Just hit Alt+Shift+left arrow on line 1 and it will go to the left margin. Otherwise,
you need to use a numbered list style to do it every time. Each version is different, but you may already have a numbered list style in yours that stays at the left margin. Just assign a keyboard shortcut to that style.
ER work seeker
I am seeking IC status also typing ERs.

Seems like since I've switched to DQS, production has gone down. Not able to use normals like before on Word... it's frustrating.

They must, just saw an ad on the job seeker board for it, but
its too bad they don't offer their current employees an opportunity to learn it, or at least announce the job internally if someone is interested.  This is the WORST company for any kind of promotion and absolutely no communication with its employees.  Once you are put on a platform or on an account you will die there cuz they won't let you move.  Team leaders suck, too. 
Job Seeker's Board.....
Radiologist Transcriptionist Needed.  Thanks. 
They have an ad on the Job Seeker's Board here. sm

just look to the left of your screen towards the top and click on "job seeker's board".  Scroll down and you will see an ad for WMX ER work.  Good company, good bennies, good people, been with them 5 years. 

Ignore the grumpies.  I don't like the search function here either.  To get more current stuff you can click on the "related" link in blue on each message or go to the top of the last few current pages of the Main board or the Company board.  Do Ctrl + F to bring up the search box .  Good luck.

Job seeker says "premium" pay for ESL - that's
There are some on the Job seeker's board sm
but many are old and quite a few are base in India
There are some on the job seeker board.
I just went up from MT to QA about 3 yrs ago.

Keystrokes has an ad on the job seeker's
board.  It pays 8 cpl.  You should check it out.  I'm not sure if they do voice recognition, but if you can avoid those companies that do, you'll make better wages on straight transcription.  Just send your resume to some of the companies that are advertising and see what pans out.  Decide a rate for yourself and don't accept anything lower than that.  Decide if you want employee status or IC/statutory. 
That is the red note on the job seeker's board.
Did anyone see the posting on the job seeker's board with
the ortho emphysis? 
Check out Job Seeker's Board

Sheri...does that mean that the job seeker's board will have sm...
companies posting jobs that off-shore transcription?  I am trying to find an office that does not off shore due to the difficulty of the reports left over for the US MT, so I need to be careful if that is the case.  Thank you!
should have read except on job seeker board
except solicitations on Job Seeker boards here for MT/coding etc. 
so true, but she could post on Job Seeker's
Board for a job not yet really available like some MTSOs do, and then give you the runaround when nothing is available. It's happened to me a couple times, now I'm suspicious about that.
Job seeker's board question please

What happened to all the jobs in the "job bank"?  There's only one in there. 

Also if you open the adds up and click on "for information" it goes to the info for that one companythat has the add, not even the right company. 

I must be a bitter MT..Check out the ad on job seeker's

Obviously Indian-based, but they want to train you to be an MT..check this part out..

Transcription is fun for the right person as it allows you to write and if you love to write, then it is an enjoyable career. Some people who do not like writing because they are not creative still enjoy this medical online profession. Even people who hate writing like this profession because it allows for working at home on a flexible schedule.

OKAY.. what planet are they from..Since when is transcription fun LOL...and I'm sure glad it lets me write whatever I want, because I just love to write..LOL and I get to use my creative ability also to write whatever I like. People who hate MT-ing just do because they hate to write and are not creative LOL. I'm sorry but this just cracked me up. I've thought a lot of things about transcription but FUN was never one of them. Lucky for me though, even though I don't like it, I get to stay at home and have a really flexible schedule..NOT.. lol...


Is this normal pay? On Job Seeker's board (sm)
They are looking for an Ortho QA Editor and after training they are paying $11.50 an hour? $11.50 an hour?  $11.50 an hour?  Why not just work in fast food?
5000 lines per day on job seeker's ...
You gotta be kidding, some say it was on before and required more than one person but why submit it as if it were a "job" offered to one? Perhaps I am "slow."
jobs on seeker board

I am wondering, are most of the jobs at http://forum.mtstars.com/seeker/ for at-home positions? As opposed to working on site?


The job seeker's board has a lot of local jobs
advertised all over the country. I don't see her making that kind of money as a home-based MT, but she would not have travel expenses, etc. Good luck.
I believe they are posted on "Job Seeker's Board"
CHS Acct Mgr posting on job seeker's board
I have a sneaking suspicion that this is Ascend.  If anyone finds out what company this is, please let us know!
Search the Job Seeker's and Company boards. Also mtjobs.com...nm
There's a link to post resumes on the Job Seeker's board. nm
I agree, you need to a lot of research. I would start with the job seeker's board and see who S

is advertising and research the companies that seem to have the best to offer and find out if they truly are the ones with the best to offer.  In this business, there are a lot more considerations when looking for a job than just cents per line.

Good Luck!

Post about Companys on the Company board, post job ads on the Job Seeker board
Not right now as seems everyone has left
due to the line counting rip off issue.  Otherwise do run out of work tons of times.
That why you left?
you left out one

>>>How darn hard it is to quit.  I have tried everything.  Patches, gum, Wellbutrin, Zyban, cold turkey, etc.

You had the dream, but you didn't have the drive. You have to want it badly enough to stick with it NO MATTER WHAT.

I'm talking from personal experience as a former 2-1/2 pack per day smoker.

