Just a guess. Or print it, fill it out and fax it to her.
I would send a copy of it to my supervisor and let her/him handle
it from there.
CC... mind if I copy this verbatim and send as well?

This could have been a story of My Life in a nutshell.


 


I would just supply one digital copy, either send the work back
via an FTP site or email attachment or whatever, or keep addending to a CD, but let them keep their own archives. And why can't they print when you deliver the CD or the work in digital format? I don't do any printing at all. Everything goes back digital and they keep their own copies. Once I bill for the month, everything gets deleted, as it should be under HIPAA.

Yes, I have the paystub from the first check. sm

It has a physical address and such on that.  She isn't at that address though as it is just a business address and she lives somewhere else.  (not wanting to say more at this point, if I have to take this further I will definitely warn people about her by name and company!)  I have EVERY last email she ever sent me, even where she sent me test files so I have all the documentation I would ever need to take this all the way to court if I have to.  She owes me over $500 at this point for 2 weeks of work... I worked LONG hours to get whatever she wanted back in the TAT she requested. 


 I feel stu*pid now for working so hard.  I am new to the industry, just under a year, and wanted to do 110% to get the experience and another good reference, now that is all shot.  Not only am I going to have to fight to get paid, but I can't use her as a reference because of how she terminated our arrangement. 


If you look in IPAY at the paystub and check it looks different than the other ones. I also talked t
It is in my IPAY, too, but check your bank, there is no deposit made.
That is "web site" in post above. Also, Auto Copy add-on for Firefox will automatically copy
Auto Copy add-on for Firefox AUTOMATICALLY copies what you select (highlight) on a web site to the clipboard.

Then you can paste it in a document.

It just saves the step of right clicking and then clicking on "copy" to put something on the clipboard. Just select it, and it is on the clipboard.

It only works only on web sites-- only copies stuff you select on web sites, i.e. not in other documents.
How do you copy your SH file to text - do you copy each dictionary separately? nm

Our latest cat did that...

Not drink out of the toilet, but about a year ago, she disappeared.  She's inside 100% of the time, so she wasn't hard to find, but she was pulling back the blankets on the bed and hiding under all the covers.  Sure enough, she was sick and had to be put on antibiotics.  I'm sure she would have died if we hadn't taken her to the vet. I also had another cat quite awhile ago that hid whenever he got sick.


I hope your kitty comes home!  My husband said that when he was young, they had a cat that would roam and be gone for long stretches of time, but he always came home.


Actually, we have to keep up with the latest
technology, medical terms, etcetera, as well. We do not just go to school and learn everything at once. Things in medicine change often. Plus there are a million things you will learn throughout your career in this field as you go. It is a constant learning experience for both new and seasoned MTs.

Personally, if money were not an object like you said, I would spend my free time relaxing and enjoying being a new mom. If money is not an object, why find something to give yourself even more work? They are only babies once and will be grown in the blink of an eye...enjoy the time you have.

The latest with Keystrokes

New to this site.  Read something a while ago about Keystrokes not hiring.  Does anyone know anything about them now?  How are they to work for and how do they pay?  Thanks for any information, good, bad or ugly.


Did you see the latest picture of her (sm)

possibly pregnant, reading the junk magazines while going through the grocery store line?


So very, very few good or talented actors these days.  Give me Jerry Lewis or Bill Murray any day.  And actresses?  I can't even list any I like anymore besides Marily Monroe. 


the latest story

another MT friend of mine sent me this email


 My friend's daughter works in a dermatology office.  They are opening a new additional office.  They determined that with the opening of a new office, it was far better to now buy a system for transcribing their own documents and it also allows doctor to input the codes for billing.  So, they no longer need their Transcriptionist or their coder.  Their coder is going to do other duties at the office and their home transciptionist is SOL. 


So-if they had not opened a new office, they would not of put out for the money, but with the new additional office, this system will be taking care of the 2 jobs above for both offices.  Doctor was most definitely considering sending all of this kind of work to India, as he is from India, but when the American office manager found this out, she put a stop to it immediately.  So-that is my horror story for the week that makes me have even more knots in my stomach. 

I'm on their latest upgrade right now..sm..
so it's still buggy. I origiinally bought it in December of 2005. That version was worse than the upgrade I installed Saturday. I won't bother uninstalling and reinstalling after reading your email. Thanks for writing.
I've tried ByteScribe and ExpressScribe and the sound isn't as clear on them, especially when you slow down or fast forward so I'll either stick with StartStop and not use the hot keys or I'll try an external sound card for my laptop with the ByteScribe WavPlayer. I've tried the Turtle Beach Audio and that helped make things louder but it didn't help with the slow down and speed up sound clarity.
Is there anyway you can go back to the original version? If you have the original installtion CD, I would think you could. I don't since I bought it originally in Dec. 2005. Thanks again for writing.
Stedman's does the same thing. With the latest

electronic word books, you can only download 2 times.  I have 2 computers and I download to both, in case something happens I have a backup.  I also tend to have computer issues for some reason and when I try to do a reinstall of the OS it doesn't keep my Stedman's.  Since I can only download twice that makes me not able to use it.   I tried to company all Stedmans to a BUS drive in case I had to restall again, but it won't work and you can't copy from one computer to another, you have to have the original disk.    


I'm not thrilled with it, but I don't think they are doing anything illegal. 


