I use Shorthand for Windows and love it. I have found it works well with most every program. SM

I have used with Word and Word Perfect.  I have used it with Meditech and Cerner.  I have used it with RadNet and StarNavigator for Radiology.  I can use it with my email applications and on the internet if I choose.  If the Expander is open and running, you can use it with any and every window program you use.

I was really simple to learn to use too.  Very user friendly.

Shorthand works with every program, it works outside the program you use, does not interfere.
You can use Shorthand in ANY program, it works outside your program
I have never found a platform it did not work with and I have worked on several different versions of Meditech. Just start using it.
You should not be having that problem, Shorthand works "ouside any program." Contact Shorthan
PRD is a DOS program. I don't think it work with Word, a Window's program.
SpeedType and Shorthand are the exact same program. Shorthand is lots cheaper and also has a trial.
Shorthand and SpeedType are exact same program. Shorthand will cost you lots less.
you can import your autocorrect into Shorthand.
It is in the Shorthand program.
Open ShortHand and click on help. 
It's a really good program. I use Shorthand with it.
Instant Text also works
Shorthand program with Citrex

I believe that Instant Text will work and it is an awesome program!  I have been using it for about 7 years, really helps production and more.

Shorthand program question

I am using the trial version of the ShortHand program from pcshorthand.com.   I have some long entries in there and it seems to take forever for it to go into my report.  I sit and watch each sentence come onto the screen.  Is there a better shorthand program?  Where it just instantly pastes the entire text "BAM" instantly without having to stop and wait?

Also, maybe it just does it like this because it is a trial version????


shorthand program/bayscribe
I am having problems with this too. Did anyone resolve this? I turned of teh Bayscribe player, but how do you get ShortHand to start working>
Yep, in Shorthand & SpeedType since they are the same program.
Is Shorthand a "separate" program/not DQS?
It sounds that way, but just checking.  Thanks.
Need Macro program for Works!

I am about to start a job as an IC for the first time.  I thought the company provided a macro program, but now it seems they don't.  I can't be productive without one, but I have never had to purchase one on my own, having used company-supplied programs for the previous 12 years.  Does anyone know a program that will work in Microsoft Works that has macros that will expand with the spacebar?  I need something easy to understand and as inexpensive as possible but that will hold maybe 2,000-3,000 shortcuts!   Thanks!

Re: Need Macro program for Works!
Thanks so much!
Are you using Autotext, too? Macros? Why not get a program like Shorthand for your
Is there a way to copy Shorthand program from one computer
to another when I do not have the disk anymore?  Any help appreciated.  I recently bought a new computer and am looking to install my ShortHand on that computer.
Shorthand is great short cut program,
I wish you the best.
SpeedType and Shorthand are the exact same program.
SpeedType is just a different brand name and costs a whole lot more.

You cannot import into AutoText. You can copy your spf dictionary into Word and then you'll have to create the AutoText entries one by one.
Save yourself some $$ - Speedtype and Shorthand are the exact same program.
Get a decent word expansion program like PRD or Shorthand sm
autocorrect is very limited.  If you want to make money, your really need a good expander.
SpeedType and Shorthand are the exact same program. Smartype only
works in MS Word.
Shorthand and Speedtype are the exact same program, just sold
under different brand names. ShortHand does have a trial version.
Instant Text works with Meditech and most any other program.

It will count everything if you go in the settings and program it to. Good program!
Sylcount is an awesome and accurate counting program also. That will count everything if you "tell it to".
You do need a FTP program though so you can get your work - sm
forgot about that, but that is not a large expenditure, think I paid $30 for mine though that was about 8 years ago (I do web work to for my old, old job now and then).
Because DOS was much faster program to work in
and was easier to do everything. Windows based operations are much slower.
I want to work on escription program
what companies use it? TIA
Would a program like LikeMeIn work for you?

If this a problem on a work program then they should have a (sm)
Technical support person for your company contact you and that person should be able to remote into your PC and fix what the problem is. You shouldn't have to go spend money to get this fixed.

I know that is what my company does and if they can find no remedy then and only then would I take it in for service.
Yes, any AV will work with any internet program.
look up "Shared Work" Program...
for NYS, however, I believe your employer has to sign up for this particular benefit, and good luck with that one, eh? I know someone who worked like this because work was so low whenever he did not work a full week/so many hours, he got unemployment. Sounded great to me so I checked into it but did not qualify...

wouldn't it be a great option, especially for those companies who do not guarantee full-time hours (yet who expect you to commit your life and soul to them).

I would be interested to learn if anyone else knows about this or does this?
my 2nd acct is still on the Cottage program...I work for

PRD is a dos-based program, will not work in Word.
It is a great program, wish it would, but you might have to look at something like Shorthand. Same with Stedman's. It is a Windows installation, not a copy/paste like the old dos programs (WP, etc.)
Any program will work if you stick with it and it's NOT what you're doing right now. nm

Any Lotus Notes users? How does this program work? Thanks!
Thanks for the info.
Speedtype is also the exact same program as Shorthand, but Speedtype is a lot more expensive.
SpeedType AND ShortHand both come with a converter file that will import your AutoCorrect entries to either program. You do not have to pay Betsy to do that unless you flat can't figure out how to do it. It's not at all hard to do. Productivity Talk has posts that even tell you how to do it -- for FREE.
There's a tutorial in the program and yes you do create expansions while you work. Love it! nm
Will the Stedman's work with that version of Word? You buy the basic program and then
Company requested not downloading Vista as it will not work with our program.
