Sometimes you can pull them up in the expander but not print from there.
You know what, I dont believe you unless you have every report in your expander and can pull up

normals for your hospital.

LOL! You calls 'em as you sees 'em, girl!
Love 'em or leave 'em
I don't have a real solution, but I have been known to log off of that account whenever I see this happen.  I then try to find work on one of the other accounts to which I am assigned, but there is often no other work available.  I conclude that the only choice is love 'em or leave 'em.  A private client might be nice, but that brings other headaches.
If U can't beat 'em join 'em
This is NOT the only industry that outsources and you are fooling yourselves if you think that it will stop.
POLL: Productivity gain using your expander and what expander you use.
Guess I need to make it work harder.
The shortcuts expander works with the Bayscribe expander as well.
All at the same time.
Which ones pull in the green?

Which ones are you gals/guys transcribing that you are able to do 200-300/hour?  I have condensed it down to ops and maybe radiology.  What are the most awesome expansion accounts in your opinion-copy and paste if you will!! 

Is there anybody transcribing this amount of lines on acute or multi specialty?  Specialty, a single specialty, I could believe.  Ops I can believe.  Haven't done rad so don't know.  What are the best "COPY AND PASTE" situations you know of? 

I donated, but did not get to pull from
Santas bag
I would use Pull Ups in his case, to take away...
the notion that he needs "diapers" since he is trained during the day and you don't want him to feel like he's a baby.  My DD used Pull Ups, then those big Pull Ups that are just white and made for bedwetters, and when she grew out of those we used DDAVP spray, which worked the first night. 
How do I pull up autorecover to see if it is in there?
Do you pull from the queue when you want?

So you go into the queue and grab what is at the top at that time. So if you do not feel like working one day or that morning you don't have to pull from the queue?

I need to work at a place that is flexible that I can get work when I am able to.



I bet you are about to pull your hair out with this
mess, aren't you? I do voice also and keep trying to tell people MTers are not ready to be replaced with this because I, like you, see this all too much.
You can pull up like you are lifting a
weight and also pull outward like you are working on shoulder muscles and pecs (typical gym exercise). Do about 8 reps (or more)of each every hour. Exercising these muscles is cumulative but the important thing is to be consistent, i.e. every day. It's so easy to forget for a couple of days and then the pain returns. Being MTs we need to be mindful of our bodies. Our minds are always getting a workout but our bodies seem to suffer. We need to be warriors of mind and body to be balanced and then our performance and productivity improves also.
done when leaves pull out easy...sm

takes about 30-45 minutes depending on if you're using gas versus electric!!  *S*

Parmesan sounds good too to the other poster!! 

Oh, and one more thing: MTs who don't pull their weight and
I work and I want my team to work hard as well.

Gonna pull my hair out!

I am currently working on a 20 minute dictation with an ESL who talks like a 3-year-old.  I can't even figure out where she might be from.  Words like....tweatment, twying, reawy, downwite, etc.  Plus, there is about a 2 second pause between every word!!!!!

The real kicker is that she is dictating this for another doc who I know for a fact speaks perfect English.

Sometimes I just wanna cry!!

Pull your spf files off the CD onto the desktop. sm
Now go to My Computer, look at Programs, open the ShortHand folder, open the smaller SH8 folder. Now, drag your spf files into that. Close all of that.

Now open the shorthand program like you are going to use it. Go to File at the top, open, and you will see your spf files. open the one you want to use, or any. each time you open one, there will be tab at the bottom to choose which one you want to use.
I agree . . . if you can pull that job home,
that would be your best bet.
Pull Down "View" on Toolbar.
Then hit Zoom.
Funny how they expect you to pull a
freakin rabbit out of a hat?! I'd love to say, "I don't do magic lady!"
Now watch me pull a rabbit
"MTIA strongly supports the development of a credentialed workforce."

And in case you were wondering who was going to be the certifying body...

ta DA! They have their very own handy-dandy organization right on hand to provide the test! AHDI!

But wait! Not only are they on hand, they have the EXACT same address as MTIA!

