this might indicate there is something wrong with the keyboard itself in which case you might need to return for store for exchange.

Add your number to the "Do Not Call" List

Not sure what the link is to get to it but its a national list that is now the law- telemarketers can not call you if your on the Do Not Call list. I'm sure you'll be able to find it if you Google it.

We also have our number listed as "private". I think there is a charge but its very small, under $2 a month (because its considered a "feature")

I call the nonemergency police number and let
My name isn't involved. They just state that there are complaints of noise coming from that apartment.

I've never had a showdown with anyone over this.

Call the police...the non-emergency number
most communities have noise ordinance laws. If the cops show up enough times they will stop. Trust me, I've done it. I had a neighbor that used to blast music at the wee hours. I tried the *nice neighbor* tactic of asking him not to do that becuase I have a child and we need to sleep, etc. Well, that didn't work. He worked 2nd shift and believed it was his *right* to blast his music whenever he wanted. After I called the cops a few times on him...he stopped, and I haven't heard so much as a peep out of him since!
yep..get their CMT number and call AAMT to verify.
I got the call; it originated out of the NJ MQ office; I verified the number. sm.
The individual asked whether or not I had received the letter announcing that a package would be coming my way. State the facts, girls.
ATA - here's a toll free number-- give them a call...
The American Transcription Association (ATA)
1210 Old York Road, Suite 101, Warminster, PA 18974
(Toll-Free) 877-786-5513
Here it is. when you call, you'll get an id number..that makes re-ordering faster. sm

Also, the custom sheet has to be specific..when we sent easter eggs..12 large eggs with jelly beans, 24 medium plastic eggs with jelly beans..etc. there are rules about what can be sent..for specific countrys..I'll look for that now.
Can someone from the Ohio MQ office give me a contact person and a phone number to call or an email
address. I am interesting in asking a few questions to someone there in hopes of possibly transferring but I need some info first before I go from one problem to the same one elsewhere.
I assume you are assigned number much like a license number that can be verified through the AAMT.

Beyond that, I have no idea.

Gold touch makes a keyboard without number pad. Also the evoluent keyboard has the number pad on th
It is a very small keyboard and has laptop keys which are very quiet and light to the touch.  Almost no noise.
got the "phone call" -- get this, MQ has hired a bunch of telemarketers to call all of us to

we received our "incentive packet."  They don't even have the wherewithall to contact us personally.   These are temp-agency hired telemarketers sitting around a boiler room making sure we're reading our mail.... told him it don't pertain to me because I've been demoted from FT to SE.... He said, "yes, the letter is vague, but it does pertain to FT as well as SE...." yeah right, we'll see.

I didn't find an 800 number, but I did find this number...
1 650-253-0000

*70 will disable call waiting unless you are expecting a call and want it on (nm)
On-call requires on-call compensation by law
This field gets more disgustingly grotesque daily.
Looking for MQ number...sm

I went through training and am supposed to start soon. I got a phone call from someone named Elaine who said something about the CHW Mercy/Memorial account and gave me a 3658 extension. I called the MQ number I have and they said there is no one there by that name or extension.

Does anyone have a phone number for this person or know how I can reach her?


100 number

If you choose to block your call by either *67 or *69 (forget which one it is) and the nunmber your dialing does not accept blocked numbers and asks you to put your number in, you can put ANY number you choose in and the call will go through.

Did'nt know that one until one of my kids (figures) told me about it.  So it could be the new wave tool of solicitors/bill collectors or just other teens pulling pranks.

Number 1 through 9
I was always told to spell out anything below 10 (even at Medquist).  Prior to taking my second test, a recruiter actually told me that this is a recent change and to make sure to take note of it during the test???  It is so hard to keep things straight sometimes with all the changes and conflicts.  Aiyeee!!!
They want your ss number
in case you decide to skip on your bill; then they can send you to a collection agency.  Are they just supposed to believe because you appear with a medical card that you are covered?  NOT!
age is only a number
I am 43 and am trying to get into a CNA program through a local nursing home.  I took care of my mother-in-law for 8 years before passing away in Januarey of this year.  After doing this I have realized that I want to this instead of typing the reports.  Go for it.  I am.  Good luck!!!
Call me, call me anytime.
I'm waiting to hear back on a job.  Call me!
Call KS and call your bank. Why ask here?
If they don't call you within 15 minutes, you should call them. There
is no excuse for leaving you sitting by a phone all day. At the very least, an e-mail explaining why the delay. If this is the way they train, how do they pay. Do you really want to work for a company who thinks so little of your time?
Telephone Number ...sm
The number you gave below for Detective Joe Rodriquez is not working...sounds like a fax line...please advise? TIA
What's the tech number?

What's the tech number?


Number pad.......try rebooting. nm
Sleep Number Bed
We've had the Select Comfort Sleep Number Bed for several years now and it definitely is the most comfortable bed. We had a water bed for years and years and love it too.  The one down side to the Sleep Number bed after having a water bed is that when you crawl into it on a cold nite it is COLD. We don't have an electric blanket. The water bed was always like climbing into a nest! But I would HIGHLY recommend a Select Comfort bed. Paul Harvey and Rush Limbash both advertise them on their shows. After having the bed for a couple years our house took a lightning strike and it blew out the air pump. We called them and they send another pump at no charge. That was very nice.
What on earth is the 100 number

an no one ever answers?

