It's not a MEDICAL spellchecker. You have to convince them to add the medical spellchecker.
unless you feel like adding 10,000 medical terms on your own time LOL
Please let us know if your software is compatible with Vista and thank you.

It seems that companies would hurry up and get compatible with Vista, as they would have more choice in MT's in their hiring process.

Vista is still not compatible with most platforms currently.
I have yet to see a platform compatible with MAC and if you look at the job ads when listing needed equipment they all say PC. 
Stedman's is compatible with Vista. I use it. nm
stedman's 8 is compatible with VISTA. nm
EditScript8 is VISTA compatible
I have them both on my other computer. I'm not sure EditScript is VISTA compatible, though.

Hope that helps :-)
Accordign to Microsoft, it is XP and Vista compatible.
Is Vista and Lotus Notes compatible?

I just had Lotus Notes installed on my PC from my company. If I upgrade to Vista, will I have to get them to re-install it and is it even compatible?



Best Spell Checker compatible with Vista?
I just bought a new Sony Vaio and I was wondering if anyone could recommend a spell checker that was compatible with Vista for Word 2007.  Are there any out there that are good?
Many companys don't have their stuff compatible with Vista yet. Keep your old machine
Vista & Stedman SpellChecker-How do you
Ok, I have found just one more program that isn't wanting to work with Vista.  How do you all get Stedmans SpellChecker to work with Vista?  Every time I try to install it, it just stops the install.  Thanks for any help 
Which Spellchecker works with Vista?

Can anyone tell me which medical spellchecker works with Vista?  I have Stedmans, but it does not work with Vista.  Thanks

Oops..sorry your right. I forgot that. I specifically ordered my Windows XP as Vista is compatible w

Just about every computer has Vista now but I went through Dell and found the computer I wanted with Windows XP and then went into ebay and got it $400 cheaper than what Dell was going to charge..The one downfall, it didnt have Office Word etc.. installed so I had to buy that but I still came out ahead.

FYI Blew motherboard. Need new puter. Was told not to get Vista as not compatible with work program
And there is a medical spellchecker
at most places (yes, I've worked places there was not and every medical term had to be added meticulously to the regular spellchecker. I've also worked places where the spellchecker had many, many errors in it, so keep that possibility in mind. Be ever so careful about adding terms, be they MD names or new drugs or whatever.

Use a program like ShortHand to help you with words you chronically misspell and common phrases, even if they are just English phrases. There are tricks. For instance, type ecoli and have it change to E. coli. But have some special ending (I use j) to add to it to make it spell out this tricky bacteria in full, properly capitalized. Do you think I remember each time the right way to type HER-2/neu ? No, I just type h2n and the above pops up for me. Plenty of tricks available for the trickiest terms.
medical spellchecker
how many of you use a medical spellchecker?  I was wanting to purchase one.  Do you have any suggestions as to what's the best kind to purchase?
Do you have the medical dictionary or just the spellchecker? I'm
curious about the electronic dictionary.  Thanks.
Need Medical Spellchecker and Word.
Anyone know where I can find an affordable medical spellchecker and also an affordable copy of MS Word 2000 or 2003?  Thanks :-)
Problems with medical spellchecker

Not sure but it could possibly be that your version of Word is not compatible with your spellchecking program.  I recently had to reinstall my Stedmans and from what I recall, I did not see the version of Word listed that you were referring to in your post.  You might want to call Stedmans or whomever you have your spellchecking software through and check with them.

Electronic medical spellchecker

Can anyone tell me the best electronic medical spellchecker on the market and where I can buy it? Starting a new account and it is required to have.




Medical Spellchecker Question

The other day a technician (from the doctor's office that I work for) was in my computer fixing a problem I had.  The next thing I know, my medical spellchecker is nowhere to be found.  He insists he didn't delete it.  Has this happened to anyone else?  Any idea if it's still in my computer somewhere or how you could tell.  I did a simple search but came up empty.  Needless to say I'm not very happy. 

medical spellchecker software

I know this has been asked numerous times, but I just updated computers and had Stedmans medical spellcheck 2005.  When I called them to activate it on my new computer (I figured they wouldn't do it, it being so old) they told me it doesn't support MS Word 2007 anyway, and it will cost $99 to upgrade to that version.  My question is, what medicl spellcheck does anyone recommend for me that isn't so expensive but is a very good medical spellcheck. Since that is what you all do for a living I wanted to get some opinions.  Thanks very much.

DocQscribe Platform and Medical Spellchecker.
I absolutely hate the spell check on DocQScribe and wondered if any one knows if it is possible to get another spell checker to work with it. I have Sylvan Software's Medical Spell Checker and love it in Word. I also have their Shortcut word Expander and that works in the platform automatically. It would make my life so much easier if I could get the spell checker to work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
DocQscribe Platform and Medical Spellchecker.
Does anyone know if it is possible to get a different spellchecker to work with DocQscribe? I have one from Sylvan Software that I love and I hate the one in DQS. I also have Sylvan's Shortcut word Expander and that works automatically with DQS.
Looking for a good medical spellchecker that doesn't cost as much?

