SEARCH tool does not work...

Posted By: Searching on 2008-03-07

When I try using the SEARCH tool, to look up past information, it does not work.  Is this just temporary, or am I doing something wrong?

Why does search not work???
I can put something in the search engine AND change it to seach mtstars archives and it won't do it.  It still says it can't find anything or gives me web sites on that subject.  I'm not leaving it on search the web but it will not work.  I can even put Medquist or another word that is right here on the home page and it won't find anything???????????
I can't ever get the search functions to work for me either
This site definitely has one of the worst search functions I've ever seen. I've tried all different sorts of ways and though I've seen posts on subjects in the last month, will NOT come up in search, old archives, etc. VERY annoying!
Many companies pay 10 cpl or better. You just need to do the leg work and search.
You will find they do exist.
MDI Maryland pays 10 cpl as SE, Precyse offered me 10.5 cpl as employee, JLG pays 10 cpl if not higher, Get Back Jack Productions is 10 cpl and 11 cpl on the weekends, Even Transcend pays 10 cpl if you negotiate for it.

There are many more out there.

Good luck!
Does anyone find the search feature on this board doesn't work right?
I can't ever seem to find the old posts that I know are there by using the search feature.  Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?
your tool bar
has a language option. I use it all the time when I need to transcribe for UK
on your tool bar at the top....
there is a paragraph symbol. click that and your formatting should turn off.
tool bar

Open Word, run your mouse up to the top of the page and right click in the space where you would see the tool bar, another elongated box should pop up, click standard or whatever tool boxes you use.  If this does not get your tool bar back, under tools go to customize.  This will bring up the same information to access your various tool bars.



Yep, I'm a complete tool like that.

I thought as I aged I would grow cojones...the problem is, we moved up here and it's just so far away from friends and family, that when company does show up, planned or not, it is truly a blessing.  I am incredibly lonely up here, and as I work out of a home in a land where I don't know ANYONE except my immediate neighbors, friends have not been easy to make and, well, you can see why I have so many postings on this board. 

So, I guess I'll continue to treat people as I wish to be treated...with a big hug, a warm smile, and a "I'm so glad you were able to stop by"...and then stress out and drink black coffee laced with 1/4 pound of suger catching up on work while they sleep soundly.  I only got this one life, so I might as well try to squeeze everything into it with at least a calm and cool outer appearance    ;-)


moving tool bar
So I played around with Word. There are three dots to the right of the word File. Put your curser on the three dots and drag them back up to your tool bar. They will then be in a "little bar/box" then click on that bar again and "drop" it back on top. Hope that helps!
pick your tool
I am a slow-medium typer, and I do quite well straight typing, using a word Expander program and LOTS of expansions. With VR I found less opportunity to take advantage of expansions. Expander programs and VR are both tools we can use to increase our productivity. Because the VR pay is so low, I choose to straight type and use the expander tool.
not the sharpest tool in the shed
great motivational tool

I have found that this greatly motivates me to keep my speed up.  I set one of those metal change counters that you wear on your waist next to my screen. Everytime I complete a line I press the nickel lever and a nickel falls out. Just the sound of that makes me want to type faster.  For those of you who make 7 to 8 cpl, it is a few more presses per line, but definitely will keep you going as fast as you can.


tool bars moving
Usually you can click - drag and drop them where you want them - hope this works for you this time.
Tool bar in Word. I do not see the option to
MS word tool bar - another question
I also lost the "paragraph" symbol and cannot seem to get it back the same as the print and print preview method. Can you guide me on this one as well

Part of my toolbar, from file through help, is now vertical along the left side of my screen. I checked "help" but could not come up with the solution for moving it back to the horizontal top of the screen position.

Thank you

I think you click on the symbol for return on your tool bar


Great tool for creating shortcuts

I just found this really great site with a tool on it for counting the repeated phrases in documents which we as MTs can use to make shortcuts! 

here it is:  http://medicaltranscriptionexpandproductive.blogspot.com/

The water bottle is a very good training tool

for cats (squart guns too).  Get a good scratching post and rub it with catnip.  I use double-sided tape that I get from the Foster&Smith website and the cats leave my furniture alone.  (I have 4 cats).  The log is a nice idea too...messy but nice in addition to scratching posts and such. 

