Where do you usually talk about productivity?

I don't see a board for increasing productivity.  I usually just post questions on the main board but think I will get more information if I post questions on the board specifically for productivity.


Have you tried productivity talk? You can also
google it. 
Try Productivity Talk.
Google it, and then search on autocorrect. There should be some tips there on how.

I know how to do it; but I'm on shift right now and can't take the time to walk you through it; sorry. If you haven't figured it out by this afternoon, post again, and I'll see if I can help with more detail then.
There are lots of tips on Productivity Talk.

WOW! Productivity Talk is a gold mine of info!
check out Productivity Talk. Lots of tricks in their SH forum.
Productivity board post
Please view post on productivity board re: SH back up from technologically challenged.
This post should be made on the Productivity board. Thread locked.
All the religious talk in her post and on 'her' -
(doubt it) website definitely raises a red flag. Putting that stuff into sales spiels seems to be a pretty good gimmick for realin' in the suckers.
Like I tried to say in my last post, it PAYS to talk to a CPA about taxes. nm
Thread starting to get out of hand. If you want to talk politics, post
OK ... LOL ... that explains it !! nm
Wow this explains it ....
I was hired by a very nice woman a while ago who has great accounts. I had to also sign a non-compete form. I had no clue exactly why they would ask me to do that and asked them to explain exactly what this clause meant. They explained it and I was left with my mouth hanging open that somebody would really do something as low as stealing an account from somebody who was willing to give you a chance. After reading these other posts "WoW" I had no idea some people were really that low and greedy. But like one poster said, "What goes around comes around." I would not even want to work for somebody so unethical !!! It goes to show how trustworthy that person really is.
That explains it!...
thank you - that explains a lot
I don't think I travel enough to warrant an air card if that is the case.  At relatives's homes that means they have to have a router also and I don't think that is going to be feasible since most of them just have 1 computer.  I guess I need to get something that makes my lap top hook into my router without a cable so I have to be right there.
That explains a lot

No wonder you believe what you do.  If all I had was good dictators, I may not care as much either.  I appreciate reading all of the responses.  Some of you really do get it.  You understand the lack of ethics of cherry picking.  They're robbing the rest of us of income, since our $$/time is reduced with the disproportionate number of bad dictators the ethical MT gets when there are cherry pickers on the account. 

Wow! That certainly explains some things..
Hmm, guess that explains
why Hollywood is so wacky.
I think you're right, that explains it! lol :)
well i guess that explains it
People come on here saying they make upwards of 50k a year but never say how they do it. I suppose they are IC and work all the dang time. I'll take my peanuts and benefits and enjoy my time with my family :D
That explains ALL your childish behavior.
Completely different state, so that explains it!
There is often no work, and lots of posts in the archives about people who have gone there and had no work at all. We are not talking about the same place. I didn't think so. Its a shame. It would be nice for those I know who work there if there was lots of work. Funny that both with the same name don't pay for spaces.
Finally, a thought that explains the mess down there!
That would make sense, those that worked, had familes, had ties all fled when possible. Those few for whatever reasons did not make it out appened to get "stuck" with the lowerclass and those released from jails, which finally explains why in the world anyone whould shot at cops and enlisted servicemen/women trying to come in and help!

Good grief that has been driving me NUTS! As it IS an unAmerican response, unhuman response to distaster. Hecks, we had a string of house fires, and people who battle it out everyday in our area were bound together....we do living in a working class are where most families have two working parents...but still a shame to think that is the cause of this extreme maddness, but at least a better thought then they all just went mad suddenly!!
That explains a great deal. Thanks for the heads up.
I unsure what the rambling incoherence was due to, but that makes more sense than just her being off her meds or something.
So MQ explains how they arrived at the increased production percentage for ASR.
It appears to be a good study with what was excluded.  However, don't tell me about the opportunity for increased financial gain with this so called wonderful increased production of 30% when you decrease my pay by 20%.  The only financial gain I can see in all this is in the profit margin for the company. 
Oh, that explains your open-minded, intelligent demeanor
Maybe this is a better site for you

Eewwww... you don't talk like an MT, you talk like mangement. Ick. (n/m)
Barbara Walters explains today (see clip inside)
I purchased Shorthand and Jon Knowles program. I have about 500 shorthand entries. During downtime, I add more. I have set hours. I get up like I am going out to work. Shower, put on m/up, comb hair, etc. Make coffee/cereal, and do a few household chores before I sign in at 8:30. I do not move until I have done 25 reports. Take a 15 break, take out some for lunch, type 25 more reports. Eat lunch while I am watching a few mins. of Y/Restless. Look at email..Look at local paper online. Email buddy in Texas. On Mondays, take a few minutes to discuss D/Housewives. Type 20 more rports. Watch 15 minutes of Passions. And for the afternoon stretch, I type until I have about 80-90 reports. If my baby stays with my sister, I will type until I have 100-120 reports. During school year, I might type straight through until I have 40 reports. You just have to stay focus. A few days a month, I take an hour lunch away from home to be around grown people. I have been doing this 7 years and gross about 40,000 yr b/c I also do taxes. You have to stay focuses. I plan on making about 52,000 this year. In between I wash a load of clothes, iron, etc....plan meals. Just stay focused. I get depressed if I have a week paycheck less than a grand.

