    I assume you are assigned number much like a license number that can be verified through the AAMT.

    Beyond that, I have no idea.

    It is a very small keyboard and has laptop keys which are very quiet and light to the touch.  Almost no noise.
    Telephone ringing
    I had a telephone conversation come through once -
    It may have been a walkie - I am pretty sure I saw the guy drive down the street in front of me talking on something - it was very brief, I think probably when he was in very direct range.  It was wierd!
    Telephone solicitors from out of US?

    This person who just called had an extremely thick accent and could not understand me, I had to repeat everything at least twice.  This person gave the name of "John Green". I asked if they were calling from the United States and he said "yes".  The phone number showed an area code in New York, does this assure he is calling from there or can they call from heaven-knows-where through another company's number? 

    Telephone Solicitors from below

    Found a way to stop Dell from calling us hourly for awhile anyway.

    We have it set up to be able to view our account online with Dell. 

    I hate Dell.  They have the worst customer service. They start calling 3-4 days BEFORE the payment is due and continue to call us every hour on the hour wanting us to pay check by phone.  NOT on your LIFE!

    Last night, we went online and changed our telephone information on our account.  Instead of our phone number, they now have THEIR phone number.  Let them call themselves.  Wonder how long it will take them to figure that one out.

    Telephone dictation for your clients

    Anyone interested in offering toll free dial in dictation to their clients? I found a small company that is offering this service for $45/mo. It seems very reliable and they deliver my dictation files via FTP as a .wav file.

    If interested reply back and I'll send you their contact info.

    Non-compliance of telephone lines
    Has anyone had any difficulty with the new SBC/AT&T?  I have been told I do not have many options other than a per minute plan.  I have seen a program called CallVantage.  Does anyone have any information on this plan?
    I live in SC and have Verizon for telephone
    and internet.  We could get Time Warner Cable also but chose Verizon instead.  We have a home phone which is Verizon also.  We do not have a long distance carrier such as AT&T since we use cell phones for long distance.
    Telephone Record Adaptor
    You might want to look into getting a telephone record adaptor that plugs into your laptop sound card.  Also would require audio capture software but then the files would be recorded onto your computer and from there you could transcribe them.
    It looks similar to a telephone. You use it to dial

    directly into the hospital system (usually, can also dial into MTSO system).  You have a foot pedal that controls the dictation.  You complete a report, sign it off and then get another one.  Unless you have an 800 # to dial into, you will need unlimited long distance and most companies that say they offer ULD have a 5000 minute limit, which may not cover you. 

    You can Google C-phone and find a picture and get more info. 

    Broadband/Internet Telephone Service
    Does anyone use a broadband/internet telephone service for transcription, such as Vonage, Covad, Lingo, SpeakEasy? I have a local long distance account and am looking into this type of service for a monthly flat fee for unlimited minute usage. Otherwise, the long distance fees would eat me alive. Any info on any company, good or bad, would help me tremendously in making my decision. I am researching several via the internet, but once again, any info would help.

    Have a save and sane 4th of July!

    downloading dictation versus telephone
    ive been transcribing 220-250 lines per hour using the following:  I dial into the telephone system using a Dictaphone to access the dictations and use Persona Client and Telnet software. It is all just straight typing, the dictation is waiting for me as I don't have to download nething.  I get paid by minutes dictated.  For example, if I transcribe 1 hour of dictation it would equal 600 lines.  600 lines at 8 cpl = 48.00.  I'm lookin elsewhere for employment, and I'm worried about the downloading of dictations (which seems most are doing now-a-days) slowing my daily production down.  Does anyone seem to be more/less productive as far as using a telephone to access dictations as opposed to downloading.  Also, is there a big difference between getting paid per 65 character line or by minutes dictated.  TY
    magicjack with Lanier or telephone line - sm
    The magicjack did not work with my Lanier, and my friend has dial-up and it would not work for her WITHOUT transcribing equipment, just regular calls. I sent mine back the same day.
    Need Company that Turns Telephone Dictation into WAV/DSS Files



    Can anyone recommend a good company that will take my client's telephone dictation and convert them into WAV or DSS files that I can then access and transcribe?. A company that has good pricing and is reliable.  I probably won't have a huge volume to start.  Thank you.


    Hi, just lately I spoke with a couple of companies who said they re-imbursed for telephone charges..
    or supplied "calling cards" for specific accounts -- myself, I am glad to be away from C-phones, I did not have a great fondness for them! Have a good one!
    deduct telephone, electric and portion of house payments.
    Hope this helps!
    I didn't find an 800 number, but I did find this number...

    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!!!
    What's the tech number?

    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....
    Maybe call the 800 number? I would do that right away as....sm
    this might indicate there is something wrong with the keyboard itself in which case you might need to return for store for exchange.
    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!
