Shorthand works with every program, it works outside the program you use, does not interfere.

You can use Shorthand in ANY program, it works outside your program
I have never found a platform it did not work with and I have worked on several different versions of Meditech. Just start using it.
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.

You should not be having that problem, Shorthand works "ouside any program." Contact Shorthan
Need Macro program for Works!

I am about to start a job as an IC for the first time.  I thought the company provided a macro program, but now it seems they don't.  I can't be productive without one, but I have never had to purchase one on my own, having used company-supplied programs for the previous 12 years.  Does anyone know a program that will work in Microsoft Works that has macros that will expand with the spacebar?  I need something easy to understand and as inexpensive as possible but that will hold maybe 2,000-3,000 shortcuts!   Thanks!

Re: Need Macro program for Works!
Thanks so much!
Instant Text works with Meditech and most any other program.
What Word program works best with Vista? Has to be less than 2007. nm
SpeedType and Shorthand are the exact same program. Shorthand is lots cheaper and also has a trial.
Shorthand and SpeedType are exact same program. Shorthand will cost you lots less.
you can import your autocorrect into Shorthand.
{@KEY BkSp}-pack-per-year is for Shorthand. Using the semicolon works with both Shorthand and

;yo = -year-old

;py= -pack-year


It is in the Shorthand program.
Open ShortHand and click on help. 
It's a really good program. I use Shorthand with it.
Instant Text also works
Shorthand program with Citrex

I believe that Instant Text will work and it is an awesome program!  I have been using it for about 7 years, really helps production and more.

Shorthand program question

I am using the trial version of the ShortHand program from pcshorthand.com.   I have some long entries in there and it seems to take forever for it to go into my report.  I sit and watch each sentence come onto the screen.  Is there a better shorthand program?  Where it just instantly pastes the entire text "BAM" instantly without having to stop and wait?

Also, maybe it just does it like this because it is a trial version????


shorthand program/bayscribe
I am having problems with this too. Did anyone resolve this? I turned of teh Bayscribe player, but how do you get ShortHand to start working>
Yep, in Shorthand & SpeedType since they are the same program.
Is Shorthand a "separate" program/not DQS?
It sounds that way, but just checking.  Thanks.
Shorthand works.
email me if you need any more info
ShortHand works just like that. $100. And you can try it out first.
Are you using Autotext, too? Macros? Why not get a program like Shorthand for your
Is there a way to copy Shorthand program from one computer
to another when I do not have the disk anymore?  Any help appreciated.  I recently bought a new computer and am looking to install my ShortHand on that computer.
Shorthand is great short cut program,
I wish you the best.
SpeedType and Shorthand are the exact same program.
SpeedType is just a different brand name and costs a whole lot more.

You cannot import into AutoText. You can copy your spf dictionary into Word and then you'll have to create the AutoText entries one by one.
Shorthand works wonderfully with DQS
Shorthand, I believe works in all Windows
programs.  It works in my email, etc. so should work in Works also
I use Shorthand. It works great in there. sm
The Scribe platform is easy to use once you are used to it. My lines have doubled in the past two months. I use Shorthand for EVERYTHING.

Go to www.pcShorthand.com. There is a trial version.
Shorthand is by far the best expander and works with everything. nm


ShortHand is up to version 9, at least, now, as it's what I have. Maybe v.10 is in the works?? nm
Shorthand works with Mysis
Haven't tried any others but I use SH with it.
Yes, Shorthand works with Meditech.

I have only worked in one version of Meditech, Meditech Magic, and it is easy to use.  There are other versions, though.  I'm sure they are easy also. 

Just make sure you get a list of what the function keys do in your version.

Shorthand works everywhere in Windows.
Can't speak for that platform specifically... but ShortHand for Windows works everywhere, including e-mail, instant messaging, and every other place that you type. They even have a 30-day free trial so you can download and test it out before laying out the $$.
Save yourself some $$ - Speedtype and Shorthand are the exact same program.
Get a decent word expansion program like PRD or Shorthand sm
autocorrect is very limited.  If you want to make money, your really need a good expander.
SpeedType and Shorthand are the exact same program. Smartype only
works in MS Word.
Shorthand and Speedtype are the exact same program, just sold
under different brand names. ShortHand does have a trial version.
Try opening up ShortHand before log in. Works with other systems like that. nm
FlashType works just like ShortHand except is cheaper.

It is an older DOS-type environment - works well with Shorthand. sm
Lots of menus, especially in radiology, but ShortHand helps you get through them very quickly is you write macros to just stop where you need to.

It can be very productive with good line counts if you are paid by the line.

Personally, I loved it, but that was because I did very well with our incentive program on it.

MTStars FlashType works just like Shorthand and costs less.
It also works on Vista.  See link below.
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".
FlashType works much like Shorthand, is cheaper, & significantly increases your
