Yes - DSS files are checked in settings

Thanks


It sounds like your settings are off for the type of files sm
you are playing. Have you played with the special audio processes under the file tab? Check your playback tab settings, the sound device, check your vox/raw settings. What type files are they? You could also check and make sure your default sound didn't get changed to something like that. Sounds like maybe an equalizer on. I have an equalizer and can select it to sound that way. Did you rule out the headphones? Lastly, if none of the above work, can you do a restore on your computer to before you downloaded the new test files and see if that fixes it?
not the OP, but i wanted to know the answer too. I don't have that question in settings/files.

Settings, Playback settings.
Increase or decrease the steps in Rewind.
Filezilla is the software used to transfer files to an FTP server where the files "reside".

Paula,

Thanks a lot for sharing these great websites!
Converting voice files to digital files

I have a Voice Solutions dictation system that will happily convert DS4000 voice files to digital when they are downloaded (wave files). However, it will not recognize any other files for conversion. I had a physician download .WAM files from his DS-30 and my dictation system would not convert it. Anyone have any suggestions?  I would greatly appreciate any input.


Thanks!!!


Did you save files in .rtf format? The files need to be
as a Word document or it won't count them. Could be the problem.
Yep, $2.00 a page and the page has about 30-40 lines on it nm
>
NJ $3 page, though I have heard as low as $1 page.

When I worked for a national, up thru 2 years ago, I was getting $1.75 page and heard they got $4.


Most companies do no use their only files (HIPAA). They use files provided by other companies, serv
If you can get through the test files, then the sound quality on the actual company files is better. And, the dictation is never as bad as the test files, plus you have QA to help with hard blanks.

What do you consider middle-aged?
Advice for middle age
Middle age can be a bitch. It can start in the 40's or 50's. Best advice? First check your overall health with healthcare provider. Lose weight if need be. Exercise. Walking is the best. Ever day. I have been taking pilates, and whoah, does that change your body and mind. Makes you lean and long, lithe and strong. Keep the mind stimulated. READ. Read about a variety of subjects. Keep an open mind. Question everything. Hang around young people, learn from them, but keep your dignity and class. Don't try to dress like them. They can learn from use too. Do fun things. LAUGH, a lot. That helps! And best advice - have a circle of girlfriends who support you and can laugh along with you!!
Once was middle class.

I was going to agree with you at first, but....  There is always food on the table, bills are paid.  Have pretty much what I need, but as I get older I care about having a lot less.  Certainly not rich, neither of us will be able to retire any time soon, although had we planned better, we might have been able to.  So I guess that put's us sort of in the middle, huh?


Hardly. We will always have and need a middle class.
The middle class is supporting everyone. This is a socialistic society.

I work and make money to pay for my stuff.

I work and make money to pay for YOUR stuff.

Believe me, there is a need for a middle class in a society like this one. They're just apprehensive to use the "S" word because it sounds too much like *gasp* Communism!
Yes, we will always NEED a middle class,
but don't think it will ALWAYS be there....just look around you.... Maybe when the rich have to take care of the "working poor" we will see a turn-around, but then again maybe they'll just "forget" them.  Don't have much faith in this economy.  The poor are being ripped of any programs that existed just a few years ago.  By the time the "middle class" hits bottom, there will be no help, no kind of any social programs in existance, just the rich and poor.  Which will you be?  Yeah, yeah, I'm pessimistic, but also realistic. 
I have a middle easterner that
has a lisp (sounds like his tongue is 4 inches thick) and speed dictates. He is Pakistani. It is indescribable and I sometimes feel like I'm slipping over the sanity brink when I type him.
Flexible is my middle name! nm

Do you have the one that is split once in the middle or (sm)
Thanks for answering. Do you have the one split once in the middle or the one that is split in 3 pieces?
If you don't like the middle man -- get your own accounts
Be the boss, get your own accounts and then you can't yell at us for taking 20 to 30% of the line count to make sure you get paid, the account is happy, TAT is met, we cover all vacations, sudden illnesses, and just not working.   If you don't like working for someone and think that we as owners have it so great, have the guts to go out and get your own accounts and see how you like all the unpaid time you have to put into your business.  
Middle Eastern. I don't know why.
I can do the others with no problem at all, but there's something about the vocal tone that I literally cannot hear it properly.
YES SIR BUDDY!! It is time to cut out the middle man.

Most MQ offices are made up of 75% statutory employees which actually means "contractors".


If the majority of transcriptionists were men, this industry would not be running like this. 


No man would stand for his client to be telling him "I'll pay you what I want, in a way I want, and I'm not going to tell you how I come up with the amount."  Nope! it would not happen.  And it's ludicrous nationals have gotten away with it so far.  MQ is the biggest perpetrator of this practice, but most nationals do it.


They want us to be "employees" until it comes time for the risks of transcription to be accepted, and then suddenly it is all on the shoulders of the at-home transcriptionist.


I'm sick of it. 


The reason a person is a contractor is because they are willing to take on the risks of a job.  But for that risk you pay greatly.  Nationals are not paying greatly.  They are paying us as if we are employees. 


