ya

Agree, verbatim transcription equals poor quality transcription.
search through this board first
Look for "Snow Bunny" and read everything you can that pertains to "voice recognition," VR (voice recognition), SR (speech recognition), or "Dragon NaturallySpeaking.: If you still have questions after that, I'll answer what I can.
Do a search on this board. SM
If I remember correctly, this company has a habit of not paying.
Search for her name on this board s/m
I would do a search with her name on this board.  If I remember correctly, she is known for nonpayment, please double check before getting involved.
Search company board. sm
Apparently they outsource and have been banned from posting here. Lots of bad reviews, too.
do a search on Main Board
Search thru the Company board. They're all bad! nm
Need help on technical board - doing search on MSWord. tks.
Use the Post a New Message box next to the Search box, top of board. nm
How do you do a search on this board - my topic will never come up and I know I have read about it
do a search on OFFSHORING on Main Board
You may want to check the company board and do a search
I think you can do better - and nationals can be great to work for, don't know who hires newbies, though. Good Luck!
go to Company Board, go to Search For: box (not google box),
Search the archives and check the Company board
try a search on company board-lots of info there
Company Board, go down to MTstar Search Box (not Google)
Search on the Companies or New Student board for course info. Jobs are available all over the US and
That's a good question for the Company board or search the archives.
Does anyone find the search feature on this board doesn't work right?
I can't ever seem to find the old posts that I know are there by using the search feature.  Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?
It's MDI in Maryland. Plenty of posts on a Company board search. nm
If you so a search on this board you'll find lots of info.

Basically, you've got it right. However, voice files can be large and email may reject large file attachments. Also, there's the security aspect that you didn't mention. Basically, the voice file and finished document need to be encrypted to be secure.

You said you don't have the time/didn't take the time to do the research. Lots of people have and have shared their findings time and again on this board. I, for one, am not willing to reinvent the wheel every time someone is looking for this information but doesn't want to take the time to do the legwork. No offense meant but please do take the time to educate yourself. If you really don't have the time or don't want to take that time, then be prepared to pay for that information in the form of a consultant.

Found google icon by search bar onGab board
Do an archive search on this board and you'll find lots of info. NM
Lots of recent posts if you do a Company Board search. Good luck! nm
If you search the posts, I think the Company board, you will find that the monies paid to AAMT

for CMT/RMT cerifications are being used to offer "India" rates to workers in India to test for their CMT/RMT cerifications. I REFUSE TO BELONG TO SAID ORGANIZATION AND I WILL NOT CONTRIBUTE MY HARD-EARNED FUNDS TO HELPING INDIANS GET CREDENTIALED.

I agree-LOVE ebay. Use "genuine" or "original" in your search and get brand name ones!-n
go to the medical transcription board if you...sm

Go to the medical transcription board/forum if you are so unhappy with the multiple subjects discussed on the Main Board....and FYI - ALL MAIN boards at all forum sites are for open discussions on any topic.

Get with the program or leave the room........

FYI - this is a medical transcription board,
Yer preachin' to the wrong congregation.
Thread on Jax Transcription is actually on the company board and not deleted.
Apparently no one has any information, just speculation.
Just do a search and read the posts. There are plenty of posts about OSI on this board. nm.
I agree - Do it for all the transcription companies...
or don't do it at all...

I agree...I am a transcription supervisor
and my salary is in the mid 30's. I supervise many MTs who earn twice my income.
I agree 1000%. How funny you do transcription according to BOS
and a doctor reads it and says WTF? I didn't say that! But, but my QA person wants me to transcribe according to BOS guidelines so it is not up to the doctor's wants or needs. It is a HUGE CROCK!
I agree with this article. All transcription should be based on minutes
I agree, this board does not belong to her,
after all it is a 'world help board!'H

Had she really in mind to help the newbies, she would have formulated it in a different way.

It is always the tone that makes the music.
Okay Sandra! We all agree you need to be removed from the board.
Hurting peoples feelings are uncalled for and just plain rude. You are a troll. You are very sad sad person who has no social graces whatsoever.
I agree, you need to a lot of research. I would start with the job seeker's board and see who S

is advertising and research the companies that seem to have the best to offer and find out if they truly are the ones with the best to offer.  In this business, there are a lot more considerations when looking for a job than just cents per line.

Good Luck!

I agree. And as someone posted on another board here, it's hard to care about it when the dictat
Being these are pretty darn important documents, it's equally as important for us to get it right as it is for them to slow down so we can truly actually hear what they're trying to say. It's a joint effort that often falls short on their end for whatever reason.
Agree! Board is like chatting. Work requires more brain cells.
Get ready for changes.....sm
lots of them and very quickly IF this is what is happening. Six Sigma management tends to cut the fat and thin the herd by "survival of the fittest." In other words, expect it to be harder to achieve a high quality score, incentive bonuses, quality bonuses, etc., because they will up the ante with respect to that At least that was my experience with Edix...and no, I'm not a sloppy MT barking about sour grapes. That's just the way it was.
ready or not
If new Career Step grads are not ready to work, why are so many of them getting multiple job offers? Some get four or five offers within a month of graduation. In the real world, the marketplace will determine who is ready to work and who is not. Whether or not a given MT is prepared to work is between her and her employer. AAMT is sticking its nose into an area where it is neither needed nor wanted, and they would not be doing this if there were not profit in it for them. If they want to do something for us, let's see them do something to stop the offshoring of our medical records. If they were showing real leadership on this and other substantitve issues, our salaries would not be declining. We cannot trust the AAMT.
My son was almost 4 - He will do it when he is ready.
Are you ready? lol...sm
Dogs: Neeva and Rufis.
Cats: Kurt and Vira.
Birds: Buster and Cleo.
Rat: Precious.
I know that I am in no way ready to do this on my own. Others have said I should cut out the sm
middle man and get my own accounts.  I know that I am not qualified to do that right now.  I just graduated two months ago!  I want to get at least 2-3 years experience under someone else before I go out looking for my own accounts.  I'm not ready to be responsible for everything yet.  Maybe I'm a minority, or don't have enough confidence in myself, but I'd rather be safe than sorry. 
I am ready.
I haven't done it yet, but I do have everything I need to work loaded on my laptop in case I need to evacuate for a hurricane.  Just grab the laptop, foot pedal, keyboard and go. 
Ready set go.

But seriously, folks. Let's come up with a name (something with a snappy acronym), then a Yahoo User group & a domain name, & eventually we can come up with some kind of group statement. Let's see what evolves. Who knows? Maybe we can put a dent the Association for Healthcare Documentation in India (!).
Get ready for yours to
stay the same. Most of us here have experience and we should all have accuracy. If you have worked on the platform for some time now and nothing seems to change, just gonna have to suck it up and know what the issues are, that being too many people not changing according to what the specs are.
I'm getting my yacht ready now.
I'm with you, ready to retire
but have a few years to go, like 20. My production hasn't gone up 25%, has yours? If anything it has gone down. Have you thought about Spheris? I had a job offer last year at 10 cpl, should have taken it probably.
Actually, I was ready to do this same thing - (sm)
start a petition, but I was (VERY HAPPILY!) beaten to it by a faster-thinking (and probably even madder-than-I-am) MT. GOOD WORK! Lets get this puppy ROLLING! ;D
Cheers! I'm ready for one too! nm