How in the world do you accomplish so many lines.

I am genuinely interested in any advice you might have. I struggle to meet minimums when work is available.


productivity help
I need any advice, tips, cheats that you can offer to get my daily line counts up. I use Instant Text and autocorrect but I still work about 12 hours to get about 900 lines. I'm supposed to be working 8 hours and getting 1080 lines. I am really frustrated...can anybody help, please...
there is a great book called saving Keystrokes available through Amazon.com. It helped me alot.

Can someone help me on productivity board? SM

I didn't know if that board is frequented a lot, but posted a couple questions there.

Thanks so much for your time.


It's like a tic with me. I can't help it. I correct it then. That is BAD for productivity. nm
Please help on Productivity board. TIA nm
See productivity board.
Productivity Board?
Where the heck did the productivity board go?
That was the best program ever, especially for productivity. sm
That was always my argument against Windows - it slowed everything down, but progress moves on and I was forced to move on.

Now, I can just only remember what a great program that was for what we do.

productivity programs

Our company is currently using Winscribe dictation system, but they did not buy the transcription side of this, which creates a database and templates and saves the work to a file. 

I am looking for productivity program that works the same way that is reasonable.  ADS may be one but I have no feedback on this. 

Any suggestions.


Bayscribe productivity.....

For anyone who uses Bayscribe, do you do real well productivity wise on one account and then accomplish absolutely nothing on others?  The short notes, the in and out, in and out business; it takes up so much time, I have just spent over 2 hours with just under 200 lines.   Is anyone else's experience the same?

BayScribe productivity
I have 2 accounts that I work on, and I do seem faster on one of them which is the more difficult one oddly enough. I don't feel like I go in and out a lot. I love the fact that everything is done on 1 screen (demographics, transcription, and copies). Having to toggle through a ton of screens is one of the reasons I left my last company.
Here is a macro from Productivity.com
Productivity Site
I am fairly new to Instant Text.  However, there is a site at:  http://www.productivitytalk.com/forums/index.php  This site specializes in MT productivity and there are several very experienced people here.  Check it out, you'll be glad you did.
IC productivity question HELP PLEASE
I need some advice please!!! I work for an IC company where I edit reports. My problem is that I cannot see my productivity. The only one that has access to my productivity is the hospital which then returns it to my company and they email me my stats for the entire pay period. I guess what I am wondering is that I am new to the whole IC world and was wondering if I should put my trust into the hospital to give my company my correct stats. I asked my company if there is another way around this and they said no!!!! PLEASE RESPOND WITH YOUR ADVICE GOOD OR BAD!!!
No productivity access
Did you request a copy of the productivity log submitted by the hospital? That is all you have to do if your company did not submit one to you automatically. In addition, keep your own private long with accession numbers and times, anything you would need to support a discrepancy. There are a lot of programs out there that do not support that type of operation, so do not think you are being lied to. Just make sure they are right.
How to increase productivity

The more targeted your glossaries are, the faster you get to your words and phrases. Are you using doctor- or specialty-specific glossaries combined with your own base glossary?

Are you concentrating on phrases rather than on words? The big keystroke savings kick in when you concentrate on the phrases your doctors say all the time.

More about productivity at the link below. I hope it will give you some quick tips.


Go to Harrie's Productivity web site. There

are wonderful ideas there for every expander, and a lot of help with other programs like word and WP as well.

Your company cannot tell if you use an expander.  You have already set your mind to the idea that you cannot because that would not be verbatim, so you need to have a litle bit of an attitude adjustment, too.   It makes no difference if Dr. Jones dictates:  "The patient was taken to the operating room", it is still the same phrase and I can type that using 5 characters and it comes out the same.  Or I can use 4  characters and have it say "the patient was brought to the operating room".  I am an extremely high producer, doing approximately 400 lph on a very difficult account, verbatim, with 95% ESLs.  But the phrases, instruments, and anatomy all stay the same.  I just make modifications in my Shorthand to accommodate the differences.  And no, I cannot memorize my shortcuts, but I do utilize about 3 different systems for shortcuts, and have about 22,000 words and phrases in there. 


Did I just dream there was a productivity board here now?
Is there anything on the Productivity or Technical board?

productivity for speech files

does anyone have any pointers that can help my productivity with voice files.  Voice recognition board not working and productivity board says go to main board.  Help if you can.


Productivity per hour confuses me...? sm
Companies always ask about my 'lines per hour'.  What the heck is average?  I type 90 wpm.  Took a normal report once, counted the lines, did all the calculations with time and what-not to try and come up with a 'per hour' quota but I came up with 800+ or something and that seems crazy. Unless that sounds possible, anyone know the typical average for lines per hour?
