One thing about wading thru pages and pages looking for negatives, is...
it really does show that the seller is overall very good. Know what I mean?  There will always, always, always be those customers who are impossible to please, especially on E-Bay.  I've gotten almost all my negatives from leaving calm, but justifiable negatives when the buyer had stiffed me and not gone thru with the sale. We are called to leave these negatives as sellers to warn the community, but instantly we will get flamed with a retaliatory negative that is a total lie.  So, now most sellers don't leave justified negatives anymore! That said, really, if you have to wade thru page after page to find even 1 negative, I would say you're safe bidding, as long as the feedback is current!
Prob is then you may get all fast fast fast talkers...not a fair way nm
?? I see all as usual, pages ad pages. NM
What are you loading them into??? sm
Not sure exactly what procedure you're following.  Could you be more specific?
Loading a wave file

Can someone help me?  I just got a Infinity pedal to play wave files and I just loaded Express Scribe's free download. 

Here is my question:  I get my files via an email attachment, so how do I download it into Express Scribe.  Do I have to save the attachment somewhere else in a word file or something and then load it from there?  Hope this makes sense.  Again, I'm new at this so anything will help.  Thank you in advance for the help.

EditScript loading difficulties

I am supposed to be starting on the EditScript software today, but I can't seem to get a report loaded. I installed it using the password I was given by my vendor, but I seem to be stuck on the 'Initializing Your Dictation List.." window. I can't seem to access anything from the blue open folder. I have never used this software before, and this is the second time I have had problems getting in. Any idea what I did wrong? I get a "Microsoft Visual Basic Runtime error '424': Object Required" message every time I load it. What does that mean? I have tried to reboot, but I get a red box that warns me that if I exit the system this way, I will either not get paid or other people won't be able to access the queque. My vender is unavailable for comment. 

P.S. This is my first job!

EditScript loading difficulties
Just in case anyone else is having a similar problem; I just spoke with the ES technician and was told that with Runtime Error 424, this was a typical first time loading problem, and all I needed to do was to go the directory where the files were loaded, find the Word file labeled EditScript Headliners and delete it. He said I should have no further problems. I'll let you know...
I have had a similar problem when loading the program--sm
I found that I have to absolutely have every other program I have closed, including my email. Sometimes I have to load it more than once before it will become effective. Just my experiences.
Are you loading your pics to a host site? NM
Well it said there are no drivers or anything else and I have no idea about loading a driver.
It works fine in DQS so I dont know about this.  I guess I will just forget the job because it is a very long test and to do it with key controls is horrible.
depends how fast the MT is......No one would want to pay me by the hour because I'm fast.
how fast you can type, has little to do with how fast you can transcribe
Let's face it, we can only type as fast as the doctors dictate... worse, we can only type as fast as we can *understand* the doctors.  Given someone who slurs or has a heavy accent, someone who clears his throat constantly or shuffles through the paper, given an unfamiliar account or work type, or an area we don't have much experience in and have to look up words, etc., any and all of these things combine to make typing speed not really relative at all.  I personally type 110, but not when I'm transcribing.  I tell most folks who ask, if you type 65-75 wpm, you're solidly in the ballpark for doing medical transcription.
web pages
No that I wanted links posted - would be nice - but just curious if other shave a site or myspeace page for their own benefit.

I appreciate your info
need some reference web pages?

Hi all,

If you would like some web pages to add to your "favorites," feel free to visit my website at:





In 1985, when their BOS was only 85 pages....sm

Back in the 80s, AAMT used to care about all the MTs.  Their BOS was only 85 pages long (I still have one of these BOS....a gold book, very tall and very skinny)....then the AAMT got big and it all went to their heads and their 2nd edition BOS is close to something like 600+ pages long.  And now they support offshoring to India/Pakistan.  At that point, they no longer cared about the USA MTs.

Later for the AAMT..........*L*.......MUCH later.

Yellow pages

Since my phone is listed under my business name I get a free listing and have gotten quite a few one-time only jobs, seminars, interviews, etc. that really pay well and not needing a 24 TAT and it has worked for me.   Also no 1099's with then as it is a one time job.   Last year got a 10 tape seminiar on pet therapy and it was almost $2,000 for the seminar done in our spare time over 2 weeks.   Just my 2 cents worth. 

1st one in the 1980s was 85 pages....sm

the first AAMT BOS was 85-90 pages long back in 1985....the one I have today, Second Edition bought 2 years ago....has I do believe 600 pages.....

so your question about what has changed cannot be answered in the post here......get yourself a copy ??  Can be ordered right from their site....aamt.org 

That is at the top of all pages - I forgot about it! Thanks. (NM)

and many are 3-4 pages long....sm

I loved them, back in the days - a lot of these reports are EXPERT WITNESS reports too...and perhaps the dictator has not even seen the patient....just reporting based on medical records/radiology, et cetera.  Most of mine (back in the days) were 3-4 pages long, done for orthopaedists and/or chiropractors. 


I understand, I think it is just here lately the pages are full of nothing but MQ and then
it turns into arguments and nasty remarks, and so forth.

It isnt really the talking about MQ, it is just the bickering going on about it.

I understand completely about wanting to discuss some things.

I dont really mind the MQ posts, but they are so large in number.

I hope things clear up. Maybe if you and other MQ employees that have a lot of time with them all take some "time off" at the same time, they could get the idea they need you guys.

I guess if I was with someone for that length of time, I would have the same feelings.

I really do wish you the best and I dont want you to think anyone has singled you out. It is the whole MQ thing.