The latest InScribe from Emdat sm
Will work with my USB Infinity pedal as I have just set it up. It will also run with InstanText. QUITE the upgrade from the Emdat I tried to use about 6 or 7 yrs ago I can tell you that. It is MUCH better, user friendly and I think I'll be more productive on it.


doggone, looks like it's the latest version now
I had the same problem, thanks for posting the link. But I downloaded it and it was v.4.15 again! I downloaded Switch and that won't work either.

It's beginning to look a lot like they don't WANT it to work with .dss anymore!
The Latest Word...found it!
It's published by Elsevier. To find the link, just Google The Latest Word. It's only a couple of hits down the search results list. I wasn't able to copy the web site address, since it came in as an RSS feed (ignorant about that). But it's at www.elsevier.something.

In some cases, I think religion is just their latest addiction.
Didn't Stephen Baldwin used to have substance abuse issues? Seems like some of these people just trade in the substance for religion and pursue it with the same enthusiasm.

Oh, like your latest joke wasn't gross
on the Comedy board!

LOL.
Lately, every week I'm having a techie problem. My latest

is the sound on my computer cuts out for no reason. I just started doing VR this week and the sound disappears. It's not just the program. It's the whole computer. If I reboot, it's back.


I also noticed that, although the work load is heavy, I'm out of work around the same time every day for about an hour or two.  Then I'm okay for the rest of the day.


Please don't tell me it's my computer. I can't afford another one at this time of the year.


Please don't tell me it's my sound card...the computer is only 1-1/2 years old.


I have 512 MB RAM. Do you think this is too little for VR? It never happened when I was doing regular transcribing.


Any ideas?


Thanks,S


The latest version sent to me in a link by company is 4.91.309 (must have just come out) sm
I haven't been told anything specific as far as the pedal. All I know is that the new version of InScribe does not support an outside player such as Express Scribe, Gearplayer, etc., and plays directly from the program itself.

From what I can tell, it either will use a regular USB pedal, or it may require a specific pedal just for InScribe that works identical to the "F" keys. I'm just not sure if there is really a difference in the two and was hoping someone would be able to help. The regular USB pedal is cheaper than the specific one I found for InScribe.

Apparently the tech folks at EMDAT are off today, as no one has answered my e-mail regarding this.

Thanks.
The latest version of ES does work with Vista.

On this tight budget, I do not have cable. What is the latest on Katrina?
The message boards have disintegrated into name calling and absurdity.  My local stations are not running any news.  What is going on down in New Orleans?  It is 5:41 PST here and I have just read on a message board they are predicting 10,000 deaths?  Surely this is not so
AAMT site is under contruction. Maybe the latest issue will
Haha
Follow link to latest AAMT funny

and see what they are up to now.  I think Brenda H. is trying to get the doctors to talk more plainly so the off-shore accounts can understand them better.  HA - HA.


Be sure to look at very bottom of the article.  For more information please check out AAMT.........  What a bunch of garbage.  While the context of the article is true, it is the source of the article that is a fake ...... Good Grief.

Latest Instant Text revision 541 and MS Word

Has anyone noticed Word save and opening of new documents slow down since upgrading to IT Revision 541 or is it just me?  I tried other things, such as clean disc, defrag, ran System File Check for Windows XP, and Registry Cleaner.  These things helped speed up everything on my computer except Word, which would still be very slow to save and open a new document.


 


I uninstalled IT and reinstalled the older version and now Word is back to normal speed.  Has anyone else experienced a slow down with the revision or is it just me?  I also didnít like how the new version linked with spelling and grammar check window in Word.


 


It's probably just me.  I'm always having weird problems.  I'm using Word 2002 (XP) by the way.

According to the latest Plexus journal entitled "Planning Your exit" ....
even editing may soon be a thing of the past. I don't have the journal, but I have heard about at least one article making the point that, even though the unedited reports produced by physicians using VR are atrocious, the quality (or lack thereof) is beginning to be acceptable anyway with seemingly no concern about the how the poor quality of these reports might impact patient safety or quality of health care. The article makes the observation that this trend may be the harbinger of the death of our profession, hence the title, "Planning Your Exit." Anyone have the journal and, if so, can you share more of what it has to say?
GearPlayer 4 plays .sri files. That the latest version, and it is great! nm

I have a copy
I have a AAMT BOS 2nd edition with CD. It is in good condition and has two highlighted passages. Email me if interested.
If you do need a copy of XP Pro...
Try Newegg. You can purchase software that system builders would buy. It's the same thing you'd find at any major store, without the pretty box. I just bought XP home edition for about $90. It came in a bubble envelope with a manual and all the appropriate documentation and license key. I looked quickly on Newegg and saw XP Pro for $139. You can also ask for XP Pro to be installed on your new laptop from the company you are buying it from.
any way I can get a copy of it
I would love to have a copy of that.....got some friends who are newbies and I would also like to refresh my memory!
I'd like a copy too please....
if you wouldn't mind emailing me one.  Grazi!!!
Can't help copy, BUT
Will you own all the entries you put on the hospital's server? Make sure you can copy your dictionary each day or two and take it home with you. Heavy use of Expanders is so new that there aren't a lot of horror stories being told yet by people whose incomes dropped drastically when they lost their jobs because with them they also lost the personalized dictionaries they spent years developing. But they will be.
Need to get a copy of BOS - 2 or 3,
depending on what your company/client uses. In that there is a list of dangerous abbreviations that are not to be used.
I think you actually have to have a copy,
but you can check with the IRS to be absolutely sure.