As a contractor we should expect to receive 3 x what we would earn an hour as an employee.


Now tell me, are you getting that working at home? didn't think so


Any middle-aged MTs out there struggling like me?

I can only wonder why there are not more support groups for the Baby Boomer mid life females who surely are suffering with the fun of the "change."  This is very interesting to say the least!

My Grandmother started walking 5 miles a day when she was 60, she is 97 today and we don't know where the hell she is. ellen

The Shire, Middle Earth. nm

middle eastern accents
I had one yesterday for that sang and hummed most of the report. He dictated in a sing-song voice that made me think he was casting some sort of spell. In between words and sentences he would say, ahhhh, ummmmmmm, and then speed ahead with the sing-song again. And it was all in a middle-eastern accent. It was an extra long report and awful. I was so jittery by the time I finally finished.
Convinced the middle class.

do you live in a cave in the middle of no where as well? its not babysitting
We get so little of in the work place, so whats wrong with an occasional 'job well done' when its deserved, if only to make us feel better.  Or even a little personable information, we're not robots.  I've been doing this over 10 years, independent and believe me I could probably edit your reports with my eyes closed my dear. 
So you are providing the service we need to cut out the middle man? From doctor to us? nm
:]
What middle class? No longer exists. sm
Just two classes now. 
Stopped getting work in the middle of Dec and found a new job.. however he
There are some who work locally to the office.  Has anyone asked them if the office is open?  I live in a different state.  What a royal mess!
Trivia: Do you remember what Moom's middle name is? sm

Unit,  yep, Moon Unit Zappa.  


extremely annoying LOL I just did one today where the doc kept using the first name or the middle
None of which was spelled.  Wish they would make up their minds sometimes.  It would be funny (I was getting a little giggle out of it at the time I typed it) if it weren't so frustrasting at the same time.  Have a good one! :)
Need help quick! I am in the middle of baking cupcakes for

tomorrow and i only have 2 eggs and recipe on box calls for 3. Does anyone know what will happen if I use the 2? I live in the country and the store is way too far to get eggs. No neighbors either! :)


What would you do? Go ahead and try it or ditch it altogether? I was in the middle of mixing when I saw I needed 3 eggs!!!! Thanks so much!


America's middle class is disappearing, which (sm)
the country SHOULD be worried about, as we pay most of its bills. The very poor do not, and the rich have too many loopholes.
ERs.. beginning/middle and end. Short story almost.

How about middle eastern/indian trained
in Ireland and Scotland and thus have that accent with middle eastern pronounciations - have one that sounds like Shrek!!!
Comfort KB are split in 3. In middle & number

I heard *the pt is a middle-aged 36-yr-old woman*...
I'm 43 so I was thinking if 36 is middle aged what am I? This obviously came from a new doc, who was probably pushing 30 himself.
what do the middle people make per line?
I may be negotiating a contract directly with a radiology business, but I"ve only done independent contractor work up until now.  I'd like to enter into negotiations seeming like I know my way around the block:  what do companies (who hire transcriptionists) tend to make per line?  How would I find that out?
Yep, I am rich, that's why I sitting here typing in the middle of the night!
Of course when I'm done, I'm gonna hop in the limo and have Jeeves take me to NYC to breakfast and get my hair and nails done.  Wanna go?  There's room in the back.  I mean, it is a limo!
In other words, pay no attention to that big ole elephant sitting in the middle of MQ
lawsuit and SEC mess and just keep transcribing.  Now that's upbeat.  Don't believe your lying eyes and everyone else is wrong about MQ but you. 
YES my pitbull is doing this constantly. Was in the middle of an HUGE file and
i didn't pay attention to where i was. She came under the desk (she is scared of EVERYTHING) and sat on it. I got her out and started listening and I was like OH CRAP ... had to figure out where i was!!
Are you hourly? Benefits? Pay? East/West/middle?nm

sounds like its the corp money grubbing middle men
If we could get rid of them (do not know if that is possible at this point), we would have happier, higher paid MTs, and better quality work for the hospitals.  What they must think of us with the quality of work they are seeing.  IF only they knew we are backed up against the wall with everything based on production, lowered pay rates, AND limiting reports being sent to QA.  Everyone is losing here.
My middle schooler is being taught the changes in typing class.

Type Matrix keyboard has backspace key in middle- sm

The TypeMatrix keyboard is split down the middle, one split, with backspace keys (two of them) in the middle.  It is a vertically aligned keyboard, so if you can imagine each hand has its own keys and therefore its own backspace key.  You can see it at www.typematrix.com


I cannot recommend this keyboard enough (no, I donít work for them)...I have had it for several years and it is amazing...I have reduced the pain and stress in my hands and wrists by 95%....I love it! 


 


A good middle manager finds ways to do it.
I did that role for years. You have to please the client but be advocate for your MTs.

A good AM will find ways to communicate respectfully to the client regarding what the MT has to have to do the job adequately. A good AM will document and see patterns and be able to communicate that to the client. JMO. Obviously I think I was a good AM. LOL.
