Transcription Gear/Xport- sm

Posted By: sammypot on 2009-02-04
In Reply to:

We have been using this system for about a year, but have a recurring problem: We send our work through FTP but the office cannot always retrieve it and when I talk to the TG tech support they tell me that they can see that my work is "sitting in the FTP site and that the problem is with the doctor's office. This, of course, does not "sit well" with them and we are now setting up a meeting with their IT person, etc. Has anyone had a similar problem?

Thank you

I use Gear Player and Gear Xport. Love them! nm
GearXport / Gear Xport / Gear Player

Hi!  Does anyone have a Gear Xport and/or Gear Player they are no longer using and could sell to me?  I thought I'd try and buy used before going new.  Let me know! 



Transcription Gear.....sm.......


Transcription gear
I use Olympus with the company I work for now and it works well. Transcription Gear has a system that I do not think is quite as expensive. There is Bytescribe as well, and Express scribe (which is free). I think almost any handheld recorder will work with these.
try transcription gear.com nm
I purchased it through Transcription Gear
express scribe thing yet. Have too much work today to fiddle much with it. I appreciate everybody's advice and help on this.
Try Transcription gear.com website.

There should be an instruction booklet that came with the machine. Did you buy it new or used?

I got mine at Transcription Gear.
Transcription Gear FTP Question
Yes I leave Gearplayer and GearXport open all the time.  That's how i get my files (GearXport). Have used Transcription Gear and GearXport, and recently GearFTP for 8 years now and love it.  I, too, use Word XP but there are help screens in GearXport that help you write rules so that GearXport will direct the files to your clients.  Once the files are transcribed and sent via GearXport, I then send the client a notification to pick their files up on Gear FTP.  You don't have to do all that cutting and pasting.  The rule writing can be quite cumbersome if you have never done it, but the tech support staff at Transcription Gear are very helpful.  This really works great and will save you LOTS of time once you get your rules written.  Best of luck to you!
Transcription Gear has them. Listed under accessories, I think. NM
Transcription Gear user questions - sm

I just started using Transcription Gear/FTP and have some questions.

Do you keep TG open all the time? Do you keep Gear Export open all the time?

How do you send your work to the doctor? Right now I create my document in Word XP, save it, exit, and then go through several steps to paste the document to the medical records FTP site.  Seems like too many steps.

Any help with this and/or with TG in general would be most welcome.

Thank you.


Transcription Gear would have to approve the transfer of license from
I don't even know if they allow this.  You should check into that first.
I have used a Digital Transcribe Station from Transcription Gear in lieu of a C phone just fine nm

Anyone using Gear player?

Sounds like a really good package deal, anyone using it?  I am thinking of using the digital recorder and buying the gear player package.




Gear Player is also...

an  alternative.

gear player--sm
i downloaded the free 5 day trial of gear player to take a test.  Cannot get it to work.  The icon is on my desktop, but when i try to open it to drop the voice file in, it only appears for a few seconds and then nothing.  any ideas??
Gear Player is the best.
I have been using Gear Player for 4 years now and it just keeps getting better. It plays what I need it to play. I had tried StartStop before Gear Player and it was like I was back on Windows 95. Above all I love Gear Players support department, the guys are very friendly and can fix anything if you ever do need to call them.
Gear Player,

Gear Player, Transcription Gear, several places have those for sale.  Also on E-Bay.  

GEAR PLAYER---I was going to put it on e-Bay, but...sm
Email me if you are interested. I'll give you a great deal on it! It was brand new when I bought it and used it only for about a month.

Please let me know either way. I need the $$. Thanks!
Now, could you kick my butt into gear? LOL
  I don't wanna work today.  Not sure if it's the rainy weather or if it's just my total lack of motivation!
I am sure it was..i was just in high gear..going to fast to think LOL!
Gear Player is one that's used often. Need to purchase it. nm
I bought Gear Player
a few years back and it's been really good. Just throw the file in there and transcribe away. Check it out. Their latest model is probably even better.
Help with Gear Player linking
I'm trying to do a test file, which I haven't done in a long time, and the only footpedal I have is Gear Player.  The sound file was sent on Windows Media Player.  Are these compatible?  Because I can't get this footpedal to link to it.  Bear in mind I'm technically challenged and usually have help setting these things up.  I found a foot pedal test picture that lit up when I pressed each of the three footpedal controls, so the problem seems to be that I don't know how to link it to Windows Media Player, or else this foot pedal is incompatible. 
Help plz.. does anyone use the VPedal (from Career Step) and use it with Gear Player? I can get it to work with Express Scribe, but not Gear Player. It it even compatible? Any suggestions would be helpful.
Thank you Gail! I am sure they can help.
Gear player or Bytescribe

Gear player vs. bytescribe... which is the more versatile? 

