don't type double spaces. Type single. Then no one will be cheated.
I can type with wine, can't type with coffee, though...too jittery.
That is, type the code above before and after what you want bolded in the text-to-type box. nm
For me it isn't an account type but a dictator type ...
and that would be oriental. An oriental dictator (hahaha, that kind of sounds funny...hahaha) is the most challenging for me.
No, you don't type directly into ES. You type in Word -
or whatever their platform is, just like you did with your tapes.

Then you do your line count in Word or the platform.
You should type them. I usually type them in parentheses following the diagnosis.
remind me, type what they say, type what they say, type....
"He indicated that at the beginning of the year he complained of health problems recently but has gotten better."  C'mon doc, which one is it?????
Shorthand users: Is there a way to type a word, use a slash and then type another word..sm

immediately following the slash and have it expand.  For example if I needed to transcribe mass/sebaceous cyst, is there a way to use my expanded sebaceous cyst without having to back space after I type the slash mark?  TIA

Right above where you type (SM)

There is a "T" with a colored block.  You can highlight the text you want to color, click on that block, and then click on the color you want to make it. :)

I hope your kitty will be around for more years to come.  I know 19 is very old for a kitty.  :(  It's hard to think about losing one of our "babies."

Take care,


TV on while you type?
Do you keep the television on while you type?  I think I would get alot more done if I would stop watching TV and stop surfing the web!
If you don't know what type you have,

you probably don't have an FTP server.  You would have to know that to set it up and configure it. 

FTP stands for file transfer protocol, which just means that it's a way to upload and download files from a server using the Internet.  If you'd like free FTP software for a potential job, you can download CoreFTP for free from Download.com at the following link.


how would you type this?

How would you type "section 8 housing"?  Would it be Section 8 housing, Section -8 housing, Section-8 Housing or Section 8 Housing?


Tabatha in Charleston, SC

you type what?
Ummmmmmm, okay! LOL!
you never type don't or can't but only do not and cannot etc...lol

If all you have to do is type....
and they do all the rest (if you are subcontracting through a service), after the 25% take, they are paying you 9.75 cents per line and that is better than most national companies. Plus, hopefully, you do not have to learn 100 or more dictators! If this is the case, go for it!
Does anyone have any info on USA TYPE?  Thanks
Has anyone heard back from USA type after they have tested for them?  thanks
usa type
I think she must have gotten a big response to the job post and hopefully is just sorting things out.
usa type
How long after you took the test were you called?
usa type
that's interesting . . . sheri told me herself last January that she was selling her medtrans business and wouldn't be hiring any more. . . . .
type it
it doesnt matter if it is someone you know. you still have a job to do while adhering to patient confidentiality.
we have to type it out now? aw man
Just my type ....
Believe me, he'd approach me in a bar .... Just like the late 60's fella with the hot pink sport jacket, rug on his head, and POLYESTER black slacks .... and this was not THAT long ago!! LOLOLOL
type OP.
Type what they say
I was taught to fix them a little bit if needed.  Of course, I work in a teaching hospital and you can do that.  With the foreign docs, they don't make any sense sometimes and get words wrong.  We can fix them, but if they are hard dictators, we just type what they say and let them worry about it.  I have been thanked for doing this for 19 years. 
Is it Type 2 or Type II?
I have been typing Type 2 because I thought it changed but just got corrected. 
Type 2
It's Type 2.  At www.diabetes.com and www.diabetes-facts.com they both have it as Type 2.  Even if you search for Type II and logon to their site they have it as Type 2.  The main thing is how your MT company or physician prefers you to type it.
Type 2
AAMT (2nd edition) shows type 2 diabetes mellitus

i got a call thurs from ann at all type in response to my resume, called her back 3X and she's never called me back. not impressed.
My dog is in my lap as I type this
Was thinking of getting a second dog so he would have someone to play with but after reading your post, that may not be the case! Don't you love it when then sleep? Yup, a tired doggy is a happy doggy.
Why do they always type like
they r in a chat room for teens?  LOL
all type
Good luck to you!
Just type what they say.
ok...here it is, i will type it as

i do it myself so i dont miss a step (it's early for me - PST!!)