Oh, & in case you were wondering who was going to pay for all this, "MTIA acknowledges that there is a measurable cost associated with preparing for, obtaining, and maintaining the professional credentials referenced here. It is important to note that the Association is not including in this recommendation the mandate or suggestion that the responsibility for those costs be shouldered, at all or in part, by the transcription service organization/employer.

So let's see. They force MTs to become CMTs by pushing so hard for it in the industry that it becomes impossible to work without it. Next, they make the MTs pay for the certification themselves even though their facilitation of offshoring has driven wages down so far that it's hard to make a living. Finally, the fees for this certification go to an organization with an address identical to theirs...

how do you spell c-l-a-s-s a-c-t-i-o-n??

Isn't that what causes 'em to sag?
don't let 'em get to you, KB
As we teach our children, ignore it.
you tell 'em

Can you hear me clapping at this end and yelling BRAVO!!!  Right on!!!

Has anyone ever died from doing hanging indents?  I may be the first.  LET ME DO WHAT I NEED TO DO MICROSOFT!!!!!  (yes, I'm yelling). 

Cut 'em off???
It will be so worth it. After seven years at home, I pull in $100/day sm
just working around naps and early mornings before the kids get up.  I could probably do more if I wanted to at night after DH gets home, but $100 is my goal and I can usually reach that in three hours.  It's easy, go for it!
They better have SE because no way is my insurance riding on the BS they pull with no work all the
time. They can hang you out to dry with that 12,000 line deal unless you work 24/7 lately. No way does my health insurance ride of that deal.
Yes, everyone who make a donation gets to pull from Santa's Bag.
If I recall, you should be able to pull up all the supporting documents sm
to review, not just the summary page.  I always back it up by doing the old pencil, paper, calculator method just to be sure.
I hear you! I'm ready to pull my hair out!
I keep looking forward to that in hopes of a "normal" schedule.  Plus money is a big factor - I need all I can make!
When I get a new Pet, I pull out the Atlas. That's my "pet name book." :-)
I have had plenty of cats, and always name them after cities in the United States.  I have had Kansas City, Tahoe, Cocoa Beach, Tacoma, Cody, Carson City, Boulder and currently Tahoma and Houston.
Pull up some documents and count them out each way to compare. nm
Definitely get the man straightened out. Pull out your pay stubs and show him
him what part of it he doesn't understand and how you can clear it up with his so he will understand that what you do IS work. 
...do an incorrect word or even pull up something already created...nm
Instant Text will pull in whatever font you are using
in your actual document. No worries about types or sizes. You can also insert commands to bold, etc. within your entries, which makes it nice if one account wants bold/cap headings and one doesn't. I work for different hospitals and I have a separate glossary with each hospital name that I use for stuff that is unique to each hospital, i.e. facilities, doctor names, routines and normals by dictator. My MAIN glossary I keep as #1 and I add regular words, phrases, etc., that I would use regardless of hospital. Then I use the *include* feature to pull in the glossary of the hospital I am working on at the time. I love this product. Will never use another Expander again and won't have to, since it works with any windows-based application. I have carried it with me to 3 companies so far, each with a different platform, and I don't have to learn a new expansion program, worry about their IT depts. trying to convert my old expansions, etc. etc. etc.
Pull up the whole period for which transcribed...see more inside
Say July 1 was the first day and July 14 was the last day - are you able to do a date-specific count? If so, get that on the screen, hit the "Print Screen" button (above SysRq next to Scroll Lock). Then open a Word document or go to Accessories and get either Word Pad or Notebook. Do a control C, which is the Word command for copy. This will copy the whole screen shot into that new document. Go to "file" on the task bar, do a "Save as" and name it what you want, say 07012008to07142008 or something so you will be able to recognize it. This will now give you a document that you can email to their payroll period with a nice little message something to the tune of "WHAT GIVES" or other equally professional question - just kidding, but now you have proof of what your total lines were and a bargaining tool. If you can only do it 1 day at a time, you can still use the screen shot method, but you will have a lot of documents to email if it comes to that.