I am currently using start/stop, but the voice files I get it will not let me speed them up.  Dives me INSANE to listen to a sssssllllllllooooowwwwww dictator and not be able to speed them up.... actually would like to go whomp them up the side of the head .. but since that is not an option...

Looks like Gear player you can buy just the software, but Bytescribe you have to pay another 50 bucks and get the foot pedal.. no option that I could find not to. 

Thanks for any suggestions you all might have to offer.

Gear Player vs Express Scribe
could anyone please explain to me the difference between these two??  Express Scribe is free, but when am I missing something as to why I would pay to have Gear Player?  they seem awfully similar..thanks.
Express Scribe, Gear Player, etc.

I have used Express Scribe for years and love it. I had to restore my Win XP computer and now it will not play the .dss files.  I also have Express on my Vista without problems.  I have done everything that I know to do to get it to work, installed an older version, downloaded the .dss files, etc.  I am currently having to work on Gear Player or use my laptop to play the sound files.  What else is everyone using out there besides Express, Gear, or Bytescribe?? Any help would be appreciated! 

nope i'm goin, i've got my hula gear
 weeebye ya'll
Thanks for all the feedback...time to kick it into high gear, I guess..nm
Agree, verbatim transcription equals poor quality transcription.
Know AIM transcription system, never heard of Hull transcription. Are you sure
you are not thinking about DHull who is a recruiter for MDI-FL?  They use the AIM system. 
Transcription/QA pay
What is the average hourly pay for such a combo position? Southeast and Northern regions.  TIA
how do you know who does their transcription? nm

Has anyone ever used transcription

equipment or heard of company Infoware?  Hospital is looking at buying new equipment and just wanted to know any feedback on how easy to use.

Actually, transcription should go away
The electronic forms make a lot more sense. Who wades through those piles of records anyway? I'm not sure the whole narrative serves any purpose but perhaps in the courtroom. I'd like to think that dictating about the patient and his/her history helps clarify everything in the treating physician's mind, but I don't think anyone gives more than a cursory glance to the record later. And perhaps when looking for mechanism of injury, a brief narrative helps out... But I'm not sure we are really necessary. All that said, what are we going to do for a living now? Not all of us are 10 years or less from retirement.
OSI transcription?
Anybody have any experience with OSi transcription, good, bad or anything?  I am going to be testing with them.  What is their pay scale (I think most companies range from 7 cpl to 9 CPL).
PT transcription....
Has anyone typed for a PT Department, and how is the dictation. On a level of 1/10 what would you say. I'm currently doing neurosurgery, family medicine, orthopaedic, and pulmonary and thinking of possibly taking a position for a PT Company to do transcription in house. Any info would be greatly appreciated.javascript:editor_insertHTML('text','');
C&C Transcription

Do anybody know anything about this company? I am really interested in applying, but I am a little confused about their test. Does anyone know how many tests to do to apply? Do you pick one category and do all the tests within or several tests within several categories? If someone has applied before I would really appreciate some info on how many I need to do. Thanks.

anyone know much about C&C transcription TIA


Anyone read the article in Advance Magazine stating that transcription will be virtually obsolete as we know it in 3-5 years with take over of the back and front ends of speech recognition. Was curious as to opinions.  Seems like this message has been repeated over and over.
Anyone know anything about T-C Transcription
in Florida?
Is transcription still a hot job?
I am wondering whether all this time and energy is worth it.  I am not trying to be a downer, don't get me wrong.  I am just reading over this board and wondering how we all can stand it anymore.  I've been a Transcriptionist since 1993.  Feeling like crap today.  Hard work, is it worth it to all of you??    or    or    not sure...
transcription course
Andrews School in Oklahoma City works closely with helping you get a job and they are excellent for transcription and coding.
US Transcription
I actually worked for this company for two years and w/out trying to bash, I would simply say to watch yourself.  They have a very high turnover, and make a lot of promises they do not keep.  They also play dirty with pay.  If you work for them for a while you will very likely find out they are hiring new people at more than you make!  Keep yourself informed and in close contact with their other transcriptionists if you decide to work for them!  They also have a very nasty QA person who can be short and rude.  She really wants things done "her way" whether it meets AAMT standards or not!
Why transcription?
Curious to know. What is the main appeal to you?
Why transcription?
I can work from home, set my own hours, be my own boss.  I don't have to worry about what I'm going to do if my son is sick and has to stay home from school.  I don't have to work in an office anymore and deal with the high school mentality and backstabbing that goes on.  I save money on gas, can work in my comfy clothes, and save money on food from not having to eat out every day.  I also enjoy getting to work in the healthcare field, and I love to type!
KMM Transcription

Is anyone familiar with KMM Transcription? I saw they had an ad for IC work, but I could not find anything in the archives on this company.  Just curious! 


usa transcription?

I'm looking for a company called USA Transcription or something like that.  Can anyone help with some possibilities?  I have spent an hour on the archives and could spend hours more....lol



Took a job outside of transcription-bye all gl
