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.
Free? As in, free trial? Otherwise, I don't think you'll find a spellcheck software that's
There is a free 30 day trial you
can download to your computer. But it is missing a couple of features, can't remember which ones
AVG says that it is only a 30 day free trial
They do have a free trial
Awesome updates. Install typical if you want to not configure a lot yourself. It is pretty easy and self explanatory if you do want to configure a lot yourself, however, and you can do a lot of different things with it. One tip, especially while working, I always disable the http traffic monitor. Slows things down even with massive memory. All the other things it does keeps your system very safe without that.
Sylcount IV lines only. You can trial for 30 days.
Shorthand has a free 30-day trial.

You can also download other people's dictionaries off the 'Net, but I chose to make my own according to my own abbreviation rules for ease of remembering.  I think there are other websites to download from besides this one, but I can't find them right now.  I tried Instant Text and used Word's Autotext feature, but I kept coming back to Shorthand.  Just make sure you read the Help file and tutorial because otherwise, you'll miss out on a lot of valuable features.


I forgot to add that there is usually a 30-day free trial. nm
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.
Download ShortHand for a free trial.

Of all the expanders I've tried, it's been the easiest to learn and use.  Good graphic user interface, too.  Lots of features.  Read the help file and manual because there are a lot of neat features I didn't even know about until I read about them.


You can download the free 30-day trial of Shorthand here.


Then it's $99.95 to purchase it at the end of the free trial, but it pays for itself and is really easy to use.  That'll give you a month to save up the money for it.  My stats vary on it anywhere from 26% to 67% depending on my dictator.

You can download a trial version free.
Free trial version, 20 bucks to buy...(sm)

I use the Abacus line counter. They have a trial version which is free and gives you accurate line counts, or you can buy it for $20. Here's the link: http://www.theabacus.biz

Shorthand - You can download a free 30-day trial
and try it out. It has its quirks but is a good simple program.
Switch offers free trial so can see if it is what
i would see if they would hire you on a part-time basis those 2 days you are off for a trial to see
Works ok, but you get what you pay for. I think there is a free trial version. Not nearly as good
There is also a 30 day free trial and I absolutely love this expander!
Go to Stedmans.com and download the free trial and save your money on overnight shipping
Offer to do the work for free. You have not done something that has not been done before.
I think ShortHand and SmartType offer free trials. 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.
We're not a transcription service. We offer toll free call in dictation
service at rock bottom prices. I was only offering you an alternative without having to put out a lot of money by buying handheld units.
YEAH!!! free after 14 days !!!

Offer 1 week notice, but willing to offer 2 if they would be in a bind. Also, (sm)
make sure your resignation letter is written with class.  Never good to burn your bridges.
30 hours divided by four days equals seven-hour days. Most of us have to work pretty much every day
Working 6/hour days, 5 days/week I make
$42,000.00, but the work is there to make more if I want to.  I'm in the southeast. 
2000 low days, 4000 busy days
Did 43,000 lines last month.   6 doctors. 
You can "make a living" if you work 16-hr days, 7 days
and if you rarely buy anything but food and the barest essentials in clothing. My balancing act is so precarious that all it'll take is one of life's little disasters (rent increase, sick pet, major car repair) to pull the rug out from under me. Not a good feeling at all.
550-650 lph on average. Some days more, some days less. It all depends. nm
How? By working 12-hr days 7 days/week?
Thank you! I may do a trial...
well.  I was just wondering if I had to retype as I do have some other accounts that I would eventually put on there.  I was also wondering about the invoice feature as one accont I get paid for blank lines....  Anyway not to ramble...  Thanks again! 
Maybe you could ask for a trial
Maybe you could ask for a trial period, tell the potential employer the problem, that DSL is not available to you. I may be wrong, but I think you can get satellite internet most anywhere, if there's no other alternative. Also, if you are able to get cable, check into cable modem, which most any cable company is doing now. Sorry for your situation! I hope you find work soon!
trial - would if I could!
Unfortunately, I've already called the cable company and that's not available here yet either. Satellite is, but most of these companies say that it MUST be DSL or cable and that satellite will not work.

I would certainly offer a trial, but I can't even get anyone to talk to me! They find out I don't have cable/DSL, that's the end of the conversation.

It's just nuts...