Be sure to question them verbally by phone first as that might clear up any confusion. If not, then you can tell them YOUR line count and ask why your figures are so different. Just a thought. Good luck!

stump 'em
I'll never forget my first day of college when the instructor wrote on the chalkboard -- panhysterosalpingooophorectomy and said "You will know what this means by the end of the day!"  This is an easy one for us now, but back then it was like "Yeah, right."  This is one of my husband's favorite words to throw at people at parties, etc. -- and he even knows the correct meaning of the term!!  I hate when people say stuff like "Where can I find a job like yours, typing at home, I could do that no problem."  They think that if they can type, they can do our jobs.  I'd like to see 'em try.....heeheehee
found 'em (sm)
did a search for clairsol, found Cheviot technology, and here they are in New Delhi. Search in these two pages for clairsol, and/or Cheviot, you will find www.clairsol.com, with an Indian name for owner.

Sure looks to me like they are in India, in some shape or form....I hope this helps you....good luck, and let us know how it goes.
Tell 'em sister....

Do you see how fast the haters come here to say "big deal."  Any one of us can have our own accounts (I have 2 of my own).  I make the same as you round about $50.00 an hour.  What a relief because I also IC for an online company making 8 cpl (round about $20.00 an hour).  We can't sit around and complain; that accomplishes nothing.

BTW, I think 5 cpl for VR is good...  In case anyone cares what I think!  I just think it would be hard for me to learn the hot keys to make it go faster, but then again maybe I'd be quicker at it (20+ years in the biz). 

Just let them drink their Hatorade and be haters all their lives!!!! 

VR funnies - 3 of 'em

Cardiolite stress test which was negative for reversible skin.

HIDA scan negative for cystic duct or common bile duct obstruction with normal feeding of the gallbladder.

Ultrasound of the abdomen demonstrated a fatty liver but no evidence of a dietitian.

It's worth it...Git 'em!
I had one customer who tried to stiff me for some work I performed. I had all the paperwork in order, all the ducks lined up, etc. It was a amount somewhere near $1400.

I didn't go the SCC route at all. I filed a lien against the woman's home for the amount owed, the filing costs, and >>monthly late charges<< that had accrued up to the point of the filing of the lien. Then I waited for about 17 months or so.

When she found out that she couldn't sell her property until the lien was settled, SHE got in contact with me. She "offered" me her personal check (nyet) to settle the debt, but with her track record, I refused and would only take cash at that point in time.

She hemmed and hawed and tried to con me again, but I didn't budge, and the lien stayed put. She finally ponied up the cash, because she had to sell the house, and it couldn't be sold until the lien was satisfied.

I did lose in that deal, however. I forgot about the lien removal filing fee, so I was out $35, but I recovered the majority of the money owed.

You may just want to check out your state's lien laws.

You tell 'em girl!

stay off the porch!  Life is what you make it!  Only you can make it happen, not the President, not the Pope, and certainly not working for a national.  Some say they make boatloads off of a national, but they are hard workers that love to stay chained to the desk with no kids, (as I've seen posted) and no LIFE!  Get a grip people!  If this gal is thriving, let her thrive.  Why call her out for that?  Why?  She should be able to voice her opinion, and no I am not the poster above, I am a different poster before anyone even starts with that! 

Good golly for you Miss Molly - you hit paydirt!      Some of us love this profession enough to make it work, and yes ma'am I've gotten my fair share and then some!  I am living the good life!   

It's a stand alone program and doesn't pull up within Word itself. nm
I get 12 cents line/pull work off their VPN, transcribe in --sm
Word and send back via their encrypted e-mail.
You're absolutely correct - they always pull that card when they have nothing else
WHAT race card did she pull? Ever? And are you just being delusional and showing who and how YOU r
Research different contracts and pull out what is applicable to your situation.
There are plenty of contracts to be find through a simple Google search. Some leg work will provide the answers you're looking for.
You shouldn't be going off on your own to pull patient charts for your own curiosity!!! nm
Give 'em the Beatles!
ALL little kids love 'em (seriously!). Give John, Paul, George & Ringo a try!