I think we are all scared because MQ is a leading company and scared that they are ruining the whole MT business for us all.

We would all love to see MQ split up or downsize and not be such a big part of the industry. Then again we dont want to see people out of a job either.
Wow, almost 4 pages of the stuff, someone has been busy, nothing better
I knew I saw this a few pages ago and searched for you.
Here's a link
2nd edition over 600 pages long....sm
your client is out of touch........*lol*
What about the pages where you only type a few lines?
You're still making out better getting paid per page. I know I am.
Spoke too soon. Only working on some pages, not all. nm
Even on pages where no lewd content, often
For OTHER pages, scroll the other way or go to the View menu. SM
Look for Text Size. It won't fix the huge text on this page, though.
Pages are very slow to open for me tonight, some not at all. Anyone else? nm
Need to ask about docs saying "use my normal," too. Could be a few pages if an op! nm
Go through your local yellow pages and call
companies who advertise they offer health insurance.  Call several companies as the premiums can vary widely, although the coverage will be the same.   I did this and called 6 different companies and the premiums varied as much as $200.00/mo for the same exact insurance.   Celtic was the company that had the best rate for us, but that was nearly 4 years ago.   If you have no pre-existing conditions you can get a temporary insurance through Fortis for 6 months to a year depending on your state, provided that you have not been without coverage for greater than 45 (I think) days.   You can also go on-line to einsurance.com and get an idea of rates, though I still suggest you call local agencies.  
Do a search for 'happy with your job' or something like that. This was discussed a few pages b
Check out Jon Barron's health pages
Good info and will help you.  Liver detox is for real and don't listen to anyone saying it isn't.  Too many people helped by this.  Jon Barron and Herbert Shelton can't be wrong.  Don Colbert, M.D. also recommends this.  Get Paul Bragg's book on fasting.  Can't go wrong.  Good luck to you.
Go through you local yellow pages and call
companies that offer health insurance and get a quote.  Call several because the premiums can vary significantly.  BCBS may have a low rate, but they are a pain in the rear to deal with and deny more claims than they pay. 
Is the whole net slow or just these boards?? Taking pages
Search the archives box at the top of forum pages.
I do a minimal amount and the letter was about 2 pages long but mostly about ASR.
Try Yahoo yellow pages in the area the doctor
looking for free jeff gordon coloring pages
for my 4 year old son.  does anybody know of any links?  I've found several but none with coloring pages.  thanks!
Headers and Footers can carry on to the rest of the pages.
How long are the pages or are you just doing sticky notes to be slapped
Is anyone else missing the complete list in the blue box? Pages seem to be smaller, too. nm
Some rates were posted a few pages back. Search the Google
Working in Word, and suddenly my screen splits into two pages, and I can't reverse it. HELP!
Does anyone know what I've done and what I can do to get it back to just one window? It is Word 2003 on a XP platform, if that helps any. Thanks.

Has anyone used Tessier paper back version 5 x 8 book with over 2000 pages - does that make it hard
Oh, forgot to say all the phones ringing, overhead speaker blurting out pages, background talking
dictator's cell phones ringing, kids yelling from dictator being at home, machines in the ICU beeping off and on during the entire dictation, saws going from casts being removed nearby, and you can just imagine all the other noises such as nose blowing, sniffling, chomping on food while dictating, and on and on.  EXSpeech doesn't like those noises, so the machine lets the MT"s transcribe those YUKKY reports all day long and all night long.  Exspeech gets the good guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
RUN, RUN, RUN, as fast
You do not want to work for SS. They lie, steal lines, and will work you 7 days a week for as many hours as you are willing and you won't get paid accurately. Their line counter is always "down" and you can't track lines accurately.
run very fast
I too am an ex-IC for eTranz and this company is not professional at all. I consistently received paychecks 2 weeks late. Deb Garrison, the owner, if very unprofessional, hollering on the phone, hanging up on you. There is no communication in this company whatsoever. There are some very good companies out there. Please do not work for this company.
Get out fast!!
Well you definitely need to get out fast. Easier said than done I know I lived it. He sounds like my exhusband except throw in some cheating as well. He called me every name in the book and never wanted to do anything around the house but griped about it constantly. He stayed out and drank and everything else under the sun. He was also violent and would throw things and hit things. I feel your pain. It took me one night just finally getting my fill. No crying occurred like before. No yelling. Just me calming saying that was it I would be leaving and wanted a divorce and by two weeks I was gone along with our son, not quite 3 at the time. It is hard to leave financially and emotionally but sometimes you reach that point. Get out as best you can if you can!
Run as fast as you can
from AIM platform. It is more like typing in fields such as data entry.
I need help, fast!

I'm losing my job at the hospital in two weeks due to outsourcing and have decided to go it on my own.  I have $800.00 in my budget to spend on a digital dictation system.  Do you suggest I buy a phone-in system or an Internet software system and what brand names of each/or do you recommend?  How much does the average one cost?

Thanks very much for your help.  I have to move fast because my money is fast dwindling down and I want to make sure I make a wise and good investment so I can get moving in trying to find clinic accounts.

Need help fast
Before you jump into unchartered waters, I suggest that you start as an IC with a small national. You said you are a newbie. You still have much to learn. It takes a few years to hone your craft and be able to work independently without assistance. I would be afraid you would be biting off a little more than you can chew right now. Not trying to insult you. I have been around for a long time and would hate to see you make an investment like that and have to struggle. Find a position with a small national doing multispecialties for a couple to three years.
