I will pass on a TagAlong by Keytronic at price...

Posted By: sm on 2006-08-16
In Reply to: RE: Anyone know of a real light touch keyboard that is a reasonable price? - Kristie

I too was looking for a soft touch keyboard and someone on this board recommended the TagAlong by KeyTronic. I bought it and it IS a very light touch. However, I already have a Microsoft Natural which is just as light... I paid $30 for it and will send it to you for $25 and free shipping. just let me know if you are interested.

Funny you should mention Keytronic, I've been using that for years. SM
Had to toss it though, the keys were just falling apart. I had it nice and worn in! I may try some of these others that people have suggested.
The price of gasoline is reflected in the price of goods. Having said that, one item
higher, MOMENTARILY, than Walmart, does not really make a case against Walmart. You want to make Walmart a bad guy because they don't have a shopper out there matching the grocery stores' price so be it. But MOST people I know shop at Walmart for lower groceries prices AS A WHOLE, and that is what makes Walmart successful. So buy your cheaper Bounty towels at your grocery store if that makes you happy. Your grocery store HAS TO MAKE MONEY and they will get you on something else. It is the retail law. Walmart will not be successful with higher prices than the grocery store. They aim to succeed. They have been sucessful in undercutting other stores. Your Bounty towels will not bring down the Walmart empire but it may cause you to shop at your grocery store where they will charge you more on other items to stay in business. Quit the knee-jerk responses. If you don't like Walmart and don't want to shop there that's all well and good. If you don't shop there because of Bounty towels, well that's just crazy.
RUN AWAY!!!! Do not pass go, do not buy their
lousy worthless software and footpedal. They are also known as TranScam. There are complaints against them with the BBB and ripoffreport.com. Even a national parenting magazine published an article about their scam methods.

You can download Express Scribe for free to play sound files at http://www.nch.com.au/scribe/
You can purchase a footpedal online for under $50.

As for my own experience with them, I am a college grad, took a medtrans course, and have worked in MT for 8 years now. I wanted to see if what everyone said was true, so I applied with TranScam. They even pulled it on me! My test file was perfect, but Alan said I needed mentoring so I could work for him for free after I purchased the $400 program. I don't think so, dearie. I don't know how that guy lives with himself. He must be one of those masochists who thinks he's so superior to women or something.
Don't pass this up!
Did I pass?
If you don't want the job, please pass it on to me! :) nm
Thanks Jay (V?) - will pass it on too...nm

this too shall pass

Stop, take a breath and look around you.  Really think hard about what's important.  If you had to leave your home for a small and less expensive one, would it be THAT bad?  If a vehicle got repossessed, would it be the end of the world?  I have learned from age and experience just not to sweat it.  You can only do what you can do. 

Appeal the medical bills that weren't covered.  Find out from the ambulance company why they were denied payment...been there, done that.

Everybody has problems...I got stiffed out of 2 checks by my prior company, went to work for another national, been there a month, still haven't been paid, though they keep telling me it was mailed.  No pay now for nearly 3 months.  If they turn the cable off, big deal, I'll listen to the radio.  It gave me a good opportunity to clean out the fridge since there's nothing in it!!  Worry only about your health and your husband's health, stress can make you ill....and it DOES. 



or a DAY AT THE SPA pass.....nm

I will pass that one along to her, thanks!...nm
Did you pass? nm


That is so funny.... I must pass it on
Please read and pass on...

I received this via e-mail...so you know how things get started on the Internet, but if it's true, I won't be buying Pepsi anytime soon..

Don't buy Pepsi in the new can. Pepsi has a new "patriotic" can
coming out with pictures of the Empire State Building, and the
Pledge of Allegiance on them.

However, Pepsi left out two little words on the pledge,

"Under God."
Pepsi said they didn't want to offend anyone.

In that case, we don't
want to offend anyone at the Pepsi corporate office, either!

So if we don't buy any Pepsi product, they will not be offended
when they don't receive our money that has the words

"In God We Trust" on it.

