I use Abacus and love it. Free too! nm
Abacus is not free. It is $20 but worth it. You can download a trial version free which does not h
I have used this for years and have compared to Sylvan, Word, and MP Count, etc. When you have it set to count every character, bold, shift, tab, etc. It is great and always higher than the others. Now if you are wanting gross lines like in Word then no it won't be as high because Word counts blanks lines and Abacus counts a line only if there is a character on it. There is also two places to check for it to count the Headers/Footers. If you have the FREE version then it must be the trial or a very old version so you don't have all the features and functions.
Is Abacus still free? nm
I use a program called The Abacus.
You can download abacus free. You just have
to delete this line that says: Buy me so you can get rid of this annoying line (or something like that). It counts your lines for you and then creates an invoice. Looks professional. Hope this helps.
Abacus has a line counting program and you
can download a free trial version of it. Don't have the website, but I think a Google search would help you find it.
Abacus Line Counting Program
I've been using this for about a year.  It used to count subdirectories.  I thought all I had to do was check "add subdirectory files to listbox."  Now it's not working.  Am I forgetting something? 
Use Abacus. You can download for free. Very accurate. nm
I use Abacus; however, it is an older version. Don't know if it has been upgraded. It is free.
There is a free download line counter called Abacus and I have used
that program to count my lines, which works real well.  I just always used a program to do it.  It's pretty user friendly and you can try it for free and see if you like it. 
AVG - from Grisoft. Its free and awesome! nm
Yes, if you want a free program...
I use FTP Surfer. Go to www.ftpsurfer.com. Once you get that downloaded, I can help you set up your profile, etc. It is actually really easy. Don't feel embarassed!! Glad to help.
I love Judge Judy! She's awesome!
Free FTP transfer program. sm
FTP commander 8.0 is free.

Is gearplayer a free program?

I have never used gear player before and was told that I would need to use the gearplayer software and a comparable footpedal to type files.  I am used to express scribe which is free and using my infinity foot pedal. Is gear player a free program like scribe or am I going to have to pay for it?

Get Hijack, it is a free program
There is a free program called Belarc you
can download.  It will tell you processor speed, RAM, hard drive, sound card - every little thing about your computer.  I used it with Win98 and WinXP.  Google Belarc for website. 
downloading free word program
has anyone ever used open office to download word so a test can be taken?  I rent a computer from my company and I know I probably should not do this.  My question is would they know if this is being done?  Thank you.  
I agree, very excellent free program. sm
You could also run your *disc Cleanup* program to delete files, etc. Also go to My Computer, Internet Options, and Delete. Delete files, cookies, and internet history. That all helps! good luck.
Can use a free program called Audacity.
I have only heard about this and have not found the need to do it myself yet, but heard it works great.

Here is a website someone passed to me:


If you Google "tapes to digital," there are a lot of sites that give directions.

Good luck.
Does anyone know of a free program that will completely remove Starware - nm
I love Grey's Anatomy - the only show I watch faithfully. Awesome!
Can't tell you how much I love that show. Every Sunday can't wait until it comes on!

Dr. Burke and the "asian" intern are lovers.

try the MPCount one that is free!! I use it for my MTSO and just love it (sm)

Here is the link!



take essential oil and mix with salt and do a hand scrub. feels awesome, smells awesome, and very r
I love those long reports. I think of them as free money.

It's just straight transcribing with no stopping to verify patient or physician information to start a new note.  I'll trade you for 1 minute long dictations by a little Russian guy?

I do understand the frustration at the duplication of information.  Then again, the copy/paste feature works great at giving more lines for free with no typing.  LOL  I always thought that if I could find a way to simplify the medical record while still utilizing MTs, I'd be rich. 

There is also a 30 day free trial and I absolutely love this expander!
There's a tutorial in the program and yes you do create expansions while you work. Love it! nm
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.

I take MetaboLife, ephedra free. Love it, lots of energy. nm
We love the Wynn. We got free offers when they first opened but just the other day we got an offer f
The Wynn is pure luxury.. We loved it and the buffet was excellent. Where do you live? We live close enough to drive there to many times a year haha.
Thanks.. we love Vegas..get our rooms free and now you can pay like $10 for 24-hour internet service
Gotta love it..  Have fun on your trips too..
Free? As in, free trial? Otherwise, I don't think you'll find a spellcheck software that's
Check out the free demo of MTStars FlashType. It's free for 7 days.
Then, if you like it, you can purchase it for $59.95.  See link below.
I have never found a program shorthand does not work with, it works outside the program (I think tha
PRD is a DOS program. I don't think it work with Word, a Window's 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".
try Abacus
It's also free.
works well and also does daily counts, invoicing too!
I believe Abacus?

Thanks.  Does it count "differently" than Word?  What is the web site, abacus.com?  I will try it.
Can anyone help me with Abacus? SM
I'm trying to use it for the first time.  I opened the program and see the drives listed at the upper left.  However, I need to get into My Documents and go from there, and it's not listed there.  I have A, C, D, and E drives.  Even if I click on C, I don't get a choice of My Documents.  Has this ever happened to anyone else?  What am I missing here? 
Try Abacus..
It gives you a free trial version, so you can see if you like it.. Not sure of the website, just search abacus line counter.

thank you...I really like the program and did not want to change it.



I use Abacus. sm

Abacus comes with a free trial and costs around $20. It is customizable, counts in batches and I have found it to be a great tool. I consider a line to be 65 characters with spaces, including tabs, returns and header/footers. I do not count formatting or caps. Hope this helps.

Anyone know if there is a free trial period on this software?  Thanks.