Is everyone just using spellex or stedmans or are there lower cost alternatives? 

How did you find them in the first place?  Just curious because I don't want a cheaper product to act cheap also.

Any ideas?


Don't need a medical dictionary, but you should have the Stedman's spellchecker loaded. Can

Spellex medical spellchecker and line count software

Does anyone use this program.  Is it any good. I have abacus right now that I have had for about 8 or 9 years and I really like it but I just upgraded to Word 2007 and I don't like the way it does the new count. It is a stand alone now instead of working inside Word and it does not seem to be as accurate and function as well.  Also I have Dorlands electronic medical spellchecker and I really like it because it will correct things automatically that I misspell and stuff and it words directly in Word but it is not compatible with Word 2007.  Does anyone have any advice on this or any software that is good and works with Word 2007? 


Medical ?, tongue swelling...any ideas...Help

My husband (44) woke up in the middle of the night last night with his tongue swollen and hard.  It woke him up because it started to close up his throat and he is a mouth breather and could not breath.  He immediately took a Benadryl but was afraid to go to sleep.  He did eventually go back to sleep but I was awake every 30 minutes checking to see if he was breathing.  The left side of his face was also somewhat swollen.  He could not think of anything different that he ingested or came in contact with or any different activity.  This morning his tongue is still slightly swollen but better.  This really has me worried.  You have to understand first that mh DH is somewhat of a hypochondriac and is always afraid he has something wrong with him.  This was just so strange and out of the blue that not only he is worried but so am I.

All this comes after attending wake services of a friend's husband (age 45).  She now has two boys to raise on her own.  Just makes you stop and think.


Everytime you re-load Word you need to re-load Stedmans medical spellchecker.
I would buy new a Dorland's Medical Dictionary, Stedmans Medical and Surgical Equipment...SM

and Tessier's The Surgical Word Book, 3rd edition.  Books you could buy used I would say would be Stedman's Pathology and Lab Medicine and Cardiology/Pulmonary word book.  These are all the books I use the most during my day.  You could buy other speciality word books as you need them and could probably go used with those.

I wouldn't bother with buying a drug book, new editions come out every year and I just stick to the FDA website and RXList as my drug references.

Also FYI, not a book, but I use my Stedman's Electronic Medical Dictationary a lot.  It's easier to open the program than it is to pick up a huge 30-pound dictionary.

They are not compatible. nm.
Sorry, they are compatible.
Medical Transcription In The Era Of Electronic Medical Records
EMR has revolutionized the healthcare industry in recent times. Many experts felt that EMR & Voice Recognition would totally replace Medical Transcription - however; the industry soon realized that transcription has certain advantages over point & click charting and many physicians preferred to dictate notes rather than document the data at the point of care themselves.
It's very compatible with Word, and quite
similar to Autotext/Autocorrect.  That's why I like it better than IT.  Download the free 3-day trial offer to see how you like it.
SmartType compatible with DQS
Has anyone had any luck getting SmartType to work with MQ DQS?
No you don't have to buy it. If you don't have a compatible player - sm
that can play "PlayAll" files then they will supply the PlayAll XTRA player, though they do ask you send them a CD for it I believe. They supply the WP DOS 5.1, Stedman's Spellcheck via email. That is why I said don't let the question throw you, you don't have to buy anything.....unless you are new of course, then you will need a footpedal. Bytescribe is compatible with the sound files and that is what I use, I also have a copy of the PlayAll which I use to pull up the file information I need to transcribe, but it won't work if you have Bytescribe on your computer. I love my Bytescribe so it stays. They will train in in the use of WP 5.1 and they hire newbies too. I started to work for them with 2 months of experience....it will be 4 years in May since I began working for them. As I said good people, I appreciate them as much as they appreciate me.
Won't work, new IT Pro V is now compatible with

I don't know if Stedman's is compatible or not, but it
is considered the best and the most widely used I believe. 
Is Shorthand not compatible?

Is Escription 3 compatible with

I have MS Word 2002 and I know that it is not compatible with Escription 8 which is what I am going to have to start using Monday.  I have a Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 disk that came with my laptop.  So....my question is.....will MS Word 2007 Home and Student work with Escription 8?    My next question is do I need to uninstall my MS Word 2002 before I install MS Word 2007 or will the Word 2007 overwrite the 2002?  Any help with this would be wonderful

I mean Escription 8 compatible with



Are wav pedals compatible with all programs?
I'm looking to invest in one since I see a lot of jobs require you to have one.  I was wondering if there was a brand out there that is compatible with most programs.  I see some ads say they must have the Start-Stop one and so on.  Any information on this would be greatly appreciated. 
Thank you! Do you know if DocQscribe is compatible w/ satellite? nm
.dss files are not compatible with wav players--sm
They need to be *converted* for WAV players to be able to play them. your wav player may have a conversion tool within it. If it has a *tool* button, open that. It will not automatically play them and saving your files in Word will not convert them to wav files. you have to do that manually. good luck.