I will pass this along to my hubby. He's always looking for new...
investment opportunities.

Very thoughtful of you! Thanks!
Maybe you could pass out fliers and
give your number or e-mail address, and just see what kind of response you get and go from there with setting up a meeting time. Have the first meeting at your house.
What are you smokin'? Pass it over here! :)

Please pass on the name of the company you went with s/m

You do not currently use ExText at all. What company using ExText did you leave?  TT ?

What platform are you using now. Would you mind sharing this with us.

Yep, you get the free pass, right?
Because everyone there knows your names? Bigspenders!! I knew you said were going back soon and that is what we are doing, probably in August sometime. Hubs likes to wait until it gets around 110 and he is happy. Ugh for me! I took my kids when they were younger to loads of places so now my time and even if I am up in years donít care, get assistance at the airport if I need and still go on my merry way. After I get these bills out of the way, my intention is going at least twice a year for myself- hubs can wait until that 1 trip a year to Las Vegas. Never stayed at Harrahs- saw the show there, wonderful. Wish they had the really big stars in LV like they used to - when I got to where I could afford, Elvis, Frank and the likes gone. Might go and see George Carlin, have always liked him and his wraped sense of humor. Again, hubs will be at the Rio with the all you can eat seafood buffet!
If you passed the CMT before, I'm sure you can pass it again... (sm)
especially since you have an additional 7 years of experience. Someone told me they make you listen to the dictation snippets without the use of a foot pedal. Really...that is funny. What MT would work without a foot pedal? Unless of course they were a double amputee. Sorry I'm so wordy tonight. I just got done with my shift and am a bit punch drunk at 3 am.

Anyway, the RMT is just for new graduates to test their basic skills.

Good luck with your CMT recert. I have my 2 years at the end of the month and am thinking about taking it myself.

CMT pass score

Can anyone tell me what is the score required to pass the CMT exam?

Thank you, I will pass along your kind words to him.
Thank you for taking the time to write back. It is really helpful and I appreciate your kind words.  Thank you for the prayers!  I will pass along your kind words to him.  Bless you and have a great day.
I can't pass a typing test, LOL. I am so
used to using an Expander that I can't even type a sentence without a mistake in it.
Tell him there is only ONE that is qualified to pass judgment
on you, and he's not the ONE.
For pet lovers - please pass this link on!

OUCH!!!! think I'll pass on the....nm

Tests, cannot pass typing
part and yet I have been tested (not under pressure) at 140 per minute. I failed another typing (yes, thatís right) test when I had my hands off the home keys and it all came out garbage. I do lots of lines per day in transcription but it is just me and my kitties here.
Yes, they do. If you can pass their test, you can work for them
We were all newbies at one time. There are companies that hire newbies. You just need to find them. Try the big nationals or small MTSOs with clinic notes. Or you can start out with Worker's Comp, physical therapy, chiropractors, vets, dentists or insurance, and then transition into full MT after you've finished your training and education. Try working on-site in a doctor's office or in a hospital. Once you've proved you can do the work, they'll often let you work at home. Be proactive instead of reactive.
it could be worse, pass the napkins

A couple of days ago I typed "an alert, robust meal."  Sure glad I proofread.

Petition to keep records in USA - Pass it on!

Sign petition and letters to Representatives and President.


Does that new job description pass some of your duties to others so
you can do the transcription? If not, I guess I'd have to prove to them it can't be done in the same amount of time and look for another job while I'm doing that. After all, you'll still have to look for another job to supplement the lost income at home, right? If they're not passing some of your duties on to others, their request is out of line and completely sets you up for failure. Who needs that kind of pressure in their life?

Use the pass feature to move sm
past questions that are stumping you for the moment and you will get them again after you've finished the set of questions.  Get a good night's sleep the night before, eat a good breakfast the morning of if you can.  Know your BOS and general medical terminology and you will do fine.
Some people would just rather pass blame and complain

which is FIND ANOTHER CAREER, PEOPLE! This one is going down the toilet! It's not just outsourcing - it's voice recognition too! This profession is going bubbye and all you can do is worry that Punjab knows you have a sore throat! 