Number vun, eet ees . . . peerrriod sm
Oh, gawd, I really hate the ones who barely speak English. All I can do is type the words and then go back and try to figure out what they're trying to say. Verbatim my #%@!
Number one producer

I have just put in 19,000 lines for 8.5 days on top of being team leader for two accounts.  I am number one.


Her background? I cannot name the number of
Master-degreed nurses I have worked with and done transcription for who are not able to annunciate or spell terminology and medications, etc. When I would ask them about their dictation, they wouldn't even know what they were reading off on simple radiology and lab reports, etc. It was shocking.

Her "background" does not necessarily give her what she needs. Whether she needs to make haste on an MT school/course depends truly on how competent of a student she was in her nursing studies.
so please take a number...*lolol*...nm
I looked into it and our number is still
registered as do not call, has been since 2003, but (and I did not know this part) it expires in 2010. I am glad I saw that. Thanks again!!
luv my sleep number bed!!!
we have a king size, plenty of room and comfort for me, hubby, and our zoo of animals!
Does anyone own a sleep number bed and if so, do you like it? Thx
If you have a contact number, and you really
want the job, you may want to try that avenue.  You can try to come off on the phone like you were just following up and being quite honest about it state that you intent is to be of bother, but you would love to join their team and help with the "new" account.  Sometimes I think the companies looking get so involved with recruiting that they can get lost in that for a time.  If it is clinic work, I have noticed that pretty much weekends do not really count, so I would try to stick to Monday-Friday as far as communications with them.  Acute care accounts are a little different, I think, in that regard, as they are more apt to communicate on weekends since they usually require staffing as such.  I hope this makes sense.  Good luck in your endeavors.
Do you have a product number on this? Some way to
There could be any of a number of reasons.
Some physicians have a God complex and freak at the slightest mistake. I have seen that happen many times even if it was something the MT could not control. You should have been given better instructions regarding format, but the powers that be may not have realized you were not. If the physician freaked, the office staff was not going to admit that they did not do their part.
For me, its in infinite number..as many as I can get.

I have pressed every number on the key pad
and no luck.
I would if you have contact number.

Number of characters used

Wondering how many accounts are charged/or pay a per line rate based on a character count and if 65 is always the # of characters per line used or can that vary?


Thank you.

I used to listen to one do number 2
I did work for one doctor who made a habit of dictating while on the toilet. It was many years ago, I worked in a hospital and finally started taking the tapes to the hospital administrator, who agreed that it was beyond my duty to have to listen to the physician grunt, fart, plop and flush. Of course, those were back in the days when MTs were regarded as real people. He told the doctor to stop it or the hospital would no longer require the MTs to do his work and told me to destroy any future recordings done on the toilet so they could be redictated. It stopped.

Number one, No, I did not know it would blow up

As I said, I had never encountered this situation before. How could I know what would happen when I posted this?

Number two, you don't see me posting the patient's name, do you, or even my own name so that this post could in any conceivable way be connected to the patient.

My only concern was the patient's privacy. I have worked in-house and I know how many people see x-ray reports, people that you hope are reliable and honest and follow HIPAA rules but I know for a fact not all of them do.

This is exactly why I would not go to the police or for medical help if I were raped unless I were practically dying.

Number of lines
I have no idea, since we got paid per report. Before our production increase, 96 radiology reports was equal to eight hours of work, and with DNS I could usually do this in six hours or less, depending on who the radiologist was, since some obviously go into much more detail than others. I do know that DNS types much faster than most humans could ever type. I loved doing radiology until we upgraded our computers and my older version of DNS would not work with XP. It was so old that it was not upgradable and I never got around to shelling out another $1000.00 for the full version. I would think that the newer versions are even more accurate and learn your voice a lot quicker than the version I was using.
After a certain number of views
It will flame.  I am not real sure how many hits a particular post has to get before turning to a flame, but I do believe this is why.  As for sm, I really don't know.  Maybe see message? 
I called their 800 number
After talking to the rep on the phone, he basically admitted that there was virtually no difference between the medical version and the $99 version. For what it's worth....
A number have gone to speech rec - sm
because Radiology is so repetitive that it's easy convert to speech/voice rec via programs like Dragon or PowerScribe. I was so frustrated with the lack of work that I went into Acute Care (in-house for a hospital).

By the number of responses...

this must not be a very common practice anymore....which in itself actually sheds some light.  




number 10 always gets me livid!

BOS and number and scales

Dicated "pain is  2 to 3 out of 10". 

I think according to BOS 2 ranges should be typed 2/10-3/10. Or should it be 2-3/10? (or something else completely?)


VR and number of lines
It is possible to do 400 or so. However, when your employer realizes you can do this, the work will be considered premium and they will jack it to their favorites. We will always get the VR work that is just beginning. Management will expect we can do double, but we are relying only on our eyes now and not our hands. It is very very hard on the eyes and brain. It is much easier to overlook errors. All in all, because we have to look at each and every word it is my opinion that VR is worth exactly as much as transcription. But hah -- good luck getting that. The downful of the experiment we call the U.S. was greed. It is unfortunately rampant in our industry. So the answer is, yes, you can probably even get more than 400 lines -- but to stay within your 98% (another bogus figure) you are going to have to stay at around 300 lines. VR is terribly hard on the eyes and the brain, but does give the fingers a bit of a rest. So we beat carpal tunnel and end up with migraines and strokes. There is the trade.