NOT trial
The softwares are not good for 90 days or something. They are good without any trial period.
Flashtype trial
where is link??? didn't see
I think it would be likely a doc would prescribe a trial Rx although

EVERYONE does better attention-wise with stimulant medication, whether or not they have ADHD. That's why people drink coffee in the morning.

Since it is a trial version...
They may only allow you to play their pre-loaded files and not add your own. Why not try the Express Scribe player--it really is free. Link below.
Trial and error.
I check with former companies that I still have good relationships with. I check the job boards. I cold email "good" companies and asked about part time. I have 4 jobs at the moment, 3 transcription and I work at a vet 4 days a month for a couple hours just to take a break and do something I really enjoy.
yes it is free....mine was free....why the exclamation?
Thank you...truly trial by fire but once you get over it you're stronger. nm
ShortHand 30 day trial download
IT TAKES TIME to get a trial going.

Here is a link regarding the lawsuit from FEBRUARY, 2005 for which you will need Acrobat reader.


Here is MQ e-mail which was followed up by hard copy in US mail regarding MT lawsuit. 

July 14, 2005

VIA Electronic and U.S. Mail

Dear Statutory Medical Transcriptionists:

We would like to thank you for your continued service and support. We know that the key to our success is the people who work so hard for our customers everyday.

At MedQuist, we are determined to become the medical transcription provider of choice for statutory employees. Over the past several months, with your help and input, we have been working on developing a pay plan and comprehensive benefit program that will enable us to set the standard in the industry. We recently announced significant changes to our benefits program for full time employee transcriptionists and within the next few months, MedQuist will be announcing a new pay plan that will address the feedback we received from medical transcriptionists in response to our survey on pay issues.

As you may also know, MedQuist is currently responding to a lawsuit brought by three medical transcriptionists that was filed in response to certain publicity surrounding MedQuist's billing practices involving the AAMT billing unit of measure. MedQuist takes all allegations concerning its pay practices very seriously and will seek to address any concerns raised by the lawsuit. While we believe that the claims raised by the three transcriptionists appear to lack merit, we are diligently working on addressing this matter in order to best serve all of our valued medical transcriptionists.

To enable us to fully and appropriately respond to this, as well as other lawsuits currently pending against the company and governmental investigations, our lawyers from Winston & Strawn are required to collect documents. To ensure that you are completely informed about the materials they are seeking, we have attached a memorandum below regarding MedQuist's document retention and collections policy. Please review this document as soon as possible.

Once again, we would like to express our deep appreciation for your continued patience, cooperation and service to the company.

Very truly yours,

Frank Lavelle




The lawsuit is VERY MUCH ALIVE AND WELL and as some of the more sophisticated posters realize, it takes time for DISCOVERY allowing both sides to attack and defend their position.  And MQ stock is STILL delisted as not even MQ can figure out cooked books based on illegal billing for which ANOTHER lawsuit is STILL pending against MQ by the clients.  And as the MQ stock remains delisted for cooked books and illegal billing the shareholders in MQ stock have YET ANOTHER lawsuit still pending. 


FYI, you can download a 30 day trial of Shorthand

to use until you buy something.


You can download a free 30 day trial medical spellchecker at Sylvan.  I've never used it, and I'm sure there are others out there, but these will get you by in a pinch.


link enclosed for trial.




This is where I downloaded the free 30 day trial from.  It also says you can order a trial CD if you prefer.  So far, I am enjoying playing with this expander.  It seems like it offers a lot!  Wish me luck..

Does anyone know of a trial WAV pedal software
The trial version I had before did find and

that my Spybot and Ad-Aware missed.  I had some nasty at the time that my trial version of Ewido took care of quite nicely that the others couldn't.  Definitely worth the download. 

So glad you posted the above, about the newer version (still had the old expired exe's in a file on my computer just as a reminder to think about buying it at some point).

Does anyone know if IT offers a trial period? sm

From the comments on this post and the post I placed yesterday, I am convinced I would like to try IT.  I hate to spend $189 though and not like it but I do not see on their web site where they offer a money back trial period.  Also, do you know if you download it and have it immediately or if it comes in the mail? Thanks to all who have offered their opinions, it really helps!

It does have a 30-day money-back trial. nm
Instant Text trial

Instant Text comes on a CD with a book.

There is no downloadable version on our website. What you buy is a User license that is not tied to one computer. As long as you are the only user you can have Instant Text on a backup computer or a laptop without any problem.

We offer an unconditional thirty day money back guarantee. No stocking fee.
See link below.