Not all combs/brushes are created equal and I have found that the curry-comb type work best.  They are sometimes called a shedding comb.  It is in the shape of a loop with a handle.  I put a towel on the floor and go to town!  In the spring I can get a cat-sized ball of fur off of them using this comb.  Regular combing will really help keep your house cleaner.  You still need to use a roller or duct tape placed around your hand to remove it from your furniture on a regular basis.  Good luck.

icons/tool tray on side of screen
Can't move them back to the bottom where they were, inadvertently moved them when resizing screens.  How do I get them back on the bottom?  TIA
Transferring Bayscribe Productivity Tool into Word

Does anyone know if it's possible to make the Bayscribe Productivity Tool work in Microsoft Word?  Or at the very least, transfer the expansion list into Word's expander?

its a tool like macros, you have to teach it to understand you and edit at first the words it does
What I understand is, it helps out if you have body parts that are giving out, but it will not, say.. double your production. 
There is an upload hanheld icon on the tool bar of the Olympus software.
from the unit to the computer, then the file can be dragged and dropped.  Good luck!
Is the tool bar in your internet browser?... is the emial web based or Outlook?
There is a a button on your speech tool bar called "General Settings" SM
it has a hammer and wrench on the button.  Click that button and you will see in the center of the box that opens up (and slight to the right) "number of spaces after period."  Change that to 2 and click okay.  That should give you two spaces after the period at the end of the sentence.
it is attached to your version of Word. Open Word and it'll be on your tool bar. NM

best for me is www.rxlist.com

just type 1 or 2 letters and add *, then you'll get the drugs containing those letters.

Did you try the search at the top?
Do a search for
Silent Night Radio. Download it and run the program and look for Radio Free Colorado.

They have. Search the net. nm
do a search
This was all discussed in quite detail about a week or so ago.  Do a search and see what you find.  With only a year's experience you may have a little bit of trouble.  You say you are working for a local MTSO, what are they paying you, add on 20 to 30%.  Do they print?  You have to be prepared to do any kind of job, tapes, digital, printing, delivering, pick-up, transferring files before you advertise to get an account and have all the equipment necessary and everything ready to go.  But just like every other service, you gotta go out and make the calls to get the account, it isn't going to come to you and knock on your door unless you have been an established business.   Check in to see about a business license, register your name with the state, get ready for taxes, etc.   
do a search
I ran a search and got 0
Sorry to repeat a question but I had run a search before I posted and it produced nothing - I don't know why.  Forgive me for being a bother.
Do a search
If you do an archieve search yo will see that this is talked about every 7 to 10 days at least.  It is no big secret it is basically what you feel your service is worth and then figuring up what you rexpenses are, paper, delivery, etc.     As stated there are too many differntials to state flatly how much to charge -- it is not like minimum wage -- but it seems like a good starting point is 0.12 cpl but again every part of the country is different and what you will be providing in your service is different than mine.  But do a search as we went into this quite extensively about a week or so ago.    Patti
Do a search

Do a search as this has been really talked about several times during the past month or so.



You have to have the word exactly the same when you do the search if there is an extra space between first and last name or between two words it will not pull it up.  I use the search from my START key rather than from working in the microsoft word.  I also name my documents with an extension .doctor initial, i.e. .mb .jn .eif or whatever so if I know the doctor I can specify in advanced search to look only at that doctor's documents.  But if I am looking for a type of report, i.e. Colonoscopy, op note on crushed finger/nailbed, then I just put in those words and tell it to search all "My documents" or wherever you file off your reports and it does so.  I have had very good luck with this.   Hope this is what you were talking about. 


Sorry - should have done a search

I see this question has been answered many times. Never mind.


If you type those schools into the search box for MTSTars, you will come up with hundreds of repsonses to that very question.  As well as a wealth of information.

Good luck with your decision. 

search it
I would suggest you either do a Google search OR you can type those phrases into the search box here on MTStars.  I am sure those questions have been answered on here before and you can probably gain the information you are looking for.  People on here are very knowledgable about that stuff. :)
I did a search. take a look at this : sm but I will keep looking
Is Adobe Acrobat 7.0 installed on the computer? If so, the Acrobat 7.0
Create Adobe PDF toolbar add-in for Word prevents Word from automatically
saving changes to the normal.dot template (which is where autotext is
stored). Create/change the autotext again, and click "Shift+File | Save All"
to force Word to save the normal.dot template. Alternatively, you can
prevent the add-in from loading as described in the last section of

the PDF toolbar if you do this.