Click START.  click ALL PROGRAMS.  Find the program you want a shortcut to be on your desktop.  If that program has an arrow pointing to the right, it means it will open up with more choices.  Move your cursor on top of the program you want...not the manual or uninstall but the actual program.  RIGHT CLICK on that program and you will see a menu. Click on CREATE A SHORTCUT.  It will create one in the menu you have open with a (....2) after it.  Click-and-drag that shortcut, the name with the 2 after it, to your desktop. 

Do this for every program that you want an icon on your desk. 

Those icons will have the number 2 after it and if you dont like that, right click on the icon and click rename and you can take that out.   When the name of the program is lit up in blue, hit END on your computer keyboard and that will take you to the end of the name, then backspace until you erase the 2.  Or you can rename the whole icon if you want...when it lights up in blue just start typing the name you want to rename it to.

that's it the way i understand it!!

How are you able to type in it?

I have tried both of these suggestions, which work just in creating the letterhead, but I am unable to type into it.  Can anyone help me past this point?

Thank you again!

All Type
I am wondering if there are any transcriptionists on here who currently work for All Type located in New Jersey?  I was offered employment by them upon successfully completing their on line test, sent in all required paperwork to them, had an on-line/telephone training course for the platform, email sent to me that I will be working with so and so this evening, have not heard from so and so, and nothing is happening as far as me actually getting going to work for them----all this very time consuming for me on top of it all.  Any input would be appreciated. 
All Type

Would like to hear from anyone who has worked for or is still currently working for All Type, Inc. located in New Jersey.  All pros and cons of working for this company are welcomed. 

that would be had ME type in..... nm
May not want to type that!

This is a good example of what I am trying to say....In the search box I put "People's Support Transcription".  When I got to my options, I saw a response from this web site; about the second one down.  Did you know that our posts are not exclusive to MT Stars?  They go out for the WORLD to see!!

Only 1 job. Type about 135 wpm and
Have always done very well at this work.

Have to type it but not appropriate

I agree with all of you when we say we have to type what the doctor says.  Unfortunately, I wish we could type everything that the doctor says including cussing at equipment and talking to everyone but the dictation machine because then maybe just maybe they'd learn to dictate.  However, I agree with the poster that this is inappropriate in a medical document.  The doctor's religious beliefs have nothing to do with the level of care the patient is receiving.  We don't know the patient's religious beliefs. 

There is a doctor I used to have to dictate who would say in reports that she told the patient she will not prescribe birth control because she does not believe in it.  That's fine and dandy but what did that have to do with this patient's clinic visit?  The appropriate thing to say would have been, "I referred her to another OB/GYN for birth control."  Short and sweet without extraneous information. 

What this doctor said was extraneous information that was not appropriate for a medical report.  Obviously it is appropriate to offer spiritual support to a patient with the same beliefs but not necessary to state that in the report. 

I type it.
especially in psych and forensics, you type it verbatim
One type of EMR that I have seen....sm
was in my kids' doctor's office.  He used a stylus to touch the screen for certain things as the office visit progressed.  I assume the software templates the information into a comprehensive report for the record.  In this instance, no editing is required as the doctor does not actually dictate the information.
One way to have SH type it for you is SM
to type Control-K. Then do the Keystrokes you would normally type. The computer will record your strokes and insert the symbols Cate shows for you.

You would bold a portion of an entry the same way, using Control-K to tell the computer you want it to record the bold function. And so on.
You have to type it according to the
If it is verbatim and they don't want you expanding abbrevs in the diagnosis section, then don't.

It's not up to you.

It sounds like you have problems doing what the MTSO or client want. The mistakes you mention are completely avoidable by simply following the instructions and completing the job in the manner you were hired to.

Tell her you will type what is on it,
especially if you did not charge the first time for the duplicate reports as you have been down this road before. Definitely do not WASTE your time by listening through first and making a patient list. You might suggest that the doctor separate his reports out in teh future as he dictates and then the office staff can make a list and give to you with the flashdrives. That way, if there is a patient on the list and you do not get you, you can let them know.
We type 2-3/10.
I could but do not type that much now
as using VR so the speed thingy would be off, I would think.
They'd be....sorry....type much??? nm
Where do you type exactly?
Are you behind a locked door? I know my kids and husband and any number of people are prone to wander through my work area. When I'm working in the office, I have maintenance men, staff from other offices, and other patients passing by/through. Especially since nobody at Starbucks knows what I'm typing, they won't think it's worth looking at. Taking sensible precautions is the key.