Last cigarette was May 6th, 1992. Quit cold turkey.

Did you get your pay when you left?nm
I should have said "I left him and TOOK the
baby, the dog, the IBM and the dictaphone! Eek! Sounds like I left them WITH him! No way!
What - that you left 24 and QA was able to get 16 of them? LOL
I left because of it
Unprofessional emails and phone calls.
Nope. I ain't takin' it. I respect myself more than that. It was the attitude of everyone in the company I came in contact with. Unbelievable.
Getting out of MT, I have left MT
because of the reasons stated below.  Because I was a good ER MT, I received all the crappy dictators, accounts, you name it.  Even told the MTSO that I was getting burned out with all of the crap, but six months later, I came to the conclusion that getting an ulcer was not what I wanted for my dedication.  Tried four or five different companies, and as a poster said below, they lied about everything (accounts, lines, ease of use of program/software, amount of work, etc.)  So I'm gone.  Kind of miss the medical transcription work I did but do NOT miss the BS that comes with it.  They used me until I couldn't bear it anymore.
Yes....I just left my MT job ....
I relate with these comments 100%. I worked for a great service with a great owner for the last 10+ years. First started out in 1989 making great money ( and on a typewriter) with decent turn-around-time and simple common-sense formats. Over the years, the Turn Around Time has decreased, the formats have become a maze of ever-changing rules, and as others have stated...no money! I might as well get a job that is less wear and tear on the body and mind. "Chained to the computer" described the job well. I resigned a few weeks ago what had become a sweat-shop job. Seems like instead of the computer making the job better, it has become worse. Someone mentioned they heard it said MTs were making too much money. That is eerie because I remember hearing that comment 15 years ago and I tossed it off as sarcasm. Now I wonder. This job is nothing like it used to be. So, as stated I QUIT!
There was something you left out in
your post. What about the possibility that this person makes good money because they just guess and "fill in the blanks"? Or maybe they leave a lot of blanks so that they can do more work?

I have come across this before. Not all MTs who make good money are getting good money because they are good at their jobs. Some pad their lines, and some just make up stuff to fill in the blanks. To all of those GOOD MTs out there who struggle to make the money they once used to make, don't let people put you down as unworthy because they think they are better than you.
I left my job too
After 7 years and I should have left sooner. Their VR and platform were awful (Spheris) I was making half of what I used to.  I have not gotten away from VR but I have 2 jobs where at least I can be more productive. I kept waiting for things to improve -I thought if I just worked on it it would happen- now I feel a lot of the stress is gone.
Thanks, what was left of my sanity has been...
I'm beginning to wonder if that's all there is left is
crap dictation.  Most of us say we're doing the crappy dictation and ESLs.  So the good stuff is really going overseas or to VR?  Or are there people here who get the good stuff all the time, which is why they make good money and we don't?
If you are just looking to align left or...
To align (left, right, or justified) you can either set the page up before you start typing by going to Format, then Paragraph, Indents and Spacing.  You will see a General section that says alignment.  This is where you choose how you want it set up.  If you want to do this after you are finished typing, highlight all text that you want to format.  Right click.  The drop down box will give you the option of Paragraph. Choose Paragraph.  This will bring up that same box that shows Indents and Spacing.  Go to the General section where you see alignment and then choose which option you want (left, right, justified).  This will then apply it to the text you have highlighted.  Hope this helps.
no hair left
i hate to tell you but it doesn't get any better. been with them for over 3 years -- i still have my hair, but have lost my sanity!!
I've left MT too
Good for you!
I just left China
Actually, I just left China. Poor old souls. Not many pretty women in China.

I needed to get home to the states to see all the beautiful women. I felt like I was intoxicated when I came through the door at Medquist and saw all my beautiful gals.
If acct is on ASR, what is left for MTs
is the worst of the dictators that have always and will always be a problem. The best speakers are put on ASR to the machine can under stand it. They've got you. It is no faster that using expansions. There is no production increase, so there should be no decrease in MT/ME pay. THAT WAS THE DEAL! I will go back to cut and paste an old post that says what happens.
Think of them as right and left arrows.

Think of them as arrows on a number line.


If the arrow is pointing right, it's greater than.  If the arrow is pointing left, it's less than.  Think L (left) for Less than.

The left Menu....
The left Menu is actually a javascript for fast loading of pages. Your browser's scripting is disabled.

Go to "Tools -> Internet Options..." from the main menu of Internet Explorer.

Change to the "Security" tab
Select "Custom Level".

Make sure "Enable" is selected under "Active scripting"

Restart the browser.

If above doesn't work, run some Spyware or Anti-virus, because most of the viruses and Trojans stops the javascript in first place.

Yea!!!!! I found one - man had one left!!!!sm
Thanks for all your help - if I had not found one - I would have definitely checked out those Amish horses. Thanks to all for your comments. Just found out Papa John is going to start building these again after the first of the year.
With the national I just left,

you need to basically double your production in order to break even with what you earned before by transcribing.  And they're doing VR with the better dictators so only the worst dictators are left.  And yes, they overhire, as well.

I'll never go with a national again.  Was the worst experience I ever had.  Give me a smaller company any day.  They seem to treat people better. 

Email left...thanks!

It's to your left on this board. :) nm