That's not the problem at hand here! Learn to do something else before you're standing in the unemployment line hoping Seven Eleven is hiring!


By the way, I had to pass a written and typing test to get a job
with a national and I must have passed both parts. I have been with the same company now for five years and they must be pleased with my work. I don't hear any complaints from them. I'm certainly glad that they were willing to give me a chance to prove my handiwork because it is really very pretty.
Jackie, if you can pass Spheris' test
Good luck.
You really lose a lot of credibility when you let so much time pass -
Not jumping down your throat- those are just the facts. I would try to let it go...
Pass on the spinach. E. coli phobia. nm
Even if they pass, how can they do the work? They will make pennies an hour and
Do any of you who continuously get the reports that cherry-pickers pass over ever

This entire morning I have gotten nothing but leftovers from yesterday that no one else wanted to do.  I am at the point where I am going to start sending them back, too, so I can make a decent line count.  Whatcha think?  Then no one will be doing them and maybe the MTSO do something about it (ha ha ha ha ha). 

Didn't California pass a law that their health records
For some reason some races get a pass when they're racists.
and she's well aware of that
I just hurt my back and I want to head it off at the pass. Any suggestions? SM

I was helping my son carry a dresser up a flight of stairs and I was standing on the upper stair lifting my side up from a position above the dresser and I pulled something in my left low back and now I'm feeling it.  I new I did it because I felt the pain immediately upon lifting.  I took a handful of ibuprofen and I now have my heating pad on my back, but I wonder is there other things I can do to keep it from ruining my weekend!  I was planning on going shopping with my neices tomorrow for homecoming dresses and I can't be hobbling around the mall!


can someone please tell me how the majority of Indian MTs could ever pass the AAMT CMT exam? sm
I should not classify them as a unit, however after seeing so much garbage come in from India, I cannot fathom how they are passing the CMT examination through AAMT? In order to take a test of that capacity, one would need to comprehend the basic command of the English language. I'm just so sure the Indians would let us join their alliance or organization called "IAMT", yeah right! I'll be the first to admit, I could not pass a foreign language MT test, nor do I profess to. Sad we are being sold out by our own because we won't pay hundreds of dollars to take a test, which in reality offers us no incentive in terms of pay increases for CMT status. Just my opinion.
You don't get certified taking a program. You test & pass your
Oh, dear! Wiping tears from my eyes. I'll pass on
"touching Frank on a personal level".  ROFL!  Oh, geez!  Yeah, yeah, mind in the gutter and all that. 
You let me know when you pass a kidney stone the size of a golfball without anesthetic and THEN
we can talk about the pain of being a man vs. a woman!
AMs should not pass on info from facilities only makes that mt more nervous and more prone to errors
No, it is NOT your price to pay SM

unless you continue to allow the "price" to be extracted from you.  There are companies out there who value what you have to offer.  Sounds like it is time for a heart-to-heart with your current company regarding at least being adequately compensated for doing all the crap dictation (believe me, they KNOW you are doing it) and if that fails...MOVE ON.

I feel for you and I hope this helps but if you continue to allow yourself to be used/abused to the point it is ruining your life...sorry but don't look to me for sympathy, you DO have options and working at Mickey D's is not the only option.

Not sure what that has to do with the price of tea, but I
still recommend them.  Better than paying a big bill.   I average 8000 minutes a month and they do not complain at all. 
It's around 12 cents where I am. However, this is a red flag that they are looking and you should be looking for a new client and dump them. Believe me, they will dump you if they're thinking about it. Too bad, if you're good, good ones are hard to find but they have to find that out the hard way. The buck is top priority. Good luck to you.
Where did you get the price?
Sure am. The price of EVERYTHING is going up and
the taxes are through the roof, but my pay would go DOWN if I didn't work longer and harder to make the same amount. This really isn't good! but it's life, so we plug along and live (or at least WORK).
